Diet Mentality

Today err...Yesterday since it's 12:38am

Uhh yea anyway Monday 3/28/11 (<--Yea! that's what I'm trying to say!) I weighed my self again since Sunday my scale decided to play mind tricks with me and this morning..err you know what I mean! Anyway the scale said 220.6 which is what I was expecting to see Sunday -__-
Which means that in total since my start date 2/14/11 I have lost 21.4 pounds!!! I'm very excited about this!!

So! before I go off into Lala-land I wanted to talk about stuff.

Ok so this past week I went back on Phase 1 of the South Beach diet, it was actually a heck of a lot easier to do this time around! So I'm eating salads, drinking water (sort of), and I exercised but this weigh-in I only lost 2.4lbs or 3lbs (however you want to look at it) Now please note that I'm always excited to see any amount of weight loss because that means I'm still moving forward, but after restricting myself to certain foods again and only seeing such a low number I was slightly disappointed. Moral of the story? Me trying to go back to Phase 1 and rush my weight loss wasn't the brightest idea I've ever had LOL! It wasn't worth giving up bread, cereal, oatmeal, pasta etc for an entire week just to lose 2.4lbs

Also I wanted to say stop calling what we're doing diets (I know I just said "South Beach Diet" earlier, but bare with me lol). A diet is something that you will eventually come off and basically erase all of your hard work when you go back to your old eating habits.
I believe that to lose weight and maintain that weight-loss it takes Patience, Will Power, Motivation, Exercise and most important of all a Life-style change; meaning eating healthier foods, controlling your portion sizes and not just pigging out like a Fat Chick just because the food is placed in front of you.

Everyone's situation may be a little different, but for me I'm using the South Beach Diet (Life-Style Changer!)as a way to teach myself healthy eating habits. It's my manual, my guide and I know that what I learn from it I can carry on with me waaay after I've reached my goals. South Beach is not the only way to change, it was just a convenient resource for me to use. (Mom had the book so I said "Hey, why not?")

I can't speak for you, but I will not let myself become a statistic! My goals are going to be accomplished...what about you?
