Good day all, I hope you've all woken up with a spring in your step .
I thought that I would post an observation. I'm in the middle of the sixth week of my lifestyle change and I was reviewing my posts.
The second one was 4 and a half days in to the process and I posted how I was dreading the weekend. As I read that old post, I realised that the coming weekend is almost here and I hadn't thought about it... I don't think I've given weekends much consideration for a few weeks now.
My problem, was that in my 'old' lifestyle the weekend definitely meant drinking alcohol to excess and of course drinking leads to over indulgence when it comes to food. This is a routine that goes back decades. I didn't paint myself in glory that first weekend, though I managed to knock back my calorie intake substantially. Now I realise that my mindset has altered.
When I wrote "'old' lifestyle" just now, I put the word, old, in quotes. This is because I appreciate just how new this stillis and I'm not taking it for granted that I've got it licked, in fact I've had some difficult days mentally this week, however, I'm really happy with the way things are progressing.
Bon voyage mes amis!
