I Like To Eat

It's a fact. I like to eat. I like good food. It's hard not to judge myself against what other people are doing. I read on MyFitnessPal people who are around my weight and trying to eat only 1200 calories - not even factoring in exercise. I couldn't do that. I don't want to feel like I'm on a diet. Honestly... I don't right now. I'm losing but still eating. My portions are smaller. I think twice about having a lot of bread or rice. Yesterday, I met someone at work that had lost of ton of weight since September. I didn't have a chance to ask how she was doing it... but then I saw her have a shake for breakfast and lunch. I couldn't do that! I'm sure I could lose a ton of weight too if I only had liquids for 2 meals a day. The weight would just come right back though.

Puerto Rico was wonderful. I went to the gym... but I also enjoyed myself. I ate - within some amount of reason - and drank a bit of alcohol... I did gain from the week. I didn't freak out. It's been 4 days and I'm a pound away from the weight I was before I left. I think that's worth it. I didn't use the vacation as an excuse to go crazy... but I didn't count every calorie... and that's okay.

I'm in a good place. It's been a month and I have something to show from my efforts. Here's a sweaty picture of me... I had just gotten down on the dance floor.
