I’ve lost 20 lbs in the last six weeks on this diet. I’m liking it a lot, eating much better than I used to and not really missing most of the things I’m supposed to avoid. Nor do I feel hungry or deprived. Considering this is the first serious effort I’ve made at changing my eating habits in over five years, so far, so good.
I’m feeling like I’ve lost the defeatist attitudes of the past. I’m more mature and realistic than I’ve ever been. Maybe it’s the 40 thing; being at an age where it has to be more about health than vanity. At least for me. I can’t ignore heredity and all the little things already occurring anymore. The problems I’ll have later don’t need to be compounded because I refused to step up. That’s just stupid.
Like I said: so far, so good.
