I’m all about good food. Seriously, I am. Home-cooked meals are definitely my favorite though. Stews in crock pots, casseroles in dutch ovens, delicious chicken on a grilling pan. Oh, I’m making myself hungry just thinking about all of those amazing dishes I could be devouring.
Yes, it’s a must to eat, but too much of it can be a bad thing, especially for someone with an anxiety disorder. When I was diagnosed with GAD, I was put on a type of pill that would inevitably add on extra pounds. ARGH. 😦 No, I’m not going to blame my weight gain on taking pills; however, I publicly declare that I’m going to do something about it. …so I have put myself to the challenge.
I want to prove that I can lose THIRTY pounds. …in SIX months. That’s FIVE pounds every month starting the month of September. That gives me until the end of February to lose THIRTY pounds. ((Oh, save me! What did I get myself into?!))
I’ve done it before, and I can do it again. I want to prove to myself that I can do this without any of those diet pills, diet fads, or any type of needless surgery. With just straight up exercise, meal alterations, and a change in lifestyle, I’m going to prove to myself that this can be done.
The fact that I outwardly expressed my want to change means that I got over the hump in this battle, right? I can do it and be healthy again. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. Sigh.
I’m going to need all the support in the world.
Goodbye bad food, hello healthy food!
PS: No, this does not mean that I’m going to stop bloggin’ about scrapbooking, lol. I wouldn’t give that up for the world. 😉
