I have taken a stand, drawn a line in the sand and I am saying no more. No more drinking at home and nibbling away to my hearts content. No more resorting to a drink after a hectic day and then bashing myself senseless the next day. I told my husband on Monday this is it, I have to lose weight. I hate the way I look, I hate myself for being weak and blowing it all the time. This is a time in my life where I should be rejoicing, confident in who I am, living the good life. Instead I am not looking at myself in the mirror, not buying nice clothes, because I refuse to buy a size 18 and that's the next step for me. Gawd I was a 8 to 10 as a teen and a 10 - 12 after babies. Now I am buying an XL or 16 no more okay no more. So we decided together not to enable each other to drink at home. We are not even going to drink out this week. I know is this a blog about eating and losing weight or alcohol consumption, I know, where am I going? But I so firmly believe that the two for me are linked. Alcohol makes me chillax, feel free, until the next day, when I am riddled with guilt, then I eat when I am drinking too. So I have to find out the emotional reasons why I am doing this to myself. I am addicted to feeling relaxed, chilled, cool, and booze does that for me so I am addicted to booze. I am also addicted to sabotaging myself, calling myself horrid names, blaming myself for my weakness, all those things to, I must be otherwise I would have lost all this weight when I started this way of eating way back in March this year. I believe the Primal / Paleo lifestyle will work for me. I love food and I love to eat and on this plan you can, it's all about cutting out the carbs and making my body consume the fat it is carrying for energy.
Who wouldn't want to eat this for breakfast and still lose weight? SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!
So I have crossed the line and I am going to stay committed. Truly I am. Oh and I found this brilliant blog to help me with some meals you have to check it out.
