I’m honestly getting so tired of this diet/life change! I’m starting to get the unhealthy thoughts of, “ maybe I rather be fat and happy than skinny and miserable” because I miss FOOD so much! There are not many healthy foods that satisfy me and all I do is think about/crave unhealthy food.. break down and eat it.. then feel terrible about myself after. I’m so happy I have lost 20 pounds and still have 60 (at least) to go but I’m so miserable and don’t know what to do.. I’m trying so hard to not give up but I can’t stop crying right now .
Focus on the happiness of when you know you lost weight. That’s what I do. I love junk food but I focus on being healthy and losing more. When I step on that scale at the end of the month and see a few pounds gone all those nights of craving was worth it !
Listen, keeping yourself from eating what you want on occasion and in moderation is the quickest way to jump off the wagon. I love soda, like more than chocolate. I probably have a can or two of soda a week now rather than the liter and a half I used to drink daily. I’ve tried cutting everything I wanted out of my diet before and I gained twenty pounds by the end of the three months. This time around, it’s been much easier and I’ve dropped 90 pounds in seventeen months.
