To pick back up from part five I had lost twenty-five pounds and was happy with that. But this is where my decision to make this a life-style and not a diet came into play.
I didn’t change what I was eating because I was at goal weight. In fact I wanted to learn more about how to live a healthy life and started picking up Cleaning Eating magazines and Eating Light and anything else that looked interesting and would help me stay on track.
I was concerned that around Christmas I might put on weight because of all of the get-togethers. I ate what I wanted but I didn’t stuff myself as I used to do in the past. And guess what? By January I had lost another five pounds. I couldn’t believe it.
When I first started this journey on my other blog I had a written it would be great if I could lose thirty pounds but I never really thought I would, but there I was.
I could feel this excitement building in me about health and I wanted to share it with others. I was constantly on Pinterest or reading a magazine, or looking up new websites to find recipes.
I toyed with the idea of starting a blog about health but thought I was might be crazy since I already have my other one, I am not an expert and this is a very busy time of year for me.
But one snow day I just did it and this blog came to life. It is an outlet for me to share this journey, my passion and help me record what I am eating and I really enjoy it. I appreciate each of you who read this, I know there are only a few of you but thank you for your time.
Next week I will share where I am now and where I am going on this journey!
