YAY Kelly! That's AMAZING!!!!!!! What a triumph! Not only did you resist Queen Baby and do what was good for your body, YOU told yourself the TRUTH! Can I also please say that you were "WALKING to work!!!!!! How awesome is that??????
And please, you are so beautiful... tell yourself THAT next time you catch your reflection in the window! I'm so proud of you! You're on your way!!! You go girl!
I know, I'm sort of in shock myself! I really think my elevated blood sugar was holding onto my fat, and now that it seems to be resolved, my body is releasing my fat stores like crazy! I have to say that another thing that is working for me is that I am moving ALOT more during the day and in the evenings! I'm even sleeping better!
Plus, I can absolutely say that I am no longer over-eating. I think I was using the "you can eat all you want" mentality of this diet to feed my gluttony...ugly word, I know, but I have had to learn to call it what it is. As a compulsive overeater/food addict, I can honestly admit that I was a glutton. My prayer for lent this year has been that God would free me from this bondage to food and that He would be my "MORE." That I might be truly satisfied in Him, at the deepest level, so that I no longer try to fill myself with things that will never satisfy. So, for lent I felt called to give up the three demons that were keeping my tied to this cruel master of food addiction...Sugar, Oil, and Salt...and after seeing the Goldhammer lecture, I was convicted that I had been holding on to those three things, and they were feeding my addictions. I can honestly say that now I am tasting foods the way they SHOULD be...whole and wholesome and nourishing...and I am eating what my body needs, not constantly craving things it doesn't. I am able to be satisfied with much less, and the constant struggle has lifted.
Believe me, I spent sooooo many years stuck in the cycle of being controlled by food and hating myself for failing time and time again, and making and breaking promises to myself...if I can break out of this destructive pattern...anyone can do this! I am not special. I just finally listened to the truth and made a committment to do this thing once and for all because I got so tired of NOT doing it that I just couldn't go on like that anymore...Turns out...THIS WORKS!!!! Who Knew?
