Hey gals! I've been going through a huge life change these last 4 months, I broke up with my abusive ex of 7 years and moved to New York for a new job. It's been hard, but I've already been so amazingly blessed in my life since I moved here. I love it!!!! But along with life changes comes changes in eating habits too. Too much drinking on weekends and too many nights out on the town with amazing food and AMAZING desserts!!!!!! I haven't gained alot of weight(maybe 5 lbs or so) because I've been tappin' and belly dancing the whole time, but I am starting to notice more pudge in my face and my pants are a little tighter. booooo!!!!! SO I am asking my t-tapping sisters for some advice and encouragement to tell those evil desserts and drinks no when they're staring me in the face. (I feel so horrible after I eat them anyway! Yuck!!!!!!)
I am sitting at a desk all day doing art work, and everyone at my job loves junk food. Unfortunately I bought a huge bag of Halloween M&M's on sale and I've been munching on those all week! Yuck. I feel very bloated and gross, but I also know my period is coming up so that contibutes to it as well.... and that's why I've been craving so many sweets in the first place.
I feel like i'm addicted to sugar again, which is sooooo bad. a year ago the only sugar i'd have is 2 squares of high quality dark chocolate a day. I was very proud of that! :P I have been lacking in the vegetable intake area as well, since I work long hours and don't get to cook as much as i'd like.... Also I've been dating alot and going to restaurants most nights of the week for dinner, and sometimes for lunch too. (expensive and fattening!) I am very lucky I haven't gained 10 lbs or more from all the food!!!!! T-tapp is amazing, I 've only been doing sit down and basic plus a few times a week.
I guess I know what i need to do, eat GM as much as possible, stop snacking on M&M's.... say no to dessert so often..... Cook at home more and take lunches and snacks to work) I just need to start eating clean before I find myslef 10 - 20 lbs heavier. I just need some encouragement, and some accountability. Maybe I will start a thread for cutting down sugar, as I plan not to do it cold turkey cause that'll cause me to binge. I want my skinny pants to fit again!
Anyone want to join me?
