You’re freakin jeans don’t fit!!!!
Downloaded the Diets2go app on my new Android this morning. I’m not sure why, considering I never seem to follow diets. It has nothing to do with disapline or being restriction, mind you. It has to do that I have a erratic appetite. There will be weeks were I literally have no interest in food. Then, without warning, I feel like I could devour a banquet solo. Obviously being on a “eating” schedule isn’t my thing. I believe in eating when you are physically hungry.
Now, having said this, whatever I am eating, I need to stop. My jeans feel snug- nuff said.
I was eating 95% vegan last year, meaning the majority of meals I ate had no animal products in them. Then the Summer came and my boyfriend and I reunited. That lead to trips to the ice cream shop and dinners out. That was fine. It really didn’t affect my weight. In fact, during the end of the Summer, I tried to put on weight, because between working out and my eating habits, I felt that I had gotten a bit skeletal. I looked fine in clothes, but naked…um, sort of gross. Has anyone else noticed how breast totally become deformed when you loose weight??? Anywho…
So, I put on weight the best way that I knew how- I ate a lot of junk. Now, i’m trying to shed a little off, and just be a bit more balanced in terms of how I eat and weigh and all that jazz. I want to go back to eating vegan, and I also want to get my portions under control.
People always talk about loosing weight, or even sometimes gaining weight, but few talk about maintaining. It can be difficult. Part of the reason I decided to do this blog is because I wanted to have something tangible to look at during the process. I’ll write what I am doing or not doing down, and then I can adjust as necessary.
Sadly, I am a person of extremes, and it really shows when it comes to my health habits. Either I am eating a very regimented, clean diet or just eating crap. Sometimes I work out with the precision of a soldier, and other times I am lazy about my form. It’s clear that the issue is balance. I need to find balance between the two. I need to not become complacent.
