Changing my diet to eat right has not been a walk in the park for me. I have been on a healthy course for about four months now, but I have been on and off for the past few months. I finally decided to get serious for good when my body mass index scared me. I stayed away from my healthy eating habits last week which was the worse for me. When you put one greasy chip in your mouth you want to eat them every day, and that’s what I exactly did I ate them almost every day and it was horrible. On most days I did go over my calorie count but it wasn’t to the extreme. What really bothered me was how sick I got. I was in a very bad mood almost all the time and I began to get acne that I was horrified by.

This was an awakening for me that I can never go back to those dark days of the past. I can no longer eat those same pound packing foods I use to adore, and sparked me to begin my journey to a healthier course. I now understand it’s not just about calories it’s also about putting nutritious foods in your body, that will keep you at your best and full of life :). I am now up for this challenge and plan on not going back ever again. It has been a long road for me but I think it is for the best, and with the help of my nutrition class and Calorie Count I am well on my way. Portion control seems to be the struggle for me but I am getting better at it. Who doesn’t love seconds or thirds, but I will make the effort to stay away once I am full.

My jeans and slacks are not as tight as they use to be I can actually button them now. This is a huge step for me and I am going to embrace it :). I also love the comments and encouragement that you guys give me you keep me motivated. So please comment away :).
