I went on a full rant on my Insta-Story yesterday. You can see it @falenkdwb.
As I get older, I'm sick of effing diets. I hate it. I am like EVERY other person. I've lost weight, and I gain it back. I'm not huge, but I'd like to be smaller. I work out without consistency. I eat out too much. I usually do pretty good on the week days, but I'm a garbage troll on the weekends.
I just don't care anymore. I still want to workout. I still want to eat well during the week, but I'm just fine not being a size 6.
I just thought...I've been doing this since I was in high school. I don't want to still be doing this when I'm 60! I don't. I don't want to change my lifestyle either. I don't. I like my life. I have great friends and family, and that should make me happy. I am not unhealthy...but I could be healthier. SO I have decided I don't want to lose 20 or 30 or 10 or whatever lbs. I want to be happy. I want to eat healthy more than I eat like crap because I do feel better when I do. (FYI-I'm still pretty happy when I have a cheeseburger and pizza on weekends)...
I am also wondering how long this thought process will last? I'm like a roller coaster, so I'll probably try to lose 10lbs before my wedding or something! ha!
Side note: please don't send me the plan that worked for you. I did that rant yesterday, and people tried to get me on a conference call to discuss their products. I'm not asking for help. I feel like I was pretty clear in the post. If you found something that works for you, awesome! I'm genuinely happy for you:)
I did read this story where a woman shared what she would eat in a day to lose 35lbs after her 3rd child. I realize you may be working toward weight loss. Maybe this will help. I always enjoy seeing what other people eat for some reason. Click here for the full story!
