Clean Eating

I have struggled with my weight for my entire life.
I am a carb-aholic and could sit down and eat a loaf of white bread in one sitting, I think.
I have always enjoyed working out for the positive way it makes me feel.
And in my younger years, working out kept my weight gain at a minimum most of the times.

I also have a sugar problem, which I like to pretend doesn't exist at most times.
I have filled up on carbs and chocolate and bad food for me.

So, I talked to my sister-in-law, who lost quite a bit of weight, even though she was not overweight to begin with.
I could see in her how great she was feeling. I wanted to feel that way.

So, I have started eating "clean."
I am eating mostly non-processed foods, straight from nature.
I am a work in progress so I will certainly be doing an even better job as time goes on.

I feel amazing!! I no longer feel sluggish and hungry.
I eat every 3 hours and that has completely regulated my blood sugar.
Now, I have only been doing this for 9 days. I have lost 6 pounds as of this morning.
The way my clothes fit tell me I have lost even more inches.

I eat fruits and veggies and lean chicken and turkey. I will add fish in there this week.
I eat brown rice. I have 2 snacks. I drink lots of water.

I will be honest and say, I have had a soda once during this time.
I am going to hit the health food store in the next couple of days to see what other drinks I can have. Sometimes water needs a little kick.

So, I am super excited about this new way of eating. I will certainly be moving the kids more into this direction, though I doubt I will be able to switch them entirely.

For now, I am going to enjoy feeling so good!
