jmhannibal Posted January 3, 2014 Share Posted January 3, 2014 Today is Day 2. I'm committed. I know that I can do this. Several years ago, I changed my diet to an Atkins diet and lost all the weight I carried. I felt great! Fast forward 10 years, 3 children, job changes, busy family, and all the weight is back. This will be a lifestyle change for me. I know how to do it. I am motivated. I. WILL. NOT. QUIT. That said, drinking plain tea sucks. I like my tea in the morning in the winter. It's ok though, I will learn to adapt. I also need to find some ways to change up my eggs in the morning and salad at lunch. I like both foods, but will get bored. I hope to be proactive and have some recipies in place before that happens. This will be a challenge, because while my husband supports me, and at home he will "follow" the plan, he will continue to eat his regular fast food and snacks while at work. He's not ready, which I understand. I've been wanting to do this all year, but just didn't have the right mindset. I read the book over Christmas break, and found my motivation. He'll get there eventually too. The biggest challenge are my picky eaters at home. I know, I know, it's my own fault that they are picky. I'm thinking about seeing a nutritionist for one kiddo who eats about 10 things total. He may have some sensory/texture issues and we need to work through this for his health too! My plan is to start with me, and then through the foods I prepare, teach them how to eat too. Some of the kids will follow easier than others. We'll get there. I'm going to keep telling myself that I can do this. Little by little, each day I'll do this and keep moving forward. I will choose to believe that I will succeed!
