Spectrum day 52- breakfast
Beverage: cafe mocha made with espresso, unsweetened cocoa, skim milk and xylitol.
Weigh in: 270 Finally! Another pound lost! So, a total of 42 pounds and 22 since spectrum day 1. One more pound and I will be out of the 270's. Patience and persistence pays off. I am really experiencing something amazing here. I am learning to eat healthfully and slowly seeing the results of my efforts to change the way I eat and move. This means that it is more than a diet; it is a real life change. That is the only way it will be lasting. There is no end date or weight goal that will bring an end to the way I am eating. There is not a day when I will one day go back to eating stuff I like, because I am incorporating these things now. I am weaving in all the foods I enjoy into my daily diet. Chocolate, deserts, ice cream, french fries, and potato chips all have their place in my way of eating now, so they are not temptations. They are not stumbling blocks along the way; they are friends in the journey.
