When you start off eating healthy you question what all you can eat. The answer is everything but in moderation. I started a couple weeks ago eating only at home and cutting out most sweet drinks and fast food. I didn’t think this was possible until it was.
Eating healthier is the key to having a healthy body and a healthy mind. When you eat right, you don’t worry about your weight or how you look in clothes. When I started eating better I waited until about a week to get on the scale. It didn’t move. My mom told me that eating healthier is good and all but the scale may not move as much until later. I was disappointed because I knew something about my body had changed. I was able to fit clothes that I was struggling to get in to.
I had been struggling with my weight for a few months and the worst part is I was exercising. The problem was I was using exercise as an excuse to eat whatever I wanted. Lesson learned you can’t eat what you want because you are supposedly burning it off.
I decided to stop exercising as much. I still continue to walk, but everything else is cut out. I I know you are supposed to exercise, but make sure you are doing it right and not wrong like me. I was getting muscular, but you couldn’t tell because I had a layer of fat over my abs.
I wanted to start eating right and then start exercising again so I wouldn’t make the same mistakes. There is nothing worse than hard work and nothing to show for it. So far I feel I have been making progress with just the walking. I have also limited my snacks and how many calories I have in a day. But overall everything has been going well.
