You'll never guess...

Yep. I've been doing well! Really well.

Last time I weighed, I was down over 10 lbs. I am getting close to getting out of the 300's again, and I am almost confident I will be there sooner than later.

I haven't blogged in a while because I have been so busy with back-to-school. I went back to work on 7/18 and students came back on 8/1. It's the 3rd week of school and I can feel a good routine settling in finally. My baby girl started Kindergarten today, so now all of my kids are back to school, too.

I am still eating as organic as possible for my budget. I have not had McDonald's in about a month. The only fast food I have indulged in is pizza and Subway. And both of those have been limited.

I think the biggest change is that I am eating much less. I haven't binged in quite a while either (since before my last blog post on 7/20). I am feeling very in control of my eating. I eat when I am hungry, and try to choose protein instead of bad carbs. I have not eat school lunch at all since school started, and I pack my lunch every day. I can tell a huge difference in how I feel. My heartburn has disappeared again (shocker). I just feel better. I know it has a lot to do with the better food, but I MENTALLY feel better because I know I am in control.

I just recently got on the scale because I was curious, but I vow not to let those numbers mess with me anymore. I am focused on good habits and good food right now. Not numbers. As I am slowly proving, if I keep taking these baby steps to being healthy, the weight loss will follow. I am not running a race. I am on a journey.
