Feelings inside

Breakfast
1 cup of cereal (Kashi good friends + Oats and more)
1 banana
2 teaspoons of flax seed
Light Soy Milk

I did walk yesterday, it was REALLY cold, specially cause the wind was blowing all over. I didn't go twice but the experience was great. It's still cold today but I'm ready to get out there and walk again. It's 33 degrees right now, it's not that cold. Even when it gets that cold I want to walk at least 3 times per week.
Snack
1 cup of tea
Lunch
1 cup of black eyed peas w/ flax seed
2 tortillas
5 black seedless grapes
1 cup of apple cider
After two weeks I feel great. While reading French Women don't Get Fat I learned that you should pay attention on how you feel inside. My "starve yourself and lose 8 pounds in 2 weeks" diet didn't work as well because I didn't care how I felt as long as I was losing 1 pound per day. I was miserable and hungry. For the first time I feel I can go on and reach my goal by myself for myself with God's help. Losing weight takes hard work. Losing weight takes planning ahead of time. This week I was really tired but I stayed up late cooking to make sure I don't get out of healthy eating habits. I also don't care whether people notice if I'm losing weight. You can't really know cause it's winter time and I'm just starting but I used to get so much out of people telling me how thin I looked. Now I feel that whether I get compliments or not it doesn't matter. What matters is what Cintia thinks. I'm the only one who knows how much it takes to stay in the changed lifestyle I chose. I feel I can stick with this lifestyle for the rest of my life if I choose.
