I’m really proud of myself. Sure, it’s not a big sacrifice and many people carry out very normal lives without it, but for me it was huge. Curbing cravings, surviving sugar pains, asking for water, OJ or Lemonade, no longer enjoying the bliss of a frozen coke on a hot day. For example, in a questionnaire I was asked what my favourite beverage was, “coke in a frosted glass with ice” was my answer. Giving up was a big deal.
I’m glad I did because it did change my life (to some degree). I realised it was within my will power, not only to quit but to say no (or limit) other toxins in my life. I lost weight. Sure, going out on the town with out my favourite drink “Jim Beam & Coke” was tough at first, but I adapted, tried new things. I drink 20 times more water now than I ever did and I get so many compliments on my skin now.
Since coming off Reductil, things have been harder. The crutch I had to lean on is gone and my will power is coming more and more into play. Steve says I’ve hit a slump. That’s not good. So amongst the many different things I’m doing at the moment, I’m again, trying to add more exercise to my routine. Starting by using Wii Fit on a daily basis.This a random pic of my newest dress. It’s jersey knit and the most perfect cut for my body. I wasn’t sure about the pattern but I think I pull it off ok. I haven’t got any gold accessories to go with it so I think a trip to diva or Equip is in order soon.
Also I realise a lot of my posts have been business orientated lately, but that’s just how my brains working at the moment. More real life stuff coming soon… when I get a chance to have one. oxox.
