I know the first time I was truly successful in my weight loss journey was when I journaled to how I was feeling/thinking and I found how sad I really was. On the outside happy life, busy, running around after kids/husband, chasing a career but then when I actually stripped away the glossy outside I saw that I saw ME in a very negative light. I don't know how that happened but when I didn't value ME then I didn't take care of ME either. I do suggest having a journal, a private place to right down thoughts and feelings and see how you can improve your self image.

Today is day 1 of VLCD and I know this is the mental aspect of the game. I brought a bigger water container to work to make sure I am drinking enough because I work on an amazing property developemnt (The Pearl) in San Antonio and it has 15+ restaurants on campus plus we have fruit/nuts/snacks in our kitchen that I need to stay away from. It is an awesome place to be but can make that diet part hard. I weighed in at home but can't remember the weight but I was up a couple pounds from yesterday which makes sense since I ended up with two burger meals lol.

I do have a planned interruption for Aug 16-19 as we are headed to the coast to hang out of the beach for the last getaway before school starts. I am hoping to be down 10ish pounds by then so I can feel better getting some sun and not be so self conscious about my body.
