My compliance really dropped off a month or two before the baby was born, when I couldn't cook or exercise. That was followed by stress and more noncompliance and some stress eating. I can't believe some of the things I was eating, avoids are a slippery slope for sure! This time I'm not just promising to get more compliant, I've done it, I'm on the bandwagon travelling too fast to jump off without injury
Since last Wednesday, I'm eating mostly beneficials. My snacks are all beneficial/neutral veggies, beneficial fruit, or whatever beneficial/neutral protein I may have on hand. My meals are almost entirely beneficial, with lots of greens and beef. This time, cold turkey was the only way to go. I needed an instant re-alignment of my diet and appetite, among other parts of me. I am now a monk when it comes to food. Food's only and most important purpose for me now is to make me feel good, whole, and healthy. No other purpose for food matters anymore. I don't stress eat, because I don't feel sorry for myself, I feel powerful and calm. (See my prayer blog ;-)
I've also been exercising, pushing the stroller up and down hills, every night as the sun gets ready to set. It's fun and a good workout!
