Massive Grocery Haul And Update 09/18/11

Hey Luvs so I recently went grocery shopping and wanted to show you all what I am currently eating. I know that is has been awhile since my last Grocery Haul and honestly I love sharing my food finds because they always change. Everything I bought are foods that I enjoy and are healthy and tasty at the same time. I love food and being on this weight loss journey has made me realize I can still enjoy food in healthy moderation and portion sizes. Just because I am trying to loose weight does not mean I have to starve myself and eat fruits and vegetables only. This journey is a lifestyle change and I find that eating what I want without extreme restrictions has helped me loose the amount of weight that I have lost. I have ups and downs but for the most part I have had more ups and I plan to keep it that way. I have alot of weight to loose and I plan to continue to stay on this journey for life because loosing and maintaining weight is very important and go hand in hand. I got on the scale this morning and I am happy to report that I lost the -2 lbs that I gained from last week and I am back at 192 lbs : ) . My next mini goal is to get in the 180's. As you know my first ultimate goal is 160 lbs and it is so amazing how close I am. Loosing - 32 more lbs is all I need to get there and I am so focused. I am excited thinking about how I will look :) I want this so bad and although right now I may not feel that I am at my best psychically I know that I will get there eventually. This journey is a long process and I try not to focus on what I look like as much as I used to because that made me feel down. I am not perfect and at times I do find myself having those thoughts again and it is because there are so many things I would like to do but I feel like my weight is holding me back. On a positive note it is only a matter of time  before I get there and I know I will  get to that happy place where I can look in the mirror and love what I see. Each day I am learning how to love myself and it is a work in progress. That is the main reason why I emphasize "Transitional Vanity". Everything is a process and I came so far. So to anyone out there who feels the same just do not give up an continue to stay positive. Distract yourself from negative thoughts because if you have alot of weight to loose like me dwelling on the negatives will not make you successful on this journey.

Love you all :)

Great foods, great ideas breaking them up to already portioned bags. I need to start doing that and those ice creams must taste great girl!

The last part was what I needed to hear sometimes i catch myself looking in the mirror like wow -40lbs down and I don't see a change in my actual stomach. It gets me down thinking about it but I know its a transition like you said. It's going to take some time to get to that place. I have a lot to lose and I am determined to get there :]

@justdaisy thanks girlie splitting it in portion sizes ahead of time is beneficial for time and for portion control. it helps to stay on track and not over eat.yes I know the feeling I look in the mirror and focus in on my areas of imperfection and that makes me question my weight loss and this process. although it is a long journey we will not see a difference until we get closer to our ultimate goal so it is best we stay positive and try not to get wrapped up in the vanity aspects because it can defeat our state of mind. We will get there in due time and this is a huge transformation for our bodies and we have to realize until then all we can do is distract ourselves and let everything happen when . we can not rush it because out body is the determining factors. don't feel bad we are human and it is all natural feelings to have but we are taking steps to change all of the things we are not happy about :) -40 lbs lost is a great accomplishment we need to realize how hard we have worked.
