Fifty pounds later. When I look at my pictures from the day I started Bright Line Eating, I have the strangest sensation. It's like I've already forgotten that's how my life used to be. The photos are shocking to me. .
Last night a guy I know who does BLE asked me if I ever take a day off or have a cheat meal. My answer was an immediate, "No!" Straight talk here: I do not TRUST MYSELF to start again. Starting the first time was hard enough. (Let's just go with awful to sum that all up.) I do not want to go through that again and I don't want to go down the on again/off again road. I can't be trusted with that. .
Another recent experience: Last week I ran into a dear friend in the supermarket. She rocked BLE consistently for 3 months, then set it aside for a big vacation. The first thing she said was, "Sanz, don't stop. Whatever you do, don't stop. I have been trying for months to get back and I can't seem to do it. I don't know what happened. I did so well for almost 90 days straight and I can't seem to do it again. The same thing happened to my mom." .
Her advice has been swimming around my mind since then. "Don't stop," I tell myself. "You've got a great thing going, don't mess it up," I say. "It's not worth it," I remember. .
I don't always feel free from food, but I CAN say that most of the time I don't care much about sugar and flour--even when it's staring me in the face. Soda, on the other hand, I still think about. I still want it. Which is entirely bizarre because I NEVER drank soda until 3 months before I started BLE. .
Having a soda or a brownie or a cookie is in NO WAY worth it to me. I am not willing to pay that price for a few SECONDS of taste. Taste is fleeting. How I feel mentally and physically lingers long after the taste has dissolved. .
Day 171 Fajita Bowl Dinner: 8 oz spiced cauliflower rice sauteed w/ some leftover broc/caul slaw & chopped jalapeno & onion; 5 oz broiled spiced bell pepper, onion & fire roasted diced tomato; 1 oz corn; 3 oz broiled thin sirloin tip steak slices; 1.5 oz black beans; 1 oz cheddar; 2 oz salsa. I *really* was not in the mood to cook and was running behind, having come in from the infernal mowing at like 5 pm to a voicemail from husband that he would be home by 5:30. But I stuck to my planned meal and it turned out great. Husband waited patiently and then commented "this is really good" twice while eating. Kids didn't complain about their rushed to table grub either. Now for clean-up and some meal prep for tomorrow. #BLE#brightlineeating#nosugar#noflour
