aw girl, do NOT rip yourself down with negative observations about yourself! I am sorry to read about your mom and your lovely dog, too. Its easy to reach for the comfort foods in times of sorrow....but you have already done a fabulous job of getting back on track....especially commiting to written words about what you want. And SO awesome for you to be honest and cut out the things that you know we don't need....(processed food).
I am doing good.....when I compare myself from last year to now, I am just so much more healthy. experimenting with clean eating, working out regularly to both crossfit or various home dvds. I guess I do not worry about my weight anymore because I have a lot more muscle, lol. I have the traditional flat asian butt, but now my pants fit tight because of my squats etc, that have given me a lifted, more muscled booty, lol.
I have switched to coconut oil for most cooking, have experimented with a 21 day reset in which I became vegan for that time period, have learned to make my own salad dressings, still drink my shakeology, have cut out lots of processed foods. I keep thinking, if I didn' start last year, I would't be where I am at right now. SO I am glad I started.
And I am glad that you got re-started, too. You are no fat cow!
