HYC - check in

This has been a great week! I began the Couch 2 5K program and am very excited to become a jogger again. I stayed within my points all week and blogged my menu each day. I feel like this summer is going to be a big turning point for me; a new province, a new city, a new job, new friends, and a new body. People are beginning to notice the change in me, both physically and emotionally. I have so much more energy and my mood is positive. it is amazing how much eating healthy can affect your mental health! In the past 3.5 months I have learned that I am not defined by food, I now eat when I am hungry and stop when I am full, I can't remember the last time I stuffed myself until it hurt (used to be a regular occurance). I have such a long way to go but with my ne found knowledge and outlook it is a matter of WHEN I get to goal not IF!!

I love that positive attitude you got going on.
I am feeling so much better too. And I am so proud of myself too... good food changes and empowered from me the inside out.
Keep it up!
And welcome to BC, I am sure you will love it here.
After all "It's the best place on earth"

I'm so happy for you! You go girl!

It's so true about the mindless eating. I don't think I even enjoyed my food as much then either! (too busy cramming it in)
