I got to thinking about how much the way I eat has morphed and changed over the years. Believe me, I didn’t just wake up one day with good eating habits. It was a process of metamorphoses and it continues to this day. So I thought it would be fun to see how things have changed, in pictures.
The first picture is an estimate of what a day of food looked like for me before I started changing my habits. Some days may have been better and some worse, but this is probably pretty typical of my old way of eating:
The second picture is an actual day from the first month I started counting calories. It represents 1700 calories of food (estimated, because I wasn’t measuring anything then and who knows how many calories are really in a Gyro and fried zucchini!) Starbucks iced coffee stayed. I kept the cream and ditched the sugar.
And finally, this image is representative of the way I eat now. Yes, the Starbucks is STILL here! Now it has no sugar and almond milk instead of cream. Hey, nobody’s perfect!
Keep changing, keep learning, keep evolving, keep growing! There’s always room for improvement. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure if you’re eating all the right things at first. It’s Okay! I lost quite a bit of weight eating the way that’s represented in the second picture. You don’t have to be perfect to succeed.
