Sunday Skinny: My Own Brand of Zoloft

I lost two pounds today, still going strong on the weight loss, and this time it seems more effortless. Mrs. Pool Shark and I are still going strong on our challenge so I am exercising at least a half hour every single day. Exercising every single day isn’t really effortless but it isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Really to carve out thirty minutes out of my day isn’t going to kill me and I am seeing fantastic results. For instance I have been much happier lately; I think the daily dose of endorphins may just be my own personal brand of Zoloft. I try to exercise as soon as I wake up, and the mood booster I get lasts all day. Even though the scale has only been going down a few pounds a week I am already seeing huge changes in my thighs, butt and waist. Also I don’t feel so helpless, like I am working toward a goal and I feel like I might get there. That empowerment I am sure is working along with the endorphins to make me even happier. And lastly my skin is looking FABULOUS. I don’t know if it’s the sweat cleaning out the pores or the excessive amount of showers I am now taking (two to three a day) or if my skin is just happier with the cleaner food I have been eating. Regardless great skin makes me super happy.

This challenge is one of the best things that has happened to me in a while.

There are a ton of little things that I do to try to keep me focused on eating the right things. Since most of my meals are eaten alone I usually read. My favorite companion at mealtimes are health magazines. The articles and the tips and tricks keep me focused on what my final goal is. I find that I eat slower, I drink more water and I am more conscious about what I eat when I have a health magazine staring back at me.
