rainy day doesn't get me down

So I over estimated my ability to jump right into lots of walking with 10,000 steps a day. Sad I know but I didn't give up like I would have in the past and re-set my goal to at least 7,000 steps a day and I have made that everyday since =D 

I went grocery shopping with my roommate Amanda and it was a real eye opener to see the aisles I used to go down without hesitation and to see what was being thrown in my cart and would eventually be put into my body. I have no desire for these things anymore because this journey has already taken me to amazing places. It's also crazy to me but I caught myself checking nutrition labels for everything and comparing products so I could get the most protein for the least amount of calories and fat. Craziness!!!!!! Yesterday Amanda wanted McDonald's and she was very concerned about me lol. I was like I have no problem with you eating Micky D's in the car with me because that food has no appeal to me anymore. Yes it smelt delicious but with how far I've come already and with my story just starting is flabbergasting to me. I have accomplished so much since February that it makes my heart smile.

Today I stepped on the scale and it said 346.0
I couldn't stop smiling because that is 3 lbs away from losing 50 lbs already!!!!!! Holy schnanagins!!!

I have started eating mushies even though I supposed to wait until Friday. Just small things like cottage cheese and hummus....mmmmmm love me some hummus <3 I am cooking some acorn squash tonight and I am very excited for it =) You know it's fall when you see pumpkins and squash everywhere =D

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
