On the healthy eating front, I did have a mini-break down. Had a small bag of cookies and some chocolate covered raisins, but not too bad.
I've pretty much swapped out cola (that I use for mixing most often), and subbed in a much healthier drink, though I'm not using it for mixer: water, lemon or lime juice, stevia for sweetener. It's actually really, really good.
The lemon/lime juice is just that bottled stuff off the shelf, and isn't nearly as nice as fresh lemon/lime, but it's easy, convenient, and I can simply keep the bottle on my desk along with the bottle of stevia (liquid) and a pitcher of water. That makes it easier to avoid going to the kitchen, chopping a lemon, juicing it, cleaning up, etc. Much faster this way.
Liquid stevia is nice. You only need a few drops. It's really simple to just have those 2 bottles and a pitcher of water on my desk.
I'm down about 40lbs and in the best shape I've been in... a long time. I've definitely been in the "a little bit every once in a while" camp, life isn't worth it without the little pleasures.
Wow! That's fantastic!
I managed to lose a lot of weight a few years back, but gained it all back. I'm not "fat", but could still lose a bit. I've adjusted my diet again, so I'm expecting to lose some more now.
One of the ways I lost weight before was to consume a lot of limes. Worked like a charm. I wasn't even trying to lose the weight. I just cut out sugar 100%, ate purely food I could cut with a knife and eat raw, and drank water with lots, and lots of lime.
