This time of year I always get super stressed.
I think my body is just trying to see me through to summer.
But with all this stress, something finally gave.
Surprisingly, I think it was a blessing in disguise.
I've lost about 20 pounds this past year.
And I still wanted to lose more.
I was watching every single calorie that I ate.
I rarely, if ever treated myself to something like dark chocolate.
But with all this extra stress added on, my obsession with numbers has broken.
Don't get me wrong, I still have my moments, but I've started relaxing with my food.
I'm still eating healthily, but I'm not focusing on numbers.
And I don't see sweets as the devil.
I figure, if focusing so hard on being a certain weight is stressing me out so much, why am I trying to lose more weight?
I should be content with the fact that I'm healthy.
I'm not overweight, and I exercise very frequently.
I guess I just got so caught up in the numbers that I lost sight of what being healthy is really about.
