Travel and Weight Loss

Monday, May 18th, 2009

For years I have been a regular traveller and for years I really struggled with my weight and blood sugar while on the road.  I’m sure it had to do with all the crap I’d eat.  It was always so easy to justify eating garbage because I was travelling.  What a great excuse not to lose weight.  I’m travelling.  What a great excuse to eat garbage.  It never made me feel great in fact it never made me happy.  All that would happen is I’d feel fat and have high blood sugar numbers.

This month I’ve been travelling a lot.  I have made a concerted effort to focus on healthy eating.  Because of this I am actually losing weight, seeing my blood sugar be more controlled and I feel good.  Being away from my family is not high on my priority list, however I learned something when I was out of town for 2 weeks straight.  I have better control without influence from the family.  I can and do make good choices for myself.  I also have less of a desire to cheat.

I haven’t figured out how to ensure that I eat better at home, so for now I think I’ll just live life on the road.
