WARNING: These next few pictures actually include Lexi living her life & Chicago deep dish pizza with @transforming_noelle while having fun in Chicago. News flash - I dont eat perfect 100% of the time. You shouldn't have too, but I do however eat healthy and workout 80% of the time. I may have pizza (which is my fave) maybe once every few months. I dont hardly post cheat meals (or treat meals) because they are different for everyone, and when I started my journey I didnt want to see my favorite foods everywhere. I don't want to be a trigger for someone, but i'm not afraid to also tell you guys when I cheated. So let's talk abour balance, moderation, living your life, and cheat meals shall we? The first month of my journey I didn't cheat at ALL. The next few months I cheated once a month. Some months i didnt cheat at all, some i cheat once a week. It all depended on my goals & we all have different ones. I lost 224lbs last year because I was so strict and consistent. However despite our goals what's most important is to not feel deprived. If you never have your favorite foods, avoid all social events, avoid going out, or just refuse to be around your favorite foods or people due to temptation - you will fail. You have to find a balance in this journey and enjoy your favorite foods in moderation. In CHICAGO this weekend we had pizza, but I also got 26, 000 steps yesterday. Balance. We also split this with 4 people and had leftovers. Moderation. I have to live my life in between my goals & have fun. I deserve to still enjoy my favorite food and you do too. It gets easier to eat these things and be right back on track even if you have to slowly go into it or start cold Turkey. The most important thing is to be healthy mentally & physically. Eat to live not live to eat.
