I had another good day today. Still seem more hungry then usual the past couple of days. Tried really hard to stay on plan. I did pretty good. I must get better with the tracking thing. I think I am going to try the online one that I see on some peoples blogs. I really am computer challenged. Drank alot of water almost 3/4 gallon. I am building up to a gallon a day. I feel good when I am drinking lots of water. I also have noticed that I don't sweat as much either. I have mentioned it before, but bears repeating. I have really bad hot flashes. My hair and neck get soaken wet. It is embrassing and really interfers with my life. I have been back to the bird preserve twice since Sunday. I walked this morning on the treadclimber and then this evening for about an hour art the park. I just ambled around, no hurry. It was nice.
I watched Oprah today and she had on Star Jones. She lost like 165 lbs. I didn't realize it was that much. Lots of things that she said I just let go, but she did say that she had to get that 300 lb woman out of her head. I think I have used my weight to identify myself. I have been the mess in my family forever. Now I am the "chubby" one. I changed other bad habits, but clung to the food addiction for all I was worth. Sometimes after I overeat I feel like I am in active addiction. The endless thoughts about what I want, when I want, how to get it, the shameful feeling after the binge. I continued repeat the same thing over and over...WISHING things would change. Sounds just like a addict to me. Today I made good choices, had great fun at work, I did those things that I would encourage a friend to do. Slow down, do the things that matter, and enjoy them. I think I am going to go upstairs, take a nice hot shower, and watch some mindless sitcom. It feels good to laugh....so go ahead!
