This is now. 6/12/2006
This was then. I got the order mixed up but you get the picture. Thiswas taken the middle of January.
I am really shocked at the differance. When I look in the mirror I don't see that big a difference. Now I understand why people that haven't seen me in while are quick to comment. You can barely see my eyes I am so fat....and forget about my neck.
The reason I put the before and after of my 1st 40 pounds today is because this is weigh in day. I am finding NSVs to get me prepared if the scale doesn't tell me what I want to hear. I am not going to let the scale rule my life. I wasn't perfect this week, though I did eat sensibly....without a binge. That's what is most important to me right now. Not "using" food. I haven't been tracking my food either. It has been working for me, so I have just tried to eat the sme kinds of things this week as last. I lost so much last week, that I will be surprised if I have a lost this week. I like that weekly weigh in and I like Weight Watcher's for the group support....in person group support. I can't get that in blogland.
So, I had wonderful weekend. Had an appointment yesterday with my church leader and had a wonderful visit, and I got a new church job. I am grateful for my church and the family I have there. Then I went to a friend's kid's Bday party. Did very well, ate just little of stuff, and NO CAKE or ICE CREAM. It's like I am someone else. I just looked at and thought, nope not for me. I went and did a little food shopping with the last of my paycheck, and all I bought was good stuff. It is wonderful to do what I know is good for me.
I want to talk about honesty. Honesty is always the best policy. It frees you from a bondage that I can't describe. The more I am honest with myself the easier it is to be me. There is a big long self discovery story that goes along with this. I am saving you the boring details.
Happy, Joyous and Free.......
