Good morning! Yes, it's me. Taking a positive approach to life at the moment. I weighed in last night and was happy with a 2.5 lbs loss. I was so afraid that I was going to have another gain. I was really doubting myself last week. I think some of my problems last week were triggered by the 3 lb gain. I didn't feel confident in myself. I was second guessing my choices all week. I was afraid that I had left intuative eating behind and was now going to have to really work at the food part. Counting something! Heaven forbid! I told myself that if I had another gain this week it was back to counting (and obsessing over) points\calories. It has just been much easier this time not doing all of that. It makes it really seem like a lifestyle.
I loved BitchCake's post I read today. Never give up. Tough times DO NOT last forever. It's ok to whine and bitch and moan....just DO NOT GIVE UP! Oh, and maybe try to learn something from the tough times. Cause just like the bad times, the good times won't last forever either. Maybe you will be able to handle it better the next time. Her entire post is worth a read.
I am very excited for my son. He is 4 days into no smoking! I gave up along time ago telling him, no nagging him, about it. He has started his "food program" and has been working out with a buddy. I bought a ton of fruits and veggies to get him started this week. I would love to see him lose some weight. He is a BIG guy, with a BIG heart. He would love to date, but I think his weight holds him back. He's 20 years old and should be out having a great time! He has been depressed this summer, and he could really use a boost. He deserves to treat himself well.
Put in 2 more bids on a couple of houses I looked at yesterday. I may be a home owner yet. Act as if...right??
Keep the mood and the food real.
