I could have chewed my arm off yesterday I was so hungry. I tried drinking massive amounts of water. I t kind of helped. My daughter and the kids came last night for dinner and I bought cookies for dessert. Peanut butter cookies. I really don't like them, so I thought I was safe. Guess again. Ate 3.
I could relate to Roxie's post this morning. My binge was not an emotional bender, but an availability thing. I knew the kids would have been just as happy with apples, but I bought the dang cookies anyway. So who where the cookies really for?? Yep, me.
Like Roxie I have decided to not beat myself up and move on. I walked this morning with a new/old walking buddy and it was nice. 3 miles. I didn't ride the bike this morning. It's suppose to be really windy this afternoon. I'd rather not make my knee work so hard. I have planned my meals today. I am going to successful TODAY!
I am really having fun with clothes and make up lately. Used to be I didn't care what I looked like and would come to work in sweats and no grooming AT ALL. I am learning what looks good on me and what doesn't. Also I am learning about my hair and make up. Practice makes perfect. Ok not perfect, but I am trying really hard to look my best. I could never be happy with the way I looked when I was so much heavier. Now I can look in the mirror and think, "I look pretty damn good for a women my age". I can take pride in my appearance now. It feels wonderful! Just another benefit of making good choices for me!
Keep the mood and the food real.........take pride in YOU!
