Why did I bring those little cupcakes home...why?

Didn't I know I'd eat them?

Didn't I know they would call me, even from the depths of the freezer???

Yes I knew, but I didn't want to know. I wanted to believe things were different for me now now. They aren't that different. I have to keep working. AND I NEED TO LEAVE THE JUNK IN THE STORES!

    I made some cupcakes for my daughters birthday and ended up eating some as I had to see how they tasted. I do not bake anymore as I know I do not have good control. I also do not bring baked goods home because I will nibble on them. At least we are aware of our pitfalls. Relax sounds like this is something that rarely happens. Take care and don't be so hard on yourself.

    I totally relate to your post. I hope you see it as baby steps one takes to change for better habits and choices. It's all a learning experience. You sound determined. Best Wishes. :)

The Terrible Stress is Gone

Saturday, February 02, 2013

The terrible stress I felt while I was working toward reaching my goal weight is gone. I still think about my weight and my food (healthy choices and portion size) an awful lot, but I'm being patient, knowing I need time to embrace the new me and my new new way of eating! I've only been in maintenance for 9 weeks, which included a 9 day vacation AND Christmas!!! So really things have gone very well and I'm patiently awaiting peace. I already have gratitude and I await peace...and I firmly believe it WILL come to me when the time is right.

Hump Day

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Today was known as hump day during my working life, now it's known as "oops, the laundry isn't done yet this week" day!

I've been maintaining for 9 weeks now. Hard to believe. I've never maintained for more than a minute before...this time is truly different and I LOVE it.

Yes, it's hard work. But oh oh oh is it ever worth it! I have all these new clothes, they all fit...they keep fitting...I don't have to wonder what will fit when I go to my closet in the morning!

Thank you SparkPeople. Thank you SparkFriends.

I'm still sick with the flu, but today I'm going to exercise again, as I did yesterday. Just a bit...not too much....and I'm going to make some chicken soup.

    I hope you are feeling better. If you have the flu, it is best to stay in bed and drink fluids, and homemade chicken soup, rather than worry about exercise.

    You should just take care of yourself and get some rest. It is more important to get better then worrying about exercising, The chicken soup idea is good. Get better soon and take care.
