Default Proud while in NYC

So my husband had a job interview yesterday in the heart of the "Big Apple" . I went with him for moral support and a day in NYC is always fun too. While he interviewed - I began to wander around some of my very favorite areas and realized what a food trigger place Manhatten is for me. My g-d, I have favorite food stops all over that town. You know, stuff that's the best, or you can only get it there. But you know what?!?! I had a lovely salad for lunch, about 5 points, and a latte with skim milk and that was that. I thought alot about all of you and your stories of success and strength. I realized I'm not alone, it's work and if I keep doing what I'm doing, in a year from now I WILL LOOK, but more importantly FEEL different. I'm proud of me! I realized I don't have to keep wishing for a healthy, thin body - I can contribe to that becoming my reality. I think I also realized that I have been telling myself some really negative messages like "you're just meant to be fat" and "you'll never be thin". I would never say such a thing to anyone else. I AM meant to be healthy and fit!!!

Wow, that's great! You definitely have reasons to be proud of yourself, both for sticking to your plan when you had all that tempting food around, and for all that positive thinking! Keep up the great work!

Good for you! You are so right about the mindset. It's not easy, it is hard work to change your lifestyle, but it is totally worth it. Good luck to your DH!

Congratulations on making a smart decision. It can be really hard when faced with a favorite food or something that's not always available. Keep it up!
