This is awesome! That takes a tremendous amount of courage and I am so proud of you! (I'm not sure proud is the exact word I want, but you know what I mean.)

I really have to keep myself busy or distracted when I am like that.

So, determination and will power have won the day lol
That sounds like a terrific day to me! You did it! You stayed on track and strengthened your resistance muscles!!!!

This was the stage when everyone else around the table went quiet. And then they all started laughing. Apparently I was "grumpy and quite mean" during that first week and I almost got unfriended!!! And here was me thinking I was completely under control and on an even keel! Good to know that my wonderful friends stuck by me and were understanding enough to realize that it was just a stage.
That is so funny!!! Thanks for the reminder that I need to be up front with my husband about what may be headed his way during the next week or so.
