The peer pressure must be totaly maddening!
I had an open house here on Friday night with all sorts of goodies. I decided late last week that I was not going to indulge in the brownies, chips, etc. Then I worried that I would end up doing it anyway, and suddenly I had this weird insight that I can trust myself to do the right thing for my body. I caught myself reaching for the chips a couple of times out of pure habit and stopped myself. I would rather look slim and look great in clothes then eat that stuff. I quit eating red meat in 1982, so it seems like I can quit the white flour, chips and candy if I can do that.
I was inspired by sugarfreesheila.com, this girl who has an Atkins-based web site about her own story and in the interest of supporting others. Great site! Reminds me of the character on Legally Blonde, very into fashion but also whip-smart (fortunately sans tiny purse dogs in coordinated ensembles.) It's enjoyable to check out and very inspiring.
I am at 705, with 295 to go. It will be a challenge to make it to our 1000 but I'll keep plugging at it!
Better to aim at the stars and hit the fencepost, than aim at the fencepost and hit the ground. However, it is SUPREMELY better to aim at the stars and hit a STAR!
