Last night at work, as I am walking back from the bathroom, I happen to notice the vending machines. Not hard to do since there are about ten of them in a row. The thing is that two weeks ago, I would have stood in front of them, after having to dig through my purse to find enough change, and picked something out.
For the first time, since I started over in my attempts, I glanced over and realized that I had control over whether I grabbed something or not. I walked past it with only that glance. I felt so proud of myself!!!!
I know there will be a time when I do grab something but I also know that the next time it will be a healthier choice. I have lost 8 pounds in the last two weeks and I can already feel the difference. I no longer feel like my skin is being pushed out or my chin(s) is growing every second. No one else may notice for another 20 pounds, but I certainly do.
