HI guys !!!!
I DID IT !!!! I DID IT !!!!
My goal today was to not eat any bread and to drink nothing but water. I DID IT !!!
In fact... I did even better than that.
I ate a salad and baked chicken breast for lunch. I can't remember how long it has been since I ate a salad at home.
Heck... I can't remember the last time I ate a salad at all.
I drank nothing but water... and believe me... I WANTED A DIET COKE !!!!
I made a promise to my daughter that if she drank nothing but water today so would I. We BOTH did it !!!
About 5pm I was going to call her and say "GO AHEAD AND DRINK A Dr Pepper" LOL I REALLY wanted some pop.... but I drank another bottle of water instead.
My dinner was bread free too. Only veggie I ate was a sliced tomato but better than none. PROGRESS !!!!!
I made great progress today!!!
PLUS... I exercised for an entire hour today too.
I miss not being able to swim first thing in the morning... but I am proud of myself for doing it in the middle of my day. It is not convienent to do it midday... but Iam willing to do what it takes.
Did any of you see Oprahs rerun on diet success stories.??
They all WORKED HARD
to lose their weight. Much harder than I have done or doing. I am going to commit to working hard for my success too. It is a fact of life... it isn't going to happened on its own... I have to work for it!!!!
Now on to replys....
SYN !!!!! Welcome HOME.!!! It is soooo good to see you again!!!
I am so happy for you. FINALLY getting the past put behind you and moving forward with your future. You sound so much more at peace.
I sent you an email yesterday but I got it sent back to me. If you would , send me your new email adress.
Thin... I worry you are working TOO HARD. Please pace yourself slower next time you get new jobs. I know you are capable of doing it ALL ... but it may not be best for you overall.
Homebound... Happy Anniversary !!! Sounds like you had a wonderful dinner in honor of your marriage. Now that you have that "special occasion" over with.... you can get serious again about your weight loss journey. Your health is worth it!!!!
Barb... congrats on walking that treadmill when you got home.
Commitment like that is what will make you successful in the long run.
Mary... I sure miss your longer posts. It might help you get back on track with your food. Work on PROGRESS not perfection. What can you do for progress ???
Natalie... I too have tried eatting the kitchen cabinets .... great for fiber but lacking in flavor. LOL
I am soooo sorry to hear you are getting frustrated. We have all been there... BUT !!!!! you can't afford to stay there.
Attitude is 99% of the battle. Our "minds" causes us to eat more than hunger or food. Get out some pencil and paper and start writing a gratitude list. One for each letter of the alphabet.
A= attitude.. positive attitude
B= Barbs fine example of "just do it"
I know how hard it can be... the harder it is to do it... the MORE you need to do it. But the bottom line is... YOU CAN DO IT !!!
oh yes... I LOVED your Desiderata
Kat... I am not ready for summer to be over either. I am ready for the 100+ degrees to be over... but NOT SUMMER. This is the first year EVER I did not want summer to end. I think the pool has a lot to do with that.
I swam for over an hour today. It felt good. Cold to start... but warmed up quickly.
Tina... thanks for the update on Connie. Now that you wrote it out... I remember NOW. Getting OLD SUCKS!!!
I hate losing my memory.
At least I know I have lost it... it is going to be bad when I don't know that I have forgotten. LOL
That was mighty sneaky of you with that donut story. I could just see you throwing those donuts everywhere.
Connie... here is a toast to you...
To a quick recovery... Bottoms up!!!
( sorry... I could not resist
Okay... I have probably put a lot of you to sleep by now. LOL
It is time for me to call it a night.
