I am feeling very bright and cheerful today, which is surprising since it is the second day of me going back to work.
I think I am feeling happy because my body is happy with me. I have been watching what I have been eating and I feel so much better. My skin is clearing up, I haven't been so tired, and I actually look forward to eating. Before I was eating because that is just what you do and to hide feelings I didn't want to feel. Now I look at my food as a possibility. Every day is a day to make the choice to do good things for my body. It isn't the scale that makes the choices, it is me. I determine what that scale says.
So far I am down a half pound, but I can't count on anything until Sunday morning. Let's hope I can make it through Saturday without blowing it. I actually will be going to a class on Saturday for my Masters, so I think I will be okay since I'll be in a classroom setting all day.
My goal is 2 ponds this week. Can't wait till Sunday!!
Confession: I have been drinking waaaayyy too many diet sodas. Need more water!!
Cheer: I have been taking leftovers for lunch so I don't have to eat in the yucky snack bar at school. I feel better after eating a good lunch instead of a greasy one!!
