It's all been good! I keep almonds, carrots, apples, oranges, grapefruit, yogurt at hand in case I get the hungries. I hold off until 4 or 5 to give in to my hunger as I know it can just spiral out of control like a wild fire!

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I eat better when I plan better. So one day this week I spent in the kitchen time making things for me to eat. I made apple salad, crab cevche, cut up carrots and made chicken salad.

So much.

Keeping the exercise going (not streaks or anything, but just going) despite numerous setbacks. Going pretty well, too.

No fast food runs, no muffin or cupcake runs, no mindless handfuls (and handfuls) of chips or cereal or anything else really, since December. Doing it because that's the way I want to live.

Proud in a way too that I've done it all on my own terms, including a few things SP doesn't entirely approve of (not tracking, for instance; or going cold turkey on some things). Again, I'm choosing how I want to be, and it's working.

Love the idea of this thread...

Okay, I'm eating healthier food in general, most especially vegetables, and I'm exercising like crazy, which feels great!

Finally joining a gym and getting back into my exercise groove! Ever since I started working 10 hour days 5 days a week, my motivation to exercise hasn't been there.

I'm proud of myself for continuing to exercise. That's at least one thing I'm doing right.

I sat down today and planned out all of my meals for next week and wrote them down so that I can compare what I actually eat vs. what I intended to eat.

I am proud for:

Giving up fast food
Becoming capable of eating ONE cookie or ONE half-cup serving of ice cream at a time
Re-embracing the joy of cooking from scratch
Learning to eat breakfast
Gaining the strength to "just say no" to temptations in the workplace lunchroom
Cutting back on the alcohol
Sticking to my calorie range 95 days out of 100
Managing to do this without resorting to yukky "diet foods" or deprivation
Losing 30# as of today :)

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

I wanted to start a thread about what everyone is proud of doing. It's so easy to focus on what's going wrong that we miss seeing what is going RIGHT. Building the good habits is what will help us.

What are you proud of yourself for doing?
