Well, it's been a different sort of day here. Back to work after more than 2 weeks off for vacation. Had to do a route, which I did slowly so I didn't mess up my knee again. Waiting for Ed to get home because we're supposed to help buy the dry wall and beams we need to start working on the bathroom, after a week of it being torn apart. (Don't even get me started about having the pee in the woods behind the house!) And just found out from older son that younger son broke up with his girlfriend. I thought they were doing so well...

So I'm having my own versio of a coffee coolatta: coffee, half a serving of Carnation Breakfast mix, a squirt of chocolate syrup, and ice cubes. (Thanks for letting me use your blender while you're at work, Nick!) No, it's not the same as Oreos or a candy bar, but I'm wise enough to know that once I start down that Path of Sugar, I won't stop. So this will do.

8/5

Everything I've learned the past year? It can all be put down to a few words: I'm stronger than I think I am. And I can almost always push myself a little bit more.

I've had a tough year... my mom died, my cat died, I've gotten older, my younger son quit college, my older son got engaged, I've hurt my knee countless times, we've had endless insurance issues, and on and on. But I haven't thrown in the towel, haven't given up on SP, haven't give up on myself. One of the reasons is that I know once I stop, I will go back to the way things were; mindless eating, less exercise, no accountability to anyone.

So I have learned that I'm not perfect, but I can get over my mistakes. I'm not as strong as I once was, but I can continue to work on getting stronger than I am. I tend to need to learn the same lessons over and over, but at least I'm still learning. And I will endure.

As the saying goes: never give up, never surrender.

    You may not be physically stronger but knowing and believing that you are stronger than you think gives great inner strength.

Hello...

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Hello, my name is Rebecca and I am a sugar addict...

Went to have my nails done at my friend's house and she offered cookies and zucchini bread, one of my faves. Our roomie brought home little pies and cookies from work. There is chocolate left over from the long trip to Maine. Ice cream in the fridge...

But today I was strong; today I found things to do when I started to think of sugar; today was better than yesterday. And in reality, that is all I can ask for.

    Go Rebecca - I am a sugar addict as well. The more you don't eat, the less you crave. Stay strong girl and keep up the good work!

My best experiences this round can be put into 2 words: determination and friendship.

First off, even with all the distractions (health issues, insurance problems, new roomies, job frustrations, etc) I was determined to stick with the program, and I did. I did not lose as much weight as I would have liked, but I didn't throw in the towel, either.

Second, the support of the friends I have made in this round, and previous BLC rounds, have proved immeasurable. Without the cheering and the gentle corrections, I wouldn't have made it this far. Just know that my teammates are looking forward to hearing from me every day helps keep me on track.

7/7

Day one: no sugar...

Day two: good girl emoticon

Day three: can I admit I'm only doing this so I can post a positive blog every day?

Day four: ice cream but I kept it under control, and added a banana for luck... emoticon
