I had the urge to eat something the other night, I had calories to spare,but did not want to go over. I opened the refrigerator & STARED at the fully loaded shelves. MMM !! What would it be, you see before I would NOT have thought about it I would have grabbed & devoured. This time I thought about my choices, so I choose 1 slice of low fat cheeses & I took 6 lettuce leafs from the garden & wrapped the cheese in it just like an egg roll. I had that with 16 ounces of ice cold water. I was completely satisfied. After I was done eating I examined what I did, number one I thought before I reacted, I did not just hurriedly act on impulse to eat anything. second I acted on my choice, third I felt emotionally good what I did. Another example I love cinnamon graham crackers slathered with Nutella, & a large glass of milk. The choice I changed on this treat I took half a cracker with 1/2 tablespoon Nutella spread it on & put the other half of cracker on top, no milk but ice cold water. I was completely satisfied. The key for me that I must continue to do, is STOP at that very moment when the food urges come & examine the whole outcome. Do nothing on IMPULSE, that gets me in trouble every time. Before I go to sleep I always reexamine my whole day trying to see where I could have done better. This time I went to sleep with a smile because you see I did not dismiss my choices , I felt emotionally good. Every day I am going to think of what I will eat & try to modify the foods , but still have a taste.

Waking with a jolt of energy I shot up out of bed like a rocket, Gosh I thought to myself what has gotten into you ? Then as I briskly walked to the bathroom & stood there looking full view of my body I knew why. After taking a long look at my body ( Read previous blog ) I quickly got dressed, but then I said wait a minute you are not going to change your mind think why you are doing this. ( that is what I would do in the past hurry & get dressed because I would be talking my self right out of it ). I started out with my walk , I could hear & see the birds singing their morning songs, I said," oh little birdie are you greeting me on this fine summer morning??? I saw a huge Crane at the rivers edge walking so stately & then bending down (as if taking a curtsy to a Queen) getting a drink of cool water. I smelled the Queens Anne flowers as I walked on by, they smell like carrots brought back memories when I was a child making mud cakes with them trying to feed my brothers. I had to chuckle a little bit , Then I saw a Weeping Willow tree with all it's branches touching the ground as if it has the weight of the world on it's branches, the sun was shining through the leaves , I thought yes there is light at the end of everything , The purple & yellow flowers were sprinkled throughout the fields. I came upon a swirl of tiny birds all flying just above my head I thought they are flapping their little wings so vigorously, I said," oh little birdie I am almost done with my walk" I pretended they were using their wings clapping for me because I made my morning walk that I had not done so in a long long time.

Yesterday as I stood before the long mirror with my back towards it I peeled off my clothes I then held a hand mirror I had to see my back side I stood there & examined my backside, before I would quickly glance away as if I was turning the pages of a boring book,& skipping to the next page. I saw each fold & roll, I touched it & felt the doughy folds of fat. I slowly turned to the front I thought gee it looks better in the front, then I slowly turned to the side. I was a gasp . There it was my stomach protruded out like beach ball , my sides, had rolls of fat like a cascading waterfall, my breast hung like a Baltimore Oriole nest, My jaw line drooped like a turkey gobbler. I stood for a long time turning & touching examining getting the feel of what it felt like in flesh & in thoughts . You did this to yourself, now you will put yourself back together. I know I am older & we lose our elasticity in our body, but I know I can get rid of the excess fat. I want my back side to be curvy with the sides curved in giving me a waist,I want the beach ball stomach to deflate, I want the jaw & neck line to be pulled in with my chin protruding out just a tad. I want my breast to be like a Robins nest round not droopy. Every day before dressing I am going to examine my nakedness. I am not going to quickly glance away I am coming face to face with it. I really belief by seeing this it will slowly put the thougt in my mind every time the late night eating or over indulging

When the evening is drawing in & I lay back on my favorite porch recliner, I hear the flowing of the water fall from the fountain underneath my window pane & I watch the Robins & the Jenny Wrens flutter back & forth & call to one another like they are saying " this is my spot for the night !! " I make promises to my self in the twilight of the evening that tomorrow when the fog is still lying low like a blanket covering my town , that I will go out for a long walk underneath the morning fog & have the dew kiss my face with each step. I know it does I walked it before in time past, I know how exuberant I felt when I arrived back home, I miss this, but what is stopping me from going under the umbrella of morning fog & kisses of the dew? I think at times if I shall start it will be a life time to continue, I am afraid I cannot continue every day so therefore I roost but never take flight as the Robins or the Jenny Wrens.

My brother introduced me to this awesome store called Finders Keepers & it is a keeper!!!!
I bought so many clothes the two times I have been there. The clothes I bought are name brand all the original price tags on the clothes. The highest I paid $ 24.00 & the lowest I paid was $ 6.99. Land End work out shoes was the highest, the names I bought in tops & slacks are Calvin Klein,Lands End, Jones New York Signature, The Quacker Factory,Rafaella, I will not spend top dollar when I am working to get down in size. so this is a great place to shop. The shop keeper does have slightly worn clothes , besides all the knew ones, but she is very particular what she takes into her shop. The great thing about this it is 30 minutes from my home!!!!
