I opened my lunch bag for a mid morning snack. (Yes, to me it is mid morning.)
I saw a round brown thing that looked remarkably like a cookie. The thought passed through my head, "Is that a cookie?" (I'd like to add that I packed my own lunch bag) --- and then I realized that no, it was the other half of my sandwich thin, that I did not eat with breakfast.
HA HA HA
It was like of those little hallucinatory mirages from the desert.
It's always good to start the day off with a laugh, even if you are just laughing at yourself.

I have stuck to my eating plan for 3 days. I am patting myself on the back because it has not been easy. I am doing it, though. I would often eat good foods, just way too much of it. So now, I am doing BFC. I have lost 5 lbs from my last weigh in. WHOA! I am stoked right now. Downward movement on the scale? SWEETNESS!!!! My next goal is the next zero down.
I came home from work and DH had made a pasta dish. I had one small serving, and I was satisfied. I checked all of the food labels to know exactly what to count, and eating it was within my guidelines. I ENJOYED EVERY BITE! I did not race through it. I savored the spiciness.
I just feeling like singing, "Doo Dah, Doo Dah...Oh Doo Dah Day..." It's been so long since I had a loss (read it's been so long since i put forth an effort)...it just feels good to be on the losing end, especially after a stressful week at work.
SUPER COOL. It gives me huge momentum to keep going now that I know it is all working. WOO HOO!!!!!! GO ME!

On a scale (no pun intended) of 1 to 10, how hungry am I? Right now, not hungry at all. I am on the low end. I ate breakfast 3 hours ago and the hungries have not yet kicked in. Yesterday, though, I was very hungry and it was a fight to keep myself from heading to cheater-town. Yup, I felt like chewing my right arm off.
I did go get some food in accordance with the "Belly Fat Cure" program I have started. So, I did stay within my guidelines. I was wicked proud of myself. I had a Lean Cuisine when I went home and I was ok. I was actually "HAPPY" to be able to "ENJOY" a Lean Cuisine.
For too long, I left myself pretty much eat whatever I wanted without being concerned with the consequences. Despite the times I have tried to eat "better," I would eat what I want and had limited success. The program I am doing now makes sense to me, but it has been a bit hard adjusting to it. It limits carbs and sugars. For the first time in a while, I am looking forward to weighing in and measuring my waist this wknd. Ha!
The day is going to ramp up to busy in a bit, and I'm hopeful that the day's distractions will keep me from dwelling on food.
Have a great day, everyone!!! WOO HOO!

New road work today made me scramble in a bit earlier to work. On my way in, I heard a song that makes me want to groove: "Let's Get it Started" by the Black Eyed Peas! Now, there's a prophetic moment if I ever had one. It is time to start doing, and never mind the how should I do it, just start doing!
I came into my office, settled down, and then shut the lights off (one side is visible from the hallway) and then I put this song on (love youtube) and got up and danced around. Yup. My movement has got to start somewhere and this is it. Drawing the line in the sand. Must move every day. I can do this, and this is my jumping off point!!!
Let's have a fantastic day!!! It is doable for all of us. One step (or song) at a time!!!! See you on the dance floor!

If you're happy and you know it, and you really want to show it...if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands! (Ok, I know a few may be cursing me today if this song lingers in your head for a while.) Mine too. I am happy!
I am feeling very comfortable in my own skin. Not because I lost a ton of weight. (I haven't...yet) Just because. I am looking around and seeing the many, many blessings before me and appreciating all the richness my life has. I am surrounded by wonderful students, many of whom I have had the pleasure of helping (and employing) the last 3-4 years, and now, they are getting ready to graduate and move on to the next phase of their lives --- some will find work, many more will go on to even more education - law school, med school, etc...and I know that I had a tiny little hand in helping to shape who they are, and I am very proud of the little part I shared. Very proud!
I see myself becoming more organized, and completing projects I started, not just leaving them incomplete. I am writing again, making jewelry, reading (love that David Sedaris!) and loving life.
I have woken up from my self induced depression and I am on the road to living whole again. It feels good to be me. I am back. :)
