ALS broke me down. . .
Friday, July 03, 2009
I had a gin on the rocks last night after the news, and some nuts, too.
How often have we said "If I eat when I'm hungry, I'd never eat!" Most people who need to lose weight don't know real hunger pains, we're more "emotional" eaters, and I'm no exception.
Last night's CBS evening news featured a segment on ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). They've finally been able to isolate the cause, and are working on a cure. That made me cry - my sister has ALS and I want that cure!! But, like all things that they show on TV, the "cure" won't be available for some time. I grieve that my sister won't have that time and I get angry at, not necessarily false hope, but hope that isn't available today!
So, I fixed a drink, went out on the patio and watch the monsoon rains. . . with some almonds.
I did go to Zumba this a.m., and I'm down another lb. Also, I ate more today, nothing I shouldn't have but more of it, and my sticks were pure purple! First time that's happened in a very long time. Let's see how it all shakes out come Monday (weigh-in day!)
