I have been doing great this week and other than a little tired, I feel better. I've limited my eating to 3 meals and 1 snack a day. I've been thinking about cutting red meat from my diet, but the rest of the family is not on board with that idea. I have entered into my first Mud Race. It is the weekend of Mother's Day and I have convinced my mom to go along with me. Maybe since she is being such a good sport, I will have to get us massages after the race. I still trying to break my addiction to the scale, it is like a drug. The scale can either make you feel really good or really bad. When I get my dependency to food under control, I then depend on the scale. Instead of burying my emotions under food, my mood depends upon what that number says on the scale. Next week, my goal will be to stop weighing myself everyday. I have to keep reminding myself everything is one day at a time. I gained one pound at a time, now it is time to lose it one day at a time.
