I am a year older and although I don't feel any wiser I know I can do this. I am on a journey to better health. It is a commitment to myself to take care of myself. I am almost to the end of my second week and already can tell the difference mentally. I didn't let the bit of rain yesterday stop me from walking, I just threw on my hoodie, grabbed my mp3 player and off I went. For my birthday today I had lunch out and bought a cake which I took (and left) at my nieces house. Before we went to dinner we had cake and I opened presents. We went to Olive Garden for dinner and even though I love their breadsticks I was able to really savor one and didn't even reach for a second. I fully enjoyed the Pasta e Fagioli soup and had two servings. I ordered Angel hair pasta with Alfredo sauce and meatballs but only had a couple noodles and was comfortably full. The leftovers are going to be split into two smaller meals and frozen. I've received text messages from my extended family and had a great day feeling the love from them all.
