T-6 Days- Thanksgiving Countdown


Friday, November 16, 2012

I can't thank you all enough for all of your support and encouragement!

I arrived last night and so far have had several challenges. First of all- Oh my goodness, I have NEVER flown on an airplane without a giant bag of peanut M&M's... and that's all I could think about ALL DAY yesterday! But I stayed strong, and I think blogging about it helped strengthen my resolve not to give in. It was hard though.

This morning my grandparents and I had a little birthday party for my daughter and thankfully she did not want any birthday cake. She did request an apple pie, and I ate a half a slice of apple pie. I did not give in to the eggs fried in butter and bacon fat, bacon, bread, and other stuff that they had prepared for me and they were very kind about it.

Which reminds me- regarding their reaction to my weight loss: It was actually surprisingly positive! They were shocked. I guess I never realized a 20 lbs loss would show up so drastically but apparently it does (I was about 166 lbs last time they saw me). They were very respectful not to push any food onto me. It was almost as if they understood that I certainly must not indulge nearly as much as I used to because they seemed to kinda assume I wasn't going to eat all the goodies they had laid out for me.

I'm pleasantly surprised by their reaction, and how respectful they were!

~~~T-6~~~
So far today I'm feeling pretty positive! I'm going to have a healthy Lebanese dinner with my girlfriend and her husband.
I think the only challenge I'll have this evening is not over-eating at dinner, and not drinking to much if I have a drink with friends later (this will lead to excess calories and munchies).

I'm still holding strong to the plan not to over-eat or over-indulge until Thanksgiving day!!

Highlights: There is space between my thighs for the first time EVER!!!


Lowlights: I saw my mom (who I haven't seen or talked to in years) and it was awkward because there's a lot of family drama that is unresolved. I hope this does not trigger a binge for me.

Thank you all so much for your support!

    You look fantastic.

I can identify with the family drama. I have a very similar situation. Hold on. You'll get through this.

Happy to hear that people are respecting your wishes.

Keep up the awesome work!

Sorry things are difficult concerning your Mom.
If you feel the urge to binge try very hard to remind yourself that that will only make you feel worse. Much worse. Do a headstand!


Also, jealous... I have nover had space between my thighs. Maybe I will get there someday.

    Keep Sparking! Remember your Mom saw you also, so it was awkward for both of you. Do not let it get to you. If you do slip and overeat, simply get back on track.
