Yesterday was a good day and I went to bed feeling like I had been successful for the day. One day at a time and sometimes one minute at a time. I had one of those "one minute at a time" times late yesterday afternoon but I made it through. When this hits me, I must not touch food or it will lead to a binge so I have to occupy my mind with other things until I get over it.
I followed my eating plan quite well, did the exercises with the video that I have chosen to follow but fell down when it came to drinking the water. I have trouble remembering the water. I will have to come up with a strategy to help me remember.
I appreciated the positive support I got from fellow members and it helped get me through the day. It is wonderful how a few positive words can help so much.
Tomorrow, I plan to set a few personal goals just to get started with the weekly and daily goal setting. These are not always about losing weight but more about doing things that will make my surroundings more appealing and keeping myself occupied doing activities that I enjoy. I might as well have some fun while on this long journey that I am embarking on.
