Okay, So Far . . .

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

My family visit is going well, so far. The memorial service went well. Lots of cousins to greet after several years of not seeing them. My brother is behaving pretty well.

I'm enjoying feeling comfortable in my body. My brother did not mention my weight loss [that would be too close to a compliment] but he didn't get a chance to criticize my lack of progress, so that's a point for me! I got a phone call from a close friend who has moved away, and that cheered me up and encouraged me.

Not really finding time to track my food but trying to make good choices when I get the chance. Need to drink more water and I'm doing well on that today. Traveling disorients me so much! So, two days down, three to go. I can do this!

    I'm glad to hear that it is going well and your brother is behaving. It sounds like you are still feeling better, so that is even better news. Have a great evening.

And your brother might not be willing to extend a compliment, but you have done an incredible job and you know it - which is worth 10 times as much!

    I know what you mean. Hope the rest of the visit goes well, and try not to let your brother's toxicity get you down.
