All is going well thus far...even with the massive amounts of chocolate, cookies and pies and cakes around for the rest of the household...I am sticking completely to my resolve to stay with this.
This is, partially, because I woke up with what seems to be the beginnings of gout. My big toe was hurting terribly for no reason and when I researched it, it seems that this is due to a build up of uric acid which is a by product of "rich foods" and obesity.
And I say, enough. So there isn't any yumminess that is going to sway me now--it's really scary to think I might be enjoying myself right into an early grave.
