Meanwhile, back at the ranch
Thursday, January 17, 2013
So I have been quiet. Not struggling as much, nor having wild success. I suppose both are reasonable. The scale has been inching down - I am just shy of 20 pounds lost, and feeling good. Some days are high motivation days, some not so much. I am keeping on keeping on.
What feels best, right now, is that the early desperation has mostly passed, and the urge to just eat is lessened greatly. I can pass by a cupcake in the break room at work. If it isn't worth the calories, I stop eating it. I don't search out an after work sweet treat, but have been eating hummus and veggies instead. And it is okay.
Dad is also keeping on. I have friends who have experienced this who say it is normal. The depression, the physical ups and downs, and also the stress for the family. Comforting to hear that it will pass and we will get through it.
One day at a time. It is all one day at a time. It works if I work it. So I am working it.
