Almost Forgot

Thursday, January 31, 2013

As I was sitting here reveling in the calmness my big cup of hot blueberry herbal non-caffeinated tea had on me, I realized I had not blogged at all today. I'm ready to head off to bed but am not tired, just calm. I have a book in beside my bed and will read until my eyes become crossed then I'll turn out my clip-on headboard light and put the book down.

I had another relatively good day today. Some pain but that's usual. I hope I haven't jinxed myself when I got on the scale today and it showed I'd lost 2lbs, according to my tracker, but technically I've lost 2lbs I had already lost and then 2 additional pounds. So, I've really lost 4lbs this week and it's not yet Sunday when I do my actual weigh in.

Tracking my food has been not only an eye-opener but my life changer. Knowing what I'm putting in my mouth is 5X the calories that I should eat in an entire day, has stopped me in my tracks! I'm truly learning.

And when I ask a question, someone always give me an answer. If I can't use their advice, I try to still thank them but explain why I can't do or can't eat whatever. Today, I was just needing something and a wonderful Sparkler gave me the greatest advice. I had it in my pantry but never gave making a hot cup of tea as something I should do. I hope she knows just how grateful I am to her suggestion. It was simply delicious and had a very, very calming affect on me.

So, this blog doesn't have any profound statements, no wonderful announcements, just a simple post to say I'm learning and to say thanks for all the advice, the encouragement, and the support that I've received. I feel so blessed and know that I have found a safe place and will be successful.
