I just finished watching a romantic comedy. I thought about my life of today and I cried as I watched this movie. For me that is a good thing. I have come a long way. In my past I would of cried as I ate my Ben and Jerry's. I would of watched the whole movie with a HUGH bag of m&m's but not tonight. I just sat through the movie cried and ate nothing. Being an emotionally eater this is a big step for me. I am do dang proud of myself for this. I must admit I am proud of me for today. I went out with Dennis for valentines lunch. We went for a scenic drive and took his truck through the car wash. I came home and did something's for myself. I have come such a long way in this healthy life style. I do know that it hasn't been easy. Food has always been my drug of choice. Well not today. Emotionally today has been tough. But I didn't eat my way through it. I shared valentines candy with Dennis but I also walked some today too. I do know that I can handle this emotional journey and I can do it with out eating my way through it. I do know there will be times when it will be tough.......But I am tougher. God is teaching me a new way to eat. He has told me to eat from my joy. When I eat from joy I make good choices in what I eat. So I continually try to do that. When I have a slip up I get right back up do the right thing. These days I make more good choices than bad ones. And when I do make a bad one I do what I said I would do. Which is 'If I am going to eat it I better being willing to work it off.......so I do. In closing I do know I can do this healthy life style and do it with success.
