I Believe I've Found Focus

Saturday, August 03, 2013

I am happy to say that for the past 36 hours I have found focus. I wrestled with much effort to get my mind set on renewed efforts at staying within my calorie range, and had a very successful day yesterday. My calorie count was on the low end, and I felt less sleepy during the day. I also ate healthier choices. I didn't realize how off track I was, I only felt fuzzy and aimless. I am better than that. I am strong, I am confident, I am successful...I decided to keep those things in mind.

You all, my dear SparkFriends, have had so much to do with getting myself turned around. I feel like I have my own personal cheering section in life and don't know what I'd do without you!

The funeral lunch went well, my help was much appreciated and I didn't worry about my outfit. I was calm and confident.

I'm really getting excited about the wedding celebration next is going to be a blast. I just found out my brother and his wife will make the drive from Wisconsin to West Virginia to be at the party. WooHoo! I love them so much and don't get to see them often at all. My parents can't make the trip, so it means a lot to my daughter to have someone from my family coming.

A small victory last night and this morning: two of our younger grandkids came to spend the night last night. I didn't fall into the stress eating cycle that usually plagues me when we have company!

Another small victory today: we went out to lunch and I didn't eat potato chips that hubby and I usually share, and I left a quarter of my sandwich.

It feels so good to be able to make healthy decisions!
