    sometimes I think the texture is the hook .... it is mind boggling what will trigger & it always (A-l-w-a-y-s) turns my mind in on itself ....and getting still with myself starts at breakfast @ meal one.... that's always the same too the part about breakfast starting off setting things to right.

    I know it's hard when it seems everything revolves around fitness and food, calories, etc etc.
    Sometimes you just gotta have some 'me' time, some timout, just relax, do something fun, do nothing!
    It's also good to refocus every now and again. Look at where you are, where you want to be, how to get there. Are you enjoying what you are doing, is there anything you'd like to change up.
    We will get to goal John, and we are working damn hard to get there!!

    Great smart lady who wrote that letter, thank you soooo much for sharing. John, you inspire so many with your soulful gut honesty and all your knowledge you pass along. Glad you have this person in your life to help you when needed.

    You will get back on track today because you are honest with yourself and intuitive. I really like you even though I have never met you. You have a lot going for you and sending good energy your way.

    This vlog was amazing! You don't know how inspiring you are. "Deb's Letter" was also amazing. Thank you so much for posting. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Firstly, I want you to know how inspirational you are. You are so brave to share this vlog today. It is not easy to let people know when you have let yourself down. Know, that everyday matters and yes, you did slip up today but don't let that slip into tomorrow. You have all the power in the chooses you make so give yourself the power back and don't let the self-deprecating voice inside your head (we all have one) rule your life and your choices. You would never be friends with that voice that says "you can't do it", "your not good enough", " you will fail". Sometimes, all of us can be our biggest bully but what we really need to is to be our best cheerleaders! We are the only people that we have to spend the rest of our lives with. You should know that you have inspired me to keep pushing and to keep going. You are one of the only reasons I make on to spark people. Know that you have inspired others to make positive change. We all believe in you and also need you! You can and WILL do this. You are not the choices you made yesterday. You are today. You are the present and you have control.

    So once upon a time you would eat like this and feel no regrets, no guilt, no shame. Today is a lesson. First, you KNOW how to eat well. You are the King of good food choices. Getting off your meds is a success, and so often when we have a big success we sabatoge ourselves because we don't feel we deserve to succeed or are afraid of failing.... so we put it there to stop anticipating. Such a silly behaviour.

    Every day is about choices. Sometimes good, and sometimes not. Realizing it is a choice, is the first step. Making more and more good choices each day is something to celebrate. You did a great job describing choices in your blog.

    As for the food.... I hated having to log butter. 100 calories at every meal for NOTHING.

    I know that if you are exercising as hard as it sounds, you will need to eat more. Maybe it will be a reality check talking to a dietician but I have a feeling you KNOW what to do.

    You are doing well. Good blog John. Justyna

    Do double day on Saturday!!!! and Zumba Friday. I think Debs hit it on the head. How about you find something else: outside Sparkpeople, Zumba, T25, 5Ks. How about you grab your friends and go dancing?? John, crazy is not bad it is challenging. You have come so far. I hope you got some sleep and TOGETHER we can all get through this. You are NEVER alone!
