I've been taking two steps back for every step forward, and it's making me so tired. Time to go straight and forward again. One of my best friends just reached her all-time weight loss high today, 168 pounds down, and it was such an encouragement to me. Then at a birthday lunch for one of the gals in our Weight Watcher group, this same friend discouraged me from asking the waitress for another round of garlic knots after out delicious Italian meal was finished. I wanted a few more to take home to eat with my left over lunch. But she was right, and I didn't need to add on all those extra calories and fat for the next meal at home. Instead I will saute' a nice bunch of fresh asparagus. Better choice. Sometimes we get blessed with a little prod to our conscience and someone becomes a little angel on our shoulder just when we need her. But wasn't it so nice that she shared her victory with me today by lending encouragement and wisdom just when I needed it most.
