Over the First Hump

Monday, November 25, 2013

Today I reached a minor milestone. Over the first hump on my ticker which means I'm a quarter of the way to my goal. The sad news is that I still have to lose 1 pound to make it to my previous lifetime high but that's OK. I got myself here and I'm going in the right direction now. emoticon I hardly know myself now. For the first time in my life I'm actually CRAVING salads. Even on previous weight loss journeys I've eaten very few salads. The other day I found myself making a trip to Walmart just to stock up on the Ready Pac salads. Convenient for me to grab for lunch and within the range I usually allow myself and it's tasting SO yummy to me. emoticon What's up with that? emoticon AND I haven't been tempted at all by all the crap that my husband keeps carrying in...cookies, candy, doughnuts, coffee cake. I think he tries to tempt me. I think he likes me fat. So far I've been strong and it feels like a different kind of strong. Not like I'm depriving myself to lose weight but that I'm finally treating myself well and putting what is good and healthy inside my body. Today I will celebrate that quarter that is gone and making it over the first hump. I'm not going to think of the three quarters left to go. It's one day at a time. One meal at a time. Today I'll be celebrating with a chef salad I think. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
