Today I am quite excited. My husband and I recently moved and tomorrow, two very dear friends are coming to visit! One of them was a woman I walked with 5 days a week, through rain, snow, sunshine, heat, thunderstorms, you name it, we were out walking. I think we walked together for at least 5 years. I miss our walks and talks soooo much! Yes, I still walk, but it sure is nicer when you have someone to walk with!
Then Friday, I get to visit with our two oldest children. I have not seen them since Christmas. I know for some of you that may not be such a long time, but it is for me!
Sunday we are also having some company! I have not seen them since November. Again, this woman is such a dear friend. We have spent many hours every week together sewing and quilting. I so miss her company in doing this too!
So yes, I have reason to be excited!
Plus, I managed to sit down and eat everything I ate yesterday. I am so bad about nibbling and just standing while I do. Sometimes I even eat a meal while standing! This is a bad habit and I am going to break it! Today is going well for that plan too!!

Amina, I am so glad we can encourage each other, even when we don't realize that we are!
I will enjoy my visits for sure!
In my many, many years of diets, I was told not to do anything but eat while eating. No tv, no books, magazines, just eat! It is amazing how when you are not paying attention, that the food just disappears!!
I know you can get in the habit of eating at the table. I know it must be hard when you are by yourself, but I know you will enjoy your meals so much more, as will I as I continue to make it a habit to eat at the table too!

What a lovely, happy blog! Made me smile just reading it, so I can imagine just how excited you are, and how much you're looking forward to catching up with friends and family. Enjoy every moment of being with them.
As for sitting down to eat, you made me realize something about my eating habits - I always sit down while eating, but unfortunately it's usually in a recliner, while watching tv. That's it, no more doing that. From now on, I will take the time to set the table, switch off the tv, and pay attention to my food as I eat it, so there will be no more sudden realization when I glance down at my plate that I've already eaten everything without noticing. I'm so happy I haven't yet had breakfast, so I can make the change straight away,
Thank you for helping me to realize something about myself I guess I've chosen to ignore for way too long. I guess after my girls all left home I gradually just let myself do something I always said I would never do.
