...but actually that's okay. This will be our last child married, and 8'm going to enjoy the preparations and the wedding even if it does get crazy at times. When I think of the years I've wasted when I could have been losing weight, what's another 7 weeks? I'll eat carefully, but will enjoy a few treats too. I'll exercise when I can, but I know I'll miss some time too. I'm not going to beat myself up about it.
Yesterday we had a surprise party at church for our priest's 40th birthday. About 50 people attended, and everyone had a good time. I skipped the cake, and kept busy so I didn't over-eat - success!
Today one of the church groups put on a fund-raising lasagna lunch to support our outreach projects. I chose the vegetarian option, a little bit of salad and didn't go back for seconds - success again!
Is there a lesson in this blog? For me, the lesson is that I am learning to control portions, which was always a huge problem for me, especially when eating out. Thank you, Spark People and my Spark friends for helping me on my journey.
