I went a bit over my calories today! I've been really faithful to the suggested range for quite a while now, so I decided to let myself relax a little. It wasn't anything exaggerated: I've ended up at 1,621 calories when my suggested range (pretty standard, I think) is between 1,200 & 1,550. I was still hungry after lunch, so I went down to the cafe at work & bought a big cookie. Then my husband poured beer at supper, & I hadn't drunk any in several weeks so I agreed. No big deal.
It just feels really, really good to be almost well. You know how wearing certain clothes can make you feel good too: I wore my favorite black jeans (without topstitching--they look like fitted slacks) to work today, & whenever I saw myself in the bathroom mirror I felt slim & pretty.
Still have a few pounds to go for my goal, but it's nice to be able to enjoy life NOW.
