Putting temptation behind me ...
Sunday, January 31, 2010
Thank you all for your concern. I was tempted, but did not take ANY steps to move forward with the temptation.
I kept my son and daughter in law with me all day long. I took my dog for a walk, went to Dallas to my son's favorite place for breakfast (where I was super good - an egg white omelet with vegetables, no cheese and whole wheat toast). I planned my meals for the next week so that I can stop at the grocery store on the way home from work tomorrow evening. I started a pot of beans so that I will have something for dinner even if I don't have the energy for the grocery shopping.
My daughter in law, who is in her second semester of cosmetology school cut my hair for me. I have gone to the same hairdresser for years and he just will not cut it to shoulder length - it is always at least two inches past my shoulders and it just cannot hold a style at that length. But I feel like I look terrible with short hair (and Ian dislikes it) so I don't like to change stylists either. DIL got it PERFECT - and then she even styled it for me.
I am so grateful to have such a wonderful family and supportive friends.
It was amazing how cathartic it was to just realize that this (the temptation of cheating) was what was going on with my eating. It took me a while to realize it. But once I was able to put a name to it - it was so much easier to get back on track with my eating also.
I truly love my husband and I have a very happy marriage. I WON'T cheat on him - I would rather weigh 500 pounds - I just want to be faithful and a healthy weight.
Thank you for your help and support.
