Glad to be resetting today going forward. February had its ups and downs. A wonderful milestone was February 8 when I completed the half in the Mississippi Marathon. The down side of the event was that I loaded up on energy gel that was passed out along the way and it triggered my sugar addiction and I have struggled to accept Gods power to protect me from ingesting CRYSTAL SUGAR in its many disguises. The low was just last night when I pigged out on two whole boxes of Valentine chocolates I stocked up on at the half price close outs.

My behavior round food has been insane.

In spite of a great deal of exercise minutes (

Although down two pounds in the first two weeks of February I have put back on six pounds since Valentine's day closing the month with a four pound gain.

Today I am back in the saddle of righteous eating through God's grace.

As for me I definitely need my contact with God to give me the daily reprieve from out of control obsessing around food.

What one consumes in private one definitely wears in public.

Thanking God for abstinence from sugar today.

Looked up the location for a nearby overeters anonymous meeting and will attend beginning Tuesday.

Heading out ona cruise March 9. Can be fun and rewarding.

Much wonder as spring is awaiting.

    Well, the sugar addiction can "come in like a lion and go out like a lamb"!! It is, after all, March. Bad idea to stock up on half-price Valentine candy. You are worth so much more than clearance candy!! Every minute of every day is a chance to start over, to choose to make good choices and to believe that you are worth it! Enjoy your cruise.

    I really wonder how one day can mess up so much of the work we've done. Is it because of the lifestyle we are trying to incorporate or something else?
    Before SP something like that wouldn't have bothered us in terms of the scale, mostly because if it had we all would have been much larger than we were.
    I think that is the biggest reason I try to have no mess up days. The scale barely budges with months of work but one day sends everything backwards. ugh
    well enough ranting from me
    You can do this!
