It WORKED!!!! And I Know Will Continue To Now! Thanks All Of You!
Saturday, October 13, 2018
Thank you all for your kind words yesterday and yes, John is the BEST person that ever came into my life.
I will tell you that I did NOT even want any peanut butter last night nor today!
I feel like an addict that kicked the habit. I will report often how I am doing though....I don't take this for granted.
Today was so productive in many ways. We walked as far as we used to everyday and we plan to continue it indefinitely. Then we came back and went to the basement where the out of season clothing is stored. We went through so much of our clothes and got rid of what was no longer fitting or needed. I was pleasantly surprised because in my mind I felt that I had gained so much weight that I would never be able to get even close to the weight I was at before. But I was pleasantly surprised when I tried some on (of the larger sized clothes a size 12) and they actually FIT...albeit snugly. But they fit! That was my biggest shot of happiness. When I entered the hospital last year I was a size 6 and they were loose and John said the doctors kept telling him, "she needs some meat on her bones" and I can accept that so that is what I will shoot for.
Now that I am "off" peanut butter I KNOW I can do it. I feel like an alcoholic or drug addict except that now I know I can make it.
You just do not know how wonderful it is to be amongst you all. After all, we all understand each other, don't we?
I can be honest with what is wrong with me without fear of repercussions. We all can! Where else could we/I feel so safe?
BTW I made John 2 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches after we cleaned the basement and was not bothered in the least! I wish the same for each and every one of us. And it IS possible!
I will definitely report as often as I can because it feels good being able to write it out whether anyone reads it or not. I wish you all to be as blessed by spark and spark friends as I have been!
Blessings to you all!
