30 pounds down - it's been a while

Tuesday, May 05, 2020

The one constant during this uncertainty is my ability to control my food. I have no control over anything else. I am an educator, finding my way through these days, trying to meet the needs of my students. My own children are self educating at home and my husband who has been working remotely, goes back this week. Our family is privileged to have not been hit throughout this but uncertainty of other things find their ways into my thoughts. Last night, it was my kids and their love for arcades and how unlikely in 2020 they will put their hands on multiple games in a mall storefront. I wasn't sad and I didn't grieve, but it's those thoughts that make me realize normal is a figment of our imagination and there will be a new normal I imagine.

I can control any of the above things...BUT I can cut myself off of food at 1350 calories and say enough.

I reached 30 pounds down. I have about 7 until I hit ONEderland. I intend to make it there.
