I got on the scale today and I have lost a total of 10 pounds. I am now at 230. God that is an awful number but it is slowly and surely getting lower. That is a good thing. (I love using these different fonts.) I know it might be hard to read but it is just sometimes for fun. I have been thinking about posting a picture but still can’t decide. I don’t know. What stays in my head is that I am thinking about food all the time. Not wanting to eat it, but not wanting to eat it. Calories, how much is in each thing. I went to lunch with some church members on yesterday and had a great salad. There was free ice cream with the salad bar and the friends with me said they all were going to get a cone. I did not discuss anything about getting it or even talk about it. Then all of a sudden, all were asking me if I was going to get a cone. I said no. I was trying to be good. Well, the all said it was just a little cone. I could get one. Well, I bowed into the pressure and got a very small cone of just vanilla ice cream. It was okay. I savored it as I vowed it would be a very long time before I had it again.
I can see how easy it is for friends to sabotage a diet. They may not mean it…..well I am not so sure. I can see it is very easy. For me I will have to avoid bowing to the pressure of eating things I do not want to eat. I have a goal See the swimsuit below. I am still aiming for that this summer.
