Two fantastic days

Well my journey is, once again, under way. I have had two really good days with even having some water to drink today - go Me !!!! I am going to try the "Finish a couple of glasses of water before having a Coke Zero" - that is how I got the two glasses in today. Not as much as it should be but at least it was a start.

Food has been good - I have been tracking everything that has gone into my mouth. Last night we had friends over for dinner - BBQ chicken, potato, butternut and peas and they brought lemon cheesecake from the Cheesecake Shop for dessert. I was very proud of myself for not having any !!!

Today I popped into Coles while I was out dropping the banking off and, for the first time in I don't know how long, I walked out without a chocolate, a packet of biscuits, a packet of chips or anything apart from a Coke Zero !!! Yay - go Me again !

I guess if I can continue to take this journey one day at a time, I will eventually get there. I know it isn't going to happen overnight but it will happen. Anne (sorry I can't remember how to add the hyper link to Anne's blog but this is the address if you would like to read about her experience tells the story of how she saw herself in a video and got her mojo back because she didn't want to go back to looking like that - well I had a similar thing happen but in reverse. We bought one of those boxes that has photos on the outside and a whole heap of little photo albums inside and so we pulled out the photos albums we have going back 30 odd years. Not that I had ever really forgotten how thin I used to be - I think I just chose not to remember (especially since I put all the weight on while pregnant). K wanted to know what illness A and I had in the photos as we were so thin we must have been sick !!!! Needless to say, I will never ever get to that weight again but I know that I can get a lot lower than what I am right now - and that is my mission this year - along with going back to studying and changing my career path.

Have a great week everyone, take care and look after yourself.
