Today I had plans to see a friend at lunch whom I haven’t seen since last month. I looked for something to wear and was happy to discover I could wear a top that had been looking frumpy just last month due to the extra weight. I got dressed and realized that I was feeling thinner! I know it’s really just a mind-set, but an important one. That feeling of joy in my skin is one of the things I have been missing this last year. When I got to my friend’s house she remarked that she could tell I had lost weight; it’s possible she was just being nice, but never-the-less I felt thrilled.
Some difficulties today in drinking the required water… I guess I just didn’t work hard enough at this task. Also after dinner, I was still feeling hungry so I went back for a rice cake with beans; I justified it by telling myself I chose not to have the optional grain with dinner. Sometimes for me feeling successful (like this morning) can lead me to act over confident and make poor choices, so tomorrow I will be extra careful about my intake.
