To cease smoking is the easiest thing I ever did; I ought to know because I've done it a thousand times. - Mark Twain
Not true with dieting. Stopping that was tough. I'm so glad I did though! heck, I've lost 45 lbs since then!
Eating sensibly is working so well for me. I'm feeling reflective but don't have a lot new to blog about today, just chugging along, eating light and moving a bit every day. 45 lbs down, 34 since I started blogging. Back at 289 lbs I didn't even know who Geneen Roth was, nor had I heard the term "intuitive eating." Instead, I realized that I knew what I needed to do to get healthy, that I had known for a long time, and that I head to deal with the mental side of eating before I could getin anything accomplished in that direction. One of my greatest friends at that time mentioned the book she was reading (Women, Food, and God) which I avoided reading for weeks. Finally, I gave in and read it. It supported everything that I knew already AND helped me with some tools to sort out some of the mental stuff. It led me to lots and lots of excellent references. Soon after, my bil shared his blog with me and here I am.
Tomorrow is coming soon, and I'll be ready for it. Lots of phone calls to make and things to take care of, small road trip in the am but home sweet home most of the day. There will be sweating and there will be fruit consumed.
