Addiction...

Monday went well. I was able to take the girls on the park trail and we walked the 2 miles. That was about all the exercise I did... but I am sore this morning. I think part of that problem is that I didn't drink enough water yesterday. I need to focus on that today!

I was talking to my wanderful hubby about food. He was saying it was an addiction, just like any other addiction. He would know, bless his heart, he has been sober for 3 years now... with an occasional beer here and there. I always tell him how amazed I am that he has done so well. Then I realized .... HE WAS RIGHT! Food is an addiction for me. I realized it even more when I was driving down the street, and right next to the bar in town is a McDonalds...Pizza Hut...Taco Bell.. So it made me feel even more convicted. Just like he has to drive past that bar everyday..I have to drive past that fast food. Just like he doesn't go out and buy beer to put in the fridge.. I need to not buy fatty food and snacks to put in the fridge. Just like he did it.. I CAN DO IT!!

So, today is running and upper body conditioning...

HAVE A BLESSED DAY

great job, tigerlilly. 2.5 inches lost is wonderful. i'm really amazed by your strength of will - sometimes i think of my extra weight as an unwelcome intruder in my home, in my life. i guess i should be willing to defend myself against it as ruthlessly as i would a human intruder :)

keep up the good work and know that we are all behind you ...
