Left fork, right fork, or no fork!
Tuesday, April 08, 2014
I have, by the grace of God, remained strong throughout the past week, and put that inner strength to good use by abstaining from the compulsive overeating that had begun to become the norm for me. I continued to stay focused on the next weigh in and how I wanted to feel when I finally stepped on the scale at my meeting on the following Wednesday morning. For those of you who actually own a scale and live with the little creature in your home, you can just hop on and off whenever. But for me, I've got to make it through the week, all 7 days, without so much as a whisper of how the wind is blowing. Was that little snack a detriment? or did some activity burn it off before it permanently took up residence on my body? So I get to Sunday night, which seems to be the limit of my endurance, 4 full days, and I suddenly can feel my resources weaken. There seems to be something about the 4 day span for me; when I get 4 days out from a restart, I lose my appetite and gain strength, but when I'm in it for the long haul, 4 days out seems to be a cross roads time of "take the left fork, or the right fork!
So this past week I've been picking up the right fork or no fork at all, and I think it's going to be good. Even though I've been on an anti-inflammatory steroidal medicine, I'm still very hopeful. Hoping to post good news in the next few days.
