I don't know how I will be with my posting this week. We are doing SAT testing with our homeschool group. I am not used to having to get up and dressed and out of the house each morning. Between that and baseball each evening I can't sit on the computer much.
I am really surprised at how I have been able to consider what I eat and really stay focused this time on my diet. I weigh the cost of the food and have made a few allowances to stray a little, but it has been weighed and I don't let it make me decide to give it up and start another day. I went to a friend's house after testing and she had sub sandwiches. I went ahead and ate the sandwich but did not get any chips. I drank water instead of the sweet tea. I hope that I can continue on and get some weight off. I have a few future events that are mile markers. One is my daughter's graduation in May. Then, my 20th anniversary in July. Then, my birthday in August. 40th birthday. I want to start this season of my life thinner and in better shape to enjoy it. I want to hike, ski, wear a bathing suit, and have fun with the kids. All the recent photos since Christmas have shocked me. When I look in the mirror I don't see what I see in the photos. My mirror isn't full length so maybe that is a part of it. It is sad.
