morning weight: xxx lbs
WOW! Not only did I NOT gain while my mother was here, I LOST 4 lbs more.
I survived! I exceeded my expectations!
If I can survive a week like that, I think I really can do this. I've walked through the most temptations I can imagine. I turned down aisle upon aisle of refined carbs. I resisted offers to eat out at very fattening restaurants, and when I was in a restaurant I kept my order carb-free. I got through the constant comments about what I was eating, and the tiny little moments of guilt I felt for taking care of myself instead of joining my mother in chips and ice cream and loaves of bread. I did not eat my emotions. Granted, I was a bit cranky having to defend myself all the time, but in the end I did what was best for me. Perhaps I can work on the crankiness.
This is a very helpful boost - I need to deal with the other stresses of work and Sena's illness.
