So I'm down another 1 1/2 pounds or so. I'm actually pretty happy with that. This past week has been so off-kilter that I wasn't sure what to expect at the scale. This was a pleasant surprise.
The lesson I re-learned and wish to pass on is this: Even if you feel all messy-like inside, keep doing what's right and you'll likely find positive results. And even if you don't, at least you won't dig yourself further into a hole.
PS - Tonight I took a little drive (while running an errand). I got in my car. Turned on some talk radio. And do you know what popped into my mind? I thought about how much I love(d) going to fast food drive thrus late at night. Eating in my car while listening to the radio. Or sometimes just anticipating the binge that would surely come once I arrived home.
I didn't seriously contemplate making a detour to any of my old junk food haunts. But that feeling was still there. A lot of self-defeating feelings still stick around, even when we wish they wouldn't. It's a reality of life, until (hopefully) one day it isn't.
