Checking in...

Just thought I would check in to let you all know I'm still around! Still doing well as a matter of fact! Checked the scale yesterday, and I am INDEED under the 300 lb. mark. Yes! Yesterday I ate a little more during the day than I usually do, so I made up for it at dinner and only ate a little. Finally, I feel like I am able to recognize my body's cues about food. When I'm full, I stop eating. But when I'm hungry, I eat. It's amazing when I realize that most of the time I'm not really hungry, but I eat because it's "time". Hopefully when I get back on a schedule next week I can still listen to my body and hunger signals.

I have been slacking on water, so my goal is to get back on that. I made some Crystal Light yesterday and that seems to help while I'm at home. It stopped raining, so I might go bust a block or two. I'm a little down today. I have a non-marriage-related situation that has been going since right before I left Clyde that I haven't talked about on here. (Can you believe I actually don't talk about EVERYTHING on here!) Thing is, I'm not TOTALLY sure that Clyde doesn't still read my blog, so I have to keep a few things wrapped up tight. But even though I'm down, I don't want to eat about it. If anything, it has made my resolve stronger to put me first and lose this weight.

I've been reading everyone's blogs even though I haven't posted. I love your blogs - they keep me so motivated and focused on the task at hand!
