Doing good.
July 31st, 2001 by Anna

My daily weigh-ins have been the lowest I’ve ever seen so I may actually hit goal this Thursday. I’m not going to hold my breath for it though. I gave myself two weigh-ins and if that’s what it takes, that’s what it takes.

This morning I took my daughter to day care on the bike. I pulled her in the trailer. It was only a five minute ride one way, but it felt good to get my body moving again. I should have kept going but I’m really stressed right now about non-weight related issues and I wanted to get home and fix some problems. But I might take a real ride tomorrow morning. I can’t go in the afternoon or evening – it’s just too darn hot.

Yesterday I really, REALLY wanted to go over in points. I had made bread-maker bread and it was like 6 points a slice! Yikes! I only had 2 left on the day (using my target of 20 and not my upper range). It was very hard for me to stay in control and realize I could have a bigger slice the next day. I had to keep reminding myself that I don’t have that far to go… but I have got to keep moving my feet.

I have to say my husband is incredibly supportive and sometimes in a very quiet, subtle way. Maybe he doesn’t know I notice. I need to thank him. The other day, we were eating at the Wing Stop, a local hot wings restaurant. He ordered french fries for himself and Meghan. Now the Wing Stop has the BEST fries. They’ve got the best seasoning. And they’re thin but skin on potatoes. Oh goodness my mouth is watering just thinking about them. But I didn’t really have enough points for fries. There they were, sitting in the middle of the table. Maybe Jonathan noticed me staring at them, contemplating how many I could have for a point. He casually slid the basket all the way to his side of the table and behind his basket of wings so I couldn’t even really SEE it anymore. What a huge difference it made for me, not to have to stare at those fries while I ate my wings and beans. Thank goodness for Jonathan.
