Follow Me Friday! Week 5! Exactness paid off!!


I am just going to jump right in with my results.
Being exact really paid off this week.

I lost 4.5 lbs!


I am now down 23.3 lbs!
But if you read last weeks post
I wrote about my overall weight loss journey.
So along those lines,
from my highest weight,
I am down 96.3 lbs!

Can I tell you 
I haven't been in the 180's
in 13 years!
That is a really long time!
I have struggled with my weight for so long
that it almost feels unreal!

I kind of did a double take
when I got on the scale!
Could it really be that 
I am in the 180's? 
I did a little jig after that!

The greatest part of this process
is the reminders
that food doesn't have to control me!

This week
I had an absolute melt down!
I got myself in such a funk!
I had gotten so down on myself
that I freaked out
at my poor family!
Yelled at everyone.
Complained about the state of our home
that is messier than I like.
I made everyone cry including myself.
It wasn't like me!
I went to bed so I wouldn't yell at anyone else.
Left my amazing husband to 
pick up the pieces.
Amazingly, my kids forgave me
and maybe even put in a little more effort
to keep the house in order...
at least for a few days!

This may not seem like an accomplishment
but in the past,
what would i have done?
I would have drowned my sorrow
in whatever sugary, salty treat that I could find.
I did not.
I chose to get away from the kitchen.
It was a very deliberate thought...
get upstairs away from the food
and don't go down there for anything!

Besides getting away from the food,
I am all about sharing!
I sent messages to my 
fantastic Dukan Diet inspirational friend!
She has just the right things to say to help me through.
I also have gotten very open with my husband.
I will literally say...
I am struggling
I am craving junk food
I want to eat anything bad I can find.
Just saying those things often takes the edge off
and then he is more aware and 
helps me fight through the cravings!

Thanks again for all the
wonderful support
that I get from each of you!
It helps me more than you know!

i will

i am strong
i can take time for me, that is okay
i am beautiful, inside and out
i CAN find time to eat a healthy balanced diet
i am not less of a person if my house is messy
i can do anything i put my mind to
