coffee without cream...who knew
meals were good yesterday but had some chocolate chips and peanut butter...grateful i got right back on plan at dinner. used to i would use it as an excuse to keep on bingeing. sort of like having a flat tire and instead of accepting the news and changing it, i would shoot the other 3 tires out. it was so self defeating. i didn't know i was a perfectionist and if it wasn't perfect, i gave up. trying to accept my humanity now and live one meal at a time.
no more low carb at this new center, so i will just have to be careful. going to focus on protein and veggies. dessert once a week or ice cream from the ice cream parlor.
when i had a shower that required a curtain before i had my handicap shower put in, i bought a beautiful hand made shower curtain from a lady on etsy that i loved. i gave it to beth and thought i would never need it. she has not used it and is giving it back and i am so happy. it was $75 and is so sentemental to me because i had always wanted something this lady makes, so now i will have it in my bathroom there. bright red with hand stitched hearts and it makes me happy just thinking about it. it's cheery and i'm happy just thinking about it.
i sleep in a recliner so in my new apt there will be 2 bedrooms and one will have my bedroom furniture and one my recliner, a comfy chair and my tv. that will be my sleeping room and for watching tv. that way my living room and bedroom will stay clean and keeping this little room clean will be easy.
will miss my friends here but grateful for my time here. i have loved the continental but it is time for this change. i can make specialist appts and they will provide transportation. can go to bank, walmart or other stores weekly and here that would not be an option.
i am looking forward to nutritious meals and not cooking. not keeping food in my apt. except for fruit or yogurt. that way my option to snack is limited. used to if someone else was deciding my meals, i would freak out. food was everything to me and no one would control it. now its ok and i just feel grateful. i can remember going to overeaters anonymous convention with a suitcase with hidden candy just to be safe because i was afraid of someone controlling my food. i've come a long way, thankfully. wish i had had this peace of mind years ago.
