Day 7 and all is well.
I made it through Sat. with my FT'ing goals. Saturday is my day that I want to 'celebrate' getting through the week. Not that my weeks are so difficult, but I think that idea started when I had five children at home (I had 5 children in 10 years-busy household) The weeks were detailed and schedule driven, and by Saturday I wanted a day off. It really wasn't a day off, but tried to create a different type of day. So, my point in saying all that is--Saturday became a day of celebrating with food too: going out to lunch, popcorn at the movies, a special dessert made for dinner...you get the idea. And we also made cookies most Sundays after church! So we celebrated all weekend!
Food is so central in whatever celebrations we enjoy-we have some major ones coming up. There will be some good postings in the next few months.
I still had a great Saturday. Hubby & I took a beautiful drive to see the Fall leaves and found some snow as well (I have pics I'll share) We went out to lunch, and I had a modified Cafe Rio grilled chicken salad: no rice or chips-I did eat a big bite of that homemade tortilla-dipped in that creamy cilantro dip--but quickly covered up the remaining tortillas with used napkins, etc. Out of mind...right! That was a little success too!
I can still celebrate my Saturday's, Thanksgiving, and all those special days that follow. It just takes a little planning.
I'll meet you all tomorrow, at the same place. I'll be sharing my weight loss-and any healthy weight loss is a reason to celebrate too! Not with food, but with a happy dance...and maybe a picture!
