well, today was a mixed bag ....I didn't eat anything BAD except for some sweet potato fries.....and no, they weren't baked. And then I made a vegetable/bean/rice soup that had too many starchy veggies in it so it wasn't idea. But I didn't go nuts today like I did yesterday. I was praising God that after I polished off a bag of cookies in the overnight---I still lost a pound.

I need to cut up some veggies to accompany the avocado dip I made for them yesterday. Maybe if I do that (prep them) I would eat those instead of something more insidious. I did not exercise today....Maybe before bed I will do a bit of something.

I am getting giveaway bookmarks at my impending book signing, so I designed them online and they should be ready for pickup tomorrow along with some publicity posters I also had printed.

I feel so sad that my family is eating only take out or grocery store snacks....and I am eating healthfully in the midst of that. My husband has very serious heart disease and my daughter has migraines and issue with her time of the month...all of which could be helped or eliminated if they would eat right.

I've lost fourteen pounds thus far. I'm hoping to hit the 30 lb lost point in the next couple of weeks. That will bring me back to Onederland which I haven't visited since a year ago when I did this program. I think once I get down to there, people will start noticing. I can see (and feel ) differences in me due to the weight loss. I've lost at least two chins and pants that I had to struggle into, now fit and some are loose. But at the same time I still feel hideously fat. My weight loss seems
inconsequential..so I imagine that I no longer have to carry three five pound bags of flour around anymore. I'm so weak I wonder, how did I even get around? Or a 15 pound bag of garden soil. No, this is not an insignificant loss. All I am looking forward to is delivering the enormous baby that it looks like I'm carrying around my middle. Ii have the most dangerous of the shapes...I'm an apple...it's all right in my gut.

Gratitude time...it's that time of year although is should be every day of the year. I am grateful for Dr Fuhrman for sharing his discoveries and insights ...He has helped thousands of people and I want to be one of them.

    emoticon That is a significant amount of weight that you aren't carrying with each step. It makes each step easier and improves many aspects of your health that you can't see or feel. But you will be dodging those bullets, healthwise.
    You're doing emoticon
    I know it is harder when the people around you are over eating. And hard not to get resentful that you can't or choose not to overindulge too.

    You are in my prayers. Keep moving and eating those veggies! Brava!
