Phew! It really doesn't take much!

If you read yesterday's blog post, you know I overdid it the previous couple of days, ballooning from 207 to 211 in just 3 days.
Yesterday, I measured every single thing that went into my mouth ... amazing how much I'd been underestimating by eyeballing. :) And I rediscovered what I already knew: I'd been eating too much. Waaaaaay too much. :)
Yesterday, I did my usual workout and stayed within my allocated calorie range. Drank the usual amount of water. Got enough sleep (just 5 hours, but I'd slept 10 the previous night, so it evens out - I'm feeling bright and alive today).
Woke up early and went to the gym in my building (there were only 2 others there) ... weighed in - I'm down to 209! Yay! So I guess it's obvious it can be done if I just face the reality that I eat too much if I'm eating without being fully in the moment.
My Forex coach, Jordan, keeps telling me about "Satori" which is apparently Japanese for being in the moment - I think I'll print out that word in 12-inch lettering and stick it all over the place as a reminder to be aware in everything I do, not just eating.
Today is going to be a great day - I have everything going for me if I am just willing to face the day with a smile (which I AM - I'm pretty much a super-positive person 99% of the time). I just need to focus on all the wonderful opportunities I have and all the great people in my life and the fabulous, fantastic times we're living in.
