lbsgoner's Journal, 11 January 2013

Busy day today. Tonight I went out with a friend to Bonefish Grill. She is getting a divorce, both of us have high school seniors and lots to talk about. I told her I was low-carbing it and we settled on splitting the ceviche appetizer. We were talking and watching the Carolina/Miami game and just decided we didn't want dinner at all. Love that when the appetite disappears! We headed back to our town and went to another spot to watch the end of the game and ran into another girl from our crowd, who joined us and ordered some thick cut potato chips covered in a gorgonzola cream sauce. (I tried a taste of the sauce on my pinkie:-). )We've all been through so much in each other's lives here, thick and thin. Death for some, divorce for some, disappointments & triumphs with our children who we seem to have collectively parented. We've been there in the middle of the night for each other and on all sorts of crazy weekends singing in to turkey basters etc.
I know with my friends that I don't have to worry about being pulled off my diet. They have been with me through my quitting drinking and my quitting smoking and I guess they know that once I decide a thing is done, it is done. They also know that it is my faith that makes it possible. So I can do my part, but I have to hand it over to God for the parts I struggle with. Letting go, letting God.

It helps so much when you have a support system like that! The last time I went out to eat with friends, one of them actually made fun of me for ordering a salad for my meal, but that's okay. I don't need her "approval" lol. I'm glad you had a good time :)

Sounds like you have a life to be very grateful for! And being able to turn it over to your Higher Power has real potency.
