Johanne's Journal, 29 June 2012

Now that I have my WOE back on track, I have promised myself I will journal every day whether good or bad. My oldest daughter and granddaughter arrived safely last night and we had dinner at Applebee's. I stayed under my RDI, so felt great.

Yesterday was my "official" weigh in, but this morning I was down another 1.6 lbs to 223. Amazing what you can do once you turn on the little switch in your brain. Mine clicked to "off" at Thanksgiving and I've been fighting to turn it back on since. I finally figured out how to fix the late night cravings and that was the major problem. Yay! This little engine is back on track. "I think I can. I THINK I can. I THINK I CAN!!!

I'm headed over to my son's house to spend time with the D and GD. D made me the most beautiful afghan. It's linen color, double weight and the pattern is reversible sea shells. It's extremely heavy and absolutely gorgeous. Next winter I am going to be WARM. What a lovely surprise.

It is amazing how much of this is mental, getting your mind in the right place and keeping it there.

No kidding. As far as I'm concerned, it's ALL mental. I know it is for me.

I'm with you Johanne - my mind has to be in the right place before I seem to lose weight - so glad you are there now :)

Bren, I hope you're having a perfectly lovely time at the beach. I howled at the moon last night and thought of you and all my other FS buddies.

Heather, you have no idea how much I appreciate the hugs. I'm proud of you too. I was showing off some of your bike pictures the other night. It shows what hard work, dedication and right thought can do. Love you!

Tracy, I'm not sure what made the switch click on again but I'm sure glad it did. Hugs my friend and may we continue in the "switch ON" mode.
