Another 100% day.

It feels great to be doing right, and doing good. I have no urges for sweets, and that is awesome.

Last night, we had cake sitting on the kitchen counter. I was eyeing it, and actually had room in my RDI for some. I even ended up opening the package, to measure off a little. Just a little.

Then I decided that it was a dumb move, and just put it away. I didn't think much of it, and it didn't keep calling me afterwards.

I like this kind of self control. That's what we all need to work on getting. Once we are there, the road ahead is golden.

Again today I feel motivated, and ready to move towards my goal. Sure, I gained almost a pound since yesterday, but knowing my RDI there is simply no way it can be anything but fluid changes.

Oh, and about that. My fluids after the surgery looks a LOT better. It's all coming down, nice and slow. I have a few "pocket" here and there. I can feel them bulging out. Especially one place right under the cut, and my inner thighs. But it's okay. It's nothing like what it was a few months ago.

This is of course great. The bad news in it is that if the fluids are going away, then that is not what is weighing me down. And of course, this makes it even more important that I do right on my food intake. I gotta keep control.

Today's another great day at work I think - Yesterday was the best in a long time. I really feel my stress levels coming down nicely. I just gotta stay on top of things, and I do much better. You can even see it in the length of my journaling. I feel like writing more than I did a week ago.

So, today I am thankful for:
- Focus.
- A good day at work yesterday, and I bet today too.
- Morning coffee.
- Wife.

Life is good! Enjoy it!

I still maintain that it's an addiction, just like alcohol for some...and for a real addict, indulging in even a small bite (or sip) is just not an option.

But on a happier note, you DO sound ever so much better these days! Good for you!

What great control with the cake. I need to be more like you :) I love how positive you always are.

Coachcj8, it can be SO hard resisting. It is, however, a habit a long way down the road. During the main part of my weight loss journey, I had absolutely no candy, chocolate or anything like that. Over a course of months I had - literally - one piece of hard candy. :) - These days, it's harder to resist, and I'm trying to get into that groove. Today was hard in particular. I "fixed" it with several sugar free, low cal, low carb bars. It worked wonders.
