Day 2

Day two of my diet and the hunger is setting in. It's actually more about the sensation of losing weight than about hunger. Sometimes I confuse these. Today I took pleasure in the idea that as long as I feel slightly on edge hunger wise, I am losing weight. Instead of giving in and letting it control me, I have decided to just get used to it. The sensation usually decrease as my stomach gets used to consuming less. It's all psychological for me most of the time. My 21 yr. old son stays with me about two or three nights a week. We cook together a fair amount and I always try to have healthy foods on hand. Occasionally he goes shopping for his own food that he likes to eat. Yesterday was one of the days he shopped. I came home and the pantry was filled with snacks. The freezer was filled with frozen pizzas and jalapeno poppers. The refridgerator has things in it like chip dips and large containers of Arnold Palmer iced tea. This is going to be a real test for sure... God help me!
On staying focused... This is hard for me! I let distractions rule my life. I seek them out and give them precedence over everything. Today was different tho. I had one goal and that was to stay on track. I did and was greatly rewarded!
My inspirational quote for the day: "There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout: This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love. I am a whole complex package. Take me...or leave me. Accept me or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision. When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad-you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you." --Stacey Charter
