It just dawned on me that I am not wanting to SNEAK some sweets aboard, I have been flailing around like a beached whale, fighting, being told what to do and what not to eat! But I have been venting a LOT on this site and do you know what? I think that it has helped in ways I wasn't expecting!
I attended a church women's birthday dinner, 2 days after our town burned, and I TURNED DOWN a piece of CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH YUMMY LOOKING CARMEL ICING, and it didn't even hurt!! I just watched the others eat—ooh, and ahh—BUT I DID NOT FEEL LEFT OUT! I had made my choices, no sweet cakes that might send me too far up again! It was a CHOICE! Not a deprivation ! No one forcing me to watch my diet, and to lose weight, and now I am doing both! Amazing to ME! Thanks a LOT my FRIENDS!! Hugs, Pat Roth
