I slept like a baby last night.  I think I was a little tense from my brother upsetting me the other day.  Besides that I’m feeling much better.  I woke up hungry as usual, but not nearly as strong as the night before.  I made my favorite oatmeal blueberry “pancakes” this morning and enjoyed a cup of coffee no cream.  J  There’s another one to add to my list of “I thought I’d never…”

I had a dream last night that I was back in school and goody bags were being handed out.  I was excited to get mine, but my excitement quickly diminished when I opened the bag up to find a lot of different types of beef sticks (Slim Jim type) and cheese sticks – cheddar.  Mind you, these are the things that I used to eat on Atkin’s or “low carb”.  Now I’m aware these are also what was causing my migraines, and GOD knows what else.


In my dream when I saw what was inside the bag it didn’t appeal to me at all.  I gave away all of my “goodies” and was perfectly fine with it.  The other interesting thing was that I didn’t care that I didn’t have any “treats” after giving it all away.  I think this was symbolic that my food addiction may be departing from my life.


My energy is still coming back, but I can tell the difference.  Today I did 30 minutes on the elliptical.  Tomorrow I will start my strength training again, onwards from there.  Yes, exercise on XMAS!!  My husband is right behind me making sure I find a way.  He’s been a great support to me in this process and without him I might not have made it as far as I have.  We’ve had some struggles along the way, but we have made it through just fine.  That’s another topic for another day – How not only I am being affected by my new lifestyles.


My New Year’s goal of being under 200 is looking REAL GOOD!
