Day 264 (ii)

Just a quick update to let you know that it's going well so far. Busy at work and ate well - packs for breakfast and lunch but added some fruit, but not unlimited fruit, which is the key and no naughty sweets or anything.

Am planning on eating my homemade tomato and carrot soup with 2 Ryvita crackerbreads for supper and maybe a very small salad with cottage cheese later if I need it. Should all come to less than 1000 calories which is good considering that I need to drop a few of the lbs I've lost. But it's the mental attitude I'm pleased with today. For whatever reason I've been feeling sluggish and defeatist recently but have felt motivated and active today. Thank God!

Mrs is right though - I need to work out a strategy to limit the damage when I next feel sluggish and unmotivated. Can't let myself slump as far next time as it just makes it harder to get back up.

Anyway, going to take the dog for a quick walk round the block (she'll be pleased it's not a run!) and then off to meet my old school mate for a drink. Thanks for all the support, much appreciated as ever.

Glad you're feeling better Lesley!
I think we all go through this. You're a shining example of what one should do when they fall off the wagon though.... get back on!

Sometimes I wonder if it is possible for me to ever live a 'normal' life, for me to reach my goal, and though I've heard it a million times, the quote on Canadian Carolyn's blog reminds me that: whether you think you can, or you think you can't... you're right!
