Weight Watching

Nope, I'm not joining WW. On Sunday I decided Monday was D-Day, yup you guessed it, diet day. My diet is pretty simple, I am not allowed to eat sweets, period. That is my downfall. I must drink at least 32 ounces of water, not coffee laden water, but water. I have been floating lately, and I'm hungry!!!!!!!! I want to eat, but I'm holding off, using restraint, prayer and self-discipline.

It was especially hard when I was visiting Beulah P. in the hospital. Someone had just brought her a basket of candy . . . I mean Peppermint Patties, 3 Musketeers, Butterfingers and more. I didn't take one. I was good. I'm trying to eat healthier along the way. It's amazing to realize how much junk one person can eat. I have given up my nightly cake and ice cream, that should be good for 1-2 pounds per week right there. But I have to beware of substituting something just as bad.

You would think afte 3 days I would have lost 5 pounds, but when I put my suit on today, it felt tighter than last week when I wore it for a funeral. That is discouraging. But I'm not giving up. The boys had pizza tonight, and I had 1/8 of one piece, basically one bite. Instead I had a ham and red onion omelet made with egg whites - - umh - - yummy!

So keep me in prayer about this effort. I had a pounding headache yesterday, probably because I have not had sweets. I'm better today.
