"Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change,
The courage to change the one I can,
And the wisdom to know its me!"
I just didn't know it would be so hard.
I have set out to make permanent changes, and I'm keen to get there, but I am realizing that it's all a journey, everyday is just part of the journey.
This week I'm only down 1.6 kg. I have been only eating 500 calories a day for three weeks now, along with taking drops - sometimes I wonder if they are working....I have lost 7.3 kgs. I expected more... I am impatient! I want to be able to tell you great things are happening as I have set about changing my life! What I am eating each day seems to be my project, instead of just what I do when I'm hungry. It DOES take a bit of planning - but doesn't need to be all consuming. I want it to just be part of the journey. I guess if what I eat is not upmost in my mind, I fear that I will forget, and mindlessly resume old habits.
I should be encouraged by the fact that I had to take 4 inches out of the waistband of my shorts to keep them from falling down!! I am not ready to buy new clothes yet. I quite like having my clothes become loose on me! I have also discovered I have bones!
The book does say "Pounds anbd Inches". Perhaps I am concentrating too much on the pounds part!
The grand poobah is 17.3 kg or 38 pounds less weight for my feet to carry around!!
