If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

Yay Me!

I gotta tell ya, I've been pretty damn proud of myself this last week. I was over at my sister's house on Tuesday, and it was after dinner, when they ordered chinese and offered me some. Oooo man, did I want it. But I said "no thank you".

Wednesday around 9pm, I got really hungry. I snuffled through my kitchen, and instead of making a bowl of popcorn, or eating something decadent and meaty like I wanted, I ate a Praeventia bar for 100 calories and was totally satisfied.

Today I have stuck to my caloric budget, upping my veggie intake. And I feel good. I haven't been excercising because of this cold, so eating 1200ish calories is not a lot of food. Unless it's veggerific.

This was my lunch. Spaghetti squash with veggie sauce and a salad with balsamic dressing and light parmesan.

And this was my dinner. A Guiltless Gourmet California Wrap, with salad and balsamic. That is fat free plain yogurt on my wrap, instead of sour cream.

Hubby is watching football, so I'm a widow tonight. But I'm tired, so I may lay on my bed watching food network (am I a glutton for punishment or what??) until I fall asleep. Of course, that is AFTER reading all the blogs I follow! Need to catch up!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I still find it so hard to believe that anyone would be interested in what I have to say lol.

Great non scale victories, Chinese is always hard to say no too :-)

I used to be big time into the "food porn" channel. I can't handle it anymore. :)
