Good morning all.
Looks like another great day here in Maine.
I slept in a bit, I know my body needs it because I have a natural internal alarm clock…always have. Up by 6AM at the latest. This morning though I woke at 9:30!! Holy cow! It was a good thing the kids are on school vacation this week. I however do feel a twinge better this morning. No doubt that extra shut eye has helped.
These past few nights I have been having dreams related to weight loss surgery! Crazy! The other night I dreamt I was at goal. What a feeling! Last night I dreamt something related to it as well…it is fading a bit now but it had to do about being in the hospital and it was all good. I did not have any dreams before…even when I had my actual surgery date. In some ways I feel more at ease with the whole idea. It is weird.
Being on weight watchers right now is a very good thing for me for a multitude of reasons. I have transitioned over to the SFT which gets me back to making proper choices. Eating fruits and vegetables, lean protein and fat free dairy. The biggest difference after surgery will be my protein. I am so used to focusing on veggies first but with a limited amount of food I will be able to eat the protein MUST come first….forever.
Because for a short time after canceling my surgery I spiraled for a bit. I need to work my way back. I know I can do it.
I had been drinking soda…already given it up, no biggie there for me.
I had a beer now and again with the Hubs…stopped, all done.
I used a straw…this by far is the hardest for me, but have stopped.
I had been eating out at fast food….this one is still a work in progress BUT focusing on SFT will help immensely here.
I have been drinking fluids with my meals…working on this one.
I bought and had enjoyed gum….no more. I really was not a big gum chewer anyway so we are good here.
I have been guzzling my water….oh this is so bad and I am working on slowing down and sipping all day.
I have stopped paying attention to eating slow…with three kids in the house this is also so hard but I am more aware and working on this again.
I stopped my pre-surgery exercises… I am getting back in the routine of them.
I am ever so slowly working this and I know I will do it. I am doing it!
I will be that person... A healthier version of me.
I will be filling out my victory list daily. Thank you Holly!!
As my blog title states… I Am Succeeding!
How was your weekend? Did you do anything exciting?
Until next time…
