Nobody is going to believe this

I made it through a weekend without being completely derailed from my plan.

It is one of these superhero powers that I am developing.

I was successful, I believe, because of this article that Athena the Banded Warrior posted.

It hit very close to home- just replace drugs and alcohol with food.

One line that hit me, and I kept repeating this weekend: "The fact is, though, that the sufferer must be a willing participant in their own recovery. They must not pick up a drink or drug. Just don’t pick it up — that’s all."

Now I recognize that we have to eat, but I have to choose not to pick up the wrong foods.
It is my choice to stay on the path of healthy eating, to workout, to never again be at a weight that impedes the quality of my lifestyle.

It is all about choices.
The use of my own willpower.

It is kind of a scary thought.


  1. going to read that article in 3....2....1...

  2. Good job. Weekends are the worst for me. It's so much easier in the structure of the week to stay on track. I better go check out that article.

  3. I need some of your will power right now!!!

  4. Wow, that's awesome! I think everyone can agree weekends are the WORST. If I'm not at home doing nothing, I'm probably in some sort of social situation where the offerings are less than healthy. Good for you :)

  5. "I love it when a plan comes together"
    Awesome job!
