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.
