Wow - my 400th post. I guess I'd better make it a good one.
Just to update on my dieting status. I'm still holding strong. Today is day 6, and as of this morning I have lost 5 pounds. At the moment I feel like I'm going to throw up, but that's because I skipped my morning snack after working out and now my blood sugar is too low. I just had some cottage cheese and sunflower seeds, so hopefully that will kick in soon.
Yesterday I made Andrew some cookies. They were sitting out on the counter cooling, and I about to start making dinner - turkey parmesan. Those cookies looked SO good, all gooey and warm and chocolatey. I went over to the pan to move the cookies out of my sight to minimize the temptation. When I started picking them up to put them in a baggie, I wanted to eat one SO bad. I was shaking. And - I know this is pathetic, but it's true - I actually started to cry. Not like tears streaming down my face or uncontrollable sobbing, but I had to swallow a big lump in my throat and blink several times. That's how BADLY I wanted to eat a cookie. But I proved to myself that I AM STRONGER THAN MY DESIRE FOR FOOD. And I feel really good about that.
