I feel good this morning. It is because I have taken control back. I know that the days ahead won't be easy. Yesterday wasn't, but it will be worth it. Yesterday, images of foods that are currently off limits, danced in my head. I shut them down by reminding myself that I opted not to eat those things when I could on the 'binge' days, so I really didn't want them now either. The mind is a funny thing.
Once the weight starts dropping off, that will be its own reward and it will get easier. For now, I will remember how good the feeling of control is. I will think about how much better my body feels from just 24 hours ago. The floppiness is going away and that hot little body inside is emerging. OK...the smaller, more toned body is emerging. At any rate, I'm on my way. That is the important part.
