Week 003 – Day 011
My night’s sleep, while plentiful, was broken up with my anxiety over my leg wraps. Oh yeah… did I mention I have issues with casts and things like that? I am that guy that cuts the cast off with 24 hours. Around 4AM I woke with a great amount of itchiness on my leg, inside the wraps where I cannot get to. I nearly cut the wraps off. Instead… I managed to go to my desk and get some work done, taking my mind off of it. That stated, at least I was not feeling hungry! lol. Maybe the leg thing is a blessing in disguise? Hmmmmm. Yesterday I got through the Church hours with ease, while bringing what I needed with me. Once again I found great uplifting in Him, and from those of my Church and Family that are truly supporting what I am doing in this program. Today I endeavor to walk more… and I am feeling quite good! This is a feeling I have not had in some time! I am finding myself excited to get to the scale, even though I realize that last week’s number was higher than what I should normally see. Another thing I mentioned in our class, which is an awesome group of people by the way. As I mentioned, find myself thinking of, and planning my return to food, planning what I may eat that is low on calorie, yet high on taste. The Waldon Farms ZERO calorie sauces we ordered were delivered and I will taste them today. We ordered Ranch dressing, and Honey BBQ sauces, plus their chocolate ice cream topping, which is surprisingly thick for a ZERO calorie treat. Of course I tried the chocolate sauce right out of the box! LOL. It isn’t bad, and has that diet after taste that fake sugars have. I guess it will do however. Zero calories with some favorable taste is great. I still find myself having issue even looking at food, wanting it as soon as I see it. TV ads are awful, and still pound upon me greatly in the little time we do watch TV. I also find myself longing to know how my fellow program mates are doing. This is a great journey to truly know oneself, and everyone in the program are amazing. I look forward to the day when we may have a combined participant weight loss number to show. That will be awesome.
