I distinctly remember Weighing 232 pounds in college. Not too shabby a birthday present for myself I would say!!
I've been making a lot of better choices over the last few days. In doing so, I've been thinking about my friend- who has had the entire lower left side of his face removed due to cancer.
He has been on a feeding tube for the last eight months, has no lower jaw or soft palette on that side of his face anymore. Now, the cancer has returned, which means that he is never going to eat another meal in his life.
Keeping him in mind, it is made some of my choices significantly easier. So I don't think it's coincidence that I've lost a couple of pounds in the last few days by simply – not letting myself eat food I don't need.
We are going to go out and meet friends at a pub for my birthday tonight. And we are going to enjoy some food and drinks and friendship. And I am not going to overindulge. I'm going to enjoy friendship without over feeding myself.
