NROL - Week 10 - Thursday

Still hanging in there. I'm exhausted and everything I eat tastes horrible. I can't wait for this to be over and things can go back to normal. I know I shouldn't be so hard on myself, and just let my body do what it needs/wants but I am terrified of knocking myself off track, especially with Thanksgiving so close. If I fall off the wagon now, I will find every excuse in the book to eat crap for the rest of the year. I've worked too hard in the last ten weeks to screw that up.

I've really been craving Fig Newtons. I haven't had them in years. I looked up the nutritional information a few days ago and they definitely aren't something good to eat, calorie-wise. Even the fat free stuff is scary. But I didn't care. I walked up to the store with every intention of buying some Fig Newtons. I picked a small package off the shelf, then put it back and walked home. I'm quite proud of myself that even now, in this emotional upheaval, I was able to do that.

You are doing GREAT! I'm so proud of you! :o)

I'm not a big fig newton fan, although I do like the strawberry ones, but it's been forever since I've had any.

I hope you get to feeling better soon.

BTW, MIL didn't come over tonight. Yay! :oP
