Now that's better!

Yesterday was a day that was completely on program! That's more like it! Journaled everything, and felt really good at the end of the day. Right before I went to bed I had that cereal craving, but I overcome and just went to bed. My body already feels better.

The weather is warming up here in Tennessee, and I plan to get out and start walking this afternoon. I have got to start some sort of exercise to get this weight coming off. I think it will also keep my eating on track, too. I still haven't decided about joining the fitness center. I think I might try to just try walking and my DVD's first before I spend the money. But I really keep thinking about the pool this summer. It has a large outdoor pool that's almost like a recreation park. My kids love it, and we have so much fun when we go. But since I don't know what my working situation will be this summer (no job when school's out), I'm hesitant to make a decision.

I want to thank all my blogger friends for the encouragement and motivation you all give me. A lot of us are struggling, but it helps me tremendously to know that I'm not alone. It also helps me when I see a friend that is still trying despite the physical and emotional obstacles we face. I read a lot of blogs each day, even though I don't comment on them all. But they all help me so much. Like someone said the other day, in my world the days that I'm reading/writing blogs are the days I stay on track. Thank you!

I reconnected with another old friend last night, which was nice. I love being social and having friends again. I feel so much peace in my life right now, and one month ago I couldn't have imagined that it would be possible to feel this way so fast. Sure, I still have a lot of stress and obstacles to overcome. Sure, I'm broke as hell with three children. But I am happy with my life. I feel like I've made a great decision, and I am so optimistic about my future.
