Steven Tyler said it...

If this week has taught me anything, it's that it's possible.  I've been on track - with diet and exercise.  I feel good.  I feel sane.

Of course, knowing that it's possible and doing it long term - well those are 2 very different things.

But tonight, when I came home and Marc and I went on what I jokingly referred to as "date night" - an 18 mile bike ride - 

And then we came home and ate some salmon, garlic roasted potatoes and veggies.

And I realized if I can make it through tomorrow I came off of my vacation and did what I needed to do.

I wish I could tell you that I lost weight, but because I'm still not ready and willing to weight myself - I don't know.  But I feel healthier.

Isn't that a weird conundrum?  What does food that is SO BAD for you taste SO GOOD, but when I eat HEALTHY food, I feel so much better everall??!!  Not just "mentally proud of myself" but I actually PHYSICALLY feel better.

So I think it's going to be alright.  We'll see how I manage through the weekend!

  1. Glad to see that your spirits are high. I read this article ( and it just highlights how stunningly successfully you've already been. Clinical dieticians consider 5% weight loss to be a good goal for the typical person, and even at that, a bunch of people can't sustain it for 5 years. You smashed through that level!
