I have been eating HEALTHY for eighty (80) days now. I am so happy for myself. I am so pleased with myself and I am so overjoyed with myself.
My former provider told me I would never be able to do it. A harsh cronie told me the same thing. I am down 88 pounds and 30 of them since surgery date of June 27, 2012!!!!
Last night my supper was a small yam baked in the microwave with a teensy amount of brown sugar sprinkled on top with a teensy amount of margarine. I was FULL after eating the cooked yam.
Tonight, for three hours straight, I stood with plastic gloves on my hands and helped serve a mammoth amount of fruit punch, coffee and water to all these great people who showed up to support the MATT PEED BENEFIT. I stood watching countless of folks go through the serving line of BBQ pork loin sandwiches, wavy chips and a slop of vodka spiked baked beans.
I was told I could eat something and I did take two bites out of a pork loin sandwich. And I drank my fair share of non-spiked Jim Jones kool-aid too.
I went home happy.
Happy that I helped out and volunteered my Saturday night to a wonderful and worthy cause. And that I didn’t need to graze on the smorgasbord of treats like the old Amy would have done. And I walked to and from the event. And I’m one of those people who is still scared of the dark. And the bogeyman. It was very very very dark out when I walked home too.
I am slowly but surely coming out of my hermit ways. Baby steps….
And come on folks… IT HAS BEEN 80 DAYS since my actual journey has begun!!!!
