upon closer inspection....

...i let myself be too easily influenced by others when it comes to food. I should be stronger about choices like I was in the beginning and not be afraid of being called anal or picky. ...processed foods get me nowhere and don't fuel my body. empty crap will leave me empty. fleeting fun is fleeting. frickin' mini eggs. ...i shouldn't measure my success against others. so what if i don't have a flat stomach or muscular thighs. I never did but I've also NEVER been this small. I should be THANKFUL that I've worked this hard and gotten myself SOOO far. ...the leafs winning or the habs winning was irrelevant. the islanders showed us who's boss...and it wasn't tony danza. ...tracking keeps you honest, especially tracking your thoughts. a day without journaling what goes on in your head is just as bad as not keeping track of what you put in your body. we need to pay attention to everything that goes on in our worlds. ...being a kid is so important, even as an adult. Wear bunny ears, go to a parade, play video games....but letting a 5 year-old kick your ass in a race is key. Her celebration at the finish line is second to none.

i will never have a flat stomach either and my thighs, well, the cellulite seems to like me so there's not much else i can do... ;o)

i pondered wearing my PJ's to the grocery store on sunday - does that count as being like a kid? of course i didn't but next time i will... :o)

so true!

"...not be afraid of being called anal or picky." -- I struggle with this a lot. Even if someone doesn't SAY something, I sometimes just know that they're THINKING it. It annoys me when people feel they have to voice their opinions about other's eating habits/food choices!

I need to be more thankful of how far I've come too, and quit comparing. Thks for this.

Marie, I just wanted to say that I can completely relate to this:

"...i let myself be too easily influenced by others when it comes to food. I should be stronger about choices like I was in the beginning and not be afraid of being called anal or picky."

I always feel so embarrassed when I have to ask for things to be prepared in certain ways in restaurants, like I'm causing a lot of trouble for the server... but that's their job! And as for people I'm eating with, as long as it doesn't affect them, I shouldn't feel bad about choosing things that are going to make me healthier. It's my perogative; it's my body!

So hard to remember that one though... the fear of being judged is very high :(
