Just a few things....

Today I was invited to go out on San Francisco Bay to learn how to sail, by one of my coworkers.  we had an awesome time.  The wind, water and weather was PERFECT.  Picture later.

Confession I am not perfect.......yesterday work got very crazy and I was just done, so what did I do I craved a steak.  Not bad right?  Wrong.  I got to the restaurant and had two skinny margaritas, 4ozs of med filet with sautéed mushrooms and onions, garlic mash potatoes, and sautéed greens beens.  No desert....That I did have control over.  Every bite was amazing.  When I left I felt like a fat tick....and it only got worse.  I got home and crawled in the bed.  Now you ask how did I feel this morning?  I have to say, aside from feeling like a fat tick last night, I didn't feel bad at all this morning.  Why you ask?  Well I know I am not perfect and today is another day and I too can get through this.  If I allow this to get me down then I have lost the battle and I am not a loser.

I have read some posts today that have mentioned encouragement, reasons why we had surgery or lost weight, competition, failure, and health.  I guess this is the only thing I have to say about that.....My blogland family is a major support in my life and I do my best to give support and encouragement where I can.  My reason for surgery and my weight loss is very simple.....for me to be happy.  Now if me being happy comes from good health, or from my body looking the best it has in years and making me feel awesome about myself, then I am a very happy girl.  Easy? No its not.  Manageable? Yes very much so.  Controllable?  Oh yes!  Worth it?  Everyday of my skinny new life......
