In a perfect world, I would have woke up this morning skinny and healthy. Unfortunately, that is not how it works. I did, however, wake up one gigantic step closer to meeting my goal. I made it though day one and that, for me, it a feat itself.
For years food has been a high priority in my life. At times, I might go as far as to say food has been a number one priority in my life. I wouldn't say I love food more than my family, but I have put it ahead of them by letting it control my life and put me at risk of a heart attack. I need to stop letting food control me and let it become what it is intended to me...something needed to survive.
As I start day two, I have come to the realization, that there are always going to be temptations. For instance, as I was driving to work this morning, I was behind a Krispe Kreme truck for the majority of my drive. Two days ago, I would have stopped and picked up a dozen and probably would have eaten more than half of them myself. Today, I did think about getting a dozen and then realized that my health and family are too important.
