Another beautiful Spring morning here in Minneapolis, even if it is still a little cold. How do I know already? Why, I have already been up and outside to smoke one of the few cigarettes that I allow myself each day. Yes, I still want to quit. No, it's not going to be easy. I am down to about 5 a day, but those 5 are going to be REALLY hard to give up. Wonder if that's why they call it an addiction? I see it as a battle I have yet to win, but I will.
My week has already been long, but productive. I am beginning to SEE myself in this job, and to understand the importance of what I will be doing. Being too heavy to be healthy is another hard habit to break, and that is not even beginning to break the surface of what being overweight will do to a person's mental and emotional health. How exciting to be a part of watching a brand new person emerge from the chains of fat! I understand it because I have lived it, I know the feelings, emotions, and often the true self loathing that goes along with it. However, I have also known the feeling of becoming a brand new me, when the weightloss goal is achieved, and how positively that affects every aspect of a woman's life. What a wonderful position I get to be in, to help another person, most often a woman, find her true self and become all that she was intended to be! I have to say that this particular program is an exceptional one, and one that obviously works, I have been on it for three days and have already lost 2.4 pounds. I always have a few to lose, and what better way to understand this, than to try it? But, enough about all of this.
I am also quite excited to get back home, I miss my home, my husband, my rotten kitties and even my CrazyDog SO MUCH. Tomorrow, and it can't come soon enough.
I'll have to cut this short once again...so much to do, so little time. I hope that this is the best day ever for each of you. :)
