Been Too Long!

Well, mes amies.....all four of you! LOL. It's been way too long since i've posted. So much has happened in the last 5 months. The weight is still coming off. I have lost 52 pounds, and I have about another 40 to go. I'm not even a candidate for gastric bypass surgery anymore, and i'm very proud of that fact. The Eat Clean Diet, along with the recognition and acceptance that I am a compulsive overeater, has really changed my life. I still struggle with wanting foods that I simply cannot eat anymore, but I know that in time I will be free of that.

I have signed up to run a 10k and a half-marathon. The 10 k I want to run, and the half-marathon I just want to finish. I've joined a clinic that starts on May 19th, and I can't wait. Which in reading that last sentence, I realize that just those words alone are a miracle!! I would have never thought that I would even want to try to run, let alone finish a race. Miracles of miracles, I tell you!

Hannah also struggles with Eating Clean on a regular basis, but she is eating a whole lot better. Nicholas has no problems with it anymore, he eats anything. Craig is a Eat Clean GOD. He makes my oatmeal with blueberries on most days, and other days eggs are a big part of breakfast. We are just trying to figure out how to get rid of our love for cream in our coffee. That is one thing we both did not give up....but it's full of fat an calories, and is not even close to being allowed in any Cooler. LOL. The show is scheduled to air on June 6th and the episode highlights are available at www.channelcanada.com/Article2896.html

So glad to see you're back and great to hear that your clean eating is going well.

I saw the show and your husband is so supportive of you and your goals. That is wonderful.

Best wishes.
