Just like that little engine....

I'm starting to regain some control! Yesterday was not perfect, it was bunco night and I let bunco "snacks" be dinner (and probably too much dinner at that), but my food choices were better. Slowly I'm starting to feel just like the little blue engine. I think I can do this, I think I can do this! I think I can, I think I can!

Thank you, sweet blog friends, for the comments and emails about my last post. It's amazing to me how kind and supportive people that I've never "met" can be. Your comments and emails were so very comforting! It helps to know that people understand what it's like to have such a disasterous relationship with food. All of your posts, your successes and your setbacks, inspire me!

We are all chugging away together on this weight loss journey and pretty soon we'll be saying, "I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could!"


  1. You can do it! This week hasn't been good for me food-wise, either. Slip-ups aren't failure as long as you change things up for the better. :)

  2. We understand because we've all been there in the past or are currently there, struggling right alongside you.
    I just started blogging (my weight loss, anyway) and I'm amazed too how supportive people are.
    We can do this! One day at a time. :)

  3. Can I just tell you that I am proud of you? We will win day at a decision at a time. ((hugs))

  4. Yeah!! I'm so happy to hear that you are having a better day! Like Pam said, we are all really proud of you.

    This journey that we're all on is totally worth the struggle. Just grab ahold of that picture in your mind of yourself at the end of the road...I think we all have that mental picture of ourselves, where we're healthy, happy, confident, and content.

    Let's all get there together!

  5. Keep up your hard work!!! It's a daily struggle for me, but we CAN do this!!
