A little sef-discipline goes a long way.....

Well, I am almost at a five pound loss. I haven't done much. No exercise yet. Just eating when I am hungry, stopping when I am full (and by full I don't mean pants button popping off and maiming someone across the roon), and recognizing when I am eating for survival or eating to placate my emotions. I will admit that in the past couple of days I haven't had any real tests (well, there was a pint of peanut butter cup ice cream in the freezer today and I did manage to stop myself at just a few spoonfuls) but I am hopeful. If you do something enough, it becomes a habit. I have always been good for the sprint but never a long distance runner. I am aiming to finish this race and run this course for the long haul. Well, it is 2:15 am in my corner of the universe. I bid you all adieu.....

Good for you! I think most of us are good "Sprinters" the long haul is the most challenging....hard to stay focused and keep it all up. Just focus on staying in the race one day at a time and before you know it - you'll be at the finish line. Keep up the great work - 5lbs is a great start!
