Greatfull

Thank you again for all of your support and encouragement regarding yesterdays post. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this blog as a sounding board....you are all amazing. As I sat reading your comments and your blogs I felt inspired, I felt like I could do this.

So yesterday I made better choices, instead of ordering in with the inlaws I made a big spinach salad and they picked up chicken and buns. The chicken ended up being higher in points than I wanted but the store had run out of roast chickens. My father inlaw picked up the "fried" version so what did I do? I picked all the gross skin off and did the best I could. I am not going to beat myself up anymore...it doesn't help. Negative self talk is such a detriment to what I am trying to do. I am a smart, strong woman and there is nothing that I can't do if I put my mind to it and put the effort in....
