I am sorry this is so late, I am just getting home.
I’m really tired so I’m just going to be brief.
Today was the second family dinner I had in a row.
After waking up sore this morning, I was worried about the food tonight at dinner.
What could I eat? Would I be tempted to eat bad food? What would I do?
Well, here I am, very full and many dishes and desserts later, and I’m not comfortable, but I am OK.
I still spent a night with my family, soreness or not, Ed or not. And that’s a win in itself.
And my life and recovery will pick up tomorrow, fullness and all.
Tomorrow I’m going to try to let myself really eat what I want. Maybe that way the temptation of over eating will not be as strong? Maybe not?
And if not, I will still continue on to my next dinner tomorrow and to my next one the day after that.
It’s the holidays…and I would like to believe everyone eats a little indulgently during the holidays.
Either way-two family dinners in a row would never have happened before recovery.
Here is to the third one tomorrow night.
