Happy Day

An incredible thing happened yesterday. A milestone passed, if you will. I was at work, slinging lattes in true 'barista aficionado' fashion, when one of my regular customers commented that I looked noticeable thinner. Hooray! One small step for man, one giant leap for Tawny-kind! Someone who didn't have previous knowledge of m diet noticed and felt compelled to comment! So excited. NOW I feel like my hard work is paying off. When I said that, he said 'it is. its hard work and sacrfice.'

It IS sacrifice. And more than just the sacrifice of foods that are fun to eat or to treat yourself to. Its the sacrifice of time. Preparing meals beforehand in advance, planning everything I'm going to get before going to grocery store, getting up earlier so I can make sure I eat breakfast AND pack a lunch.  Its the sacrifice of convenience. Gone are the days of convincing my hunger pains to subside by simply reaching into the pastry case on my 10 minute break. No more running through the drive-thru 'real quick' while out running errands. Not even the simple luxury of going out to Chinese food with friends.

Marathon hike sessions to continue through the week.
