Turkey Day & Black Friday
Nov 27, 2009I made it through Thanksgiving fairly well. My last visit with the NUT, I was told to eat when I was at a 4 (on a scale of 1-10) and to stop when I got to a 7. I may have gone to an 8 BUT I maintained that I was much more aware of my eatting - in comparison to other years. I continue to assess (in my head-NOT out loud) how my family functions revolve around food. Last night I kept thinking that THIS IS IT! My life WILL be so very very different next Thanksgiving.
On top of that, I did my annual Black Friday shopping trip today. I was standing outside a store, waiting for it to open for an hour. It was cold so everything seemed a bit more miserable - but again, I found myself going back to the fact that next Black Friday my knees won't ache, my back won't hurt and I will feel so much better about myself!
I can't wait until Monday. I see the surgeon and will hopefully get a surgery date!
