9-1/2 Days and still counting...

Just to make things clear I am not advertising FA in any way. I'm explaining my experiences in the program and my issues with Food only. I find it therapeutic to write down how I feel. Maybe this is a good way to inspire people to really "look" into what they are eating and why they eat the way they do. I don't know all I can say is:

I am a Food Addict. I am grateful for an abstinent day. I am happy there are people who are in the same boat as I am and are willing to speak with me. I am thankful to God for giving me strength. I pray to Him every day and give myself 1/2 hour of quiet time to reorganize my thoughts. It gives me a such a wonderful feeling of calmness. Preparing my 3 weighed and measured meals is so easy now. Easy to plan.

To feel less frantic during my busy day is a blessing! Oh, and being binge free helps out in the clothing department, too. My clothes are definitely looser than last week and the bloated look to my tummy has gone down. Cool beans!

Take care!

Back into the Food Addicts in Recovery Anonymous program

For extreme personal reasons, I decided to return to F.A.I.R.A. with a fresh new perspective. I hope and pray that I am successful and stay on plan, go to the meetings, and help others in return.

What do I eat daily?

Breakfast: 8oz. lowfat yogurt and 1 fruit or 6oz. of berries
Lunch: 4 oz. protein, 6oz. cooked vegetable, 6oz. of lettuce (or leafy greens), 1 T of dressing
Dinner: Same as lunch.

Wish me luck and your prayers! I will need them. :=)
