164.0 lbs this morning. Moving in the right direction.
Water, it seems, will be my biggest asset. The more water I drink, the better things are. I need to remember this. There is a downside and that is the more water I drink, the more water my body wants. Without it I feel terrible.
One of the things that water will do for me is help me feel full. I am eating the same that I have on this whole (last) journey. Now it doesn't seem like enough. I am physically hungry much of the time and then also emotionally hungry after awhile.
In some ways it makes no sense...I am smaller, I should need less.
In some ways it makes more sense...I have less "reserve" to pull from so I am more hungry. I am more active, so I am more hungry. I have also read some about the body fighting to go back to "normal"...that the body will resist losing the fat reserves.
So this is a good time to remind myself that I am NOT my body. I am my spirit that, right now, has a body.
My spirit is in charge. My spirit doesn't lie or deceive. My spirit is worth the fight. My spirit will help me WITH the fight.
Make good choices. That is what I need to do today and every day.
I got this. Game On!!
