Still the Beginning (08 January 2008)

It’s been a crazy week, life-wise, and I haven’t had a lot of time to do much of anything, really.

I don’t have a food plan; I don’t even have a sponsor yet.

On the other hand, I do have smoke-free lungs. That was my big accomplishment this week, quitting smoking. I managed to do it last year, too, but it just didn’t “stick.”

I’ve also prayed and meditated every day without exception. This is probably for me, just as big an accomplishment as quitting smoking. Seven days. In a row. I know that this is key for me to move forward with my life. When I lose my sense of center and connection with God, I am all over the place, and an utter mess. This is something I have to keep up with for so many more reasons than JUST getting a handle on my eating.

One small step that I’ve noticed is that I’ve not overeaten at a single meal this week, either. Now, this comes with a caveat: by quitting smoking, I was constantly running bit-o-honeys, mints, and sunflower seeds to my mouth. That’s certainly compulsive, and I acknowledge that. But for meals, I didn’t go back for seconds, and I somehow left a little on my plate each time.

It’s not much, but it’s a start.

Hopefully by next week, I’ll get more of this livejournal stuff set up.
