Happy Days and food
Sunday, June 20, 2010
Today is the 24th anniversary of my wedding. So much more has happened than that young woman could have imagined. I am not sure exactly what she would have done. Upon reflection the past couple of days I realize all the things I have been through I have been stronger than I would have ever thought possible. So i must be a strong lady. I can move forward and learn to make good food choices. That should be easy compared with life. Ha-ha.
The family picnic went well. I was trying to finish a shawl for my great aunt who was also celebrating her birthday. I did not get time to make my salad. But I was able to choose foods and count the carbs. I am pretty happy with my choices. I did eat one bite of cake from my daughter who did not want her cake. It was OK but, I really wanted to have that day be a success.
No one really paid attention to what I ate except my step mom. She has weight to lose too. I talked about my diabetes and what I am trying to do about it and my new found attempt to only eat when I am hungry. She said she should do that and asked me if I was actually full at that point. I checked again and said a confident yes. I felt a bit awkward because I am not used to being that kind of person. But, she was not at all bothered by it.
I even managed to skip the short cake festival I was invited to. I had to do some other things. I am making progress.
Happy Fathers day to all the fathers out there. I gotta go.
