I was SOOO hungry yesterday. Grrr...I hate those days and I've had too many this week.

Slept in, bumped around the house, and walked to work from the train station for my exercise. I bought groceries on the way. I don't have a lot of money so I just got the basics - salad, veggies, and cottage cheese. Ok, I got some diet sodas to treat myself. ;)

I had an interesting conversation with a woman at the grocery store. She said I was skinny (she was quite heavy). She said I didn't need to drink diet soda. Why did I? I said that sugar and me do not get along. I said I had lost 70 pounds and she said that was her goal (she needs to lose a lot more than 70). At any rate, she made me feel good about all my hard work and how good I DO look. :)

Today was payday. I set aside a bunch of money for when I find a new apartment. I paid first and last month's rent when I moved in so I am not paying rent this month, but the new place will want first, last, and security. Carla from church is bringing a bunch of boxes to church on Saturday for me. Hopefully they will work so I don't have to buy any.

I'm looking forward to Bay To Breakers and dreading it at the same time. Carbing up and being off plan for two days is really going to mess up my weight loss. I'll gain a bunch and it will take a good two weeks of hard work to get back to where I was.

You don't need to drink diet soda because your thin? How does she think you got to be thin and stay that way? That really is a huge problem with chronic dieters. They think you only have to eat healthy WHILE you are losing weight, then you can eat what you like. I used to be in that camp, but thankfully I've wised up.

You are doing great Victoria. Keep up the good work. You do look fantastic!

She has learned how to diet wisely with her life in view. She does very well. B
