I'm also realizing how much emphasis I put on food and how large of a part it plays in my life. It affects my mood and my activities. Scary! Thinking about doing something fun with my kids or going on a date with Matt, and the only ideas I can think of are food destinations.
With 2 days down and 28 to go I know I have a long road ahead. But I am grateful for a great group of friends who are keeping me accountable, checking in with me, and most importantly, praying. I couldn't do it without them. Also, I'm so grateful that God sends bits of encouragement in other ways. Like the song lyrics I heard yesterday:
"Impossible is not a word, it's just a reason not to try"
