Today I break my fast. At least that's what I'm telling myself. Today is also the day I separate myself from the security of internet access and by proxy - you.
I'd like to acknowledge a couple of people who are making this little journey of mine easier. First, a shout out to Wren, who taught me the value of being connected - thank you for the heads up on linking my blog and profile to my follower thingy. Secondly to Lola Rose, who, while she is far away, has helped me set a new goal for this month. Last but not least, I'd like to acknowledge the kind words of 100% To Die For, which have truly helped me connect with this community.
I've decided that for this month, I will keep my intake at 500 or less. If I have a binge day, then I will fast accordingly, depending on how bad the binge was! This weekend will be the first test of many and I anticipate more than one bumpy day/weekend/week... But the reward... that sweet, unctuous high! The blessed release and freedom I feel when I'm empty. 'Tis worth the work and then some.
My scales showed another loss this morning - 0.7kg. Not bad, not as much as I would have liked, but it's still going in the right direction. I'm also taking my runners to Melbourne with me in the hope that, despite the weather, I'll be able to sneak in an early morning run before the girls start on me. We shall see. I'll smile, play the games and dance the dance. For the time has come... I shall speak of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and Kings, of why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings, but I shall not speak of food.
Bless to all,
