December 17 - In seeking to be Me, the soul has a grand job ahead of it: an enormous menu of beingness from which to choose. And that is what it is doing in this moment now. Meditations from "Conversations with God, Book 1" page 195
Yesterday's post has proven to be very cathartic. I felt lighter soon after finishing it. And then today, as I read the comments from all y'all, I felt so blessed to have received the word of love from each of you. Thank you so very much.
I was tagged by Findon to do the list of 5 things I like about Christmas. I will probably do that tomorrow night. I love the things I have read on some of your blogs. I love the way we are all spirited this time of year rather than the "spirits" we used to excess.
Talk about improvement.
Today was my last Diabetic Class and today we had menu planning and carb counting. Now all I have to do is to start living and eating according to plan. I'm a big meat eater and I'm limited to 3.5 oz of meat at any one meal. I'm sorry, but where in the HELL does one find a 3.5 Porterhouse. I'll try. A 3.5 oz porterhouse, fillet, spencer, ny strip, pork chop??????????????? Now that will be a challenge.
Tonight I am grateful for:
  • God, my Hihger Power
  • My Sobriety
  • Mamie, my OCD schnauzer
  • My Sponsor
  • No more Christmas pictures of me on floor - DRUNK.
  • All y'all

Y'all be pretty now, ya heah.

Maybe cutting those larger ones in half would work. I think that I've become used to eating less. And when I see plates groaning with food, it makes me wince.

I joined weight watchers a couple weeks ago and everything you eat is measured. ugh! But, I don't like the way I look or feel so... Diabetes runs in my family too. I quit the booze, drugs and the smokes, now I gotta get a grip on the food thing. One day at a time! I'm feelin' ya dog! jeNN

Maybe you can just cut it in half and save the rest for a snack.
