|Did I ever share with you a pic of my|

looking at her) she is going to be
who she is, is okay with it, and no
one is going to tell her differently!
Yup. By the time I got home the evidence of my gluttony and impatience was strewn all over the passenger's seat. I actually took a picture of it, but didn't have the internal strength to post it within this blog. I'm ashamed of my behaviour, and what's worse...it didn't stop at the gas station. I went grocery shopping en route to my house for dinner items. Rule of thumb when emotionally eating....never go grocery shopping in this frame of mind. I was craving (and this is the part I request no judgement) white bread and Kraft Singles. I know! How gross is that?????? So what did I do? If you know me, you will say ....I bought white bread and Kraft Singles. I made love to each - independently and together - when I got home (figuratively speaking...in case you don't know me that well). At any rate, after it was all done with I started to feel pangs of guilt mixed with the sedation of my simple carb/ edible oil product combination. But you know what? I just said....it's okay. You know why? 'Cause it is.

Sorry about the pic. I loved it so much
I had to put it in here...
I am a firm believer (to the point of getting wellies as I type this) that it is okay to be less and do less than we think we should do. We need to shrug off our overinflated expectations of ourselves ('cause you know we impose more on ourselves than others do) and we need to let go of the desire for perfection. We need to be forgiving of ourselves and our behaviour. We never have to apologize to anyone for eating a entire box of Pop-Tarts (not that I would know anything about that) or for not working out or for looking like we do. We should never feel guilty or bad about our waist size or feel we "should" be doing something about it. I believe that once we are ready, we do do something about it.
That's all I got (except for a few more fake cheese slices in the fridge).
