I went to the Doctor for an annual physical 3/15/2010.  So I was given extra motivation for my diet.  It kind of hit home when he offered to give me something to suppress my appetite.  I told him he just didn't understand, it is not a bout appetite, it is about food. 

I was raised with food as the center of all good things.  Family get togethers, holiday celebrations, etc. all revolved around food.  If you want a night out it starts or ends with eating out.  So if you just want a little celebration you eat a big meal.

I have eaten a 1200 calorie a day diet for the past week and lost 7 pounds.  I am celebrating passing a 9 on the way down by buying myself a pair of earrings!  I am considering buying a pair that cost the same as the total amount lost.  This time $7, next time will be $17, etc.  Now that is a celebration without food!  I will go shopping and look at every pair of earrings in that price range to be found until I find just the right pair to celebrate. 

If I eat while there it will be with-in my 1200 calories for the day plan because I am hungry but not as part of the celebration.
