“Nothing external to you has any power over you.”

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love this quote. I really need to take it to heart. I struggle with being a victim when I don't need to. Nothing and NO ONE has power over me. Mean people suck, but that doesn't mean I should eat. If I do, I gave them power. The awesome smelling baked goods can be a pleasure to my nose, but not to my tongue. If I eat them, I give them power. Am I not more powerful than a cookie???? Of course I am. I am stronger than that. So far so good today. I am at the end of Day 3 for basically no carbs but veggies. I have to make it through to tomorrow night. Tomorrow night I get the motherload of carbs. lol I might freak out into euphoria. lol Its a good thing I am getting it Thursday night. I have to work Friday and I might hurt someone otherwise. :P

I want to cave and eat sugar, but I know its not the way to get things done. I don't have much time. I am basically 14 weeks out. I am praying for a miracle. I am just going to do my best. Nothing less is acceptable. Its going to be great to look back 14 weeks from now and go- WOW. I really busted my butt! Look how awesome I am. ;)

Okay, off to make some approved meals.
