The Not-So-Little Engine That Could...

I can do this. I'm on day three and I can do this. I can handle being a "little" hungry. And when I am *really* hungry, I'll have a shake. And that will hold me over until I get really hungry again.

Giving in to these little bursts of "head hunger" is what got me here in the first place. If had the presence of mind to say "Its ok to be a little hungry, its starving that you have to worry about" then perhaps I wouldn't be six days away from weight-loss surgery.

In the infamous words of the tiny blue train from my favorite childhood book...

I think I can... I think I can... I think I can... I know I can... I KNOW I CAN!!


  1. Hi! I found your blog through LBT. There is a great band blogging community that offers a lot of support. If you don't mind I'll put a link on my blog so you can get more followers.
    The shakes are the worst part:( Good luck!

  2. That would be wonderful, Linda! Thanks!
