I had a "moment" on Friday and it didn't really sink in until I told someone about the story today. Now it gives me goosebumps!
I went to a chiropractor on Friday evening with neck pain that was left over from Disneyland and I have never been to him so he had to do the whole "history" thing. I showed him my before picture (which I carry with me everywhere as my anchor) and he was amazed! His first question was "did you get bypass surgery?" My reply was "Nope it is all me!"
I have a ton of support, but those people can't be everywhere - they are not at work taking cookies out of my mouth, I have to make the choice to not eat them - they are not with me on the drive home when I pass 2 million fast food restaurants and don't drive thru and grab a snack - they are not there in the middle of the night when I could rummage through my kids candy stash but I resist (well they are there but they are asleep!). It is truly all me - Ultimately I have to make the choices and the decisions.
I have showed my before pic to countless people and that was the first time I had gotten that response - but I was so proud of my automatic answer - "It's all me!!!"
