Patti's plate has had some pretty healthy choices on it this past week. I have also been very mindful of my portion control. I attribute my discipline to a "calmness" that I haven't had in a long, long time. When my mind and emotions are going in so many different directions, it is difficult to keep anything in balance, especially my appetite. When I hunger for answers, loyalty, security, happiness, etc., I feed that hunger with food. This last week that hunger has not been as ravenous as it's been in the past. I am not sure why, but I am pretty confident that I will figure it out. So, has the scale reflected my efforts of the last week? Well.... very slightly. However, I do have a small confession to make. I still have leftover Halloween candy! I will be getting it out of the house today.
