Made my first goal!!!!!!

Thank you everyone on your advice on what I should do..I thought about it and decided to take Moniques advice..I am going to go ahead and stick it out! That way I know that I finished what I planned on doing. If I don't I am going to feel like I failed at something.
I have already failed at so much when it comes to my weight. I don't want to fail at this too! I committed to a month! So a month it will be! I only have a week and a half left..Really it is just a week and 2 days and that will fly by..By next weekend I will be counting the days!

I woke up this morning..Still feeling like CRAP!!! This throat thing I have is for the birds..I spend the entire weekend in bed or sleeping on the sofa. I just could NOT stay awake for the life of me!
As soon as I woke up for some reason I remembered my STRING..If any of you don't know what I am talking about. I have this cooking string that I cut way back in July and Marked with black marker. I did 2 goals. A while back I had posted a picture of progress that had been made..It was HUGE..

But I had not yet made it to my first goal..This morning for some reason it was the first thing I thought about. So I pulled it down. It hangs in my kitchen over my apron. Wouldn't you know..I am at my first goal!!!! It took long enough! But I am finally there! I am gonna have to go measure what that makes my waist measure at!?!?



This gives me even more reason to keep going for the next 9 days or whatever it is..
Maybe I have not gained..It is so hard to tell.It is such a mind game..You know??
I have had a lot of other thing going on in my life..Some other stuff that is more important than my weight.
So I have had my mind on other things. I have found myself drifting back to my old ways and not caring about what I eat..Jack will say..Just want Taco Bell and I say fine..I am getting the healthy taco bell. As healthy as you can get but a month ago I would not have gotten it..I am also got McDonald's Ice cream cones..I am starting the emotional eating again..I know when I do it..I do it when I don't feel good. Most people DON'T eat when they are sick.. I EAT!!!! But I am aware of it..So I am trying to correct it..
I also know that whatever is going on in my life I need to learn to take care of myself. So that is what I am going to do. Being sick is VERY hard on someone hat has MS..Right now is effecting my muscles so bad that I cannot lift my left arm..It feels like someone is stabbing a knife into my arm every time I move it. Same thing with my right leg..So I am a HUGE mess right now..I am home alone and it takes me about 20 minutes just to get to the bathroom..My husband has to work!!! This too shall pass...
