Day 23 – this means only 1 week to go!  I find myself wondering what’s going to happen when it’s all over.  Half of me is going to miss the daily ritual of preparation, planning, being aware of everything I put in my mouth.  The other half of me is thinking yippppeeee I’m not going to have to worry about anything anymore!  Well, that’s not really true, I’m on a journey which I think is going to be a lifetime journey.  Although I’ll be happy to ‘let go’ of my strict daily planning etc, this is a food journey that I will be on for the rest of my life.

My geneology is such that I need to be aware of what and how much I put in my mouth forever.  Yes forever!  Seems like a long time to me!! I come from a family of women (in my mother’s family line) that are big and beautiful.  My mother was a size 8 when she was 18yo, size 18 when she was 29yo, and got up to a size 26 just before she passed away nearly 2 years ago at the age of 69 – seems way to young to die these days.  If I want to live a long and healthy life, I know I need to keep my food intake under control, and I need to commit to a lifetime of activity.  Having already lost 50kgs over the last 15 years or so, I know where I don’t want to sit on the weight barometer!

Today I picked up a book to help see me through my next phase when these 30 days are complete.  Like, where to from here? What’s next? What happens when it’s over?  Well I definitely think I need to get rid of my sugar addiction, so I found a book today while browsing in a bookshop (yes they have these in Sydney too!).

I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson

With my work in Sydney now complete, I’m pretty excited to have a day with my daughter in the city tomorrow, just shopping, lulling around, eating, taking in the sites, and maybe a Friday night bevi?  Oh wait, is that allowed??????
