Surviving ... just!

OK so I am now almost 3 days into my Stop Drinking Farmers Union Iced Coffee Campaign :( Withdrawals are a b*tch! I have been headachey most of today and am experiencing trouble sleeping at night. Isn't it amazing the impact mere coffee, milk and sugar can have on your body.

I am surviving though so that's a bonus. I have had a couple of regular coffees to ease the headaches but no milky ones! A girl can't give up everything ;)

I have noticed that this week Portia is loosening up. That is not a bad thing but the food choices I have been making need to improve. The scale is still bouncing... it's kind of doing my head in still, so I am choosing not to dwell on it it too much.

I have officially gone down a size in clothing!! YAY! I have come to the realisation that my clothes were so tight and uncomfortable on me before surgery that I was squeezing myself into my clothes and that realistically I have actually lost 2 sizes!! I didn't take measurement until 2 weeks ago so I don't have any statistical data but I know it's true so that helps me along when the scale isn't my friend.

I am very interested to see what the scale says after a week without Iced Coffee. I am expecting a decent result but am scared to actually see the result - just incase it doesn't meet my expectations.

Life in general - I am feeling very overwhelmed at the moment. Not one thing in particular, but just a mish-mash of everything combined. I just think I need to take a step back and look at the big picture and not sweat the small stuff.

Apart from everything going on in my life - I am still reading (if not commenting) on all of your inspirational blogs and am taking mental notes of all your wonderful words of wisdom and experience!

  1. That's funny about clothes. I was up to a size 18. I was surprised when I tried on all of my capris a few weeks ago. I thought that they would be swimming on me. Well they were loose, but not too bad. In all reality I was shoved into an 18 and probably should have gone up a size. Now I'm shoved into a 14. I don't care! It's a good pain!
