As I sat down to write this I realized I haven’t thought about my mood at all this week. I never felt depressed. I never felt manic. I can’t even say I had anxiety. I realized my mind allowed me to just be. What a wonderful thing to be able to say.

Another week where I was rather glutinous. I like to write at the library for several reasons, but most importantly it keeps me from over snacking. I pack my lunch and a couple of snacks. When I’m home I have too much of an opportunity to devour foods. I can snack at in our apartment, but even worse we live within easy walking distance of a Chinese restaurant, two donut shops, a couple of Mexican places, a poke bowl place and more. Hell, there a CVS pharmacy less than a block away and have you seen their snack aisles? Deadly.
I also didn’t get much exercise because I was very busy. How I lost weight I’ll never know.
I’m very frustrated. The reason I joined Weight Watchers was to avoid gastric bypass surgery. To have the surgery, there’s a requirement to first lose 10% of your body weight. I felt if I could lose 10%, why would I stop? I might as well keep going. I’m so frustrated with my weight lately, I’m considering the surgery again, but I keep reminding myself of the 10% rule. For now, it’s a wait and see what happens.
Once again I haven’t done any writing. I’ve read numerous books on writing and had lunch with a group of fellow writer’s. Both were helpful, but there’s a simple rule that writer’s must abide by, and that is that writers write. I feel the excitement in me. I’m at my in-laws for the holiday weekend, but first thing Tuesday morning I’ll be back at it and I can’t wait.
I’ve struggled with eating, I haven’t been writing, but my good mood overrides both of those setbacks. I give this week an A-.
