Day 33 Another good day and question of the week.
Today was great. I feel pumped since I lost weight this week! I texted a few friends and committed to them that I would stick to my food plan today and I did! I did not go over my calories. Woohoo! I went to my regular OA meeting, which was great and then I ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill at the gym. Leaving the gym at 9 pm I had 600 calories I could still eat, so I choose to get a mango pineapple smoothie from McDonalds.
That brings to mind a question I have been asking myself - how do you handle someone who is obviously obese and having health consequences but chooses not to change? I know with an alcoholic or addict I would never go get them alcohol or drugs, so for a food addict - do I not go get them ice cream??? Sounds sensible to me. Being a recovered addict I know I would find it hard to live with someone who is using. It's the same with food. It is hard watching someone slowly destroy themselves. But I have learned after 20 years of being in recovery that you can't help someone who doesn't want help - no matter what their issue is. That is one thing I know for sure! Well enough on that subject.
I have had a busy but productive day. I made my OA meeting, got a chip for 30 days of abstinence, ran 2.5 miles on the treadmill and was under my calorie goal. Sounds like a good day to me. I hope you all had a good day as well.
Would love some feedback on my question. Thanks friends.
