“Set Yourself Free” by Ralph Marston"

---"There is no outside force holding you back. You are holding you back and you are blaming it on someone or something else. The way you are able to continue holding yourself back is by maintaining the illusion that you're a victim. Once you realize that illusion, you will naturally and easily move forward. In fact, it is easier to fulfill your best possibilities than it is to avoid them. So let go of the blame and watch the limitations drop away. Certainly there will always be challenges that hold you back. For each challenge provides you with a pathway through which you can move toward fulfillment. It is your very nature to accomplish. Lovingly accept your destiny, and allow that accomplishment to be manifest through you. Set yourself free to follow your purpose. Set yourself free to truly live."

VLCD 18 : 214.5 ( R1 P2)

So still 214.5 this morning. It's getting harder as the days go by. Yesterday I brought in one cellophane package of melba toast. I thought it would be good to keep the supply here at work instead of bringing 2 two pieces each morning. Well........that was a VERY bad idea. I kept them on my desk next to the phone and I lost track and almost subconsciously kept taking " a little more". By 4:30 they were all gone. The rest of the day I was completely on protocol.

So today, I have just two melba toast with me. I will have no more when I go home. It's funny that I'm willing to do all the other work staying on plan but will mess it up with stupid melba toast which doesn't even taste that great!

Hope to stay totally on plan today. I'll be off work tomorrow and all of next week because my kids have March Break holidays. The daily routine will be changed and I'll have more access to food. But, my mindset is ready for it, I think.


  1. Ugh. Well, lesson learned. How many days do you have left?

  2. Thanks for the comment! I'm so pleased to know that you're reading. I'm on day 18. Plan to go for the full 43 days and I skip every Sunday. Today's going much better so far. I've got to kick the old habits to the curb. I so want to see 199.
