Day 16: They're Baaaaack!

The cravings are back.  Ugh.  This time, it was for cottage cheese.  I know, could it be any weirder?

My stress level climbed so high today that I questioned why I was doing this again.  Maybe all the feedback on how crazy I am to do this all  is true. I am so close to the end so I do not quite understand where all this weakness is coming from. Must keep going...only 5 more days.

There is quite a bit of change at work. I have a feeling that this added stress is the major monkey wrench in this challenge. I am coming up on another crossroad in my life and that is causing the bulk of my stress. There is the safe choice...and then there is "the leap out of a plane and hope the parachute works" choice. 

One of my favorite movies is called "Fools Rush In".   There is a scene where a homeless man tells Matthew Perry that he looks lost.  All he has to do is follow the signs.  The signs are everywhere.  I see the signs.  Everyday.  But still, I am frozen like a deer in headlights.  I need to make career move that will change my life as I know it. Or maybe not?  I will keep you posted.  Promise.
