LOVE this quote...

But before I post it...

In a deep moment of weakness, I was about to order Chinese food.  Well now I'm officially on vacay until Tuesday and I had the number pre-dialed on my phone with my order ready, I suddenly told myself, "NO!... NO!, Augustina."  I told myself, "This craving is only temporary, you will feel like crap once you're done eating it.  Remember, these exact decisions are the reason you're so unhappy in you're life.  The reason you're alone, feeling ugly, etc. etc."  After having that internal dialogue, I shut my phone off and closed out of the online menu.

I proceeded to eat a 350 calorie meal instead.

Then I watched the Oprah Season Finale and the Biggest Loser Finale... and let me tell you, both were tear-jerkers!  I was sooo proud of myself for not having ordered that Chinese food, especially after those inspirational shows.

That's how it's done, I guess.  At least, that's how I'm "getting it done".  Just thought I'd share that.

Nowww onto a serious quote... I'm not a feminist... just pro-female. hahaa

"Because women's work is never done and is underpaid or unpaid or boring or repetitious and we're the first to get fired and what we look like is more important than what we do and if we get raped it's our fault and if we get beaten we must have provoked it and if we raise our voices we're nagging bitches and if we enjoy sex we're nymphos and if we don't we're frigid and if we love women it's because we can't get a "real" man and if we ask our doctor too many questions we're neurotic and/or pushy and if we expect childcare we're selfish and if we stand up for our rights we're aggressive and "unfeminine" and if we don't we're typical weak females and if we want to get married we're out to trap a man and if we don't we're unnatural and because we still can't get an adequate safe contraceptive but men can walk on the moon and if we can't cope or don't want a pregnancy we're made to feel guilty about abortion and...for lots of other reasons we are part of the women's liberation movement." ~Author unknown, quoted in The Torch, 14 September 1987
