WI day

It was time to face the music today. I knew it was going to be positive music as I have been on track. Happy to report that I am back on the downward trend. Now the issue will be STAYING THERE.

 213.8 this morning.    

I have taken my weight lower (by a few pounds) many times this year. For whatever reason I make some dumb choices and then *BOOM* it is all back. I get off the low sugar/low carb wagon and then the sugar monster attacks.  I let the bitch win and the cycle starts all over again. 

Two weeks in this cycle and I want this to be one that matters. I did it last year and lost 40 pounds but then regained 9 from excuses due to my brothers medical issues and hospitalization. 

Dropping forty pounds in a year with minimum exercise (more movement in daily activity but no set routine) is damn good. I can do better- there is NO REASON I shouldn't be able to lose at least 30 pounds this year. I was hard core the first part of last year then started slacking. I have been hard core the last three weeks. 

I am a forgetful gal.

 I like knowing I am sliding size 16 jeans on my ass. (down from size 22) I like knowing that the scale isn't showing me numbers in the 220's anymore last it has the beginning of this year. (started at 248.4 Jan 2013) I like the look of my jawline in the mirror now (double chin almost gone) 

I forget those positive feelings way to easily. I have tried to come up with ways to remind myself of that shiny happy feeling when I am not feeling it but I never remember. Hell, I have even considered some type of inner wrist tattoo but cannot decide on a good symbol that I want to have forever. 


  1. Keep positive and KEEP OFF too much sugar.

    You know it makes sense.

    Take Care

    All the best Jan

  2. And the longer you resist sugar and carbs the less they will call to you ... you can win this, trust me. People sometimes say to me "a little won't hurt" but I know better. Right now I have no desire for junk, but "a little" would change all that and start me craving junk again. Just not an option. Congrats on being back on track ... you got this!

  3. You're doing great! I started asking myself "Are the calories in this worth it? Really?" and that has helped keep the treats away and me on track. Keep on truckin'!

  4. Mmmmmmm butter balls ......
