Which was it Alice had to choose to be smaller instead of bigger - the "Drink me" or the "eat me" selection? If only it were that simple to get the scale to cooperate. Instead, it's one day at a time, one good decision at a time.
I hadn't blogged in a while because I was having a little pity party over something I did and didn't have control over - when I joined SP last July, I had the goal of completing my first half marathon.
I got down to a BMI of under 30 and was feeling pretty good.
However, with a bad cold that lasted 3 weeks around the time of the half marathon, and some other changes to my routine, I have since put on 25 lbs and had a hard time getting them to come back off. I was really discouraged!
But what's the alternative? To give up? Not in my vocabulary! ! !
The future will come, and I may as well keep on course to improve, not to fool myself into thinking this is where I have to be, because I INTEND to get rid of the excess and come to that "happy weight" where I can do the things I want to do, pain free (hopefully) and not feel deprived in order to maintain.
So with my regular Monday weigh in, the scale is back to Onederland today and there's "nothing to it but to do it..." Keep moving onward toward goal...
The next event to shoot for is homecoming in Chapel Hill when one of my dearest friends will be getting an alumni award. Got to get ready to wear something sexy. So got to keep moving and make good nutritious choices.
One decision at a time...
Persistence leads to results!
