I was upset with my weigh-in last night. I gained a pound. I had expected to lose 2 or 3. No, 1 pound isn't very much but I've been good with my plan and even deprived myself at a restaurant the other night. WHY did I bother to do all that ~ for nothing? Yes, I've been feeling very sorry for myself. I had finished my calories for the day and, while watching late night TV, I still had a bowl of ice cream and a bagel with butter because 'what difference did it make'? I didn't feel very good about it and, honestly, the bagel really didn't taste as good as I had thought it would.
Today, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I felt like quitting. After all. I've been sticking to the program the best I can ~ and all I've lost in over 3 weeks is 3 lbs. I can do THAT without changing anything or following ANY program. I was trying to decide whether to go swimming or not and I had pretty much decided against it because again, 'why bother'?
I had to go out to get some things and before I knew it, I found myself at the swimming pool. So, I went in but decided that I would only swim for 20 minutes. AN HOUR LATER, I felt great and realized that my body had decided for me. My body WANTS to be thin and healthy. Who am I to fight against that?
