If you weigh yourself weekly pick Friday as the weigh in day. Why ? Seeing how well you did during the week makes it easier to resist wrong choices or portion control temptations.
Remember if it is just one pound that you lost it is great because it is not a gain, & if it is not a lose then it is not a gain which is still great. So why would we want to over indulge even if there is no lose just because we saw no loss on Friday, then eat like crazy over the weekend. Then we weigh the following Friday & find a gain just because we were upset we did not have a lose the previous Friday, or we weigh in on a Friday & find only a pound lost then get upset with ourselves & say what's the use only a pound & over indulge then come the following Friday & another pound was added to the one pound gained from last weigh in. So my day to weigh in from now on is Friday because those 2 days are my weakest. Let's give it a try what do you say!!!!!!!!!

I got rid of boxes of one of too any things, I still have a lot to go through. I had a whole bag of videos & cd's Also found a lot of work out tapes I will be using those.

I am beginning to see what it is all about. I am finally getting it. I found Jensfit journey. Read everything you possibly can from the beginning. What an amazing journey she is on . What a beautiful transformation,because Jen believed & set GOALS for herself. You have to read her journey to see how she put it all together. I officially tonight began my journey . I was cheating on the exercise & had the nerve to say " why I am not getting any where, " I was not faithfully recording my food intake, cheating like mad. Oh sure I would be good one day ,cheat the next, & actually would think I could lose weight,what a joke I was. I even actually started to have the mind set to think I am 61 in my twilight years whats the use. No longer thanks to Jen's blogging.
Check out Jen's site what an amazing journey!!!!!
