SparkPeople's Coach Nicole says:
You are more than a number. Don't let the scale decide how you feel about yourself.
Life is a challenge. Realize that and work, every day, to rise up and meet it.
Today was day. Yup I was a bit. But not a lot. So i'm happy about that. I was home this week on a vacation and I have to be honest I ate. I walked and walked...thank goodness or it would of been worse.....but I eat when i'm bored. So I ate my weight in food this week. But what did I take away from this week besides a few extra ounces?
I don't like being overweight, I don't like being lazy, I don't like being uncomfortable. So what am I going to do to change that???? well i'm going to begin with a plan for the week. I have a list going for meals this week, I will also do my best to give up mindless munching and start eating my three meals daily. I will continue with my exercise and using my Spark activity tracker. That does push me to move more and right now I need all the pushing I can get.
I have a plan, I have the motivation, I just need to put it all into action. Because we all know actions speak louder than words.
Truth: Last night we went to the Haunted Fire house, we do this each year and it has become tradition, although I hate to get dressed up to head out because nothing fits right, looks right, feels right, I do it because....well....it is tradition, this year I had to go through three pairs of pants before I found a pair of jeans that still fit....they were the stretchy kind so they hardly count as jeans.....three pairs. Well you know the tears were right there behind my eyes.....but truth: I did this to me. Nobody forced me to stop exercising and nobody held food to my face. So after that I knew it was time for a change.......a real change.
So here's to my "moment" in the closet...it opened my eyes to the real ME hiding behind sweats.
