Just wanted to let you all know about my amazing weigh-in during which I discovered I have GAINED 3.8 pounds in one week.
Yes, I am amazed that I find that amazing! The old me would have found that so discouraging that I might have crawled back into my hole and resumed my old lifestyle of unhealthy food choices.
But, I'm NOT going to do that....I'm moving on! Today is a new day, the beginning of another week and I'm getting back into the groove.
The fact that I feel so gross for eating all of that salty, fastfood last week inspires me. I used to live my life like that and felt like that all of the time and didn't know any different. But, now I've been SPARKED!!!!
Thank you one and all who have reached out and encouraged me over the past few days! The decorating is almost done, the little animals we help will get a financial boost, and I've learned a valuable lesson!
P.S. I posted a note to myself on my fridge reminding me of how my fast food/no exercise has made me feel...for future reference! This is my note:
Donít you just feel gross today? No amount of makeup can disguise how your skin looks and feels. No matter which clothes you put on you can't stop looking and feeling so bloated. And mentally, donít even go there!
Why, do you feel like this? Because for the past four or five days youíve abandoned the one plan that has been working so great for you. You ate two meals at Kentucky Fried Chicken, one Chinese food, one at Don Cherryís, plus a sundae and a smoothie from McDonalds. Oh, and donít forget the chips, doughnuts, sweets at Marie Joseeís house OR the cereal bars!!!
Also, you didnít eat your fruit or drink your 8 cups of water nor cook a meal at home! No wonder you feel so gross! The house is a mess and you are a messÖ.so what have you learnedÖ.follow the plan and plan for setbacks!
Donít let yourself fall off the bandwagon of healthy living just because you slipped up! Get out there today and walk those dogs, plan your supper and enjoy yourself.
Remember this is how you always felt and didnít know the difference!
P.S. I still love you!
