Do you ever become anxious to succeed?? I am so anxious right now its just crazy. I am so ready to get out of the 200 club. I see so many people leaving the club and I am just ready for my time to come up. I look back at last year when I was 281 at this time and I had just started working out, July 14th to be exact I will never forget that date, for that was when I saw 281 and I would have never guessed that I would be where I am today, right now, making plans for this week to lose more, eat better and more than ready to cross over the 200 mark into Onederland. I know I am at 228, the old me would be like oh that is so far away, but the new me, knows that this takes planning, motivation, encouragement and preparation. I am just so ready I can smell the victory and see the exits coming up. I am just ready, I am ready, I am ready. There's no stopping us now. We will all reach our goals here............Succeess is the only Option, Failure is not allowed, Team Work is Key!!! Jump around, jump around!!!!! Okay, I guess you can tell I am revved up right now, I am on a natural high, this thing called confidence will do that to you!!! Yes its like 10:54 pm.LOL

Okay today I went to the Weiner House, my daughter had a coupon for a free meal so I thought that would be dinner. I had decided on getting hamburger w/o mayo and use mustard instead. Okay I also got fries. Their prices were pretty good. The food was not. My fries were crunchy, and my burger had more bread than meat on it. I was so disappointed because here I thought I would get a nice juicy burger and it just killed my meal. I know I shouldn't always listen to my cravings they can be deceitful. Those fries were just ugh.........

Its crazy, I have a brother who wants to gain weight, however he has a nice build and he can eat anything and everything when he wants to. Cheeseburgers early in the morning and everything is fine. I have a sister who is really slim, never had to diet in her whole life, and yet in my moments of thickness, she always thought I looked better than her, and I at the moment wishing I was slim as she was. Its funny because now I wonder how will things be if I get as small as she is. That would be something else. I wonder how would she take it?? I know now that some of us have to work harder to keep the weight off than others. I know my metabolism has to have an extra push from me, and that according to my body's mechanics I have to do what I have to do to help it along with weight loss, maintenance, and all this other good stuff. Its weird that once being a part of the Clean plate club, my membership has been revoked, I can now just eat enough and turn away a meal without feeling bad about it. I am doing so much better its like learning me all over again, a new girl is coming out!!!

I used to ask myself why I was losing weight, I know now its health wise, however before I really don't know why I was trying, I do know I wasn't ready. I know I was not living up to my potential being over weight and there is a lot more I can do if I am at a healthy weight. I used to wonder what I was willing to do to get to a healthier weight, wonder why it would take so long, be discouraged/disappointed/afraid/defeated of the long process, mad at the world because it seems like the weight just came on so easily, however to lose it seems to take an eternity. Those were my thoughts when the weight seemed like it wasn't coming off fast enough. I used to want the fast solutions and the quick success, however time has changed me, and taking this journey one day at a time seems to be the best road ever, I am learning more about the process, and the mathematics of it all. Seems like I would lose 5 or 10 pounds then my lack of commitment or know it all attitude, seemed to have let 15-20 lbs come back without an understanding and then a carefree attitude, seems like I used to think I looked okay, but now I think I am looking better, ( don't want to get a big head) but I know with the more I lose the healthier I will be, (because of exercise) the more attractive I will be, the more confident I will be, the more I can do, the best ever I will be. I will just be more of me!!!! Less in weight but more Life of me!!
What is your "Reflection?"

Today I had to battle the old vs the new. She sure did try to get me. I sat in the waiting area for 3.5 hours while my car was being serviced and during that time I had a visit from the ol' girl. She kept asking me was I hungry. Here is the conversation in recap .......
281: Ooooohh look a snack machine!!!
228: Yea, I see. ( nonchalant)
281: Aren't you hungry???
281: I sure am, I could use a snack!!! Honey buns, M&M's, almond joys, oh my..........(doing the homer drool)
228: We can wait for something healthier, you know that stuff has too many calories and sugar for us. Plus I brought some water along.
281: *huff* Water....... ( mad at the world)
228: *smiling* in victory!!!!
Do you ever find yourself battling the old you with the new you sometimes? It may not be often but there will be a time when it comes. Be strong and stand your ground!!!!
