Well, who wouldn't enjoy the sight of lower numbers on the scale. As you climb out of bed so warm and cozy on these cool days -- if like me, it is one of the very first things you do. Step on the scale! No, I didn't say it was the 1st -- we all know what "that" is.
It seems that I have been on a yo-yo journey for the past 2 years, I'd start the month at 143 or 144 go up, go down, stay even -- but never seeming to get to those coveted numbers in the 130 range. And I'm not there yet.
As a faithful fan of "Biggest Loser" I watch these people go through their killer work-outs and know in my own heart that if "I" worked out like that the pounds would be rolling off me too. But how many of us have the strong constitution to perform miracles like that without being pushed and prodded? Not me. Not unless you go through some life-changing situation, and Thank the Lord, that has not been the case with me either. I guess my desire to get somewhat close to the weight I carried around up until I turned 50 has not been strong enough to really motivate me into doing what was necessary. Or perhaps I lie to myself, not seeing the real me when I glance into the mirror. Whatever the reason, the weight is mostly still with me, one day good, two days bad, then good for 3 or 4 days. Like I said, I'm a yo-yo!
But suddenly, and in December to top it off -- my weight has finally started being consistent -- probably because I am. It didn't happen by accident, and those are the things you have to remember as you mindlessly nibble on yet another cookie!
Happy December --
