There are no Deserts in Weight Loss

Sunday, April 15, 2012

In golf as in life and apparently in weight loss there is little connection between what you get and what you deserve. On Friday past I forgot to take my lunch so i walked over to the plaza planning to get a nutritious Subway sandwich. But I chose the door to the left and that was KFC and 2 pieces of fried chicken with fries. Then that night friends asked Watermellen and me out and it was a steak dinner with a large draft beer. Oh yes, and a piece of chocolate cake which I put entirely in my tracker even though Watermellen had a bite. That was instead of 9 holes of golf and it added up to 2680 calories for the day. One day of eating for delicion and not nutrition. Weigh in was Sunday and I feel like a thief as the scales tell me I am down a pound from last week. Sure hope that the scales don't catch up with me next week.

    That is okay - occasionally! I hope the scales stay kind to you next week. emoticon

    Trust the process. As long as you are embracing healthy habits, changes are happening within you. So you might have gone off your plan but I surmize that over the past week you made good choices and will continue to do so in the future. Best wishes for a successful wellness journey. emoticon

Honk if you love hubris

Sunday, March 18, 2012

After my weekly weigh in this morning I was getting ready to take WATERMELLEN and Charlie for a walk in the swamp. While waiting for my computer to boot up so I could boastfully put in my 2 pound weekly weight loss, I bent over to tie my shoe. I was feeling a bit big for my britches I must admit. The pants I was wearing were designed for my goal weight not my present weight. Bending over to tie my shoes put just enough pressure on my car keys to activate the car alarm. “Honk! Honk!” it went until I realized what had happened. Just a reminder from the car that I actually was a bit big for my britches and that the battle against weight is never won.

    LOL! I have had that happen with my keys just in my front pocket. The first time almost sent me into a panic trying to figure out what was wrong with my car. I think the little key thingies are more sensitive.

Is delicious
When (not to be
It belongs to
Anyone but

But persistence
and resistance
Not to mention
True consistence
Will result in
Pounds continuing
To flee!!
