On June 28, in anticipation of the new challenge, Four by the Fourth, I made a rash (though hopeful)statement that I would “work at this to the very best of my ability. I am NOT going to give in to any temptations that will surely be placed before me.” Then I went on to say, “If I lose that four pounds by the Fourth of July, plus just a wee little half pound also, I will reach my goal and will invite you all to my cyber celebration!!
Let's hope I don't show up here in 28 days with my tail between my legs!!
Well, here I am!!
Note the tail between the legs. And yes, I am howling loud and clear!! What did I do?? Why did I let this happen?? I didn’t lose at all, In fact, I gained. I am so ashamed of myself.
But I did learn one thing through all of this. It truly is a life long life style change and to not continue in the same way as I have for the past year, it can all be for naught!!
I am soon going to be active in another challenge and I won’t make any rash statements. But I WILL pay attention to what I am doing. No matter what I eat, it will find its way onto the tracker. I will only get on the scales once a week. For awhile there I was weighing every day and could so easily tell myself that “Oh, that pound or two gained yesterday is no big deal”. But it was a big deal!! Once a week, the scales will tell me where I am and I will listen!!
Wish me luck!!
