Okay so I have not recorded what I ate all week long basically. I was still trying to be good on Tuesday & Wednesday, but I never got around to recording it, and now I have forgotten what I should have entered. Thursday was my Friday, and we went out to dinner to celebrate, and I did not record that thinking I will get to to tomorrow.... Friday was my day off, too many t hings to do to and get done to work on excercise I have time on Saturday... Saturday we bought a smoker so that we could make all we can eat smoke salmon at home very very low calorie. Seemed like a good idea at the time... no time to record what I ate.. that left Easter Sunday with its big HUGE prime rib dinner and extra fattening deserts. Needless to say I am not looking forward to my wiegh in!
Moving backwards on my goal had to take down my "lost 10lbs" pic cause its no longer true.

Okay, I have been hitting it pretty hard this week. Some how having to take down my lost 10 lbs photo really bugged me! Then I got on the scale yesterday and I was at 190!! thats the lowest I have been since I got engaged in 11/2001. I'm still about 4lbs heavier than the trend line to reach my interim goal by the deadline. But Im encouraged anway, I look at it as 8 years of over eating erased.

Of course you are absolutely right. However this does not affect my determination I have been feeling my determination ebbing away for some weeks.
Baby steps are what is called for. Persistence and tenacity are what is called for. While I know this, acting on it is what is called for. Talk is cheap. My thought to action ratio has always been heavily in favor of thought over action.
So today's baby step was to get back on the treadmill and use it for the full 30 minutes, even if that meant setting it on a resistance level that guaranteed I wouldn't burn enough calories.
Tomorrow's baby step is to do it again.

Smit, sorry to have to say this, but you are so busted. I don't usually say that to any one in this community; however, I would like you to go back and reread your blogs. They are pretty much all saying the same thing.
What it really boils down to is making excuses for the bad choices. I really, really, really, want you to succeed, but I can't do it for you. I've been where you are now, many times. It's all about the choices YOU make whether good or bad and the consequences you must live with, good or bad.
I feel like you are at a major crossroads in this journey you're on. What are you going to do? Please don't get caught up in the all or nothing frame of mind. Pick something, anything, no matter how insignificant you may think it is, and change it into a good, healthy habit. Then pick another. It may be a food issue or a fitness issue. It doesn't matter. It's your choice.
From reading your past blogs, I know you have the head knowledge. Now, if you would just believe in your self, like I do, you can beat this thing and get healthy and past those same 10 pounds you've been working on.
Gook luck, and I'll be looking forward to your next blog.
