When I think I am working hard, my body thinks it is hardly working! I admit, I eat things I really shouldn't one day a week, but I can't go the rest of my life without the things I love.
I got on the scale this morning expecting a surprise and boy did I get one! I gained three pounds. Three pounds! It has taken months for me to lose those three pounds and here they are again. Just like a bad penny, turning up when you least expect it! I'm not saying I do everything right, but I work my tail off when I eat a brownie or have ice cream. I have changed to the imitation ice cream and only eat a cup at a time and although that is so much better than I would have done last year, it is not good enough any more. I am changing my weight tracker to show what I have left to lose because I am sick of seeing the weight go up and down. I am starting to wonder what is wrong with me. I have been getting so many compliments, I guess I let it go to my head and started thinking that maybe I don't need to lose any more weight. But the point is, I WANT to lose more weight. I don't think I have set my goal weight too low. I'm only 5'4". So what if I am 60, that shouldn't make a difference. I know I can do this and I am going to keep trying. I am only writing this because I was startled this morning and I don't want it to go any further. So, instead of today being my "cheat" day, I am sticking with my fruits, vegetables and Lean Cuisine. I will not add any sweets until I get this weigh increase back under control.
It can be done, I WILL reach my goal!
