Not Losing Weight? DUH!

Saturday, February 04, 2012

I've been slogging around for months now. Lose 2 lbs, gain 3, lose 3, gain 2....back & forth with the same 2-3 lbs. And I've been whining about it....well it's time for a little truth...

I'm snacking too much, a few pretzels here, a bite of cake, late night glasses of wine. Time to quit whining & own up to the fact that I'm not trying hard enough. If I really want to lose these last 5lbs I need to own my behavior & show up!

My granddaughter is getting her bachelor's degree May 3. Would that be motivation enough? Yes, I think it is! emoticon

    Beverly, that is so much like I do -- and I also found it is the little things that add up! But I think you are right about the graduation/motivation -- having something like that to look forward to and a specific date helps me resist the temptations.

    Chewing gum helps me avoid snacking, as does brushing my teeth (if I'm home)

    now the next time you need to snack, grab the water and down it, drinking water will take some getting used to, but soon you will not feel like you have to be snacking. It works for me, I hope it will work for you. Good luck

    Great confession! Track everything and you will see it all add up.
Perfect motivation!! You can do it!
