I didn't have a good weekend. Ate way too much, especially sugary stuff! Started out with the graduation party on Friday night, then company for pizza Saturday night, and then I figured since I'd already eaten so badly, I might as well keep going on Sunday! UGH!!!! Probably gained the 3.2#'s back that I'd lost! emoticon

HOWEVER this was HIGHLY motivating to me this morning!

So my goals for the week:

Walk 3 miles daily emoticon today
Do T-Tapp 15 minutes daily emoticon today
Eat within ranges--good so far.
And do my biblical affirmations 20x daily emoticon [10x]

I will conquer by God's grace!

I've got about a 1 ft pile of clothes that I'm trying to fit into again--some of my tighter 4's and some 2's. I'm also trying those on throughout the week to see if I've made any progress. Here's to a week full of DAILY VICTORIES!

Love you all! Susan
P.S. THANK YOU to everyone for your faithful support, notes, goodies, etc. Even if I don't respond personally, PLEASE know how much you're loved and appreciated! {{{{huge hugs}}}}

    But did you have FUN? That is what I wanted to hear about. It is just one bad weekend of eating. This week is a fresh new start! And I know you can do it!

    Ah yes . . . we've probably all been there and done that. What comes to mind is another way one might interpret the message Mark gives us in Chapter 6 (11): leave that place [any unwelcoming place, ie bad eating] and shake the dust off your feet . . . .

Be well, my friend!

  I understand the struggle! I almost gave in to my temptations on today but stuck in my calorie range and exercised hard! Just keep encouraging yourself and remember why your doing this. Your body is a temple so keep it fit! Your doing great emoticon

    We've all been there. I have been at a standstill losing and gaining the same 6 pounds for MONTHS. I get discouraged and eat like a fool, then I get serious again. So far I've been on the straight and narrow for about a month so I expect to have a loss the next time I weigh. I only weigh once a month because that works for me. I joined a challenge and we weighed weekly and my obsession with the scale worked against me, if fact from that point is when I began not being able to lose weight, so I had to do what works for me. I love your graphics! Hang in there!

    I had a tough weekend too. We were gone a lot so we ate out a lot; but it's a new week and I'm ready to get back on track. We can do this. emoticon

    We attended a family reunion last weekend and then a 50th wedding anniversary on top of that. It was out of town and we stayed at a motel without a fitness room...needless to say, I didn't get much exercise, and sampled too much good food; however, today is Monday and I'm back at home and back on track.

I have to agree with BAMAJAM--I wish I was having trouble fitting into 4's instead of 16's! I guess it's all relative, right?

    I love your visual aid about the difference between this week and next. The thing that makes the difference is not how many times we fall down but how many times we get back up. You are a warrior ... you can do this!

  Hey Susan...

When you blog about clothes, sizes 2 and 4----You need to celebrate-- and pray for those of us who wear the large sizes, 16 and upwards--- LOL

    Great attitude! It's the perfect way to overcome a not-so-good weekend. Usually I feel bad and guilty and my weekend wasn't all that great either but reading this already made me feel better and start a fresh week with a clear mind. Good luck!
