How many re-starts until I get it right?
Wednesday, July 04, 2012
I am feeling very discouraged because I keep saying I'm going to lose this weight and instead of the scale going down- it goes up. I know what I'm doing wrong. I keep telling myself that I'm trying but I'm not. I can come up with every excuse why I don't have time to workout and eat right. They are all excuses that I can definitely over come.
I am shaving my head in 10 days to support the St. Baldricks foundation and raise money for childhood cancer. (my goal was to raise $250 and as of last night I'm up to $601!!!) I had wanted to lose 10 lbs by the shave and instead I've put on a couple.
But the wake up call came today. When I got up this morning and put on my nice comfy, *fat* jeans, they were tight. My fat jeans were tight. What a horrible disgusting feeling.
I just finished off the last Diet Soda in the house. There will not be anymore purchased. I have given up soda before and did fine. I don't even remember why or how I started drinking it again. But, I gave it up for several months with no problem. I tell my kids they shouldn't drink soda yet I sit here and drink. They even look at me and say "Mommy. I thought you said soda was bad for you?" What kind of a message am I teaching my children? No more!
Today is Independence Day- MY independence from Diet Soda and excuses!
No more excuses!
