Whether you think you can or think you can't ... you're right

Wednesday, August 08, 2012

And this past weekend I proved Henry Ford true once again. In fact - I proved it twice this summer.

You see, when I went on vacation in June I made a vow that I would maintain my weight loss or do better. I was really serious about it, went prepared to log everything, and watched what was going on around me all the time to be sure I stayed within my allotted calorie/points limits. And I did! I came home half a pound lighter!

But this past weekend, when I knew I'd be visiting my son, who keeps a marginally stocked kitchen; when I knew I'd be driving about 18 total hours in 3 days; when I knew we would be eating out at festive restaurants or fast food stops - I just Knew I wouldn't be able to eat within my healthy range, wouldn't be able to stay on track and Would Gain Weight.

And I did. I gained a pound.

Ugh. Stoopid.

I really prepared myself to gain and I acted like a person who was intent upon gaining and by gum - I succeeded.

LOL Hope you are laughing at my goofiness - because I am. I set myself up for it and got what I asked for. And thank goodness I had the open mind required to see just exactly how silly that kind of behavior is. Because I was not imprisoned in a cage with tormentors who wanted me to over eat. I could have said "No - let's try this...." or "I think I'd rather go here for dinner...." I chose to go along and I got where I thought I'd get to.

ah well. Brick wall. Time to turn in another direction.

I also got my Visa bill and it has the Weight Watcher's charge on it. I really don't want to see that on my next Visa bill and there is one little weight loss square left on the weight tracking booklet. I think I will set a new goal to take off the 2 lbs needed to finish up the booklet and get off the payment plan at the same time. It's a bit of a challenge but I think I can do it.

How about you? Do you think you can? You're right.
