539 days


Monday, October 22, 2012

According to my points page, that's how many days I've been active on SP. I have to ask myself, why, in that amount of time, am I not at my goal?

Honesty hurts. I let opportunity slip through my fingers. Nobody is going to be perfect every day or even every week. The info is here. There is so much support. There are fun things to do and recipes to make. The responsibility lies on me.

My goal for today is to start a brand new goal chart. A great big one. If I follow my menu plan it will be emoticon of my streak. I've done my minumum exercise but will add more when my workout video arrives in the mail.

* I am aware of my trigger points
* With this 539 day thing to spur me on I have a renewed resolve to get to my goal
* Support is here for the asking. I must ask more often
* I discovered that even when I was going on maintainance til a challenge started it was more than I could handle at this point. I didn't practice moderation.

I am not beating myself up. I am facing reality so that I can move forward with grace. This is my Independence Day!

I CAN do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. Phillipians 4:13

    I hear ya. I have 400+ days and am still not at goal. I have even been within 4 pounds. I am 8 pounds from goal, and have been since I joined pretty much. I have weighed up to 4 lbs more than now too. So I joined the 5% challenge and hope to get there this time. I have looked at my year plus here as a way to have maintained tho!! Good luck to you and your renewed promises to yourself.
