T Minus 65

Geez Louise! October was another wash. It's ridiculous! I'm up two pounds from where I started at the beginning of the month. I spoke with a co-worker last week who asked me how much I've lost. I lost a net of 20 pounds in 2011 and 10 pounds in 2012. My co-worker tried to cheer me up, "it's just a plateau." No, I'm sorry, too many people rely on that concept as an excuse. A true plateau is when you are doing all the right things and still don't see a loss.

I'm not losing because I'm not doing much at all that is right. My nutrition sucks. And even though I made a fitness plan, I haven't been consistent. I bought loads of freggies this week, just like I do every week. I have every intention to make good choices this week. Time will tell how well I do.

I'm hesitant to even write this because I don't want people to feel like I let them down or that they have to cheer me up. I've always only written these for myself, so I guess I'll treat this one no differently. So then, where was I? oh yeah, groveling in self pity, feeling like an idiot, wishing I knew when to say when to avoid overeating.

This week's Done Girl challenge includes some meditation. Maybe that will help me stay positive. Ugh!

    Thank you for your support on my blogs.

    You have traveled quite a bit lately. Anytime I travel, I gain weight. It's part of life. I wouldn't beat yourself up about it. I restarted my diet on October 1st. So this was technically my first month.. and we all know that the 1st month is usually a good month. I'm impressed by you b/c you have stuck to your program for quite some time and are still going very strong. I hope to stick with mine, like you have yours.

    I understand. I have been fighting with my weight for the past several weeks and it is because I am not doing everything I should be doing. Way to keep fighting!

    You have identified what is working and what is not for you. That's a step in the right direction. Wishing you success on your journey! emoticon emoticon

    The excuse people use too often, for me, is "maybe your body just thinks it should be this size."
