Oh the Temptations of the Holidays..

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Today is the first day of my third week trying to be healthy and lose weight. I was doing well - i lost 2 lbs the first week and thought I was doing well the second week, then today, weigh-in day, I gained the 2 lbs back! I was good with working out, but not as good (at all) with water. I also spent all of Sunday night baking muffins and cookies for a work party, and ate (and ate, and ate) way more of them than I should have.

The thing is, I feel so awful after I eat all of that stuff, but even knowing that, here I sit. Wanting a cookie. Or chocolate.

Instead I should go hula hoop and look up an OA meeting. I feel like I should definitely go tomorrow...

    Don't despair. It's a long process unlearning old habit and replacing them with new ones. Some weeks you lose, some you gain. Just do your best at it every day. I have been at it for 5 years and I lost 90 pounds in the first 18 months. I still have to talk to myself about not reaching for that cookie or not eating because I am disappointed with the scale.

    But it can be done.
