Holidays and Events Are Making Me Fat!!! HELP!!!

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Thank goodness the holidays are over!!! Between the holiday dinners, parties and funeral luncheons my weight is slowly creeping back. One of my friends commented that she had lost weight, after congratulating her on her weight loss, I responded with "No you didn't because I found it! I know just where it went!" We laughed about it together, but what she didn't realize was that secretly I was upset with myself for putting the weight I had worked so hard to get rid of back on. I know in my head that weight fluctuations happen, but, try telling that to my heart.

The only way I'm going to lose this weight is to actually set positive short term goals instead of just long term goals. So here it goes:

1. Join and complete the January 4 week Challenge
2. Find a gym I actually like (the one I go to has tv's on instead of music...I like music better because it motivates me to keep moving)
3. Even though I track everything I eat in the SP Nutrition Tracker, I will sneak in some fattening and unhealthy snacks because I see my husband eating them. I have to start being more accountable for my own actions.
4. Stop taking the "small" weight losses for granted!!! Start rewarding myself for reaching even them.

That's enough to at least get me started on the right track. Hope 2013 will be blessed with new found hope and with the confidence that "I CAN DO THIS!!!"

Good luck everyone!!! Here's to you emoticon
