So Friday night was a big night for me in that I made a decision I have NEVER made before.
I've been working my butt off at work and I have been watching the pounds creep back because I've been careless about my health. I've justified all my bad choices as being okay because I've been so busy with my job and being newly married.
Well my husband and I have started the 17 Day Diet again to get back on track and reset our lifestyle. I've been going to the gym every day, planning my meals, and I even stayed on track during a lunch meeting with a sales rep. I've been doing really well because I WANT THIS!
Well Friday night I got home and my husband wasn't there yet so I changed into my gym clothes and took care of the dog while I waited for him so we could go to the gym together. It got to be 6:30 or so and he still wasn't home yet so I made some yogurt dip and some carrot sticks and I tried to call him but I didn't an answer.
Around 6:45 he called and wanted to know if I wanted to meet him and my FIL at my favorite pub. This place has the best food and when I sit at the bar the bartender will set my favorite pint down in front of me without asking.
Of course I wanted to go. Ive had a rough week at work and I could have justified "giving myself a break", but I sat there and thought about it and told him no because " I would be too tempted to stray off track after a streak of doing so well."
So that's it. It wasn't a huge breakthrough in perspective of say, losing 100 lbs, but for me it was. I have never had the strength to make a choice like that in the past which is why this was such a big deal for me. It's also a telltale sign that this is the last time I start over.
