Honesty IS the Best Policy
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
It's what my parent's always taught me and while I am honest with other people, I find that it is difficult to be honest with myself. It may sound crazy, but in my head it is easy to say: 'oh, this little bit of this won't hurt.' Unfortunately, it isn't always just one little bit, it is usually three or four or more! So a goal for me this week is to be more honest with myself, my portion sizes and my choices.
Another goal I have set for myself this week is to be below 200 pounds for weigh-in Friday. I have been very lax about meeting the goals I set for myself and it sabotages my hard work, my healthy choices. And it is all deliberate. Why would I do this to myself? Well, I talked about that in a previous blog, but I still feel the answer is I doubt myself. I think I'm scared of succeeding. Is that crazy or what?!
If I succeed at weightloss, something I've struggled with my whole life, what will I do after that? What will I have to work towards? All I can say is that I am a work in progress. Reading blogs and posting my own blogs about my struggles is really helping me right now. So I hope that I can post a blog in a few days that says GOAL MET!
