Day 13: I knew it!!!!

Saturday, June 15, 2013

I'm down 3 pounds since I started.

I've learned that the scales don't move until I dump the 'refuse' (old habits & tendencies) from my brain.

I'm going to refer to my turning point as 'the chocolate moment' several days back when my brain kicked in and I walked away from the display of Russell Stover chocolates - ON SALE - at 50% off! That's when my brain created a new pathway . . . . to success!

Today, I'll probably feel like I was run over by a 18-wheeler (because of the massage). I've finished stretching and we're heading over to Costco for supplies, so I'll get in some good walking time.

I WILL NOT each a whole hot dog and bun!

But we're going to have a good day. Time for the hot tub.

Have a great day!!!

    LOVE that optimistic turtle.

Good job on the weight loss and love Costco too, but the crowds on Saturdays (for the samples!) are killer!

HUGS and smiles.

    Congratulations! Three pounds is awesome!
Maybe my problem is that I'm holding onto some old refuse.
Thanks for the hint.

    Hey Cat!
Great news! And don't you forget that fabulous moment when you're inner wise woman told you what to do: Changing to healthier habits can only make healthier changes!

    Yes, watch out for all of those samples at Costco... the calories add up! I try to just stay away from them. I am working on the old me/new me thing myself, and I think it helps a lot!

    Ah yes, the changing of the habits. Not unlike the 'changing of the guard'! Our old habits and ways of thinking and feeding ourselves is so ingrained, it is hard to change many years of doing things a certain way. Challenging but not impossible! Good on you for sticking to your plan and getting the walking in. Have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon

Love the kitty picture!! So cute emoticon

    Gotta love COSTCO. It is Saturday so watch out for all of those tasting stations they have set up all over the place. They can get to be a meal in themselves emoticon
