WEEK 30 - ďAm I doing everything in my power to become healthier this week?Ē

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I read one of my teammateís blog (NEVADAPP) about her progress so far in the BLC22 and how this is the best round every for her and she ended her blog by pledging to doing everything in her power to become healthier this week. When I read that it hit me like a ton of bricks. I thought I was doing that but I was totally exposed emoticon. Kinda like I was found out emoticon. I realized that I am NOT doing everything in my power to become healthier. That is probably why I gained so much last week. I reverted back to my old habit of lying to myself. Oh that handful or two of chocolate covered almonds wonít hurt. I donít have to track THOSE calories. Iíve been so good so I deserve to let loose. Well I paid the price and totally let my team down.

That little or for me big statement was enough to snap me back into reality. I wished she would have written the blog earlier in the week but since I read it on Saturday my Sunday, Monday and Tuesday have been on plan and I have been doing EVERYTHING right emoticon. I havenít eaten 1 thing that I havenít tracked and that is HUGE for me. I even whipped out my camera and took pictures of my food and posted them in blogs Monday and Tuesday. I canít tell you how much that affected what I ate knowing that others would see. I could have just eaten it and not reported it BUT that would have been lying and thatís what lead me to gain 4.4lbs last week.

Iím thrilled to report that I lost 4lbs emoticon. Yep 4 whole pounds down from last week. This makes me mad to know that if had been doing everything in my power to become healthier that I would have hit the number on the scale by now. Iím totally in the groove and Iím ready for yet another great week and great loss next Wednesday. I will continue to do my photo food blog but I think that it will become redundant after a while since Iím a creature of habit. The weekend will be interesting to track. That is when I often to let loose a bit too much.

So Iím ending my blog pledging I, Leah, do pledge to do everything in my power to become healthier this week. Will you join me in taking the pledge emoticon
