My Motivation for Today

Monday, August 05, 2013

I am acknowledging that I eat better. I am not perfect. I did have popcorn, instead of veggies. But I have been cake free all week. I did have one piece of cake last week and the week before. But we had two birthdays. This is a lifestyle and in life there are birthdays and there should be cake.

I did not have two or three slices. I had one slice. When the cake was left over, I threw it out in the garbage. I did not trust myself to leave it in the freezer.

I am definitely thinner. I am not as thin as I want to be. I want a flatter stomach. That seems to be where most of my fat has settled. I want to get rid of the rest of my back fat.

(What how did I get back fat? I guess when you gain, it happens everywhere. So sad to say)

I am not gaining any more. I did gain soon after I lost all the weight. I am not losing quickly, but I am seeing small victories.

Every day is a challenge. But I am up to challenges.

    Like you said its a lifestyle. So there may be some fluctuations in weight but as long as we are continually striving to be healthier that's all that counts! Keep up the good work

    I think we'll be working on this our whole lives. I, for one, don't mind spending that much time thinking about mememememe. emoticon emoticon emoticon

good for you with the cake. My devil is ice cream and I'm working hard to have only ONE serving of ice cream a day. But boy - I THINK about more a lot.

Happy Friday

  Yay for small victories!! Good job on avoiding the cake and knowing your weaknesses! You are so right - you can't deprive yourself of cake forever, but you can make good choices! :)

SO PROUD OF YOU! :) emoticon

    Great blog for a Monday. I like the idea that "no one, no thing, no situation" can beat you!
