Hubby and I have always prided ourselves on being honest and having plenty of integrity. Recently, however, I believe I was being less than honest. If I can't be honest with my SP friends and teammates, I certainly can't be honest with myself (and vice versa)!

All this is to say that I finally corrected my weight tracker to reflect an accurate weight (as of last Sunday). I make a vow here and now to record my weight on a weekly basis and to honestly report my progress (or lack). Tried to find a cute graphic or cartoon to display here, but in all honesty (pun intended), there's nothing cute about what I'm promising! Just good old-fashioned honesty!!

Thanks for being there for me!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon it happens to about everyone of us I'm sure. Kind of like our drivers license use to be. You weighed that once & just hoping to get back to it. emoticon You will get there.

    Jeannie, I hear you. I had to do that too, recently. I didn't like it but I think the fact that seeing it on paper and for the whole world of Spark to see helps give me the motivation to get the weight off again. I don't think we can ever gert this weight of if we are not honest with ourselves and others. You are one great lady! I am proud to be your friend.

Hugs, Gail

    I love this, Jeannie! emoticon Honesty is one of the reasons why I haven't been on much lately. I promised myself to come back and start behaving and working my program on Nov 1. I lasted 1 day and haven't behaved since. I don't know when that is going to happen ~ so I'm embarrassed and ashamed. I'm not being 'dishonest' but I'm just not doing 'anything'. I definitely think you are on the right track. Keep up the great work! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sometimes it's hard to face those numbers on the scale, isn't it?It is for me as I usually dread the weekly weigh in. I join you in your commitment ... I've worked hard this time around with weight loss to keep it real as well. I support you and appreciate all you do! Let's get that scale moving down together! Love, Jackie

    Sorry I posted twice. I thought my first comment went missing in cyber space, but then it showed up posted. I tried to rewrite it so they're a little different. I also tried to remove it, but once emoticon its there you can't take it down. My computer just does what it wants to these days emoticon

    The Bible says "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free." I've also heard it said, "Acknowledge and move on." Coming to grips with reality is the first step towards recovery. Proud of you!! Good healthy blog!! emoticon emoticon

    Nice healthy blog!! Honesty is the best policy! It's so freeing, like throwing off the "weight that besets us" as Paul said in the Bible, and another Bible quote: "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." So proud of you and your new commitment! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good for you, Jeannie.

Confession time: I totally forget about my weight tracker. Now I'd better check it.

    Jeannie, God bless you! I can't see where you have been dishonest with your friends and your team unless we have been asking you about your weight and you lied about the answer. Nor is this being dishonest to yourself. You know how the scale is going. Mine has been going up so much since I had my stroke, that I would rather not record it. Those little numbers on the scale are really big enough for me to look at a couple times a week. I won't feel any better if I post them, in fact, I will feel worse, especially if they continue to go up no matter what I'm trying to do. If you are one hundred pounds up or a hundred pounds down, I'll still love you as much as I have grown to love you, my dear friend. (hugs)
