Today I'm being totally honest

Thursday, November 07, 2013

Today I did something that I've avoided doing for the whole summer, I changed my weight on my tracker to indicate the 10 lbs I've gained. Now I feel totally transparent as well as honest. I'm back to "0". Now maybe I can work harder on sticking to a healthy eating plan and getting my 11 lbs back off again so that ticker moves once again. Kind of feels good to not be hiding. I like it.

    I agree with the others. Honesty is good for you. I also understand how you feel. It's not easy to admit that you're going the opposite direction of your intended goal. However, the honesty can be freeing, reduce stress and help to give you a more accurate picture of your overall health and habits.

I tend to be bad about not tracking my meals at all on days when I go off my eating plan. In a way, that isn't really being so honest with myself because I have no idea how much damage I've done when I go off the eating plan (and no idea how much I need to do to make up for it). I'm trying to get better about tracking EVERYTHING I eat so that I (and my doctor when I visit) can have a more accurate picture of my health.

Thank you for your honest, and best of luck to you!

  I know how you feel my ticker has been going up instead of down. But I know I loss this weight before and surely I can again and you will too. emoticon emoticon

    I am proud of you for being honest with us and yourself. Facing truth is hard until you do it. Then comes the relief and the strength to move forward! You can take that weight off and more
