Reality Slap

Saturday, February 22, 2014

Just responded to a nice check in from _BABE_ and thought, wow...the timing couldn't have been better. You sparkfriends sure must have a sixth sense.

I haven't been consistent with anything, including weighing myself, and I got on that darned scale this morning and it yelled at me. UGH! I can not undo all my hard work! But past experience also tells me that beating myself up over it, or wallowing in self pity, or acceptance that it 'can't' or 'isn't meant to be' won't work either.

So though I'm pressed for time right now, I'm acknowledging the results of my poor choices, owning them, and making today a step forward to better choices.

I can do it. I look forward to posting some positive results after I get on that dastardly scale next Saturday morning.

Thanks, _BABE_ for the simple, but oh so well timed comment on my page. That's the boost I needed to keep me going!

Have a good week everyone!

    Hang in there....this is a tough time of year for us in the NE! Not making the best choices myself these days but continue to log in, set goals, not beat myself up and pray that spring comes early!

    You have come so far, it's ok to slip up and fall back a little bit. God knows that I've done it a time or two!! But you know what you need to do and I know that you will do it. Acknowledging that you have fallen off the wagon is the first step to climbing back on!
