OK - I'm feeling desperate. Not only didn't I lose anything eating "sensibly" the past week -- I gained two more pounds. Time to revise my idea of what passes for "sensible". Like maybe not the "just a couple of bites won't hurt" and the "I've been really good all day, I deserve a (food) reward, or the "it's a special occasion". Rationalizations all!!!! If I was half as good at anything income-producing as I am at rationalizing, I would be a rich woman today. So I am tracking today and got back on the treadmill. Good. But the challenge for me, always, is consistency - Keeping on. One day at a time..., week by week.
On a brighter note:
Twenty-some years ago my parents bought an artificial Christmas tree. I was just appalled. What were they thinking?!! Was I really related to them?!!!
So.........I am now about the age they were at the time and today I put up MY first artificial tree. (;-) I do love the looks and smell of a fresh tree, and we live in the middle of Christmas Tree County, USA, so we can get a 7' tree for $20 or less. What finally got me down was the lights -- putting them on and taking them off each year was starting to feel like so much trouble I really didn't want a tree at all. So we bought one at Costco that is permanently covered with lights. I just had to do the fun part. It actually looks pretty real -- but smells like plastic. I'll need to bring some greens in for aroma management.
