Do any of these apply to you?

This was posted on the Community Team by one of the members...I thought it was appropriate for all of us.

Our TOPS meeting was about excuses. And one of our talented members wrote a poem about excuses. And we were asked if we had ever used any of these and I could relate to a lot of these....how about you?
I know I am tired of excuses, I am here for a reason and I am WORTH the effort and so are YOU!!


"EXCUSES"
by: Sandy Izer

Starting on Monday I'll diet or die.
I'll eat celery and carrots instead of pie.
I should cut down my calories to 1000 or so.
Look out world I'm ready to go.
Eat balanced meals without snacks in between
Then soon I should not be afraid to be seen.
Starting on Monday I'll diet or die
But today I'll sneak in my last piece of pie.

Then Monday arrives bright shinny and new
I've bragged to my family how well I will do.
Breakfast, lunch and supper I've really given it a try.
Then in the evening some friends stop by.
Someone suggests pizza and soda and nuts
And all I can do is say if and, and but.
I'll tell them I'll eat, but a very small bit
But when I get started, I never do quit.

Then comes Tuesday with new determination
I'm invited to a party with lots of relations.
No use starting my diet today
Tonight at the party I'll just go astray.
Sure enough that night found lots of food on my tray
So I put off until tomorrow what I should have done today.

Wednesday now I feel a little more tubby
But I still think I should bake a cake for my hubby.
I wouldn't want him to suffer for my own lack of will power.
But even when I'm starting with the eggs and flour
I can hear myself say I'll get started tomorrow.

On Thursday I'm invited for supper to my mother-in-laws house
And I promised I'd eat like the smallest mouse.
But when I arrived to my dismay
There's the largest feast on display.
I ate everything in sight except the potato peelings
Because I was afraid I'd hurt her feelings.

Well Friday's here, the week almost all gone
No use starting on the weekend with everything going on.
There's groceries on Friday and Saturday's shopping
All those snacks in between would keep me hopping.

There'll be guest for lunch on Sunday
And besides it's only one day till Monday.
All this week I really did try
But starting on Monday I'll diet or die.


If you use any of these this week I challenge YOU to get rid of this way of thinking. Let's not put off till tomorrow what we should do today.

I do my 8 water and 3 or 4 teas a day. I still have to get up at least 3 times a night and I don't drink anything after 7pm going to bed at 10pm.
My calories stay abou the same as yours Kathy. That is more than I used to eat before joining Sparks. Hope it works.

Getter Done!

I drank a gallon of water yesterday and today. Haven't been tracking my food lately, just using the quick track on the start page.

May God abide in all of us and help us in our weight loss goals.

God bless our military personnel and bring them safely home to us.

May the sun be ever at your back and may God keep you uplifted.

This Challenge is to remind you to drink your water and track your food intake.

Report how much water you drank each day. emoticon

Report whether you tracked your food and stayed within calorie range each day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
