I had a really good week until last evening. My little Jordan was in his first Christmas program . . . the Kindergarteners at Conway Elementary School in Orlando. He was a Snowman in one sketch . . . otherwise just another face on the risers with 95 children. Of course he was the cutest and most talented . . . .!! Ha! I LOVE that kid. At any rate, my daughter invited us to dinner before the program and my job was to bring the family cake, which is a chocolate sheet cake with marshmellow icing. I planned to have a piece of cake. I didn't plan to eat a serious amount of frosting in the process. Bad bad bad. Then as the Broncos were clearing losing, last night following the frosting-cake escapade I raided the potato chips and ate a righteous amount of kettle-fried BBQ chips. They lost anyway. What was I thinking? Loathing!! Of course I didn't weigh today cause I just didn't want to face the music. I'm back on track today and will try to behave and weigh in on Monday. I hope for a two pound loss over my last weight. I like your idea that its in the water. That's better than my thought that I was just doing emotional eating. Tee-hee.

There must be something in the water because I have been struggling with the same issues. Much of my issue is caused by both being put on bed rest for an injury and by a terrible medication that causes water retention. I am off the medication and as of yesterday, I am now resuming my workouts!

I'm having an awful time getting back on track. I've been crazy off and on for at least six weeks. I've gained six pounds . . . up and down . . . up and down. I'm hoping to take just one day at a time. Yesterday was a good food day. Stayed within my calorie range, but still not exercising as right knee is barking at me. DRAT. Today will be another good day . . . It HAS to be!

I agree! The days when I don't get enough sleep, tend to be poor choice days!

I am finding that if I get enough sleep, I'm more likely to make good choices. Go figure!

Agree! Tracking helps me . . . even when I don't want to track something.

I am trying to eat more protein. Protein digests more slowly than other things and it makes me feel full longer!

I let go of what happened yesterday. It is now in the past and I can't do anything about it anyway. However, I can control what happens today. Every day, I get a new chance for a fresh start!

No matter how I feel, I shoot for 10 minutes of exercise per day. That 10 minutes usually turns into 30 then 60 then ??? I always start small and build from there.

Do you have a favorite mantra that you use to keep yourself motivated? Perhaps you have a suggestion for those team members who have hit a bump in the road on their journey to health. Instead of doing something competitive for our challenge this time, perhaps we can share our secrets for success. This challenge is for those who need to ask for help and for those who can support others with suggestions and empathy. Are you up to the challenge? Remember, success can start with just one baby step!
