I fell off the wagon

Sunday, August 23, 2009

I posted this on a couple of my message boards, and then I thought I should put it on my log too. I gained two pounds this weekend! I completely fell off the wagon, drinking wine and having cheese and pizza. But I'm telling myself that was just a blip - I'm climbing back on the wagon IMMEDIATELY! And that's why I still feel like I'm succeeding in this weight loss struggle. In the past, I would think, "Well, I've screwed it up, it's impossible, I'm gonna eat what I want. It's my body!" But no more! I can do it! YES I CAN!!! (And thank you, President Obama, for that great slogan! It helped get you elected, and it's going to help me in my lifestyle choice to be healthy.)

    It's just a little bump in the road. You will do better now that you learned from this. I, too, like wine but can't do that stuff as it makes my blood sugar go higher and my meds less effective. Hoping you are doing alright. Just start fresh today.

    Hey, you just got off long enough to take a sight seeing trip.
    Now you know what's out there you will be just fine. Because what you have here is a lot better than anything that is over in the other pasture. Welcome back. emoticon Sandy

    YOULL NOTICE THAT WHEN YOU FALL OFF THE WAGON, IT STOPS TO SEE IF YOU WANT TO GET BACK ON OR NOT!! THE WAGON IS ALWAYS WAITING FOR YOU WHENEVER YOU GET READY TO GET BACK ON!! AFTER ALL WE ARE THE DRIVER OF OUR OWN WAGON!! YEE HAW!! YOU GET BACK UP THERE GIRL!! HAPPY TRAILS, TO YOU! emoticon

    We all slip.. noone is perfect
    the difference is you saw it and instead of pretending it didn't happen, you
    reacted and are being honest with yourself!!!!!!!
    there's nothing more important than that emoticon
    keep looking forward and there's nothing you can't do..

    "Persist

    The only way to fail is to give up. Whatever comes, whatever happens, keep going.

    Fix your eyes on the goal, and persist. Your vision, your commitment, and your actions will take you there.

    When you can make great big strides, make them. When you can take only small steps, take them.

    See every moment as the opportunity that it is. When the wind is at your back, keep going, and when the wind is blowing against you, keep going.

    Make good and effective use of whatever you encounter. Tap into the positive value that is always there.

    Know precisely where you wish to go and why. Keep going, and you are there."

    (Ralph Marston)

    As I said in the message board I'm so very proud of you for your attitude! You have come a long way since you started. The 2 pounds will come off in no time. Keep up the great work Linda, you rock.
