A December to Remember

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

I will be the first to admit that November was a complete disaster for me. My weight was all over the map. I started a thread called "Lose 5 Pounds in November....Really", but I did not follow my own plans. Frankly, I feel that I have been sabotaging my own efforts since Halloween. I have joked about it but deep down inside I felt hypocritical and I wondered if there is a viable reason why I am not taking myself to the next level. But here is the hard truth I have to face: There is no mystery as to why my weight is going up and not down. I have been eating more - self- inflicted fat injections - and exercising less, if at all. It is that simple. December is my month to turn things around. I want to enter 2010 with more of me to love, but less of me to hug. October and November are history. My goal for this month is to make it a December to remember.

    I was self-sabotaging all last week, saying it was the "holidays". As if that was my get-out-of-exercising-and-eating-ri

    Just wanted to say that I am also making December one to remember and I'm concentrating on the 25 days til Christmas w/ my kids, doing something special for each of them everyday. I've made a list of people I can do something nice for that is unexpected like neighbors, etc. and that will take my mind off of the bad stuff. I'm also hiped about getting a headstart to the January 1st people. You can do it too. You are worth it! Good luck in December, today is a new day. Blessings, Mary emoticon
