To be honest...

Saturday, October 15, 2011

I went over my calories by 33 calories today. I could have fudged my tracking and gotten more points for my team but I don't do that. My weight loss journey this time has been fueled by the fact that I am brutally honest with myself. I have been guilty in the past of saying, "Who's going to know anyway, the internet genie?" Without total honesty I will slip right back into my old habits, one tiny lie at a time. I'm the one I have to be accountable to. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks, when it's time to step on that scale, I'm the only one that knows the whole truth. Lying to myself by saying it's okay today, just one won't hurt, I'll start tomorrow will only set myself up for disappointment and resentment on weigh in day. If I overeat honestly, I feel better about myself and can move on in a healthy manner.

    Only YOU will know the Truth, so if you fudge those numbers it really is like sticking your head in the sand to avoid the truth... GREAT Job on being HONEST with YOU! You deserve it!

    We all have days when we go over both of my daughters have birthdays this month as do two very close friends and my son-in-law is coming into town at the end of the month. That means too much eating out. I just make the best selection I can depending on which restaurant we are at and track it all. Your awareness shows just how far you've come in your journey. Good for you! Tomorrow will be a better day!
