Time to Get Real

Monday, April 02, 2012

Okay. Confession time. I've been making very feeble attempts to lose weight. I have been logging my intake, avoiding most sugars, drinking primarily water and black decaf coffee, and exercising. However, I have NOT cut back calories. I've deluded myself with the aforementioned feeble attempts, trying to convince myself that I'm on a weight loss plan, but knowing in my heart of hearts that I'm not.

SOOOO, beginning right now, I'm committing to you, my SP friends, that that is all going to change. No more pancakes on Saturday morning at the local diner - even if they are buckwheat and I use sugar-free syrup. No more pizza - even if it is vegetarian. No more chips - even if I know I'll be burning an equal amount of calories at the next workout. No more bread in restaurants - even if it is hot and fresh from the oven. (Okay, that one isn't a rationalization. I just love fresh hot bread!) Oh, those little devilish white lies I fool myself with! No more!

Thank you for your encouragement. Knowing that I've made this commitment will help hold me accountable.

Stand by me! (I know you will~)

    O K friend, I hear you. You know I will support you and I think you will do this to be healthy. You don't look like you need to lose weight so I'm guessing you just want to be healthier. You are already in a great exercise habit, so I think you will have no problem. emoticon
