Confess the Mess and Move On

Sunday, July 22, 2012

No more hiding for me! That is, no more posting only my good days and when I've lost a few pounds. I realize not tracking my slip-ups is preventing me from
seeing the yo-yo trap I've fallen into.

I'll track my foods until I realize I've gone way over my caloric intake, then say forget it. From now on, everything is tracked good and bad.

I'm weighing in AND posting every Saturday whether I've lost, stayed the same, or gained.

My confession: Someone gave me a very large candy or cookie jar (whatever your choice), and I couldn't wait to fill it up.

I really thought I had the will power to limit my portions of the 10lb. bag of assorted Hershey nuggets which filled the jar to the brim.

I was kidding myself!

I consumed half the bag before finally coming to my senses and giving the rest away. I had to get those chocolates out of my house! I didn't realize how addictive those little goodies are...not to mention the calories!

Needless to say this cost me five pounds! And to think I was almost in onederland.

I wasn't going to post my weight until I lost the five...again, but decided it's time to confess the mess, and move on!

From now on I'm telling on myself. If I look at my failures, I know I'll get tired of the same old setbacks and get it together!
