This weekend has been hard--and now my birthday is in two days. We are going to bake a killer cake and I am really looking forward to it--and then we will give most of it away, because if I have cake in the house all week I will have an even less successful week this week Thani did last week! I wish I could go back in time to a month ago, and bottle some of that success, energy, and optimism. It's not the exercise--I am thrilled at how easy my fitbit is making tracking exercise points, and feeling a bit snooty about my current spark streak: 21 fitness days and counting! It's the foooood, man. I am having a harder time at big again, and in restaurants, and with family--oy, back to my old ways. At least my wonderful partner is still supportive. If only I didn't hate the mirror so much.

    If only we didn't have to eat- no matter how much we have to lose its all about fighting the food.
    But you sound like you are doing wonderful in so many ways- and your little boys are so beautiful- I have two sons but they are now 19 and 21- they were so much fun back then- not that they aren't fun now but its very different when they are all cute and snuggly- good luck- I know you will do better this week. emoticon

    Ups and downs, just like life. Each day is new and you are a strong woman. Just take small steps and you will your motivation back. I also had a bad eating weekend and I am up a few pounds. But, today is Monday and I will be back on track again. Enjoy making your cake with the boys and I am sure the neighbors will appreciate a piece or two!!! I am famous for doing that myself.

    Thanks for the spark goodie. Have a happy birthday!

    My birthday is next Saturday. Try eating the same things as everyone else in your family, but eating it really slowly. You will fill up faster, and end up eating less calories than you used to. emoticon

    Cheer up! Tomorrow is Monday- new day- new week! So you didn't have a perfect weekend- no big deal! Don't let it derail you. You will get your focus back! Have a great birthday week! You hate the mirror. I hate the camera! At least the mirror doesn't take a picture of you! Lol! emoticon
