Promises to Myself

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Tomorrow is Weight Watcher day and time to face the scale. Don't know exactly what to expect except that it will be a gain. How much, I don't know. I went off the deep end last week and gave in to some really crazy cravings. Don't dare go into what they were here, but that is behind me now. Hopefully, I got a hold on myself quick enough that the gain won't be too bad.

My strength comes and goes, like a merry-go-round. A couple of weeks ago, Waymon made a lemon cake with cream cheese icing. I promised myself that I was going to throw at least half that cake in the trash. I was not going to eat it. I have always said that the most important promise you make and cannot break is the promise you make to yourself. I stuck to that promise. The last time I looked under the cover at that cake, there was about 2/3 of it left. Next thing I knew (about a week later), the cake had disappeared.

Yesterday, Waymon picked up a frozen deep dish apple pie. Last night the pie was baked. Now, I love apple pie! ! Nothing like a good ole piece of hot apple pie with lots of sugary cinnamon. Yummy. Today there is half that pie still in the pie tin. Yep, I have not indulged in the pie. And you know what, I have not been tempted. Again, I made that promise to myself that I was not going to eat the pie.

Today I feel so strong and determined. I know that these promises will keep me going in the right direction. Maybe I should start each day with a promise to myself and make sure that I keep that promise. There are so many things that can make us stronger if we practice them a little at a time. I just need to take each item one by one, step by step, promise by promise. I truly think that will lead me to the goal I want to see.

Tomorrow my promise will be to not be upset over my gain. I will accept it and not let it throw me into a tailspin. I will go on with my plan I am on now and move forward.

My promise to myself is important and I cannot break it.

    Hope you get a real surprise at your weigh in. But in case you have gained, sounds like you are mentally prepared to face it and move forward without letting it send you into a tailspin. Way to go!!

    What a good idea to make a promise to yourself. If I had someone who brought on those tempting goodies in I think I'd ask them to at least buy sugar free types. Even then we can overindulge in them. You've keep your promises this week so that's really a success. Don't be too upset if you gain at WW as this week sounds like you've done well. I hope you'll be surprised tomorrow and find out you've either stayed the same or only gained a pound or two. Good Luck to You, and me. Take good care and whatever you're WI is don't "mentally beat" yourself you just keep moving forward and think positive.
