Inspiration when you need it.

Monday, September 23, 2013

This is one of the first things I saw this morning. As I was sitting here a little bummed that I had actually GAINED 1.4 pounds this week. I was doing a little bit of negative self-talk and going back over the week. Yes, I had Chinese one day as I blogged earlier. I made the wisest choices that I could and thought that I did OK. Yes, we celebrated out anniversary on Thursday but I had baked chicken and asparagus and bread. Hmmmm.

Then I saw this and thought "It doesn't matter what happened this week." It's just one week and it's just one weigh-in. The thing is to keep going. Little by little I will get there. It may take me longer because I can't really exercise but if I don't quit I will get there. Anniversaries and birthdays and holidays are going to happen. I will not give up Chinese completely. It's one of my "one weaknesses" emoticon I just need to aim to have more good days than bad days and keep on keepin' on.

That feels so much better to say than to try to be perfect and beat myself up when I'm not. That's one of the things that got me here to begin with.

Love and happiness always,

    We don't fail when trying! When we don't get the results we were expecting, we need to stop and see what we did wrong on the trial. Then, correct the mistakes. Try again, with the improvements we decided to make.

    You can do this. Just watch the salt because it sneaks up on you. I have a hard time with that. The portions get tricky too if you don't weigh and measure. It might surprise you if you look up portion sizes. It did me. Have a great day. Pam

    Yes, there are weeks like this. I wish you a better one next week and the week after that too... thanks for being around. You are such an encouragement. I seriously think I would not have survived without some of your timely encouragement. emoticon

    Da** straight!! One week is nothing. Plus, 1.4 lb is probably water weight considering how well you did last week. Do you know the trick to losing water weight? It's super easy and makes me feel great - cut down on salt and drink at least a gallon of water per day for a day or two. It flushes the body out.

    Thanks for the post - your positive attitude helped me out today!
