That terrible moment I knew......

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

That moment we all have probably experienced. I knew I had put off weighing in because of careless eating habits creeping in.
Hubs and I were sitting at the dinner table and he randomly said, "hey, where are the scales?" Instant panic. I didn't know for sure. I knew if I admitted (out loud) that I had no real idea it would be admitting I have not been weighing regularly.
I quickly said up stairs in the bath room (the old one was there for sure) He said, "Ya, but the batteries are dead in it. Where are the new ones? The ones you use?" panic. stay calm. Give it your best guess. "Oh, those ones, they are under the desk in the kitchen." (That was the last place I recall seeing them) I tried to be casual and finish eating and then quickly sped to the place I last saw them and WHEW! Sure enough they were there! Dodged that bullet! So that gave me a wake up call that it was time to hold myself accountable again.
Picked some apple in the back yard and made some fried apples using just water. No butter or fat. They turned out beautiful!

Now go, eat healthy. Hold YOU accountable!

    I need to face the scale soon; just can't do it yet. Your blog makes me realize this is only postponing what I need to do. Good job on the fake out; glad it worked out! lol

    Hey Kim,

    Good blog....I let myself slide for over a month, and am now back in the

    My daughter, wants to wear my clothes, since I now weigh less than she,
    but I am hoping since she is now working a 2nd shift instead of midnights,
    her health and weight will improve...she is also facing back surgery in Aug.
    due to a fall in the kitchen at work.

    Just as a matter of curiousity, how much more are you wanting to lose??

    We have all been there! I'm glad you were able to fake hubby out for now... but I think more importantly that shows that YOU want to get back on track for YOU. If you didn't care you simply would have said "I'm not sure, I'm not worried about the scale right now", but you are worried about it and you care about losing weight. I know you can turn it around. emoticon

    Yes I had to do the same the other day. Hadn't weighed myself in about 8 months or so and I knew my clothes were getting a little tighter. Got on the scale and low and behold I gained 15 pounds. Yikes!!!!

    I have yet to get back on track.

    Hope you do better than I
