I've been very disgruntled about my weight hovering around 197, but have to admit that I really haven't been willing to do all the things I was doing before when I was on the losing track
As I was sipping my HOT skinny mocha, I had a brain flash
I am 'only' 20 pounds from my goal weight!!!!
Coming from almost 300 lbs, that number suddenly isn't quite so daunting.
I've also been whining about not getting out and walking. Thinking that a pedometer would be motivating....I've got one in the black-hole-gravity-test-closet pantry but am too lazy to clean it out and find it....so I made up my mind that today I will go to Walmart and buy another one. I am worth it!
In that vein, I'm realizing that these days, my needs are coming in dead last after the fam, animals, work, life, etc. I made a HUGE mistake with the checkbook that made us overdrawn $2400!!!!
I wrote and MAILED the property tax check that I was intending to hold until March when I transferred money from savings. Tried to use my ATM to buy $75 worth of groceries and was told 'INSUFFICIENT FUNDS FOR THIS TRANSACTION' ARGH!!!!! I thought my acct was hacked as DH spent the weekend in Vegas watching DD#2 play in softball tournament.
Thankfully, bank was very understanding, helpful and we fixed everything in a few hours fee-free. YAY!
Anyway, it was a REAL wake up call that I need to get my @#$% together and get back to focusing on MY program. Like they always say on Southwest flights,"I MUST take care of my needs (oxygen mask) before helping others."
I'm working on MY list first today!
