Today was a tough one but I WON!

Sunday, January 27, 2019

I had a long talk with myself the other day. I said self, you will only weigh yourself once a week. So on Sunday mornings I trug downstairs, bare feet slapping the cold floor. Wrapped up in a bathrobe with nothing underneath. I go into the bathroom that holds our scale and proceed to step on and off of it to make sure that there will be no glitches in the result. I quickly divest myself of the robe and step onto the scale. Wait a couple of seconds and look down. For the past couple of weeks its been a slow decline and that has been okay. This morning.....this was not the case. I was up .6 of a lb. I know its not much but it felt huge. I was at the point of saying 'Whatever! I'm fine and I don't need to be good. It's not like its getting me anywhere'. But in the back of my mind came I remembered a radio show DJ commenting on how people usually quit their new years resolutions by mid-February. I did NOT want to become a statistic. I had come too far. I was in week 3 of drinking water and had started dance classes. No way was I going to let .6 of a lb ruin 5 weeks of hard work. There is a notion that it takes 30 days to start a habit and 3 months or more to break a bad habit. I am still in the baby steps of this journey and no one said it would be easy. Therefore, I took a deep breathe, drank my 4th glass of water, put down the doritos and went outside to do yardwork. Happy Sunday ya'll and I wish you determination in your .6lb days! πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

    Hope you loved being out working in the yard! We are under snow cover and I can’t wait for spring. Good job not letting a small disappointment get you off track.

    Good job getting outside, that always helps my mental attitude which in turn helps the rest fall in place. 0.6 isn't that big a deal, it is more likely a hormone fluctuation or water. Keep plugging along, you will see some great results!!!!
