Hope springs eternal

Tuesday, June 04, 2019

Stepped on the scale today and wanted to cry. Despite my best resolutions of last week of course I'm off track...again! I am confident, however, that if I jump on this issue immediately I can cut my losses - on in this case my gains!

My neighbor with whom I walk dogs twice a day (and work with) had a medical scare and completely changed her diet. In the last three months since her distressing news, and being told she needed to be on medication, and that she couldn't fix the blood chemistry through diet, she's lost 13 pounds and 50 cholesterol points! I have admired her fortitude through this whole process - and I've been hoping for some of it to rub off. Of course, no luck there!

The past three weeks for me have been filled with life events - wonderful events (we now have a doctor in the family!), but stressful nonetheless. And now I'm firmly ensconced in summer and all excuses have flown out the window. There is NO reason I can't stay on track.

So, its suck-up time. Need to pull up the big-girl pants and look at the old to-do list. It started with sitting down and recording what I've eaten today. Well, that's done, now I need to actually STICK to what I have written down?
