Fake it till you make it...

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

This is a bit close to home for me at the moment.

I’m doing all I can to get to Onederland, but I’ve been here before....

I’ve been yo-yo-ing between 211 pounds and 204 pounds for a while.

Today I hit 205 pounds again.

This time I need to get past that 204 pound point and keep going.

So what am I going to do?

I will keep doing the stuff I need to get me past my ‘danger point’.

And if that means, ‘ Fake it till I make it’, then that’s what I will do....

I need to get past this point and through to ‘Onederland’, so I’ll use all the help you lovely sparkling, sparkly Sparkfriends offer. I know the ‘buck stops here’, but I’m no island and I’ll take all the help I can get.

Thank you!

Ps. Mabel is still laying huge eggs and I think Ethel will be soon too, as soon as we stop disturbing them as we erect our greenhouse, next to the chicken coop.... almost done.

Pps. The hens should have peace again by the weekend, as we want more eggs!

Btw, one of the lilac trees is starting to blossom... spring is on its way here!

    Truthfully the one thing that has been evident in my what??...12 years on Spark (!!) is that eating less = losing weight. It isn't working out like mad. It isn't a new diet or program. It is simply eating less. There may be one day of the week when you are hungry like crazy, and on that day you should eat until sated, but no more.
    You will get there!! I'm rooting for ya!

    Mabel lays huge eggs. Maybe the rest of them think they don't have to since she provides so substantially... emoticon So cool you're building a greenhouse! I've always thought having one would be nice but space is an issue for us. Can't wait to hear about all the freggies you grow in it! The only thing that really helps me with weight loss is being 100% committed to staying well below allotted calories and tracking everything. It's mind numbing and tiresome and no way to live at all, but it works. Good luck!

    It's amazing how an arbitrary number can affect our behaviour and attitude, what power we give it!

    Lot's of egg recipes on the horizon! Or I imagine they are beyond perfect softly fried and simple.

    Best wishes, and I'm jealous of your early spring!

    Wow! You have a lot earlier spring than we do.

    And Wow on your hen continuing to lay such large eggs!

    Keep to the basics, and you'll get past that 204 and into onderland.
