So sorry it took forever to get back here. Uhhh! Too much was happening, but that is over now. My computer is fixed and I am back from a stressful 2-week trip back east (Jersey Shore/Cape May area) singing.
So I weighed myself yesterday thinking that, due to my stress on the trip, I would have gained a ton of weight due to some not so amazing food choices I made a few times. Well, I did ok, and for that I can be proud. I am down 5 pounds from my initial weight and have 21 more to go. I also re-measured myself and wrote down those numbers on a chart that I keep in a binder. Everyday I am reading an “Agreement of Resolution” that I wrote to myself making myself promise, on a daily basis, that I stick to my goals. I have my goals clearly written in it and it is signed and dated. Here is a pix of it:
I borrowed/used this idea from Brenda Leigh Turner’s online book that I bought directly from her on her website http://www.leansecrets.com. I encourage anyone who needs a major kick in the pants for a re-boot on losing weight to buy it (it’s only $27.00). There is valuable info in there. It was my reward that I promised myself that I would buy when I returned from my trip. I love her ideas, especially drinking a gallon of water a day…that’s right! It helps with cravings like nothing else.
I hope you are on your weight-loss/healthy lifestyle way and not letting anything stop you. Keep going, and when the going gets tough: pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again!
