It is Wednesday and I always get worried that I haven’t lost weight this week. Our home scale is so bad, I really can’t tell if I have lost or gained on it. I will find out at my Weight Watchers meeting tommorow.
With all the rain we have had this last week, I haven’t gotten out in the yard to work. This is where I get a lot of my activity points. I have been getting a walk or some sort of exercise in every day (except yesterday – but that is covered in the entry Rough Day).
Maybe the rain has me a bit blue. Maybe I am discouraged that I still have a lot of weight to loose. Maybe I am mad at myself for letting myself get this big. Maybe I really want some Godiva Chocolate Ice Cream.
Ok I am going to look at some statistics to see if this helps me.
Starting weight: 187 lbs
Weight at last weigh-in: 163 lbs
total weight loss: 24 lbs
I was wearing a 16 and between an XL and a 1X.
I am now in a 12 and a large.
I can chase my son better.
I can carry my son farther.
Our family weekend hikes are a lot more enjoyable.
I do not have to stop and rest on the hill exiting the zoo.
I know in my heart that I am doing the right thing. I need to look at what I have done that is good, not the last couple days that were not so good.

I am going to add my favorite quote:
If you have made mistakes… there is always another chance for you… you may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down, but the staying down.
