Back to the beginning...

This morning the scale told me something I didn't want to hear.  I am back to the weight I was at the beginning of January.  It is a set back but not a hurdle I can't get over.  I am still exercising but I haven't been as diligent about the other things I need to do.  This is going to change on Monday.  Why Monday? The first reason is I don't want to think about being "good" while I am watching the Superbowl. If I want to eat the delicious food everyone brings to the party, I will eat.  The second reason is that on Monday is my last day of school.  The stress of school will be over and I won't be reaching for the munchies while I do homework - like I do now.

So on Monday I will step on the scale and start over.  Monday I will do what I need to do to reach my weight loss goals. Monday I will begin tracking all those pesky things like how many glasses of water I drink, how much exercise I do, and how many calories I eat.  Until then I will enjoy Sunday.

This cartoon was hanging on the wall above the scale at Curves when I was a member.  I liked it so much I made a copy and posted it on my refrigerator.

Love the cartoon. My fat and I are realllly good friends. Darn it! I just can't lose weight any more. I gained that five pounds and it will not leave no matter what.
I have to try harder starting Monday too. I need to exercise more. I just don't use up any of those calories I take in.
Have fun today and start new tomorrow.

Very cute cartoon...and so true!

I've never really had to watch my weight until about a year ago. Menopause hit and 10 pounds went on over night. I've worked really hard on my diet over the last 3 weeks and have seen a LITTLE difference but nothing major. Even gave up my regular Pepsi. I'm not getting depressed though. I keep telling myself that it will just be a new way of life, eating better and exercising. I've always been a walker but haven't been able to walk for the last few months because of a broken ankle. I'm hoping within the next few weeks I'll be able to start going to the gym or walking outdoors again.

I'm with you...enjoy the food and activities today and start fresh Monday! So glad you won't have the stressors of school, CONGRATS!

Thank you ladies. I appreciate your comments. I am making a list of reasons why I want to lose weight. Hopefully it will help me stay motivated.
