This morning I had enough. The pants have gotten tight again, there are several jeans I don’t fit into, and it’s time to get re-focused. I can give all kinds of excuses: I was traveling like a mad man, I had no time to eat right, it’s to damn hot to ride a bike with the dogs, etc, etc, etc. It all boils down to one fact: LAZY!! So, while I can’t overcome that inner demon overnight, I can make an effort to do right.
This morning, I stepped on the scale for the first time in months, and it reflected what I felt like. For months now, I pay for Weight Watcher’s e-tolls, but didn’t use them, for things like recording my weight, what I eat, my water intake, etc. It seems overkill, but it works. I know it does, because it worked for me before. The thing that always gets me is I need to eat more then I do, and while I understand the concept, the execution is a little difficult sometimes. Eat to loose weight. But of course, don’t eat just anything and everything. Portion control, good choices, and discipline are the answers, along with exercise. If only i had the money to hire a chef to make good choices, a butler to serve up proper portions, and an exercise coach to keep me moving. That would be sweet! I need a raise!
Beth says I shouldn’t “start over”, the connotation being that I failed. Well, I didn’t fail, I just didn’t succeed. So, this is going to be one day at a time, and hopefully the results will be positive.
