What Happened?

Well, I know what happened. I just ate how I wanted to instead of how I should have. It was sickening. I had lousy stuff, too. It wasn't worth it. Why did I do it? Why did I have a fairly easy time doing this for three months and now I want to eat everything in the house?

This morning I ate appropriately. The end is in sight. I can actually imagine being at goal. I can't give up this late in the game. I think maybe I need a shorter term goal or an event to shoot for because this is much easier in smaller chunks than just determining to stay diet-faithful for the rest of the year.

My 24th wedding anniversary is exactly one month from today. That can be my first 'chunk'. My 49th birthday is about 1.5 months after that. That can be my second challenge. After that I'll come up with something else. These little things really do help me. It's just a mind thing but it helps.

I need to rely on the Lord to help me get past these tough parts, the plateaus, and sometimes just the discouragement when I look at folks that can eat three times what I do and never gain an ounce.

Well, I have to get going. I was up early this morning and got a lot done, but we're starting our schoolday late because our other student is late this morning.

Have a good day, within your point system!

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

Well, I am glad you are back on track and you are not letting the other throw you. I have even heard recently that if you have been dieting and then get off it might stimulate you to lose again. I sure hope that proves to be right for you. I have been praying for you. I hope you have lots to show at you anniversary time. connie from Texas
