true confessions

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Now that Vandal has 'fessed up to gaining 5 pounds, I will step up to the plate and do the same.

I did NOTHING last week while TC was gone. It started with the catfish dinner and deteriorated into an orgy from there. (Well, not LITERALLY, but you know what I mean.) I got carryout. I didn't exercise. I bought a big bottle of wine. emoticon

As Vandal said, it's scary to see (1) how fast it came back on and (2) how easy it was to fall into the old habits.

I hate to say "today's a new day", because I seem to say that all the time. But I guess that's what this journey requires, a fresh start every day. At least I'm not waiting until Monday (my old pattern).

Everyone, let's get rid of these extra pounds we put on! We've come too far to go back!

    Just like AA, our motto should be "one day at a time". Yes, it IS scary... it is so easy to go back to where we were... and way beyond!! Well, you did the wine, ... I did the Nutella and the pizza... Out with the old and in with the new!! Let's lose those pounds!

    What i am learning on this journey is if you eat something bad that doesn't mean the whold day is ruined... I used to think "well i screwed up so why not" and then I would binge and 'start again tomorrow" now... if I eat something I shouldn't have that is it..no binge!....

    understanding our faults and our habits and not ignoring them is a big step! Good for you!

    Hey TG, We have to stop mirroring our bad weeks!

    You know we're done with last week (history) and we are back to Becks not like our old selves where it would be - oh I'll start Nov. 1. We start NOW and we know Beck's works so let's just do it!!

    As Nancy said on my blog - "No Choice"

    Sorry about your meeting. I know you're pressed for time and now three hours - gone!!

    Make it a good one. Is TC back yet?

    Wishes and prayers that you get back on track soon. I've done the same thing and I'm getting it together today. All we can do is try. Our temporary emotional fixes really disappoints us in the long run when our clothes get tight. Smile
