It has been nearly a month since I checked in for Weight Loss Wednesday. It is sad how easily I am distracted from my goals!
Just this morning I was flipping through my index card notes from early 2012 when I came across my list of goals for this year. Needless to say, I was quite deflated when I realized how few I had even attempted.
So, here I am, ready to chip away at this goal again. I stepped on the scale last Wednesday morning to find myself .4 up from my last post. I succumbed to the defeat and gave up trying. But by Monday morning, I knew that it was time to accept the gift of a new week and begin from there. I began by tracking every bite again. This morning the scale read 2.2 pounds lighter than last Wednesday! I was so surprised. I have 2.2 pounds left to be back at my 'before steriods' weight. "Come on, Fonda! You've got this!"
I know I need to add the exercise back into my daily schedule...but for right now, I just want to celebrate the baby steps.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
"Be brave enough to accept negative feedback as a possible call to action, but not a definition of your identity. And while you enjoy the positive feedback, refuse to get bloated by it."
