Weekly Weigh-In #49

I thought I better do something to get my Weekly Weigh-Ins up to date.
I was down for the second week in a row. Yay!!! I've had to really be strict with my diet to get the scale to respond. I've "focus"ed my food list, eating small quantities of specific foods often. It seems to be working, so we'll just keep on keepin' on. I was hoping to stay away from having it so structured but if structure is what I need to get to goal, so be it.
To make sure I stay true to myself, I got up and got on the elliptical a few times this week. Sitting on my butt wishing and hoping I don't gain is not enough, I have to put ACTION to those hopes and wishes. We all have to decided what is important to us, how badly we want something, and how much effort we are going to put into achieving what we are after. If I FOCUS and make the time... this is doable. I am not 100% but I'm doing SO MUCH MORE than I have in the past. Some days I hate it, honestly, but most days I don't. I never ever wake up and wistfully tell myself, "If only I were still nearly 200 pounds...",   ...not one day.


This is worth fighting through the downer days... It's worth walking past the donuts, not having torte for my birthday, and worth making myself MOVE.
I want this. I deserve to reach and maintain my goal. I want it BAD!!!!
