Well, because it's hard to do... Weekly Weigh-In #53

Last Week's Weigh-In?
No, I didn't forget, I just hate posting that it's not better, or in this case not as good as the previous week. (I was up 2 pounds.)

So back to why I thought blogging weekly weigh-ins was a good idea...

It's a way to hold myself accountable.
It's  a way to celebrate when I was successful as well as "fess up" if I wasn't trying hard enough. 
It's  a way to support others and be supported in this endeavor.
It's  a time to review the past week and see what went well and what didn't.  Using that information, I would be able to better "FOCUS" on what was needed for the upcoming week and stay successful, a motivational tool for me.
Honestly though, I'm having a tough time seeing it as a motivational tool for me when I don't show a loss on the scale.  But, if I just stop blogging, when I' still have road to travel, what else would I be giving up?  Would I lose another pound?  Maybe, maybe not. But at least part of me thinks if I stop posting weekly-weigh-ins that it would be the first step to giving up.  I don't want to go there.  So I'll continue on... and I will make real progress again, ...  cuz I'll make sure.   See ya tomorrow, rain or shine!
