Positive Thinking

It's Sunday night and I've eaten out WAY too much this weekend without even attempting to counteract the calories with exercise. However, instead of berating myself, and thereby ending up at the bottom of a self-destructive spiral (and a pint of Ben & Jerry's), I'm going to take the bull by the horns and figure out what I can do now. Right now. The Denny's, the McDonald's, the Irish Pub, that's all in the past. Or at least in my colon.

Right now, I can vow to lose 1 pound this week. Just one. That's all I'm looking for. I weighed myself this morning and I'm at 135.8. As gowd is mah witness, by next Sunday, I will be 134.8.

Tomorrow night I'm going grocery shopping and stocking up on healthy foods. That's all there is to it.

Care to join me in this mini 7 DAY Challenge?

7 days might be more productive than 7 weeks--i failed miserably at that one!

SP, it *is* possible. I am at week 16 of my 7-week challenge. Target weight, 190. Beginning weight, 218. Current weight 191.5. Fresh fruit, fresh veggies, eat 5 times a day (breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner), exercise 5 out of 7 days a week. It *will* happen.

I can find every excuse in the book not to join with ya. My scale is a solar scale and there isn't enough light in the bathroom so I kinda can't weight myself. I *Could* move the scale into the kitchen where there isn't a rug but then I couldn't weigh myself naked...
I have been trying to eat right, exercise 4-5 days a week.
I do have my dr appt this week and she has been monitoring my weight so I need to watch what I eat for a few days or else I will get yelled at. I'm trying!!!
So we will see what happens. I did end up buying bigger pants since my other pants didn't fit anymore and i do feel so skinny now since the bigger pants are a little loose.
