I am worth it!

This past week has been interesting for me.  I've made a lot of good choices and some bad.  I can't help some of the bad sometimes and I'm not sure why!  Maybe because I'm human?

I know when going for that candy that I really shouldn't do it.  Not because I can't have it on Weight Watchers, but because I typically don't want to stop and it leads to other bad choices.

When I go to my Mom's house, she always has some kind of treat there and I always want it.  EVEN if it's nothing special.  If she tries to hide it (you can bet after reading this she will try to hide now), I WILL FIND IT.  I think it's the comfort of home feeling.  So Mom, PLEASE don't hide it, because it actually makes me want it more.

As you know, I've been working really hard lately to stay on track - meaning exercise and eating.  I'm really proud of myself because I feel like I've got the motivation AND the will power back.  That is really hard to get back when you've lost it for some time.  I literally lost it for a year.  Pretty much a whole year (2014) maybe more.

What got me back on track???

Honestly, I don't know.  Maybe it's because I gained a bunch, enough to make me have to buy more clothes, feel miserable and feel that the weight was making everything harder for me.  Maybe it was my dad's death last year (he was a very unhealthy person - eating and in general our genes are not the greatest).  Maybe it was knowing that my other family members are having issues and I can see myself in them.  I honestly don't know.

I'm back to "no more excuses."  Honestly, I hate excuses and always have.  No one can do this for me and there's no magic pill that's going to help.  There are things that enhance weight loss but eventually they don't work and most of them can make you pretty miserable during the process.  And if they don't, it's not something that you will likely continue for a lifetime.

I need to remain responsible for my weight loss/gain, the choices I make and the effort I put in.  I am committed.  Totally committed.

I did lose this week.  I didn't work out as much as I did the previous week and my activity points weren't as high as they have been... but I balanced out my points accordingly (or at least made a good attempt at it).  My loss this week is 2.6 lbs.  A great weight loss (I think some of this should have been last week LOL so it's make up and proof that the scale doesn't always show your progress right away).

With that said, I'm about to embark on a two week vacation, where I want to do and try everything.  When I get back, I'm going to read this post so that it reminds me that I can get myself back on track.  It is possible!  I love myself and care about myself enough to make it happen!  I am worth it (so are you)!

You won't hear from me for a few weeks.  So enjoy your break!

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!
