I don’t deserve this

November 23, 2009 weigh-in - 165.2lbsSo I’m down almost a pound this week.

In the middle of the week I was down more than that.

The problem is that instead of tracking and watching more portions, I thought that ignoring it would be a better idea for the sake of having a social life. A couple of dates, the Gourmet Food and Wine expo and Sydney’s 8th birthday party included foods I probably should have stayed away from…but I didn’t.

So I could have done A LOT better this week. But there aren’t any do-overs. We accept and move on.

I’m NOT upset with the number on the scale (well, I should be because it’s still higher than a couple of weeks ago), but I’m disappointed that I KNOW I could have done better.

I can’t use events and social activities as an excuse, though. I’ve done this all before and somehow made it to goal. I know that planning all of my meals is really key to my success and I’m doing just that. I just need to leave more room for the unexpected but still make wise choices.

I’ll get under 160 by the end of the year.

I promise.

I deserve THAT.

I like that you say you deserve it. So often you hear people talking negatively about themselves. I like that you know you are worth it.
