The Truth Of Tuesday Night

I am an intelligent person
I will control my emotions, not let my emotions control me
Every time I am tempted to use food to 
satisfy my frustrated desires, built up my ego or dull my senses,
I will remember,
Even though I over eat in private, 
My excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
- TOPS pledge

Look at that!!!

A Tuesday blog ACTUALLY posted on a Tuesday!  Sign of good things to come for the week perhaps.

I am letting my TOPS meeting this week serve it's purpose....motivation!

The TOPS program has it's own version of a healthy eating guide, known as the exchange system.  I will be the first to admit...I have not read anything about it, tried to follow or understand it.  As a whole, our group is very lost in regards to it.

Our Area Captain came for her yearly visit tonight and she asked if any of us had questions and I pointed out that we feel very challenged in understanding the exchange program.  She encouraged us to just food journal for a week and then as a group, figure out the exchanges.  As leader, I volunteered to journal everything this week and bring it in as the example we can all work off.  My reason for this was purely selfish.  I need to get right back on track with journaling and the best way to ensure I do it this week is having next week program rely on it!

As for the numbers....I gotta say, I am disappointed...once again, things caught up with me.

2 weeks ago:  250.50 lbs
This week: 251.75 lbs

It's not a huge gain, only .75 lbs and I shouldn't have a problem recovering from it if I set my mind to it.  It's going to be a tough one, with Halloween and all, but I CAN DO IT!!

You take my hand,
and I'll take yours,
and we'll start out today,
for a helping hand is what we need to help us on our way.
The way to goal is a lonely road, we need someone to care,
reach out my friend and take my hand
and then we're almost there!

  1. Yay Amy! Tuesday blog is a very welcoming break to my stupid essays for school!

    As for volunteering, that is NOT a selfish purpose! Some of us need to be exposed in order to be motivated!

    If it were up to me (and not illegal) I'd be one skinny bitch in no time if I could walk about naked ALL DAY EVERY DAY! Because then the disgusted looks I'd get would be enough to send me to the gym with the "I'll show them what fit and fabulous look like!!"

    Keep it up girly! You got this! :)
