"Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the fat girl's trail"
and right on into my mouth!
I tried to tell myself that I would be able to eat the chocolate and candy in moderation...enjoy a bit, but not over-induldge.
BIG FAT LIE!
I ate that crap like it was going out of style.
So, I went on to my meeting tonight to see just what damage I had inflicted.
Last week: 240.00 lbs
This week: 240.50 lbs
+ 0.50 lbs
Considering I ate my weight in chocolate, that's not so bad.
Here's the thing...why do I feel the need to buy my kids so much junk? Between myself and my parents and our babysitter, they got 8 chocolate bunnies, 2 giant eggs and countless chocolate eggs, jelly beans and gummy bunnies.
I need to refocus this week and get back on track. I have been floundering for the past month and barely hanging on.
At TOPS tonight, we had a nice meeting that encouraged us to write "our story"
It was broken into 2 sections. My answers are as follows...
Section 1: My OLD Story
1. My old story, in 25 - 50 words, is this:
My desire to change for ME was not important. I was only focusing on doing it to please others.
2. My story has been influenced mainly by these events or feelings:
A life of always being this was and thinking change was too hard or impossible.
3. If my old story was made into a book, a good title for it would be:
Diary Of A Fat Girl (Because my blog is my book)
4. I want to change my old story because:
I DESERVE a happy ending!
Section 2: My NEW Story
1. My new story, in 25 - 50 words, is this:
I am important and have decided to put myself first.
2. If my new story was made into a book, a great title for it would be:
Diary Of A Former Fat Girl
3. My first step in rewriting my story is going to be:
Being motivated to change and stick with them.
4. I may face the following obstacles:
Lazy days, poor food choices and a list of other "excuses"
It's time to start writing this new story.
