The Truth Of Tuesday Night

My lack of focus has continued on for yet another week.  I'm not sure what it will take to make me snap bck into it.  Clearly the motication of losing weight is not enough.

Last week: 251.25 lbs
This week: 251.75 lbs

Gain of .50 lbs

Not huge, but it's been a steady increase, not a slip up from one week.
I created a new challenge for my TOPS group.  Partly out of my own need and selfishness.  I needed to do something to make me food log, exercise and feel motivated to eat better.  I think my group is in the same position though.

One of the things I did to help keep the incentive there was to partner everyone up...that way, your personal failure not only affects you, but your partner too.

Part of the challenge includes food logging and exercise.  I refuse to let my partner down because I couldn't manage to walk every day.  As for food logging...I didn't indicate it had to be full of healthy could be all chocolate bars for all anyone cares, just write it down.

Linking up this week....because I can!


  1. Great job! Keep up the hard work and log, log, log!

  2. I think that is a wonderful idea! Having a close partner that you have a responsibility to is pretty good for motivation. John is about ready to be that person for me here, although I will always consider you my #1 in terms of accountability! :-)

  3. yeah if i don't log, I convince myself i'm not doing badly, for me logging is half the battle, such a smart move to make yourself accountable!

  4. I hear ya...I've been having a rough couple weeks myself. Love the partnering up idea - I wouldn't want to let someone else down either.
