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, build up my ego or dull my senses,
I will remember - even though I overeat in private,
my excess poundage is there for all the world to see!
So, it's been such a long time since I have faithfully gone to TOPS and weighed in. I was there for our yearly Christmas potluck in
Last weigh-in: 250 lbs
This week: 256.50 lbs
That's a honkin' gain of 6.50 lbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But, it's the new year and I have our monthly challenge lined up to keep me motivated! I've got this! I really plan to make progress this year.
Let's compare where I was last year versus this year
January 2014: 243.25 lbs
January 2015: 256.50 lbs
Overall gain of 13.25 lbs
I have my work cut out for me...not only do I need to lose weight, I have to make up ground from all my hard work last year.
I can do this though, I just have to focus and count on my challenge peeps to keep me focused! They have been awesome at it so far!
Here is to a good week! My TOPS goal is to get a star each week for the rest of the month. To do that I have to lose weight or stay the same.
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!
