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, 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!

After having missed last week, I was ramped and ready to go to TOPS tonight.

I felt I had a pretty good week.  I followed the advice of my girlfriend and made small manageable goals for each day.  I set them so I could succeed.  My girlfriend advised me (wisely, might I add!) that if I make small changes they will help lead to results on the scale.

For this week, they did.

Last week: 255.75 lbs
This wee: 253.50 lbs

Loss of 2.25 lbs

I'm encouraged.  My simple goal for tomorrow is to get in 30 minutes on the treadmill.  I'm home alone and haven't taken advantage of that in such a long time.  I just have to make myself do it.

I won't be able to attend TOPS next Tuesday again, but I hope to keep it going and have similar results when I am back in 2 weeks.

So, on the heels of my positive scale results...what simple goal can you make for tomorrow?  What one little thing can you do to make your day better?

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. Way to go on the loss!! And, it seems you are encouraged by the results, rather than super-ecstatic about it! This means you maybe realize the scale can go back and forth, and that the real victory is making the changes and changing your life, not the number at your feet! So proud of you! <3 <3 <3

  2. That's awesome. Love your affirmations! Keep it up.

  3. Great loss!! but more importantly is the positivity! That is what is going to pull you through the less than stellar weeks. Way to go!

  4. Good job!
    I missed last week due to the weather... will see how I do in 2 days :)

  5. Yay! So happy for you! Small changes are the way to go! Hope that you can keep doing the small stuff which adds up to big stuff in the long run!! Woohoo!
