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!

Hi everyone! I'm back reporting on my weigh in's.  I haven't been to a TOPS meeting since the last time I posted.  I have been busy in camp planning mode for my Brownie unit and those meetings have been on Tuesdays as well and then last week was cancelled due to weather.

I wasn't sure how I would do.  I know I had been WAY down due to some stress.  That stress caused me not to each much.  But the stress lifted and I went back to munching away.

I did manage to get it a few walks the past few days and perhaps that was my saving grace.  I did see a loss on the scale, but not as huge as it could have been for 3 weeks.

Last "week": - 255.50 lbs
This week: - 253.75 lbs

Loss of 1.25 lbs  (go me!)

I decided last night that it's time to step it up and make a concerted effort to change.  I say that so much and then flounder around.  Again that is what I have been doing, but I'm hoping the nice weather will be encouraging.

Here's hoping anyway.  If nothing else, I still have not given up on the battle!

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!
