Ok, this week on WW I learned that I’m likely to eat bad things if I’m in a rut. I need to try some new foods. I also learned that stress is a problem for me and eating. (ok I already knew that!) I also learned that I can get started in a downward spiral if I eat too much junk food. Once I start I want it constantly. But, on Sunday I actually ate half a cupcake and gave the other half away…. and it was CHOCOLATE! So, I’m not sure what the scale will say, but I feel like that alone was a victory!
I also promised a friend I’d post this to encourage you.
If I lost just 1 pound a week in 2011:
By Valentines Day
I’d be 7 lbs lighter! I’m loving it!
By St. Patrick’s Day
I’d be 11 lbs lighter! With the luck-o-the Irish I’ll make my goal.
I’d be 16 lbs lighter! I’d be a cuter bunny.
By Memorial Day
I’d be 23 lbs lighter! Won’t let it rain on my parade.
By Flag Day
I’d be 25 lbs lighter! Boy, could I wave my flag then.
By Independence Day
I’d be 27 lbs lighter! That’s a neat declaration of Independence from overeating!
By Labor Day
I’d be 36 lbs lighter! What a wonderful reward for all my hard work.
By Columbus Day
I’d by 41 lbs lighter! What a joy to discover what I can do.
I’d be 44 lbs lighter! I didn’t think I had a ghost of a chance.
I’d be 47 lbs lighter! I’d have so much to be thankful for.
By Christmas Eve
I’d be 51 lbs lighter! Talk about being merry!
By New Year’s Eve
