It sure is, especially 2 days after Halloween!!
So since my last update and weight loss of 2.2lbs, this has been my progress...
Week 35 +.4
Week 36 -.2
Week 37 -2.6
Week 38 +1.6 (yes, today's results!!)
So as of right now... the net effect of the last few weeks, I'm down a total of 30.4 lbs.
Hey, slow and steady wins the race, right?
Although I went up this week, it was expected. It was a tough weekend with parties and heavier meals for some reason. I can honestly say it wasn't really even due to the Halloween candy that caused my gain. I really feel proud of how much self control I have had over the dreaded candy this year. And its sitting out right where I can see it too, so its all good!!!
However, fall has started and so has my mental attitude towards food. Its like fall hits, and there is a button that clicks in your head (well in my head for sure) that says, "Oh its that time of year when comfort food is what you want, and the sweets after dinner are ok."
Umm, No! I'm not ok with that this year!
I also have to hit up the walking again. My dad has been in town lately and I've been busy trying to keep him busy so its thrown me off with scheduling time for that too. But hey...No excuses!!
I can only assume that this up and down wave of progress will be my reality for the duration of the holidays. I have to keep realistic and know that the upcoming holidays will provide more than the usual challenges and I will have my down falls, but I will survive this!!
On a positive note, my kids and I have been on a Michael Buble kick in the car lately, and the first song that came on after I got back in my car from weighing in was his song.."That's life!"
Its started off with ...
"Don't let it get you down, don't let it get you down"
"For this world keeps spinning round"
And I just smiled!!! It was sooooo meant for me right there and then!
"I've been up and down and over and out"
But I know one thing
Each time I find myself flat on this face
I pick myself up and get back in the race"
It sure is! And I'm soo ok with that. I'm picking myself up and getting back in the race...Today!
Until next time, Thanks for stopping by!
From my corner to yours...
