One Day At A Time...

...is how I have to view this weight loss battle.

I'm still upbeat and determined.

I exercised four out of five days last week.

I watched what I ate, even over the weekend when we were on the road to basketball games in Gainesville, complete with concession stands and victory pizza.

I mostly avoided the office junk food--baked goods, candy, chips, and other snacks--that seems to come in truckloads this time of the year.

I drank more water.

I closed my book at night and went to sleep, making it easier to get up, no matter how much I wanted to read one more chapter.

I stayed away from the pantry in the evenings (by going upstairs and leaving the kitchen cleanup to Hubby).

The result?

I'm down 2 lbs. from last week.

If you want to join me over at the 50 Million Pounds site, where I've been a member for over a year, in which time I've gained 16 lbs but I haven't given up, click here. I've created a group called Faithfully Fit. It's a group of one at the moment but I'm hopeful some family and friends will show up and together we can make our dent in that 50 million lb. weight loss.

Peace & Blessings,

I'm so proud of you for hanging in there and not giving up. We can't succeed if we don't persist.

I started the detox from my chiropractor, and yesterday I was hungry all day ...

I'm proud of you too, Chicki. Many would have given up with your leg problems. Let me know how the detox works for you.

Hey! Congrats on the 2lbs. That's wonderful. I need to get a scale. My last weigh in was the beginning of Nov at the hospital. I'll keep you posted.
