Family Reunion/Slippery Slope - Part 1

Sunday, October 10, 2010

So here's the thing...going to a family gathering today. I want to do well, but I also want to eat the good things I know are coming. I definitely need a strategy and conviction to stick to it. Or should I just allow a day of easing up a bit? (There's been a bit too much of that over the summer, hence my maintenance as opposed to losing mode.)
I guess that's the point of this blog. Been running into my old self lately. Six months of nary a glitch, then summer, friends, good food and drink. Don't get me wrong. I maintained and even managed to lose 2 pounds over the summer. But something happened. My original resolve began eroding and now... now I'm struggling to get it back.
Have been doing much better this past week, feel way more in control. Then came the invitation. I'll start with a very sensible, lean breakfast this morning to accomodate for some extra calories later.
Why do I feel like I don't know the outcome of the day which is pretty lame? All I know is I can't wait to read Part 2 and see what happens! emoticon

    Sorry I missed your first blog especially as you needed some moral support! I'm so proud of all you've accomplished and yes it's hard to keep motivated every day to lose weight especially when the weight doesn't seem to budge. One day at a time and sometimes one hour at a time is the best you can ask of yourself. Take care emoticon emoticon

    Somehow I missed Part 1! And now I know how it turned out. You're doing great - and it's wonderful that you lost 2 pounds over the summer, even though there was lots of yummy distraction. My temptations are in the winter - summer is an easy time for me to lose weight/exercise lots. I will be very happy if I can do as well this winter as you did this last summer! emoticon emoticon emoticon
