Not feelings... but fact!

I have been somehow going up on the scale.. and I am not sure how. I felt over a week ago that I just wanted to eat... I didn't care what, but I controlled myself, and didn't overly splurge. I knew in my mind that if I did I would regret it. I didn't, but come weigh in time on Monday, I was still up 2 pounds. I had been doing some Jillian's DVD's. I realize that there is some strength training involved in those which may add muscle. Last week I trudged on... tracked... but was eating the upper level of my calorie intake... I still exercised a few times, but honestly even as I tried to pump myself I was getting discouraged. Yesterday I went home and decided that I am NOT going to give up! Why would I go backwards? Who cares if one or two weeks I feel like I want to eat and don't want to keep track and I am losing ground... I can't live on just what I feel. What am I going to do just quit??? The most important thing I have learned in my journey of life is that you can't go on feelings, you go on fact. I know that if I keep on working at it, forget the numbers on the scale; they are not the most important thing, but if I just keep going then I will reach my goal. This is life. This is my life. I can chose to make bad choices day after day, or I can make good choices. I choose to believe that I can do this, and that I am going to suceed. I chose to live a healthy lifestyle.
As I got home yesterday, I put in Jillian one more time and she kicked my behind. I sweat, I hurt, but when it was all over, I felt much better. And the fact is.... I can put on a skirt that I couldn't wear last month. No matter what my feeling is today, I am going to track my calories, drink my water, exercise and at the end of the day, I will feel good that I did what I could for myself.... for my future. And one day I too will get the comment, "you are thin!" Thanks sparkpeople for the inspiration to just keep moving. I WILL SUCCEED!
