Confession and Resolve
Sunday, March 03, 2013
Last week there were ways in which I succeeded. I said no to cinnamon buns dripping with warm icing and to hot apple pie at Bible study on Wed.... I walked for what must have totaled miles on Friday when my friend took me out for the day. I didn't use my wheelchair and walked and walked and walked until in the last store my strength gave out and I had to use a scooter.
Yes, there were good choices.
There also were not so good choices.
Like when I ordered "Sesame Shrimp" at the Chinese food store thinking it was steamed shrimp in a brown sauce with veggies. I was shocked to get a large container full of fried shrimp in a sweet sauce. Granted, it was delicious. But I'm SURE it was really really high in calories.
And then on Friday, while out with my friend, we went to a Chinese Buffet and I had two plates of food. True, the plates weren't full and I didn't eat everything on them...but I still had too much and probably not the best items for weight loss.
So today I weighed myself....and found I was 8 pounds higher than my low point a week or so ago. True....some of it may be water. But I'm afraid that some of it is .....fat.
I"m back to struggling to fasten my pants and certain shirts just look ghastly on me. I'm so tired of being at the starting line. You'd think I'd stop coming back here to visit, wouldn't you???
Well tomorrow is Monday. It's a new day and a new week. I will do better. I promise. Tomorrow I'm going to make a salad to take with me for my lunch. A salad and a Greek yogurt. And it's back to tracking for me. Enough slacking off.
So That's my confession and also my resolve. I'm down but not out of the game. You aren't done until you quit trying.
