Still Gaining After All These Years

Saturday, May 18, 2019

There was a gain this morning. How challenging it is to remain calm about it. I could easily chuck the whole endeavor as I often have done, but for a pair of white pants I want to wear, lol. Forget health -- it's always better to look good than to feel good. (Thank you for that, Billy Cyrstal doing Fernando's Hideaway on SNL.)

Maybe I should pull those glaring white pants out of the closet and hang them where I can see them, with their price dangling to taunt me and that brilliant whiteness threatening to make my rear end look even BIGGER if I don't drop this weight.

Oh, I have done this weight thing so often! I am trying to make it this time and must not get depressed by past failures. It is not helpful to think that today's gain is a reason to stop trying!

Look back -- but don't stare.

    My BIG reason to manage my weight is health related: now 10 years all clear from estrogen positive cancer.

    But the day to day motivation is . . . yup . . . vanity, of the white pants type. I wanna look good in MY white pants, and my white shorts also!!!

    Be patient and keep at it! I learned as much about patience as I did about food while losing my weight.

    My sis and her BFF have had great success with the WW Freestyle so I told her I would try it for a,week.
    My wt is exactly the same despite eating tons of FRUITS and veggies (a treat after low carving all these years).

    NO, it certainly isn't helpful to quit. So, pick yourself up and dust yourself off, forgive yourself and move on the path again. Yup . . . easier said than done, I know, but quitting won't do ANYTHING for you.
