Day 28 - Manic Monday - Egads

Today marks the last day of ONE WHOLE MONTH. I bring you - Manic Monday...egads...

And I'm here to tell you that for the last two weeks I have struggled mightily. Sounds RIDICUlous, doesn't it?

I can't even make it past two weeks without sliding back into old ways?

What is WRONG with me?

Well, I can tell you one thing that's wrong. And this is going to sound a bit (hang on here, for a totally made up word, one of which is the ONLY word that applies here...) ...

JUSTIFICATIONONY <-- oooh, look, I even spelled it just the way I wanted to.

But let's not get off topic.

Two weeks ago, I stopped weighing in daily. I said I was going to stop the daily scale pics and I walked away from my scale except for Saturdays (for Barb) and Tuesdays (for me).

It's not working.

I NEED to weigh myself daily to stay focused. Never mind that it makes me a tad crazy to do so. I have to do it.

Taking into consideration all the psycho (totally psycho) logical aspects of weighing oneself daily, I cannot get around it.

Add to that the simple truth that I am a food addict who still rewards goals reached WITH food - even when it's a loss on the scale...

AND that life is one big ball of CRA-CRA right now because half our house (probably more than half at this point) is packed up and ready for our move...

and the seriously stupid stress THAT'S putting on me...

PLUS the fact that I am now missing the THIRD trainer who promised me great things and then got caught up in his or her OWN life, the nerve, HA)...

And yes...

My kid is also driving me to distraction daily.

Oh, and Stephanie told me to pull up my big girl panties, too. I didn't have the heart to tell her that I don't wear them; can't stand the split butt chunk it creates - but she does make a good point...

There, I said it.

Now that I'm done whining (at least here) I'm going to get back on the scale - tomorrow - and begin weighing in daily again.

I am getting this weight off, people. One gosh darn pound at a time.

Oh, look at me go...

Till next time!
