Encouraged December 21, 2008
I made it through today…..sort of. I went over my WW pionts and dipped into my weekly points, but I tracked the points and that is half the battle. I have been on 3fc reading posts and then blogs. I came to the conclusion that there are some really good writers out there and I might need to work on my blogging skills. This is my first attempt at a blog and I think it is right up my alley, but I want it to be interesting and useful to other people as well as myself. Anyway……I found the idea of this is giving me great encouragement to keep going.
Jason and I kind of have a challange going but I don’t think he takes it real serious. In my house we are up by 7am and we stay up late. With four small children it is a luxury to be able to sleep late around here, so I thought we would compete for the only day possible to sleep to 9 or 10. I got him to agree that who ever lost the highest percent of weight each week would get the day. He reluctantly agreed and the old way of alternating bit the dust. The weekend after Christmas is the first weekend and it will be based on our Friday morning weigh in’s. We also set major rewards for our weight loss goals. Once we reach 100 pounds lost we will be allowed one reward that is expensive. He of course being a man, wants to buy a Dodge Ram….lol if they are still making them by then. I want a tummy tuck and breast lift…lol not much of a reward concidering the pain. But I figure I have been fat my whole life and at my highest I was 280 and carry most of my weigt in my stomach. It will be worth it after all the weight is off to really be able to feel good about my body and how I look.
Speaking of Christmas it is fast aproaching and I am not ready. I have done no wraping, no fudge making, no cleaning, and I am having about 10 people Christmas Eve. I did get the rest of my new floor layed in the bedroom today though so that is something. The tree has been up for one full day and not one child has climbed it or pulled it down on them yet. There are always at least small things you can be thankful for I guess.
I supose I will end buy saying if you look hard enough there is encouragement in every day, you just have to look for it.
