I have "been here" over the last few weeks, but boy oh boy, it has been a challenge. I still weigh the same as I did the last time I reported here at 3FC. That can be both discouraging and encouraging. I will take the "encouraging" part in that I didn't gain. I work full time plus home school my 2 boys and it has been SOOOOO hectic, as we began a new schooling program this year, and my nerves have been stretched to their limit (and probably beyond), so I'm glad to see that I haven't gained even though a few little tid bits here and there haven't been good choices.
BUT - this is to declare HERE AND NOW
- it is absolutely RE-FOCUS TIME
for me TODAY
. September 11, 2007 - I'm back on track COMPLETELY.
I will lose the 65 lbs I committed to for the year 2007. As I said when I began, that is all I demand of myself for the year because I didn't want to put my goal so high that I crashed and burned due to overexaggerated goals (which has been my problem many times in the past when trying to lose). However, I'm going to try and hope for more than 65 - because I'm already really close to that. I'm just saying that I'm glad that at least I will reach my minimum
The funny thing about it - I have had MORE compliments the past week than ever before! It is almost like people have noticed the weight loss all of a sudden - and it is when I'm a little off balance more than when I was 100% on track!
OR - maybe they just knew I needed them to mention it more so I would get BACK on track? LOL!! No matter what the case is, I'm glad for the re-focus point that I came to this weekend. It feels so good!!
I'm SO glad the rest of you have kept posting here! I do come here and read all the time even if I don't have the time to post. It has really helped me to remember that I'm STILL trying to get this weight off and to continue on trying even when life is so crazy it is insane.
to you all. I trust you are all doing better in your journey than I am and that you are having great success with your weight loss efforts.
EXPECT TO SEE MORE OF ME AGAIN NOW.....
I'm officially RE-FOCUSED!!!!
Have a blessed day!
