Hey All! I'm sorry I haven't been able to post... hubby has consumed all of my available computer time with his dumb game that he plays online
You are right, Barb, it is more of a security issue than anything. I walk to and from the weight room and feel secure, but it is just the thought of being alone where people can see me, but I can't see them. But Ellis is so right. I need to put all that aside and just get off my butt and get moving. I'm not doing myself any good by sitting around worrying about it. I couldn't go last week because I was working myself to death, but today is Sunday, the first day of the week, and I'm done feeling sorry for myself and making excuses. If I don't feel secure going to the weight room, well, helloooooo, I only have an entire shelf of workout videos of everyone from Richard Simmons to Susan Powter. I guess the bottom line is, I HAVE NO EXCUSE.
I'm getting ready to go grocery shopping in a little bit, and I sat down last night with my SBD book and cookbook and made up a great list. I'm going to clean out my kitchen of anything non-SBD friendly before I go, and that includes wiping out the fridge and making it all sparkly (I do that each week before shopping anyway - helps to do it when the fridge is empty...lol).
I've maintained drinking a lot of water, but am going to increase it back to where I was (100-120 oz a day) starting today.
This is the only plan I have ever been on that has worked for me and made me feel great. I am the only one who is going to lose this weight for me. I can't stop now. I've lost 18 pounds and am not going to gain it back. I'm committing right here, right now, to getting back on track and I'm not going to beat myself up for past mistakes and past failures.
THANK YOU so much for being here for me, and for everyone else. THANK YOU for cheering me on. I look forward to posting my new weight loss results!
Cheering YOU on!!!!
I love you guys!
