I am a creature of habit. Unfortunately, I am a creature of bad habits. That being said, you’d think I was writing about some epic fail I had yesterday. I am not. I got on the scale in the morning yesterday, and I was down to 276.6 pounds! I should mention it was very early, I didn’t have my glasses on, and could have been standing on my toolbox.
Here’s where the bad habits factor in. I ate poorly several times last week. I went out to eat more than I should have, ate things that got me here in the first place, and yet still lost weight. Are you seeing where I’m going with this? My mind says, “You can cheat and still lose weight! This is great – let’s hit the buffet!” You see, I’m like an alcoholic, but with food. I can’t cheat, because the cracks in that foundation quickly turn into chasms. Today I have to take the time to carefully put a two week menu together and stick to it. There is no point in planning if I’m not going to follow the plan.
Happy Sunday everyone!
