So far today...

Not too bad. Not perfect. Not great. But not horrible. :-)

I have a nice pot of chili on the stove. I made lots so I'll be freezing some. I'm drinking water right this minute. It's my first glass of the day...but I'm drinking it! It's finally starting to look like spring out there, so I may take the girls for a walk after dinner.

Things are looking up.

Okay then...

Let's try this again.

In a rut...

I just can't seem to get my head back in this game!

The decisions that I make now will determine whether I will succeed or fail at this. If I decide to stay on this course of eating poorly and not exercising, I will stay fat. I will get fatter. I will continue to have low energy levels. I will continue to be self-conscious in public. My knees will get sore again and I'll likely end up like my father, requiring knee surgery just to be able to walk. Depression will take over and I'll end up mostly bed-ridden, like my mother. My body will rebel, and rightly so, if I don't keep this commitment I've made to lose weight and be healthier. My body will rebel.

I decided awhile back that my motto here was going to be "Never. Give. Up." because I know full well that if I give up, I will fail. That's all there is to it. So my only chance at success is to never give up. There is no other option.

Now...let's see if that helps.

My comment from OSB...

Not good! I was away from home for three weeks (I only WISH it was a cruise!) and I had a gain of 3.2. So, a pound a week. I'm not happy, but I also don't believe it's a real gain...salty food the day before weigh in, PMS, etc. Still, I'm going to try to be extra conscientious this week!

Too lazy (and too in denial??) to update my progress. :P

Lisa, it's your birthday! Happy Birthday, Lisa!

I survived. I think we all knew I would. Anyway, it's good to be home. I'll be going to my first WW meeting in a month this Wednesday. Yeah, I could have gone in Halifax...but I didn't. So, we'll see.

And yes, it actually is my birthday today. I've been telling everyone that I'm turning 39 when, as my husband pointed out yesterday, I'm actually turning 38! Score! And I've got the Happy Birthday, Lisa song from the Simpson's stuck in my head. It happens every year. Ever since I saw the episode of the Simpson's where Bart collaborates with "Michael Jackson" (actually it was some guy that either thought he was the real MJ or he just happened to have MJ's name...) I've heard that song in my head on my birthday all. day. long.

I wonder if this happens to all Lisas?

Tomorrow is the day!

I'm heading home. This has been a LOOOOONG three weeks. I'm not looking forward to Wednesday's weigh in, but maybe it won't be so bad.

I'm going to sleep now.

I hate being crazy

There's really not much more I can say about that right now.
