Frustrated

So maybe it's because it's Monday. Or maybe it's just "that time of the month." But today I woke up feeling frustrated. I have been fighting a weight-loss battle for 3 and a half months, and I'm at a standstill. I lost the first 20 lbs in the first 2 months, and now for all of March and April so far I have only lost 3 lbs and they yo-yo up 2 down 3, up 3 down 2.

I know I havent been super diligent every day; we traveled a lot and there are always those dang Sunday dinners! (BTW- thanks for the brownie last night, Heather... It was delish!) I just go through these cycles that never end: super good eating on Mon thru Thyrs. Then the weekends get progressively worse.

So, this isn't just a venting session (though I thank you for putting up with it). I am just telling you all that I am recommitting to my awesome habits I know I can maintain. I have just gotten lazy and I'm asking you to help me! If you see me eating a brownie after dinner or trying to be lazy and not cook a good dinner, just remind me that I have 40 lbs left to go...

I can do this (with your help)!!

I am right there with you. It's been four months, and it's not getting any easier! I'm glad I have you there to be my cheerleader! (And on Saturday I was thinking "Man, Bonnie looks awesome, I'm so jealous.)

As my favorite fish friend says "Just Keep Swimming, just keep swimming." I am sure you will get to your goal, I don't think quit is in your vocab.

I know it's hard, but you can definitely do it. Be usre to keep a bunch of yummy-flavored sugarless gum within reach for when you need to taste something sweet!
