One Step At A Time

I did it.
I got on the scale this morning.
It wasn't pretty!!
I think I heard my scale weep just a little bit. 
I joined it.

But it's ok.  This is where I am and I can't change that at this moment.  But it will change.  It takes time.  I will be gentle with myself and take one step at a time.
This week my goal is to think before I eat - no mindless eating.

They'll be many more steps to take - jounaling my eating, getting my 8 glasses of water a day, exercise (why does that always sound like a dirty word to me?) and so on..  But life is a journey and this is part of it.

My mini goal is to lose 5 pounds, however long that takes.

Well I'm off to prepare for our 5 year old friend that's coming over for a playdate.... That's gotta be worth a pound ;)


  1. Yay for getting on the scale and facing it. Now, it's dust yourself off and think before you eat. You got this girl. One choice at a time. You are SO worth it.

    Thanks for your comments on my last post... I really appreciate your kind words.

    Have a wonderful day, my friend. Life is good!!


  2. Good on you for facing the scale. That's one of the hardest things when you expect a gain.

    Hope your plan goes well today.


  3. Good for you getting on the scale! How are you doing?
