So why, why do I have such a hard time persevering? I think I should have been given the genetic “self control” marker, and not the “self indulgent” marker; I do think somewhere in my making they were mixed up. I find that I often times frustrate myself because of my total lack of perseverance and self control, but don’t know how to fix it.
I am going to persevere this time, I am going to make my grandmother, dad, husband, family, friends, kids and MYSELF proud. I know in my mind that it is going to take time; I just wish it was a little easier to stay encouraged.
Today, I was actually excited to “hit the scale”. I fully expected that with the efforts this week I would have met my first goal….Well here it is, I didn’t. I am 1.6 pounds away. Wow, how I was hoping to hit it this week, but, well, STINK! it just didn’t happen. Oh how I want to give up. How dumb is that? I have lost weight, just not as much as I wanted to. I have, on the other hand, been able to stick to my other plans, so I will celebrate that, and hope I can continue into this week.
Until next week… Stick to it!!
