I have to confess that I am not beating myself up for the gain that I'm experiencing this year. (See post from earlier today.) It's been a rough year.
Do I wish I could've handled the changes in my life without gaining weight? Of course.
Do I wish I would've seen the ten-pound gain and lost it over the summer without putting on another five pounds? Absolutely.
However, that has not been the case. For some reason, that I really can not put my hand on, I have not gotten serious until now. I say that because as I am about to go to bed I can proudly say I've stayed within my calorie budget for the day -- including a mini s'mores I made with my girls after dinner.
One of the things that has been helpful to me is to see motivational quotes and articles that kind of bring my mind back into focus.
This article titled, "Are You Lying to Yourself?" by Bonnie Phiester pretty much sums up what I've been doing. Being honest with myself has always been key to my success, so I thought I'd share this article with you all in case you need a good dose of honesty like I did.
