Back to Skinny School
Yesterday it was 7 this morning the scale said 9. last week it said 6 - Pounds. I have gained. I figure I average about 8 pounds total that I have put on. Well on my way to a new dress size.
My half hearted attempt to lose is not working, I must make a plan before everything splats in my face... and then attaches to my waist.
Being skinny doesn't come natural for me. Base line I am fat. I am sure of it. Some mornings I even wonder why I should try, the feeling of food sliding into my gullet is a comfort that pays off better than a mirror. If I wanted to be thin only to fit into skinny jeans then it just wouldn't be worth it. That motivator alone just may send me out shopping for fat pants. The tourniquet that is my skinny pants must serve not as a motivator but a reminder of - "a bright recollection of all (my) guilt. Alma 11:43
I need to remember and recommit to my weight loss motivators.
Family. As a mother I set the tone of our house. When I eat at world record pace and then go for a second term - my children race to keep up.
Self. I love the feeling of being healthy, I just do, enough said.
Blog. Silly, but I need the feeling of being accountable, even if no one reads it, I am out there for all to see
Spirit. Alma 37:47
47 And now, my son, see that ye take care of these sacred things (ie - my body), yea, see that ye look to God and live.
So, it is back to skinny school for me. I am getting back on the health bus, and if you will excuse me, I have an elliptical to ride.
