I could go on and on about how I have failed once again. And I could talk endlessly about what I would like to do to my scale which would probably resemble the copy machine clip out of the movie Office Space, rap music and all playing in the background. Apparently my scale is 4 pounds off from the doctor’s scale and it is NOT in my favor. So……here I was beating myself up for gaining 13 pounds over the last 3 months since I started my new job. At 211 lbs again? BUT WAIT!!! No, I am not at 211 lbs, I am REALLY at 215 lbs thank you doctor’s scale!
I really love that moment at the doctor’s office where they ask you to step up on the scale and then the nurse gives you that big smirk and says, “Oh, I see you put on a few pounds from your last visit.” “Yes, yes indeedy I have, thank you for noticing that.”
Instead of talking about my failures, I am going to share my successes:
- I turned down pizza today (yes, this is a miracle)
- I have convinced my husband to diet along with me (he is not a happy camper)
- I have jumped back up and I am trying again, I just can’t stand to be defeated.
