I am being kinder to myself.

Well yesterday was weigh in day,
and I am down another 4 pounds
which makes a total of 12 pounds for the first month
of my program.
I was thrilled although a part of me
wants it to be more,,,,
How silly is that, but you see I am used to going
on crazy diets where I would lose and then gain it all
back and plus more.
This is the first time that I have been 
diligent about  it every day!
One of the things I have been learning is that
my justifications of well just this one time,
or putting off until tomorrow what
I should be doing today
is not the right attitude to get
the job done so to speak.
It is amazing to me how many times a day
I stop myself from falling into my old habits,
The good thing is that I am stopping them,
That and any negative thoughts.
I am the one that has to take care of me.
It is my choice, my decision to stick to this
so I can benefit from my actions.
I Don't have a goal weight,
I have a goal of getting as healthy as I can be.
I have a goal of living my life to the fullest.
I have a goal of skydiving when I turn 50,
and today I am positive I will  do this.
Have a great weekend.
Until next time,


  1. Hello love-]
    you are amazing! I love your spirit and your diligence. You give me hope!
    Love Gail

  2. Way to go cinner, you are doing just fine and your goals are smart and reasonable......:-)Hugs

  3. skydiving is such an interesting and wonderful goal! wahoo! my son and i did that together once. we were smiling from the adrenaline for at least an hour afterwards, so funny and exhilarating!

  4. Cindy...that's awesome. I know what you mean about wanting to live life to the fad crazy diets..just normal healthy anfpd being good to yourself. hey I'm standing on the sidelines cheering for you.....hope you can hear me

  5. I've always heard that the slower that you lose the weight, the more likely you are to keep it off. I think four pounds is amazing Cinner. And guess what? I just got the O.K. to exercise again since my surgery. I am actually excited about it! Seems like we're both heading in the right direction. Love Di ♥

  6. I'm happy for you, Cindy.
    This "speaks" to me...and you are doing much much better than me.
    You are encouraging me through your blog. Continued success to you.
    Hugs and love,

  7. Cinner,

    Here’s to you and your progress, your diligence, and “living your life to the fullest”.

    Be proud, my friend.

  8. 12 pounds for a month is excellent. Just stay focused and keep going. Before you know it, you'll be at a happy weight for yourself and skydiving.

  11. Tammie thanks for telling that story about you and your son...I just hope I can do it with my Cataplexy. I will need someone to pull the cord for me
