Then my birthday was this weekend. Now for the record, I did not go completely nuts. I did not count points either. I allowed myself a slice of my birthday cake. I allowed myself to have a few Miller 64's. We went out to eat for my birthday, I still ordered grilled chicken and I still only ate half and brought the other half home....but I also ate tater tots. I did drink Miller 64 though! LOL So I used many of my weight loss strategies. I tried to balance things. I just wasn't perfect. That's okay though.
It's my birthday, so I can have as many Rob gifs as I want!
Today is the pivotal point for me though. Will I continue to slack off and get lazy about counting points? Will I ignore my own good sense, and eat the rest of that cake in the fridge? It's so easy to do.
Or will I get right back into the good habits, that I know will help me succeed in my weight loss goals?
This is the major difference between success and failure for me in losing weight. In the past, when I have had a great deal of success in losing weight, I have been able to enjoy a day or two of indulgences, but always get right back on track the next day. I would say for the last year, I have not been able to do that.
So today, I am putting an end to the vicious cycle of failure that I've been in. I am turning things around. I indulged this weekend and that's fine. Today is a new day and I will eat the way I'm supposed to and count all of my points. I will make good choices. That is my goal for today. It's my goal every day, but around here we take things one day at a time.
