Day two is never hard.

Wow, great day today! Good nutrition, drank all my water. Didn't get in my activity, but I hope to include a mini gym class with my kids starting tomorrow.
Funny...the first couple of days are so easy. I think, "Hey, this is not so bad. I could totally live like this." and then WHAM! Something gets me off track. Usually the weekends, when my honey likes to treat us to a meal out. I really, really try to make good choices, but invariably, I slip up. Then I am gloomy and quit. OR I make the good choice and feel deprived. Then again, I quit.
I remember how good it felt to be thin. I really enjoyed the pool with the kids, summer clothing and glamorous evening clothes. I loved to shop, even just looking, because I knew I could wear most anything.
To motivate myself this time. I have decided to reward myself for every ten pounds. First gift to me: some nice new fragrance.
I am going to keep that memory of skinny summers and slender shopping trips to help me along the way!
