The verdict is in...

Friday, April 19, 2013

I'm guilty.
Guilty of not trying hard enough.
Guilty of not tracking.
Guilty of not weighing in every day.
Guilty of not drinking my water every day.
Guilty of not exercising every day.
Evidence found in the fact that I gained 5 poounds.

Now I have to do the time.
I am sentenced to losing 10 pounds by the end of May (6 weeks)
I must track my activity, food and activity every day.
I must weigh in every day.
I must drink 6 - 8 cups of water every day.
I must do 1 form of exercise, beside my walk, every day.
Reward will be that I will lose 6 pounds.

I know making this like a punishment, and some people may say that this is not going to work but being nice to myselkf does not work. Telling myself that its okay to make mistakes and I will do better tomorrow does not work. Dr. Phil would ask me "How's that working for you?". It's not.

It's time for tough love. If I love myself then I have to tell myself to get my butt in gear and do it. No more Mrs Nice Girl.

    Loved how you put it. Here is a "get out of jail card" that can only be used when you feel you deserve to use it. You are doing a great job at self talk which will lead to your success. Keep on thinking positive.

    That is really motivational! Some people tell me I shouldn't reward myself, either, but I think it's just whatever keeps you motivated, and getting to dine out every two weeks is what does it for me, so who else really has anything to say about it? *grin*
    Keep up the great work!
