Day 407-411

Blogging keeps my head in the game by keeping myself aware. Blogging everyday prevents the "ostrich syndrome". I didn't get obese overnight, it slowly kept on me because I stopped Caring, stopped being aware. By sticking my head in the sand and not looking, that candy bar doesn't count, right? If I don't log the calories/fat in that fried chicken, it won't count right? I lied and cheated myself out of years of family activites & memories because I was too obese to take part and enjoy them.

The last several days I let myself fall. The first clue was that I stopped blogging so I wouldn't have to account for my actions. The second clue was that I hid from the scale. I know that many bloggers weigh once a week. I have to do it EVERY morning. It's not so I can beat myself up over fluctuations, it's so I am forced to look at the consequences (good or bad) for my triumphs or mistakes. Pounds will never creep up if I remain vigilant.

I slipped. I fell. I am back. I began tracking my food again yesterday. My surgery is only a week away. Physical activity will be absent while I recover, making healthy choices even more important.


  1. Good luck. And take care with the surgery. Hugs!

  2. Welcome back-and best of luck with the surgery!
