Tracking Resolution Thursdays


Okay, we’re only on day 3 of the new year, and already I’m struggling like crazy with this weight loss mission. I swore I wasn’t going to eat any chocolate, and what did I do… I ate a couple scoops of chocolate frosting. I have noticed a major trend that I eat sweets when I’m extremely emotional over something. Otherwise, for the week so far, I‘ve done pretty good. 

I know I’m not alone with this issue. There are millions of people who struggle with it as well. However, what I don’t want is to be one of those millions of people who rolls over and croaks before I’m even 35. I do want to be one of those people who nips this issue in the bud and makes the changes that need to be made to live a longer healthier life. 

(Now there is NO guarantee that I will even if I do manage to lose this weight. My mom fought hard to stay skinny for most of her life, and she kept me on a rigid diet. She still died at age 56 from cancer. That’s twenty more years to live though!) 

Weight gain doesn’t happen overnight, and losing it sure as hang isn’t going to happen overnight either. As the saying goes, “It’s far easier to put it on than it is to lose it.” 

I tried like crazy to create a blog hop so that we could all create accountability for our New Year’s resolutions for 2013. We could blog about our success and our failures (as my case was) for each week. Then we could give each other encouragement to dust our behinds off and “get back on the horse” to make those resolutions more than just something we were going to talk about doing and actually do them!! Anyone want to create that and let‘s get that hop started?? Please let me know if you do it!! 

This is my goal way to look. I know I won’t look exactly like that, but I definitely can come close. 
How are your resolutions going??

  1. I didn’t make any resolutions per se (I have a terrible track record with them anyway). I decided to have a theme that would be my mantra for the year. I chose “Get Moving”. I need to literally exercise and get moving that way, but I also need to get moving on so many different fronts, too. This sort of encapsulated all of it for me.

    Good luck with your resolutions. I’ll be following along!! 🙂
