Thank goodness for second chances...and thirds...and fourths...

Because I am on my millionth. However, if I was not working on being healthier I would probably weigh significantly more and be in much worse shape. Thus, though I am not where I want to be, I am not where I used to be either so that's progress...even if it is S-L-O-W. Perhaps it is more of a lifelong process and less like a journey to a finite place (like college weight...haha).

I do have a confession to make so I will go ahead and just put it out there. I have decided that it is mandatory for me to journal all confessions. Knowing that I have to write it down might be a deterent. We will see. Back to my confession. I did ok yesterday and was so confident that I journaled it and called it a night for blogging. Then 10:30pm came around. I ended up being up until after midnight working on invitations for suprise party for the in-laws 40th anniversary. After stuffing and labeling for several hours I caved and ended up having 2 glasses of wine...ending the day by using 10 flex points instead of only 6. Argh. I really need to work hard to be to not have any projects to do later in the evening...I can justify any bad behavior after 10pm ("but since it is late and I am tired I should be able to have ____"). I will learn from this and move on. I think I will start a list of lessons learned and re-read it periodically to really make these misakes be of value to the process and not repeated later on because I "forgot".

I have done ok today (11 points so far) and have an apple and veggies for a snack later. Will post on full day's progress tonight. Have a great OP day everyone!

You can do it! I have faith in you! I, too, have begun journaling everything I am eating....maybe I will be more aware.....that is my hope, anyway!

Good Luck!!
