Freakin' OUT!!!!

First off, I had a ball golfing yesterday! I ended up doing my walk before I golfed, so it didn't matter that we took a cart. Unfortunately, a really bad rain storm came through around the 13th hole - it went away as soon as it came - but that broke my momentum, so my girlfriend & I just went back to the clubhouse!

So, I'm really starting to freak out about staying on plan on vacation. It is stressing me out. Where I am going - no one will try to get me to eat more than I want to, or make unhealthy choices. What is stressing me out is ME. What if I get there and just decide "screw it!"? Ugh! I really don't want to undo the little bit that I've done. Do you know yesterday I pulled a pair of pants out of the closet by accident, a pair that was too small - and I tried them on mostly thinking it would give me incentive to keep at it - and the friggin things fit! I haven't been able to wear them for well over a year. I don't want to come back to those pants not fitting again. And the worst part is, I know it is in MY control. I need to start my positive self-talk. I will stay on plan, I will stay on plan....blah, blah, blah!

Have a healthy day bloggers!


  1. Those pants FITTING might be better motivation to you than them not quite fitting yet. Consider taking them with you. If you start to feel your motivation slipping, put those pants on for a few minutes. They can be your reminder. :)

  2. Stop stressing! Gosh, I know how you feel 100%, but stressing too much will only push you over the edge. And how many times have we been pushed over the edge only to regret it right away? Just make good-ish choices, do as much physical stuff as you can, and have fun! It's a vacation for crying out loud!


  3. Where'd you go?

  4. I agree. It is very important to understand that our lives really are under our own control. Too many people blame others for their diet failures. One thing that I never let bother me is when somebody comments on my weight. I know that I'm overweight, and their comments just serve as a helpful reminder to me that I have a lot of work to do. Sometimes I actually thank them for their comments.
