1.4 more pounds gone. 62.2 pounds total.
It's coming off slowly. I'm responsible for this slow loss.
I'm still missing my fire. I try to summon it up every week.
The problem is that I don't summon it up every day or even every moment. I have these little arguments within myself. Part of me decides I'm going to eat something I shouldn't and the other part meekly tells me that I shouldn't do it. Unfortunately the undisciplined fat part of me is louder and bossier. She usually wins.
I was talking with my sister a few weeks ago. She was suggesting ways to motivate myself. I'm going to use one of her ideas.
I have 15.6 pounds to lose to get to my next -10% goal. I'm giving myself until April 15th to make that goal. I'm putting my money where my mouth is. If I fail, I'm going to send $50 to a local radio host for him to donate to the charity of his choice. Most everything about him is the opposite of me. I can only imagine who he'd give my money to. $50 buys a lot of Medifast or new clothes. I have every reason to keep from giving him my money.
And along the way, I still have that spa day to look forward to.
Discovery of the week: Zevia soda. It's a nice treat.
