Need an extension on my deadline

Friday, April 30, 2010 at 9:26 AM filed under Weight Loss postings
Well, I was doing well for a while. Really well! I was so impressed, but I think I got  a little freaked out about achieving my goal. Why is that? Why am I afraid of succeeding? I'm not sure, but I know that I am the only one who can be held responsible for the slippage I've suffered in the last few days. I was caving to every craving, knowing full well that I was jeopardizing my success. A few small bags of potato chips here, a few extra pieces of cheese there and there you have it: I did not make my goal weight this morning.

I had hoped to reach 213 lbs by today, but this morning I weighed in at 214.8 lbs. So, what do I do now?

1. Acknowledge the reasons I didn't reach my goal (I was afraid to succeed; I lost my focus; I let myself eat just about anything I craved. Check.)

2. Decide on a plan to reach this goal (Regain focus; embrace the idea of meeting this goal; find a suitable revised deadline. Check.)

3. Choose new deadline (Weigh in at 213 lbs on the morning of Monday, May 3. Check.)

Okay, so I think I've taken care of business. I will need to examine why I sabotaged my own efforts, but for now, I'm moving forward. I have 3 days in which to carefully plan my meals and exercise with the intention of losing this last 1.8 lbs by Monday morning.

Go Lynnery! (Why don't we have a cheerleader emoticon? I could use one of those right now. LOL!)
