Wrong Weigh

Is This the Best You Can DoThey say that honesty is the best policy.  If this is true, why does it seem to be so difficult to be honest with ourselves?  Maybe this is not such a struggle for all of you, but I am really battling with it right now.  I have no problem being honest with all of you; unfortunately that is not as beneficial to me as being honest with me would be.

I had a great conversation with a good friend at my Weight Watchers meeting on Friday and that conversation really opened my eyes to the fact that I’m not being completely honest with myself.  This friend reminded me that I know how to do the program and that if I do the program (honestly) there is no reason that it shouldn’t work.  The truth is I know she’s right.  So that conversation had me really evaluating what I am actually doing for the rest of the weekend.

As I am sure you have already guessed I was up again this week by 1 lb.  While one pound is not the end of the world, I am inching in the wrong direction and when I’m not doing that, I am barely managing to maintain.  Early in the year I had told you that I wanted to be at my goal weight by my three-year anniversary with Weight Watchers.  Here I am just a few weeks away from that day and I am still 50+ lbs. away from my goal weight.

Weight 8.29.14

So what am I going to do to solve my weight loss problem?  After all, the harsh reality is that I am the only one in control of the outcome of my story.  Job one is to really start being honest with myself about what I am eating and whether or not I am accurately measuring it and accounting for it.  I think the other important key for me is to be honest with the people closest to me about my struggles and enlist their help when possible.

I am so ready to be done losing weight that I have been feeling desperate to try new eating plans and I am doing everything but just eating like I should and counting points.  No wonder I’m not losing weight, right?  I love the life I have very much and I only want to see it get better and better as I complete my weight loss journey and maintain my new healthy weight.  My focus this week is to stop self-sabotaging and get busy doing the things that I already know will work and asking the people closest to me to help me be accountable to myself.

I never dreamed the last portion of my weight loss journey was going to be this difficult but I know one thing for sure; I will NOT quit until I reach my goal!!!

Always Do What You Always Did


  1. A few weeks back I read about your success when you followed diligently. I know you have it in you.

    I admire your honesty. Now you will be honest with yourself also.
