Back on the Diet Horse

So, ok, the fun of Mardi Gras has passed and its back to reality. Its time to get back on track. For some reason, I had been eating really really well the first month and a half of the new year, lost about 15 pounds, and then fell off the horse. I haven't weighed myself because I don't want to see what the scale has to say. But that's ok, because I don't need to see a number to know that I need to get on track again.

I have SO many reasons to lose weight, other than the obvious "get healthy" reason. I have a Key West vacation in November, am in my cousin's wedding in October, and should really be in shape to kick my nemesis' ass if need be. Plus, although it is still cold here in Jersey Girl land, summer is right around the corner and it'll be time for shorts before you know it.

So - once Princess wakes up from her nap, I will be walking in the park as exercise today. And I will control all the food I eat today. And, I will go back to one day at a time, focusing on little successes rather than huge looming goals.

What a boring post. Can't we go back to talking about parties and good times and drinks?

It's not boring. Remember, dont keep snacks in the house, then you wont want to eat it!!

i agree it's not boring - but as it happens I am going out drinking tonight with all my best friends here in Oslo, so no dieting for me at the moment...

Just found your site - I was in N.O. recently, not even Mardi Gras, and I'm just starting to recover. A different world down there...

Summer is breathing down my back. I am thinking of sucking air for the next 2 months. LOL. No really.

Just found your blog via Cori! I love the pink.

You are never boring. Never. It is always wise to focus on one day at a time and YES, celebrate each little success by simply being good to yourself.

Hi Jersey Girl! Thanks for stopping by today!

I'm trying to drop some lbs too... I'd be set if it weren't for sugar. I wish I could give it up like cable tv...

Oh girl, it could be worse. You could need to lose as much as me! :)

I was doing pretty well too after getting through my daughter's birthday party. Got on the scale this morning to find nine pounds gone since I started, and then this evening my husband takes me to look at a house (god help me, he's getting antsy and wants to move--I admit it would be nice) and then we go get Taco Bueno. I couldn't resist. I had a week moment.
