The Beginning of the Diet Pact

Almost 3 years

On Tuesday it will be 3 years since I started this diet pact.  I have managed to keep off 50+ pounds in 3 years. I have exercised more in the last 3 years than the previous 10 (most likely, because I didn't keep track).

This week I hit an all time low (for this month) at 196, so I was one pound away from my 5 pound goal for the 25th of March.  This morning I'm back up to 197.2 so the scale sucks.... and I looked back and since the 3rd of this month I've lost....a half a pound.  Meh.  Or maybe I should look at it as; I haven't gained anything! even through Valentine's Day!

I have 5 weeks left until the 25th of March and I want to be well below the 195 range so there will be no 5 am surprises!

My goals this week are to exercise 5 times (which I did last week) and log my food for at least 5 days and be honest about what I eat.  There is no skipping hard work and watching what you eat.... nope none. sigh.

I am excited that it has been almost 3 years and I'm excited that I've kept off 50+ pounds.  I am looking forward to this week exercise and diet because I know I can do it.

Now, I'm off to buy cupcakes for my hubby's birthday.  My personal goal for that is to only eat half of one. Yes, it can be done.  I've done it before. :)
