Positive Step for Today

I woke up in a bit of a funk today. Not exactly sure why, though I have a small ideas as to a few factors.

Throughout the day I had self-doubts coming and going through my mind in regards to my weight. I want to see my weight come off and I’d like to see it happen a bit quicker than it has. This means that I have to get my food under control. I know it and I am facing it. Though, honestly, I felt like giving up today.

But I won’t and I can’t. It’s just not an option for me.
This was a day when I have to not go by feelings and instead reflect on how far I’ve come, and just believe in myself – no matter what my emotions tell me.
One thing with my food that has been seriously lacking is my water intake. Thus the cup.
I pulled out a 32 oz. green and blue insulated mug I purchased during my last Weight Watchers attempt years ago. I can drink water so easily with this cup and the straw that came with it. I took it out, filled it and the first 32 oz. is almost gone.
That is my positive step in the right direction for today.

  1. Way to go! I brought a gallon of water to work today because I needed to do more water and less diet soda. It was a success 🙂

    I go by my feelings too much. (Is that the inner brat)? I'm proud of you for not giving up, and the day is almost over. Water can play a big part in moods.

    Every little step counts.
    Even if it's just looking toward a direction.
    Then facing it, then inching toward it.
    Then one day – boom! There you go!

    oh, the dreaded water intake! I feel like I am constantly drinking water all day (well, I am actually). I drink it out of the water bottles, never thought of filling a large 32 ozer, might not feel like I'm drinking as much as I am. (great tip)
