I hate excuses. yet I allow myself to do it. Why? Is the alternative beating myself up? Because I don't want to do that either.
One good thing, even though I didn't exercise, I stayed OP and I didn't think of it as "falling off" the wagon or having to start fresh. It just a new day. 80% of the time, I make the right choices. my goal is to improve that to 90% of the time. That's a pretty good batting average if you look at it that way and I am going to try and be positive and look at what I have accomplished instead of what I haven't.
I wrote about this the other day on the WW Core Board, my goal is to maintain my weight loss, not lose the weight. It's to keep it off. I can't and won't do that successfully if I don't get my attitude in check. So if it takes me a year, then so be it. I won't be a slave to the number on the scale.
