Let’s agree to disagree

This is what I always tell my scale when it comes back with my weight.  Each time I step on it, I hold my breath for two reasons.  The suspense and because my stomach’s in the way.

I’m always on a diet.  My favorite is the ‘seefood’ diet.  I see food, then I eat it.  With every fad diet comes a few things in common – watch what you eat and exercise.  So if it’s that simple, then why have I spent thousands of dollars on drops, videos, pills, memberships and plans?  Because they all work!  It’s my will power that doesn’t.

So far I’ve lost 40 pounds in the last year.  I have 35 to go.  My daughter’s getting married in 4 months and there’s this cute dress she wants me to wear.  If I fall off the wagon, I will look like a pink sausage with stubs.  I know I can do this, I just need to stay strong and continue to learn more about ways to stay healthy.

What do you do when you’re tempted to eat bad food or too lazy to exercise?  Do you have any tips?
