Note to Self:

Note to Self: If you do not exercise for 5 days, the workout will be hard.
Note to Self: If your children are begging to go to the fitness center, it's been too long.
Note to Self: Good job for going!

I had a very reasonable day. I got some cleaning done, some shopping, including my husband's christmas present (HAHA honey, I'm not going to tell!). I ate well and went to Spin class. It was hard...can definitely feel it more - I'm exhausted

Tomorrow is our first meeting with the dietician. I didn't go to the behavioral therapist last week because I was having such an emotional day I didn't really want to go and hear about emotional eating. I was living it! I do love Thursdays working with the trainer. I was supposed to take a class I hadn't taken yet by Thursday and I had intentions yesterday of doing it, but my crankiness won out and I didn't go.

I've been trying to wake up and say to myself "What story are you going to write today, Jodie?" Sometimes it motivates me. Sometimes, not. The scale is okay. It was at 267.3 this afternoon which means I really haven't gained anything this last week or so of not caring so much. I am glad I don't have to put up another REGAIN! Sadly though, I'm off track to make 250 by the end of the year. If I put my butt in gear, I *might* be able to pull it off. I'm not confident though, and that's okay. I am confident that I will weigh less and that is good enough.


  1. Hey Jodie, glad you found your motivation to go to the gym. I hope you feel it every day this coming week and into the next. The question I ask myself isn't "what story do I want to write today'...I ask my self, when It comes to the day I die, what will my life have stood for. How will others have seen me? What legacy have I left. I find that very motivating. Hope tommorrow is the same as today.

  2. Jodie, hang in there. You have a goal and I believe you can do it at less half. Take it one day at a time.

    How will you feel when you reach your goal of 250?

  3. Yea, Jodie, for making it to the gym! That in itself is progress. And I'm happy for you that you haven't regained. You are still doing terrific--hang in there! Hugs!

  4. I just found your blog and I love it! I look forward to following your journey. You've done an awesome, awesome job in such a short amount of time! Keep it up! :)
