It's MONDAY...

and I still OP! I did fall off a little this weekend with journaling, but didn't go crazy. I was very conscious of what I was eating, and still drank my water. I was a little nervous when I got on the scale this morning, and expected a slight gain (fried chicken wings for dinner on Sat. and breakfast on Sun.). But I had a .6 lb. loss from my Sat. morning weight! Yes! That just goes to show me that don't have to be perfect, just aware and willing to make good choices. Sometimes my problem is that I feel like if I can't do something 100%, then I can't do it at all. Right now, when it comes to this lifestyle, I know I can't be 100% all the time. But 80% if better than nothing! As long as I keep TRYING, I will succeed.

School went well on Saturday. I feel like I definitely made a good choice by transferring.

I am off from job #2 today and tomorrow, and my GOAL is to get on the elliptical...FOR REAL THIS TIME! I also have that new Biggest Loser Yoga DVD I haven't tried yet.

I had another "epiphany" the other night. Something really strong within me tells me that this is my year. Even last year when I started this journey, I knew I was starting a process that would give me fantastic rewards for 2009. So thinking about that, I started thinking about 1999, another year that I felt was very transforming in my life. So much happened to me in 1999 that has totally shaped my life the way I know it. Then I went back to 1989. I was only 13 years old, but it was also a really life-changing year for me! I can remember everything that happened that year, and also believe those events changed my life and who I am today. Coincidence? I don't think so. This will be a life-changing year for me, and I know my weight loss will play an important role.


  1. Keep trying, keep journaling, keep on keeping on.

    I believe you. It IS one of those years for you.

  2. I feel like this is my year as well. That's why I set such a heafty goal!

    Keep up the good work!!!

  3. This is your year Hollie, I can't wait to see the transformation.
