Thought for the Day

I've been struggling with some healthy issues in the past 2 or 3 weeks that have really derailed me. It seems I've hit a wall at 170 and sort of collapsed there. (You can put that weight by my name on the sidebar, Tristi.) I've been down to 168.5 in the very recent past, but I can't seem to get back to it. Some days I just want to give up and stay in bed with a good book and large quantities of comfort food. There's just too much to overcome.

So today I was working and my team manager sent out the daily update and included this quote that really struck a cord in me.

"Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing." Abraham Lincoln (who was possibly the skinniest president until Obama came along)

I resolve to succeed at losing weight. Even if it kills me. Though it should have the opposite effect.

My goal for today is simple. I have four 16.9 oz bottles of water sitting on my desk. I've already started drinking one of them. I will finish them all before I am done with work today.

Go, Marta! I hope you did drink all that water - it's really not that much, and I feel sooo much better when I'm well hydrated. I find that my body mistakes thirst for "snack-attack." :o)
