Me and the elliptical machine at the gym have a love hate relationship. However, I am determined to not let it defeat me!!! My knees really hate that machine, so much so that I have only been able to stay on it for a minute and a half. That is the longest, but every time I am at the gym I plan on getting on it. One day my knees will not make me get off.
This same attitude is how I am approaching this weight loss deal, it will not defeat me. I may have down days I may have days I don't do really good on the calorie count. BUT I have already won because I look at things more closely now. Before I would eat if I liked it and wanted it. These days I weight my options and if I must have it I do, but in a smaller portion. This is such huge progress for me!
My sister has a saying and I always remember it when I am trying to make a decision about something. "It's a potato chip moment." Either you do or don't - nuff said.
