By the way, all the trees I planted last November are alive and well.
I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I got on the bathroom scale and weighed 160.0. I reached my goal! Tomorrow is our official weigh-in, but if I weigh even one ounce more tomorrow, I am going to write down today's weight!
My daughter doesn't realize it, but she has inspired me to maintain my weight in the future. It came from a conversation we had.
Me: "The trouble with the Atkins diet is that I've never seen anyone keep the weight off after they're done with it."
Rachel: "But have you seen ANYBODY who didn't gain it all back, on ANY kind of diet?"
I take that as a challenge. I'm intend to be the one to show the world you don't have to gain back the weight. Of course, since I'm not on a "diet", it shouldn't be too hard. Yes, I have said that before. Just remember, failure isn't final.
