The decorations are all put away. The kids are back in school. No more parties or potluck's on the calendar. Now to face the facts. I walked up to the scale and really didn't like what I saw. But no matter what reason I can come up with, I earned that number. Now the questions are why and what. Why did I do that to myself? Yes, cookies, fudge and mashed potatoes taste great but it isn't like I will never see the food again. Why did I go face first into the holidays and not come out until the goodies were gone? I know a part of it is, I don't like being told what to do. Even if I'm telling myself. The rest, I'm still trying to figure out. What... What am I going to do about it now. It's really easy to just wear that cone of shame on the way to Dairy Queen but that really doesn't help matters any. All I can do is go from this moment on. So what I am going to do is add more fruits and Vegis in my diet again. I am going to take a walk every day. I am going to remember what I was doing when I felt so good and liked how my clothes felt so I can do those things again. It's time to whip off the cone of shame and climb out of the pit of despair. The number on the scale today is just a new starting point.
