wednesday weigh-in: week 12

Im so disappointed with myself for this past week. I feel like not only am I failing myself, but Im failing all of you who continue to follow along as I try to shed some pounds. Every week I talk about the same things: tracking, exercising, starting over, not giving up. And that last one really is true. Im not giving up. I know its now excuse, but this past week there were definitely some distractions with Easter.

Again, I know its no excuse. And I want to do this. I want to get healthier. I havent gained back any weight since Ive started this journey, and unfortunately I feel like that night has finally come.  I technically dont know yet, as my meeting is tonight. Im dreading getting on that scale. But if were being honest here, i know what I ate, i know what exercises i didnt do, i know how uncommitted I was this week. But thats just it. Whether its been 1 day, 1 week, or 4 weeks, tomorrow is another day. I will push through this. As long as I dont give up Im already doing better than I did yesterday. We cant change the past, but we sure as hell can help shape the future.

Ill make sure to update my stats as soon as I can, although I doubt they will be anything good.
Till next week......
