HFH: Fat Ticker Friday - post candy....

Hot for the Holidays

I'll check in first this week before posting this week's theme...

I thought it would be a horrid week. I really feared I was going to regain the three pounds I lost. I was pretty sure I wasn't going to actually loose anything & I was right in that regard. However, the scale only showed a 1/2 pound gain this morning. I'm actually okay with that. I made a huge mistake this week....I walked down the aisle in the grocery store where all the discounted Halloween candy was located. I bought not one...not two...but THREE bags of the stuff!!! All peanut butter cups which are my biggest weakness! I still have four left in my freezer.

So I'm still making slow progress but I'm down ten pounds from my highest weight so I'm happy with this. Baby steps....


This week's project was a fill in the blank: My life would be better if I had more self-control. I need the self-control to say no to that candy. I need it to make the changes I know I should be making instead of following the same old same old - which is not healthy or helping.
I need to focus on each day & rely on God to give me the help I need because I'm certainly not succeeding in this on my own strength. Let's see how the next week goes....


  1. Ugh, sweets is my down fall too. Reese's no less is diffidently my favorite! Good luck, I know you can do it!

  2. Oh, I hear you!
    The candy got me too!

    Good luck to both of us next week!


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
