It's times like this(an upcoming holiday weekend) that make me want to throw in the towel and have a handful of jelly beans. I am so very busy at work, running from one after school activity to the next, trying to keep my house in some sort of order...sometimes I just want to relax....and by this, I mean relax my diet.
For some reason, when life gets tough my first thought is that a Cadbury Cream Egg will comfort me. I have heard this voice one too many times this week, so I decided to put my thoughts on paper. I learned about the benefits of making a list of all the reasons you want to lose weight when reading the Beck Diet. Confession time...I never actually took the time to sit down and do this.
I decided to put a spin on my list so I not only wrote down my "Pros" for losing weight...but I also thought it was necessary to write down my "Cons" which are a direct result of giving into daily temptations.

My hope is that they will help me to remember that the path that I am on, though uncomfortable at times, is the one I need to be on in order to live the life that I desire.
