I was about to title thos post “Twas that night before the week twelve weigh in” when a drop down box appeared to give me the option of using a title I’d used before. It would appear that I had already used the title “Twas the night before weigh in” I guess I’m not very creative. I’m over it.

Exhaustion is winning over me today. I’m going to bed early which should bode well for the morning weigh in and measurement. I don’t know that I really have much of anything interesting to share tonight. I spent all day cooking with my mum and it will be a good week for food.

I have to make a new weight and measurement chart because the one I’ve been using only went to 12 weeks. I don’t know if I did that thinking that I might not make it, or if I did it because only twelve columns fit on the page. I’ll go with the latter.

On a completely different note, I got a manicure and pedicure this weekend as a reward for having hit 25 lbs lost and I realized that had I been using these rewards as motivation, it never would have been sufficient. It seems a much better way to go about it is just to do such things along the way without the stipulations of having to have lost so many pounds. If I’m only going to get to 50lbs lost to get a Spa Treatment, what do I do after that? What’s my motivation then? No, that’s not a good way to do the thing. I should let myself get a Spa Treatment just because I enjoy it and it will be a little sweeter for the fact that I am enjoying being in my body a little more each day.

25lbs lost!!! YayYAYAYAYAY!

I think you are right about the rewards. For me, this whole "process" has been about loving myself a little more, taking a little better care of my body, that includes seemingly small things like manicure and pedicure. :o) Actually, for me it includes allowing myself to buy myself body wash special for me instead of just sharing a bar of soap because its cheaper. Or allowing myself to buy underwear in singles rather than in a package of 8 because they are cheaper.

You're worth it!
