On Memorial Day, of course, I enjoyed myself with some hamburgers, baked beans and even a couple pieces of birthday cake. But luckily at the end of the week, I have taken off what I put on and then some. So I'm really happy.

The goal of meeting 50 pounds by the end of the month is in sight and totally reachable. I'm even hoping to maybe go a little bit beyond that this month.

mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none"> color:black">This week I did run into some pretty huge temptations. My kids wanted to go to the movies. My huge downfall has always been the popcorn and pop. Before, I could down a whole large bag of popcorn with extra butter all by myself and a large pop. This time, I somehow managed to sit through the whole movie with my kids munching away next to me, and I didn't even have one.

Just keep telling myself, it's only a little burn and it will soon be over and I will feel better about what I've done.

mso-layout-grid-align:none;text-autospace:none"> color:black">Forget the 100 pounds at the end of the year. My true goal is to be down 120 pounds.  And right now, nothing is unachievable. I'm headed in the right direction and I don't think anything or anyone can stop me.
