I’ve had a few cigarettes over the past week and a half. I’ve also been eating worse lately, and slacking in my exercise routine. This has been reflected on my weekly weigh-in, where I’ve only lost one pound in the past four weeks. (At least I haven’t gained any.) I could cop out and say that I was stressed more than usual, that I was worried about several things, that the cravings were just too strong… but the truth of the matter is that I’ve been weak.
Rather than beat myself over it, which is my usual course of action and hasn’t proven very effective in the past, I’ll just acknowledge that I made a poor choice, and move forward with the clock reset.
My name is Ben, and I’ve been a non-smoker for ten hours hours and thirty minutes. My goal is to lose another 50 pounds before December 25th of this year, at which point I will set a new goal for next year’s weight loss.
