I Have Made a Promise...

The promise is to not step on the scale until next Wednesday. My weight just fluctuates too much and I get bummed I'm putting the scale in the closet until next Wednesday...just seven days away. I know I am dropping inches...and I am proud of that fact.
Today at work we are having a department breakfast and it's my turn to be in charge. I brought a healthy option...gorgeous oranges and flavored coffee with a package of bakery cookies thrown in for good measure. Of course I 'm not eating the cookies. But I did throw in some fresh strawberries in my protein shake.  I'm getting my blood work tomorrow so I'm going to really watch my carbs today in anticipation of a much lower A1C i really want off of Byetta!
My trainer; Drake at SNAP is working with me to reach my goals and I have a session with him on Friday after work. I believe in myself now and have come so very far from the beginning of January when I started training with him.  I was so out of shape and unhealthy back then...there is no going back...only forward! 
A quote from the movie Independence Day: "Let's kick the tires and light the fires!"
