The answer was there all along!

Welcome to my one follower Rosalie. I am happy to have someone to share my thoughts with, but in truth I am finding that I like to journal on this blog, and would do it if no one came along. It's cathartic to get  my thoughts out and read them on this blog. I've tried journaling in the past, even getting a pretty journal and special pen. It never lasted. Tried to keep a gratitude book as Oprah suggested one day on her show. Each day write down what you are grateful for, even if it's that the day is over! Tried that too for awhile, but it never lasted. I'm seeing a lack of consistency here, and that could be the problem with my weight loss or lack of weight loss.....lack of consistenecy. If you do what you always did, you'll get what you've always gotten.

I asked Rosalie a question today, but even as I was typing, I pretty much knew the answer. Just like the paella I had at dinner Friday. I knew that wasn't the best choice for me, but I pretended it would be OK. And  like my post on covering things up, I covered up the answer in my head. I'm seeing how some of these thoughts are influencing my actions.

Thought for the day:

You've always had the power. It was there all along!


  1. Hey Pattie,

    I have found, especially in the beginning, that blogging helped me stay focused and accountable for myself. I know it will help you too and I will try to get some others over here for you. We need all the support we can get. I am here for you :-)

  2. Hello Pattie, I didn't know you had a blog I am so glad I found you. Having a blog is so helpful, I had reservations about having one but I am so glad that I started. Without the support of the bfc community I know I would have given up the bfc a long time ago. I am also here for you, have an awesome day today :)

  3. Hello fellow BFC 'dieter'! I follow Amber's blog, and love the moral support found in reading other's blogs. I'd love to have my own blog, but that would require a commitment on my part to post things that other people would read. :) I love your 'thought for the day' - what a great idea! Good luck to you and have a great day!

  4. Thanks to you all for your kind comments. I appreciate the support. It was hard to start this blog. First of all I didn't know what I was doing! Second of all, it's hard to put your problem and your weight out there for all to see. Of course there was no one to see it at first, but again it goes back to trying to cover up something. I look forward to continuing on the BFC with you all. It's our way of life and I'm grateful for all the great tips and ideas I have gotten from BFC blogs. I hope to be able to offer something in return. Enjoy the day!
