Weaknesses Part 1

Wanna know some of my weaknesses?  Whether you do or not, here are some: (please note that this list is incomplete and will be added on to later)

eating late at night - love to do this!  Kids are in bed.  Time to de-stress.  Which of course I do by eating and watching tv.  Not always a great combination.

I can never have just one.  It's never one cookie, it's ten.  I guess that's what sugar does.  It makes you want more.  Evil, evil thing.

compare myself to others.  Does everyone do this as much as me?  Wow I think I do it really bad and I don't like it.  It's like I compare my weaknesses to others strengths. 

I pick off my kid's plates.  You know you do this too!  I read a quote on pinterest that said that the calories don't count when we pick off our kid's plate.  Oh if that were true. 

focusing on what I haven't accomplished that day.  I know this is bad.  And some days I try really hard to focus on the opposite.  It's a daily struggle.



  1. Lindsey - I think you are wonderful, beautiful, successful, and a fantastic wife and mother. I know struggling with weight loss can make you feel like everything is falling apart, but from an outsider looking in you are doing a phenomenal job. You are the best kind of friiend and I appreciate you and exactly you more then I can express. I know you will find more (I say more because you have already found lots) success in this area! You are the best, can't wait to hear more! Love ya!

    1. Thanks Alyssa! That is exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks for being such an awesome friend to me.
