CRASH........did You hear that? Actually very possible that you felt it - it was the sound of the Podgy Princess falling off the wagon and bumping her head on the way.
Big break, and BIG weight gain.
Several factors in play, both emotionally and physically. The Podgy Princess has been battling several mental dragons all by herself - one would think that with not one but two Princess around the place that she would never need to dirty her finger nails again, but of course life is not really like that.
However she has pulled up her ever tightening big girl pants and has once more climbed onto the horse and is hoping that this time it all works out for her.
The Podgy Princess, woke and rubbed her eyes. Sat up feeling dazed and a little stunned. She knew she simply had to face things and get on the scales again. It had felt a bit groundhog day lately. The Podgy Princess would start dieting, then have to stop dieting, she would have lost 7lbs dieting and then gain 21lbs in the following 2 weeks that it took her to fully get back on the horse. Not helped by the clumsy nature of the Podgy Princess and her poor health of late.
She decided to stick her head back below the covers both physically and mentally, She closed her eyes and thought to herself "where is my fairy godmother?" She felt slightly peeved that despite being a princess she never had gotten those 3 wishes that fairy-tails are so keen to suggest that she should be entitled to. She pondered what she would have wished for this morning had she woken to find that she in-fact was the proud owner of 3 wishes, She realised that her second and third wishes would be to be slim and healthy. She gave herself a mental slap and realised that this is the very reason why it was a good job that she never did have 3 wishes granted to her, as she would simply waste them, as she actually had the power to grant those wishes to herself, she just had to put some time and effort into them.
She allowed herself a few moments to think about what her first wish would have been, which would have been to have woken up beside Prince Charming, she did very much miss him.
She adjusted her big girl pants, and got out of bed. She had a number in her head of what she thought the scales would say. They didn't. And not in a good way. Her mood dropped like a stone, and she felt a little hard done by, as she really did not feel that she number on the scales reflected on how she had been eating lately, she had also started to try and be a little more active and do some walking.
She lifted up her chin, and decided that the only way to deal with this was head on.
The Podgy Princess decided that she should set herself some goals for the day, and take it one day at a time. And look at ever single pound lost as a small victory.
Todays goals are
* To only eat delicious diet food (up to 4 portions)
* To drink 3 litres of water
* To exercise adequately to burn 600 calories
