Time Flies

Ever notice how fast time seems to go?

I've spend SO MANY years talking about losing weight and basically doing nothing about it.  I can remember thinking in the winter, "If I start now, I can easily lose 30 lbs. or so by the time summer hit when it's time to buy a new swimsuit."  I'd make up my mind, I was going to do it!  The weeks would pass and I would still think, "Well, there is still time."

Then all of a sudden, summer would be there. I'd be making lists for what to bring on vacation, planning summer BBQ's and parties...having lost no weight.  Full of regret. 

Was it already summer?  Wow!  That was fast!

It seems like losing weight takes FOREVER.  We check the scale weekly, or sometimes even daily (guilty!), and it just doesn't seem to move. 

Well, time is going to go on at the same rate whether we are dieting or not.  Let's not let another 3 months, or 6 months or a year go by without doing something about it. Let's start NOW. 

We will FEEL so much better and LOOK so much better. 

You won't later regret if you start now, however, you WILL regret if you don't. 

Slimmer This Summer Challenge. If this sounds like something to get you jump started or back on track, then email me and let me know. 


  1. Thanks for the comment above the capes. You can buy it at the
    Pip and Bean Etsy store. If you do buy please telll her you found them at House on Ashwell lane.

    Here is the link to the store.

  2. You're absolutely right!! I will never regret doing it NOW!
    I can't believe I keep forgetting to come here for yummy food ideas. That's my goal for the summer, to come here and find new treats.
    I love the idea of the summer challenge, but can't commit to the tracking at this point. I'll try to come and support everyone though and I'll definitely be working it myself.

  3. Keep going, you're going to have a great list of challengers. It'll be fun to think up what I want to challenge myself with.
    Take care Debbi and have a great weekend.

  4. I'm inspired each time I visit. You go girl!!

  5. Well I am checking the scale daily myself, sometimes even more than once each day to make sure I got it right, I know it kinda sucks but it gives me solace that at least I am not gaining any weight during the day (apart from what I eat) which is a relief.
