Dealing the Weight Loss Hand {Week 5}

Wow, I can't believe we have been at this for five weeks now! Time sure does go by fast especially when you are "happily scrapping" and creating a new you! I know many of you told me you have your cards done but haven't posted them yet. We are all anxiously waiting to see them. The cards I have seen inspire me, and I know they inspire you too. Keep up the great work everyone! Jane did get several of hers posted on 2Peas this week. They are wonderful. Here is a sampling of what she posted:

And now for this week's prompt I thought we would talk about avoiding failure. I know too many times I have started this journey only to fail. I have finally figured out that I try to do too much. I want to exercise five days a week, I avoid anything sweet, I try to be perfect. Well, it ends up being too much of a change then I fail and give up. This time, I have decided not to go "whole hog." I do eat ice cream every night. And believe me, it is NOT the low-fat stuff! It is my reward for eating great each day. I look forward to it. It keeps me from over-indulging each day. I also gave up trying to exercise 5 days a week. I only did that when I was a certified aerobics instructor! Now I only make myself workout 3 days a week. If I do more, great. If I don't, I don't stress about it or feel like a failure. It has been a great change in my successful journey. I hope you will take a moment to look at your journey this week. So, here is your challenge:

The 11th card prompt: How are you going to avoid failure doing your journey? What fun things can you keep doing that will help you avoid failure? Here are the cards I did for this fun prompt:

Have a fun and successful week, and let's see those cards girls!
