Today’s title is for Shelley. Apparently she has a thing for monkeys. Here’s a monkey picture for you, Shelley:

oops, wrong monkeys, but still groovy and outa site.

Let’s try it again:

Disapproving Monkey disapproves of Fake Monkees.

Okay, enough of that monkey business! (you knew that was coming, right?)

Let’s talk about weight loss or the lack thereof.  I want to know of those of you who have lost weight or are in the process of losing weight, how much of your success was based on making the decision to change? Did you just decide one day that enough was enough and you were going to do this no matter what? And how did you keep yourself accountable to that decision? I have, more than once, made the decision to get going on my weight loss, but then life always seems to get in the way and I make excuses as to why I need a break, then I get frustrated with myself because I’m not making progress. Consistency is something I have always struggled with when it comes to losing weight and I think it is the biggest obstacle I have to get over. Is it really as simple as just deciding to do it and then…doing it every day?

Please think about this and let me know your thoughts in the comments, even you lurkers – I want to hear from you! I need some inspiration on how you tackle the tough stuff in life but keep going with your weight loss anyway!
