Yes, I know. It's been a long time. I've hit a bit of a rough patch. But I have not given up. I am still fighting the good fight. I have tried not to let a slip turn into a slide. It's hard to believe that I was just 2 pounds away from goal weight just 3 months ago. I am now 10 pounds away. I am disappointed with myself.
Losing weight is hard. In the beginning it was SO easy. The pounds just dropped off. I weigh now what I did in January!! For 10 months I have been struggling. Stress has played a HUGE part lately. When I am stressed and overwhelmed, I tend to eat not so healthy and I certainly don't feel like exercising (even though I know in my brain exercising would make me feel better).
Not really sure what the answer is. Keeping the course? Staying on track? Don't let a slip turn into a slide? Certainly all these things will help. (But so would having my jaw wired shut but let's be realistic).
I know most of it is that I am a bit toooooo comfortable. A little cake here, a candy there, an "adult beverage" from time to time - all things I never allowed myself in the beginning. Maybe THAT'S the solution. I need to go back to my basics. And maybe go back to being simply crazy.
Hey - it worked before...
