I invited you along on my last weight loss journey and, well, here we go again. No, I haven't gained it ALL back, but I've gained about half back. Yeah, I know, it's ridiculous. Unfortunately, I am an emotional eater and this past spring/summer was an emotional roller coaster for me.
I had gained ten pounds in the spring, but was still pretty happy with where I was. Going to Europe was actually beneficial; because of all the walking I lost three pounds. But, once we got back I gained 15 pounds very quickly.
I finally went to a Weight Watcher's meeting last week and found that I was 25 pounds over my goal. All week I thought about it, but couldn't get my head into it. Today when I weighed in at the meeting...I had gained another pound and a half. Yep. So I decided I needed to bring in the big guns, ie. public humiliation. Just kidding, but I do need more accountability than the lady who weighs me at Weight Watchers. I don't care what she thinks. I don't even like her. But, I do care what you few who read my blog think, so I'm using that as motivation.
I know what I need to do and I just haven't had it in me to do it. With your help I think I can. I need to lose at least 26.5 pounds and 2-3 dress sizes. What I'm working on this week is writing my food down in my tracker and drinking all the water I need to drink-10 glasses. I'm not good about drinking at all, so that's always hard for me, and plus it means a lot of trips to the bathroom until my body gets used to it.
I've let my exercising slip, too. Where once I worked out six days a week, it's usually only about 3-4 times a week now that I exercise. So I have to make sure I get at least 30 minutes in everyday. Those are my goals for this week. Next Wednesday I'll tell you if I accomplished them or not and what the scales said. Thanks for being my support group.
