After reading Tired's blog today, I realize that with my lifestyle and social activities, that a regimented weight loss plan doesn't seem to work for me. I don't have time to log my calories or attend a WW meeting or count points or go to some other weight loss thing. I'd rather be quilting or doing something I want to do. I lost weight a few years ago on the Sonoma Diet and I am trying to get back to that. It is so simple, just use the right size plate and eat the right foods, no sugar, no white food products, etc. I lost 18 pounds and kept it off for a while until I decided to go off and do something else because I wasn't losing fast enough. Even last year, I lost 8 pounds kind of doing that diet and haphazardly counting calories and logging in.
As soon as I started back with WW, I started gaining agin. I think I have permission to eat a lot and I did. So now I am back to veggies and whole grains and we will see. you have to know what you can do and want to do. I still want to lose weight. I still want to be thinner so I will work on it. And I'm not going to get frustrated when weight loss stalls and the scale doesn't move because I'm reasonably certain this will happen. Haven't had a beer since Lent started and not much wine either so that ought to help.
Saturday is ridiculous. We have a birthday party at 3:00, a cocktail party at 4:00, a wedding at 5:00 and a Big party with lots of food starting at 6:00. Something has to go. We have to attend the latter 2 so the first two, forget it.
I had my teeth cleaned this morning and then had an appointment with a prior client. Instead of working on her project, I came home and started sewing. Then I just got back from picking up the dog from the vet. She is evidently experiencing anxiety as she pants all the time so we came home with meds. Great, two of us on meds. Tonight I am attending a Facebook Education class at the Chamber at 5:30 so I stopped at subway and got a healthy BMT with oil and vinegar. I'll have to do the project tomorrow. Later.
