Well, back in August we moved to a new state. We got settled and all, lots of changes, and lots of different things. To make a long story short, I steadily gained weight over the last three months. I can't explain why I couldn't really slam the breaks on sooner, but I just couldn't. It has taken this long to get my act together again. For one thing, I was not weighing weekly, joints were hurting, no exercise.
So I got on the scale and got the shock of my life. The dryer wasn't shrinking my clothes after all. My new scale has to be off, no, that's not it. It was me. I had been so off of my eating plan and not checking in here.
I realize a good share of my former success was touching base here, and logging all my food and exercise. I need to treat this like it's my job.
New Year's resolution: My weight loss is my job. Taking control and responsibility for the success of this program is my job. It's no one else's job, it's mine! If I quit my job, I'm in big trouble.
Now, to get to work on losing the 20+ pounds I gained. I know what to do, I just have to do it.
