Am I going round and round or up and down? Both are bad, as I have never seemed to have the kind of success I had hoped for with weight loss.
Why is it that while I can be successful in so many aspects of my life...this one has ALWAYS beaten me? I won't give up though. I will keep doing what I need to do to get this weight off...obviously what I did before GOT the weight off, I just can't ever KEEP the weight off...so, that will have to be where I put the most work!
I now have a new knee...arthritis, they say...but we all know that if my weight had been lower, chances are that I wouldn't have had to go through that surgery at the age of 57...so, before they start replacing any of parts of me...I'm going to do this...it can only help me in so many ways!!
Reply if you have some advice or comments, please!
That's me in the front of the kayak on the left...more of that...and maybe I WILL keep off the weight, huh?

It's been a LONG time now...and I can't seem to get back that initial feeling of "I can do this" that I had back when I joined SP. Everything was going along fine...and then stress and daily life took over -- husband's stroke along with other stressors...and I've never been able to get back to the place I should be!
I start posting what I eat each day...and stop around lunch time...I discuss walking with my friends ...and then don't do it. (I've used my bad knee as the excuse many times) I've now stocked the house with stuff I shouldn't have because my son is back living at home...honestly, I think I eat more of it than he does.
I know my health is suffering because of my inactivity and overeating...yet I'm not proactive like I should be!
Writing this down might help. When I posted what I ate, recorded my walks, wore a pedometer, and read the SP articles, I was successful! NEED TO DO THAT AGAIN...

OK...if this is what I would have to eat all the time, I would have NO PROBLEM with weight loss. But, unfortunately, most of the food I eat looks much more appetizing than this.
I have never understood my failure at maintaining a healthy weight. Heck, I can't maintain it, because I never reach it. I don't remember one time in my life when I was happy with my weight (except for one). At that time, I got there easily, with my doctor's help and with medication...REDUX...later, found to cause health problems and pulled from the pharmacy! How dumb was that? I should have realized it was too good to be true... And after I got off that medication, the weight came back.
I'm a reasonably bright woman...educated, hard-working...but I can't seem to make this work! The temporary good feeling caused by a plate of comfort food seems to be more important to me than the good feeling that comes from knowing that you're taking care of yourself...and you look pretty good!
I'm not giving up...I need to regroup...hoping that warmer weather will entice me to get back to walking and exercising.
And NO, I didn't eat that little bird in the picture. I'm only posing for this picture! (I said I was reasonably bright, right???)

Here I am in France earlier this month...eating normal portions...a little wine with dinner...walking EVERYWHERE.
Yet, when I come home...why do I always revert back to old habits...eating in front of the TV, snacking when I know I shouldn't, walking NOWHERE.
I'm an intelligent woman...in my 34th year of teaching. Yet, when it comes to taking care of myself, I'm doing an awful job of it.
I've lost the same 30 pounds so many times I've lost count. Got to realize that I'm worth it! We all need to realize that we're worth it!!
