I can't believe how my weight fluxuates by week! I used to think it was just hormones, but I really can't figure that comparing my calander. One thing I've noticed is that when my hips & back are particularly achy, my weight seems to be higher. Water retention??
Today I started up FOUR POUNDS from last week. I took a 20 min. walk and it killed my hips the entire time.
Since I began, I haven't lost a thing - in fact, I gained quite a bit since I dropped in a long time ago. I don't think I ever stuck with anything I started (hmmm... think that's it??) One thing I finally figured out is that I made "A" goal -- an end goal. I never gave myself small goals along the way, so it's easy to be overwhelmed or not look at "just today" because that goal is so far off in the future.
That has to change.
I made a goal to reach 220 by the end of July. Of course, I made that goal last night before I realized I was up four pounds! I'm hoping that's water weight... and I"m NOT changing the goal already. I will walk daily, drink my water, cut back on the sugar, and listen to my body when I'm eating (another big problem of mine as I love food).
I can do this!
