I am embarrassed that I haven't been back here in a year. I'm also amazed that I was at 154 pounds and don't remember it. I knew I had lost a little but didn't realize it was 10 pounds in one month. Wow!
I am back, coincidentally, in the same month I started last year.
I'm also back at 163 pounds, my starting point last year.
But ... there is one change, I've started going to the gym regularly.
It's only been two weeks, but I'm at the point where I enjoy going. I have a class that I take every Monday and I know others in the class who help motivate me. I've also taken a few other classes during the week to find the right fit for me. On days I don't take a class I walk on the treadmill for half and hour which I really enjoy, and I also pedal on a bike for 10 - 30 minutes depending on how I feel after the treadmill. I enjoy the heart monitor readouts and calories burned information on the bikes. I can put in my age and weight and it does all of the calculations for me.
So... even though I am starting again at my same weight I am ahead of last time in that I am already working out.
Can you tell I am trying to make myself feel better about not sticking to last years diet?
Also, today I started the flat belly diet. I'm not sure how I will go with it but it is very similar to how I already eat except I haven't been eating the MUFA's. So maybe it wont be too hard to stick to.
