I fit in my exercise every day plus more than what I would have at home, and drank my daily water quota, but did not do as well with the eating as I would have liked. I exercised alone. My daughter did not hold up her promise, but that's okay......this is my journey for me & I'm determined to do it regardless! Everyone around me was eating crap the whole time & I wasn't in control of the meals, etc. so it made it very hard. I did pack my healthy snacks, & stuck with that for the most part, but the meals killed me. My mother-in-law did the shopping/cooking & there isn't a fruit or vegetable to be found, so I think that's why I went over most every day. I was SO hungry with all the activity, but couldn't fill up on the healthy things I should have. I did manage to lose a pound though, so I'm thrilled! I've also lost some inches. Today was the first time I've measured!
I'm getting stronger everyday & feeling like I CAN do this. I've just got to get right back on that horse when I fall off. That's what I'm learning is MOST important! I haven't failed until I stop trying!!!!!! My personality is SO NOT a quitter, but this weight thing is something I've failed at over & over ..... so this time .... I'm not quitting .... therefore I CANNOT fail! I've always heard that serious weight loss is more of a mental/emotional battle than physical, I'm starting to get that! I'm changing inside & out & ya know what? It feels darn good!
