OKay---like most---I suffered from some POST HOLIDAY gain---It was less than a 5 pound gain----but even that was enough to make me push the panic button!
We hear it over and over again----O, it is just a few pounds! But I had to remember all the times in my life when that was how it started:
"a few pounds" here---or
"I'll get started again tomorrow" or
"it's the holidays/special occasion" or
"I have worked out a lot, I can eat a few more points" or
"I have come so far, I can give myself a break today"
Well.....my weight loss has been hovering in the lower 70's region (OOOO---so close to 75 pounds gone at one meeting!)---then when at one WW meeting, I had weighed at almsot back up to the 140's with my total loss reading 69 pounds gone---I knew that officially HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!!!!!!!!! And there was no way I could keep on this track....or a few pounds would turn into a few more etc etc etc!
So, as of today the new digital scale just read 132.5---bringing me back down to where I want to be---tomorrow is weigh in day (I know, you should not check the scale too much, but I like to get an idea where I am before I got to the meeings)!
Most importantly (and I have to get off the computer and GET IT DONE) is scheduling a work out----not matter what---even a 15 minute walk! And just like we had discussed last week----even though you may feel a bit out of breath, and your heart beat is up, and you may be sweaty and tired....you never say after a work out "I feel soo depressed and lack luster right now!"
As I also wrote in my status, I had to learn that I SOOOO easily get work out boredom TOO EASILY----and since I have been staying with my mother for awhile---I have discovered her EXCERCISE ON DEMAND TV CHANNEL----if anyone has this! USE IT---even the 10 MINUTE work outs will kick you in the booty!
BEST TO ALL,
