YOU CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF WITHOUT CHANGING YOUR LIFE!
I'm disillusioned. I'm at the point with all diets I have ever been on that I am totally frustrated. I lost 2 pounds, then another I thought, now I am back up again. SIGH! It would be time to give up had I not made a committment to myself to do this and finish the race. I know I'm probably eating too much. This week, my calorie intake was up a little higher than my goal a couple of days and right at the goal the rest of the time. I would put my nutrition tracker public if I could figure out how to do so.
I have not started regular exercise yet and I know that this would help so please don't tell me to do this. In 34 days, shouldn't I have lost weight anyway? I have taken the dog for a walk most days and I've done a few things and I walked 3 miles last Saturday so I'm not totally a slug. In addition, I struggled with my depression this month and at times like these, all my energy goes to keeping me on a level keel. I do plan to walk tomorrow, at least 3 miles again. I will have 300 plus minutes in for the month.
I have reviewed my goals and I am meeting them except weight loss. If I'm to lose 30 pounds by the end of July, something needs to happen. As I said before, weight sticks to me like glue and it is darn hard to lose and I'm about to ditch the effort.
On the other end, I have kept my goal of leaving desserts and sweets for special occassions. Thank God for that. My husband's birthday is Monday and I know we will have cake and ice cream on Sunday and probably go out for dinner. I already feel like I ate too much and it hasn't even gotten here yet. Hope I get some feed back and encouragement.
