Wow - it's been a while!!

Monday, November 29, 2010

I can't believe that I haven't blogged since July. I also can't believe that I said that I didn't want to see 140 again, and yet, here it is. I know that I have been trying to fool myself, thinking that I'm doing enough to maintain my weight since I hit goal, but really, my brain isn't that stupid. For every extra little bit of sauce I had on my dessert, I knew I was adding calories. For the popcorn with extra butter yesterday, I knew that there were extra calories there, too. And the gravy, and the wine, and the ........ All these "and the's" are adding up, and so my goal size pants are starting to get tight!!

Well, as of today, this is coming to an abrupt HALT!!!! I WILL track my calories every day again, I WILL drink all my water, I WILL get some extra exercise into my day! I have worked way too hard to slip back into my old fooling myself ways - or perhaps more accurately, my ignoring myself ways. I'm so much smarter than that, and I am so happy with myself being down so much over the last year.

I am going to go to my tracker, and put in my new goal weight, and I'm going to stick with the system again. No more thinking I'm ok to do it on my own once I get to goal weight. SP has helped me get there once, and they will help me get there again.

Here's to starting fresh!!

    I am with you, sister. I am on a bit of a skid too, that I want to turn around. Why is there that left-brain right-brain conflict? It just makes sense to do what we know works, but once in a while the urge to take it easy just takes over. Lets get active again and regain the place we want to be.
