That's how I feel. UGH! I was doing OK until I went to Cabo with my sister. We were supposed to live on diet food and take walks on the beach. That's not what happened. We ate wonderful food and, while that wasn't bad in itself, it somehow turned on my "gotta eat" button and, to make a long story short, I'm back at my top weight.
The good news is that I got a treadmill for Christmas. I LOVE to walk and this is something I'm using. I don't like that it has a built in timer. It shuts off after 40 minutes, and I could/would like to go longer. I think it remembers the last workout, too, so I have to keep adjusting it because my husband's workout is different. I need to read the instruction booklet, but this is something I feel good about because I know I will do it.
I stopped coming here last year because:
1) I was tired of thinking about food and weight and diet ALL the time. I need to learn to balance.
2) I have gotten more involved in embroidery. I love embroidery, but it's not exactly something that helps keep the weight off. Nothing I really enjoy does; reading, writing, embroidery, computer stuff. It's all sitting. I can read on the treadmill (at least until I build my stamina to a faster pace and then who knows?). Again, I need to learn balance.
I need to come back and figure out how to keep track without it consuming my thoughts the way it was.
Oddly, eating is NOT one of my favorite things. That's probably part of the problem. I eat mindlessly, or with my mind on other things.
