Hi everyone! Hope everyone is having a week! Today I am starting to get back on track. I have been so bad for the last 3 months and gained 8 pounds. Went from 142 to 150 in three months. How did I do it? I went auto pilot on chocolate. & Cookies too! I had to rethink about what I was doing wrong, and change a few things. For the past months I have been selling items on ebay, and instead of doing my exercise first, I end up packaging packages first.
Things to change:
#1) Walking & exercise first before doing anything! Just like I used to do. Pack packages later when done.
#2) Stop buying chocolate for now, since I can't eat just one piece.
#3) Track my food.
#4) Think first before before adding anything to my mouth. Any little extra's can add up!
#5) Get my strength training 3x a week
I have realized how bad it can get when I do not focus on exercising first, from now on it will be my priority.
Oh boy can I relate to this! I started eating whatever I wanted a little before thanksgiving and by my diet start date on jan. 4th I had gained 15 lbs. Talk about regret! Now I am remembering how long and hard I have to work to loose the weight... I need to stop my gain/loss cycle! It feels good to know I am not alone... Thanks! ~Katie 2238 days ago
I really relate to this. I've put on 12 pounds in the last 3 months--which means I'm up above 200 again (from a low of 190). Yuck. Too many sweets, not tracking my food. I'd going right from this comment to track my breakfast!
Good luck getting back on track! 2240 days ago
