Why am I in this ditch?

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Today is the first day of the rest of my life, the entire past is gone - just a text to learn from. we know making a major weight loses is something we can do. something that require making the effort and the persistence to continue over time and making good choices most of the time, But also something we can do. For me it was not like being chained to the dungeon wall. I had a lot of good tasty food to eat. and spent some time walking, something I enjoy. I could even eat a donut - just not 12 at a time :)

Keeping it off has to be at least as easy, and dropping the next 75 pound can't be any harder so why am I sticking in the slide? How can I gain 5 pounds in a week, That is eating an extra 15,000 calories !!!

I don't remember eating that much, and of course if I look back at my tracker I find I forgot to fill it out :(

I'm not sure how smart I am, but if I hit myself in the face with a shovel - I know I am doing something wrong. Lets look at the score board. One week just remembering without writing things down and a 5 pound gain - the next Keeping track and being careful and the damn 5 pounds of fat disappeared .

What should we learn?

Today I am making something like Broccoli Beef for lunch, I am using fat free hot dogs for the meat and putting it on cabbage

there is no environment out there and we in here. We are created by the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. And the energy in our bodies,
it comes from the sun. We are the environment, whatever we
do to the environment, we do directly to ourselves

    You can gain a lot of weight through retaining water. Watch your sodium. I have that problem. Although I have reached my goal I still have to watch that.
I liked your blog. emoticon

    It's amazing how little it takes to get off track. Lucky for us it's just as easy to get back on! Once your realize what's going on you can make the adjustment. A doughnut fell into my mouth last week when I wasn't paying attention!
Love the last paragraph about our place in the environment. Enjoy the journey!

    We who have been on this road know what will work and what won't. But we forget that we are now practicing being good to ourselves and that tracking and walking aren't drudgery but a way to be kind.
Good job catching yourself and good job turning it around!

    I know what you mean. Have to be honest with what you track too. (My problem).
