One week of not smoking woo-hoo. Big self pats on back :). Gaining ten pounds over the past six months that I didn't help any this weekend. Ugghh :(. Sometimes it feels like my feet never can move in the same direction at once. It isn't like I haven't traveled here before though. I have been at my happy weight for about ten years and every so often the weight creeps back on and the battle to get it off begins. It really is so much easier to gain than lose! I know what I need to do - track, watch my bites licks and tastes, stick to my exercise plan and watch those beers.
I can't help but feel like this time is different though and it is scary. I started amping up my fitness and strength training in May and the results are showing in my muscle tone. I feel firmer than ever but bigger than ever. It is like getting used to a new body and new way of thought. I really don't feel comfortable at this weight but getting it off this time is proving to be harder than ever. For now I am going to be thankful for my strong body and put my nose to the grindstone and stick to my plan. I guess I will just have to see what happens after that.
