Up and Down...up and down!! For the last 6 months that is the way of my scale. How does a person eat the correct amount of calories and yet gain 2 pounds in a week? I can easily gain 5 lbs in a week. How is my weight only 6 lbs up from 6 months ago (and my dishonesty blames that on quitting smoking) and my waist is almost 4 inches bigger?
Watching Biggest Loser last week I heard Dolvett Quince, who is my favorite trainer on the show, say to the contestant. "Be honest with yourself. When you get honest with yourself the weight never comes back" That has stuck in my head all week.
Well its time for me to be honest with myself.
I cannot eat like alot of people.
I cannot be sedentary.
God did not make me like that.
I sometimes think it would be nice to be able to eat whatever I want and not think about is it good for me or how many calories is that. Yep, that would be nice but its not my reality.
I have to eat foods low in fats, sugars, and empty calories
I have to exercise every day, no matter how short the session is
I have to stop making excuses
I have to stop denying that I'm off track
I have to admit that these 5 lbs gained will continue to grow and eventually be 50 lbs
I need to do yoga to feel my best
I need to not just blog about this and talk about this, I need to do this!!
Now that I've written this all down, I need to take action!
