Over the last few years, the scale has been moving in the wrong direction. I hopped on the scale this morning and gained another 4 pounds (I need to put this in writing so I see it!). Am I sad?? Yes..but mostly I'm disappointed because I thought I had this in the bag! I know what to do. I've slipped back into some of my old ways and this has to stop!! I've shown myself that weight gain doesn't happen over night..it's gradual...just like weight loss needs to be (I already knew this from experience, too...I've been here a long time!)
So..I'm going to scale way back on all the "things" I have going here on line and focus only on small, achievable goals...3 of them.
1 - no more eating after dinner (I know it's OK to eat any time of day, but for now this has to stop for me to get a jump on things)
2 - go back to volunteering regularly; it's good for the sole (this afternoon I'm going back to the animal shelter I used to volunteer for)
3 - form a regular exercise routing (I walk every day, but am slowly adding early morning exercises back..one small step at a time)
These are my goals for now..once I can say I've met these, I will add another, then another, then another...until I'm back down to where I need to be!!
