My blood pressure was out of sight when I went to get steroids for poison ivy! My weight was almost to its highest and just the week before I had complications from pcos. All of this made me realize it was time to try again to lose weight. We just moved all the way across the US and I have had a few months to unpack and settle into a new routine. Now, I need to make healthy living a part of that routine!
So for just over two weeks now I have been logging every bite and trying to convince myself to exercise. I don't like exercise, though I love the relief that comes to me when I am done with it! I lost four pounds the first week and have not lost anything since. That is a little discouraging but I must remind myself that it ultimately is more important to be living the right way than that the numbers on the scale move. I am trying to think of small goals outside the scale to encourage myself.
More than anything, I am afraid that this attempt will end like so many attempts before. To combat that thinking, I try to remind myself that every day that I do the right things is one more day of good health. It really is a one day at a time thing for me.
