AWOL for a bit but I think I'm back

Friday, May 11, 2012

So October 26th my father-in-law lost his fight with esophageal cancer. During his illness I regained some of the weight I had lost. We were eating a lot of fast food and carryout during his illness and of course that isn't good. Two days after Christmas my husband had a mild(thank God) heart attack with minimal damage but he did spend 3 days in the hospital. Once again, carryout food.
So here it is almost summer and I cannot wear any of my clothes from last summer. I have GOT to jump back on the healthy wagon because boy howdy am I getting uncomfortable again. emoticon The one good thing about everything is that I did not quit exercising. I did quit doing extra exercise but I still attended my 3 times a week 30 minute class.(except during December when the class was closed). That's something I suppose. I know I need to track my eating but I really hate doing it. It seems to be the ONLY way I can lose weight because I LOVE food and love to eat. Somehow seeing the calorie count staring back at me keeps me accountable. It's so tedious though and I despise doing it.
I should be happy I suppose that I kept the majority of the weight off for almost 2 yrs. During that stress filled time I have somehow developed an addiction for sweets. I didn't really have a problem with that before but apparently I do now. Sigh..........
So today... I will start anew. I hope. emoticon

    I find tracking is the only way to keep me from overeating. Sweets are my downfall as well.

    Hang in there. Tracking is tedious, but it does remind you of what you are doing. A lot of people, me included, will think twice about putting something in their mouths if they have to write it down.
