The last five weekends have been wonderful. I have been to a friend's cottage on the lake, where we rubberstamped and ate, then Labor Day weekend I went to Girl Scout camp, where we crafted and ate. The following weekend was spent with friends, stamping and eating. Then I had a stamping workshop with some of my favorite ladies and guess what: we ate yummy homemade quiche. Then last weekend I went away for some rubberstamping classes and since eating was mostly fast food, again it wasn't the healthiest, although I did make some good choices.
After losing 90 pounds, I have managed to regain 25. It didn't all happen in the last 5 weeks, but the scale going over 190 was a wake up call. At my lowest I was 165. I wasn't there for long. Today I was back to 188. I had maintained in the 182-185 range for over a year. When I lost the weight, I had gone from a high of 256 and size 26, down to size 10's. I have to wear 12's right now and I never bought 14's on the way down. ALL my fat clothes have been donated, so I need to get serious again.
My biggest problem is grazing. When I get together with friends and good food, it's like I take a vacation from healthy eating. I know I shouldn't, but after 50+ years of bad habits, I still revert to the old me. I'm going to start the Fall 5% challenge next week. I need some accountability. I need to get back to my healthy habits. I'm gonna go make something healthy right now to take to work tomorrow. (I'm working the next 2 weekends......payback for having had those weekends off). Maybe I'll hit more than one Zumba class next week too.
