I hope all is well in your world!
I'm down another 0.2 lbs for a total of 22 lbs gone!
Honestly, I was hoping for more, but not surprised that it wasn't, & I'll tell ya why. I just got back from visiting up north about a week ago. And every time I make that trip, something happens to my psyche...I don't know if it's because we're eating out in restaurants, or that I become "bored" just sitting in the car, or just that I have too much "down time", whatever... Every time we've ventured up north in the past, I've gained weight. And I tend NOT to lose the weight I've gained, & I'll tell ya why. Because when I get home, I have the hardest time reigning in my appetite! It's the weirdest thing! I resist w/all my being any controls on portions & I CRAVE things like ice cream...comfort foods like potato soup & macaroni & cheese! I really paid attention this time I got back & really tried hard because of WW's (cause I KNEW I had to get on that scale!). I resisted tracking like the dickens! It was horrible! And my fights NOT done yet! I'm still fighting! And I know I'm doing it...& I don't seem to care! Go figure!
Well, my strategy has been to keep moving & keep tracking! It's worked thus far. I notice it's subsiding just a bit now...& I'm feeling more in control. I just wish I could figure this thing out because I really struggle every time I go up north! Although we're not planning anymore return trips now until next summer....thank goodness! This year, family is coming to visit me for Christmas...so NO SNOWY days for me!!! WOOHOO!!!
Alright guys, I hope everyone is doing well! Our humidity has finally broken & the days have become very pleasant, although at the moment, hurricane Sandy is gracing us with a bit of wind & rain & dark clouds since yesterday. So, just a couple of cloudy & rainy days...& then back to sunshine & warm gentle breezes! Oh, how I do LOVE living in SW Florida!
Hugs & love ya all!
