That darned yo-yo!

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I'm getting the scissors out and cutting the string on that stupid thing! This past week made me see just how tired I am of all this back and forth. I hit the 22 pounds lost mark, then let everything go as I have been wont to do in the past, and ended up gaining 15 of it back. The I had gone back to tracking, at least what I was eating during the day, and packing lunches/snacks with more thought, and in the course of a couple of weeks, dropped nine of it back off. And then there was the next five days. Where apparently I kind of lost my mind. I don't know if it was because I knew that I was eminently signing up at the gym on Friday, or what, but when I got on the scale Saturday, yesterday, those dratted nine pounds were back!!


I'm really, truly just done with it this time. I know what I need to do, I know how to get it done, now is the time to do it. I mean, seriously, if I can quit smoking with minimal drama after 15 years, surly I've got enough strength and fortitude to see this thing through. So I've reset my SparkStreaks, put my ticker on 354 where it the scale said it should be Saturday morning, and I'm going to put on my big girl panties and start rocking the discipline.

Thank you, kind friends, for your continued support, I know you're all tired of the yo-yo-ing, too. This is one story I am going to see gets it's happy ending!

    I know what you mean. I am back and forth within the same 5 pounds. It's so annoying! I can easily gain several pounds in a few days. I find that when I am careful about counting it comes off fairly quickly though, since it's a lot of it's water weight from carb overload.
