Over the years I have tried getting the weight off but I seem to gain and lose the same 10-20 lbs over and over again. I need to get out of that vicious cycle.
The main thing for me is going to be to stay motivated in other words, consistency & not to be going strong for a couple weeks and then have it fizzle and go back to old self-defeating habits. I know I have the support of my family & that really helps.
I realize my husband asking how much I lost this week, or have I lost lately is him just trying to help me. I guess I get annoyed about it because I know I can do better and put more effort into it. I am actually more annoyed with myself than I am with him.
I know he wants me to get to a healthy weight so I can be more productive and be more active in the garden and yard stuff rather than just doing the canning and/or freezing. Also, I would be able to work more on the landscaping and flowers rather than doing the bare minimum.
I think back 20 years ago when we were living in Starkville, I was at a much healthier weight then and I worked in the yard, planted flowers more than I do now. I know I can do this, I did it before & I can do it again. I realize I am older so that will make it more difficult but I can and will do this. It just will take me staying committed to eating healthy and exercising regularly.
