1 Pound

I am one pound away from a cumlative total of 50 lbs! I am 2 pounds away from my goal of breaking 160 by the New Year.

When I think about how in the last few months I have regressed with some of my habits, I still have to hold my head up high. I still have all the knowledge I didn't have before. I haven't gained any weight back, I generally just hold at that weight. I also now understand why I feel the way I do.

"I have a headache" oh I need to eat something, "I'm tired all the time" I need to eat more fruit and veggies.

I'm starting to understand what my body needs. Which is probably more important and useful than any calorie tracker, or fitness routine. I have also realized that until my eating is back on track there's no point in trying to exercise. I don't have the energy and that may be considered an excuse to some, but the way I look at it, I am doing something about it. I am eating better to get my energy up so I have the energy to work out.

I have also cleared out more clothes from my closet. Now if I got rid of all the stuff that is too big, I wouldn't have any clothes left but I got rid of a decent amount.

It wasn't as big of an adjustment as I thought not having the dog around was going to be. I'm significantly less stressed out. Which is very good. Now it's just the kitten that is driving me crazy!

I have also realized the times that I am eating healthy I spend a TON of time in the kitchen! Not that I mind entirely, although I would love to have a dish washer, that would seriously cut down my time in the kitchen.

    That is quite an accomplishment. You are almost there. I am proud of the things you have done ,weight wise and in your personal life. Who cares if some one has a view of you being lazy because you do not feel like working out. That is your decision. If you are not into it,that is when you make careless mistakes or the right intensity isn't there.
    It is good you are learning your body and what it is trying to tell you.

    Sometimes you can do mild exercising just to keep your body moving. Exercise does not have to be full throttle all the time. Last week, I was sick and lacked energy. Plus I was busy and had a hard time eating well. So I cut back a day on the cardio and just did walking at the gym. Spark has some short videos too. Ease back into this until you find the right balance of food and exercise. Good luck on losing your final two pounds by the end of the year.
