At it...again

Saturday, January 12, 2013

I fell like a broken record, sitting here on my computer saying that I would once again lose weight. But I am REALLY going to try this time to get it right. I think my mistake was that I thought that I could just go about my business without tracking what I eat or drink. I now realize that I am not as good at that as I thought. One big wake up was coming back here to SparkPeople and seeing that I had lost 17 pounds! I don't know why I could not remember that I had lost that amount I had nearly been half way to my goal. But now I have ruined it by gaining almost 10 of it back. I also want to try and document a little more. I seem to forget things, like weight loss and good jobs done.

Another thing that I am going to do to further on my weight loss is that when I get down a pant size I am going to give my bigger pants away. I don't care how much I like them, how comfortable they are, nothing...they are going to Goodwill! That was my problem last time, my old pants were practically falling off, but I had the mindset that I would not be able to fit in the next size down. Boy was I wrong! I probably could have went down almost 2 sizes! I am the type of person that I will not allow myself to get any bigger than my current size of pants. Once they begin to get tight, I begin to work on what I am doing wrong. So to those soon to be too big pair of pants...Adios! I have already gone to the thrift store and bought 2-3 pairs of smaller pants for a couple of dollars a pair, and if I get in them, my old pants are leaving the premises and I will go get a pair or two more to wear until I get down to the other size. I am really hoping that this will work for me.

Right now I am only working on my eating. I really want to focus on that to show myself that it really was what I was eating. I have only been at this one week and lost 2 pounds. So yes, my eating is a problem. I didn't think that I ate a whole lot, but it is what I have been eating and my I am sure my portion sizes were off as well. To help with that too I have bought a scale for the kitchen, so that I no longer have to guess or eyeball what I think I am eating. After another week or two I am going to add in some exercise. Good luck to me and good luck to all on our journey!

    Welcome back! I too am back at it so I know how you feel, but the important thing is you are back and you are thinking of some things you can do differently. I am doing the same and I know that is what will make us successful this time around. emoticon
