Again and Again

So... let's see... I just keep trying... :)

Started more faithfully again on 1/7/13. I've been very good at tracking my food. I've been making myself walk the path around my work building (measured out as a 1/2 of a mile) at least once a day most days of the workweek.

I have to say Monday I was chipper and even looking forward to walking, I even walked the path twice. It could be that I saw I lost 2 pounds the first whole week and knew I could keep it up :) However, yesterday, I felt like it was more of a chore to get myself outside and walk the path. I did it once, but that's better than nothing. Today with the snow, I didn't walk at all, but I'll be back at it :-D

I don't have any real goal in mind... first goal is to fit back into my favorite jeans when they come out the dryer better. That should just be about 5-7 pounds. After that... I'd like to be somewhat comfortable in shorts for working out in the yard this summer or maybe even ... dare I say it??? ... don a bathing suit to swim or go to the beach this coming summer too! I'm not holding my breath, a bathing suit isn't my top priority because, let's face it, I've never liked being in a bathing suit so much.

Ultimately, I just want to be comfortable again. And healthier, of course. I don't like running out of breath racing from my car and up the flight of stairs and to my desk. It makes me feel AWFUL about myself. I don't like feeling so uncomfortable in my skin that I'm constantly trying to hide myself. So I'm trying. It's all I can do. It's all a person can really do actually.

As Dori says... Just keep swimming... :)

    Making a goal helps tremendously; and it took me years to find a program that worked for me, but one of the biggest things that helped was joining a community. I went back to synagogue, but it can be anything from a church/synagogue, to a YMCA (or OneLife, or any gym that you like). One of the most important things in losing/maintaining weight is the people that surround you. So make sure they are all positive ad supportive, of not only your health goals, but every other aspect in your life as well.

    Keep it up!
