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... :)
