The lighter I get, the harder it is to lose.

I have been bouncing in this 176-182 pound range for the last few months now. I easily lost most of it again in the last couple of weeks, but this week, come weigh in day, I'm up 2 pounds again. I know some of it was the fact relatives showed up asking for food from places to order in, but I also know I should be able to handle them. The fudge didn't help nor did the popcorn tin.
Popcorn is my friend, but only if it's freshly air popped at home.
It's been super cold this week, so I haven't been able to get out the last couple of days for my normal weekday walks, I would have even brought the kids out had it been nicer, even though we're off the first two days of this week. Below zero temps tend to make me not want to go out as it takes longer to get dressed to be out than it's safe to stay outside.
Yes, I know what my problems have been, eating too much while sitting on my butt too much. I'm just getting a little tired of this bouncing back and forth, it looks like mini goal #5 is still a long ways away, despite only being a few pounds away.
I did get frustrated enough to pull out one of my fitness games to do some yoga last night and I'll have to make that more of a habit during these cold days.
I need to get back into my healthy habits that got sidetracked this week. I need to find a way to stop using the cold as an excuse. I need to start cooking the healthy foods I'm used to and tracking everything. I need to focus on lunches again as those have not been a priority still and it's going to be my hardest meal to make since it's not something I think about until I'm hungry.
I'm not putting in the weight this week, but will next week no matter what it ends up being. Let's hope that it goes back down for a holding steady kind of weight on the chart. I can do it if I really put my mind to it!
