Bummer summer! DH had knee replacement & complications. I stopped exercising to care for him. I returned to old eating habits to comfort...me! Then he had an injury on the same leg......I made more bad choices in food & fitness! (What's wrong with THIS picture??!!)
Guess what happened? Yep, regained almost all the weight I'd lost through 4 years w/ SP. No words to describe my disappointment & frustration.
3 weeks ago I finally got a grip and started over again. Decided not to weigh in. After increasing exercise, I always weigh more and I'm always depressed and cantankerous! So why go through that again? Phoeey on the scale! Just going to do what I'm supposed to do...SP. Period.
New plan: Examine each food choice carefully and do the very best I can. Start a streak of a minimum of 30 min. of exercise 6 days/week. Take 1 day/wk from fitness off unless I'm dying to exercise (believe it or not...I have exercised on my day off!! (Bonkers...I'm goin' bonkers!)
So it's Day 20 of the streak. Clothes are slightly looser. Mood is significantly BETTER!! Food choices are decidedly easier. Cravings for soda and chocolate significantly diminished and I can be satisfied w/ a small taste if I'm really desperate.
What do I weigh? I haven't a clue! I'm doing the best I can every hour and that's what matters. It'll work; it's already working! Thanks to my SP friends for never letting me q-u-i-t! No way, Jose!
