I'm frustrated beyond belief with my weight. I was doing so good and now I can't seem to do anything right. My eating has been way off that I can't seem to stay within my calorie range. I either over eat because I'm still so hungry, miscalculate or lately it's also been out of boredom. This plus the fact that I didn't go to the gym that much makes the reason the scale hasn't gone down but rather up very disheartening.
Each day is a new day to try again though. Yesterday I miscalculated for my lunch and ended up eating about 200 calories over my allotted amount for the day. Ok, not too bad. Last night, I went to the park to go jogging/walking and lifted weights when I got home. Today I'm packing my lunch and will try and go for a walk or something when I get home. I have a party tomorrow that I have to get the food ready for tonight so I'm going to try and squeeze it in between that.
I lost the weight once I can do it again. I guess I just thought that I would be further along with my weight loss goals then what I am now. I've been on sparkpeople for just over 200 days now and have only lost 19 pounds. I'm trying to stay focused and remember that I'm trying to undo 28 years of bad habits with good habits that will stick this time. A few years ago or even last year I never would have come home, and decided to go to the park to go for a run, and then come home to lift weights. It just never even crossed my mind. So I hope this means changes are happening...
So here's to the slow and steady! May it always win the race!! :)
