The story of my life. Er, with my weight anyhow. I have read all of the articles. I have educated myself and am purvey to the fact that salt, a woman's menstrual cycle, exercise, well, it seems like you name it, can make a person's weight fluctuate as many as ten pounds within days! Crazy as it seems, I ruthlessly torture myself even with the knowledge.
I must do this, change this, do that, change that if I am going to successfully lose weight! I send myself on a rabid race against myself to beat the odds of gaining after a salty indulgence or after a day on my monthly. Oy...when will I ever learn?
I am tired of fighting with myself, tired of telling myself to shape up or ship out. Anybody ever feel like losing weight is a really, really difficult practice? Sure I've got a better handle on it than I did three months ago, but the battle, oh, the uphill, never ending battle.
I've heard laments on both ends, the dieter and the maintainer, the lifestyle changer and the achiever, yet I must admit I will be glad to maintain and gain some salt weight then lose it again than be in the race and have an uphill battle most weeks.
Oh, well, lol, I'm not quitting, and since my body does not feel like cooperating with me today, I am dragging it on a jog with my son. After all the weather is breaking, spring is in the air, and sooner or later this lady, this lady right here, will be under 200 pounds! Don't worry, lol, you won't miss it. It will be the BIGGEST press release I have ever announced in my life.
Cheers, dear Spark Commodores. We can, oh yes, I solemnly assure WE CAN do this!
