Getting there...

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Back in the day when my main goal was to lose 100 pounds (which I succeeded in), I blogged nearly everyday. It helped to get the almost instant online support. These days I still lean on that support. In fact, this week I have been trying to use that support more often. No one can help you if you don't ASK for the support. Whether you have there for me this week or a year ago, thank you. I truly appreciate the support.

For those that read my blog a couple days ago about being upset because I was at 170, I did get back to 169. I have been tracking for the last three weeks and I can feel mentally I needed a day off of it all. I decided to go out for chinese. It was nice to go out with just my boyfriend. If you don't know, I live with my boyfriend and his mentally disabled mom. It definitely has it's challenging times. It was nice to feel like a 'real' couple. I do not regret the chinese either. Sure, I retained two pounds of water but I know the scale is lying to me. Deceptive little scale. Hoping to get tons of water in today.

Knowing the scale is being deceptive, I will NOT give up. In fact, I did 65 minutes on the elliptical so I earned another sticker on my calendar. I feel really good about that. It was nice to get all the stress out of my system. For the last three weeks, I have noticed I worked out approximately three times a week. I am hoping to work out about four times this week. Maybe eventually I can back to making it a daily routine, like it was before.

So, slowly but surely I am getting there! emoticon

    Sticking it out is not always easy, but it always pays off! Good luck and stay strong.
