I have weighed myself most weeks since January 2011 and put the figures into an spreadsheet with a graph.
At the start of each new year I have started a new work sheet for that year and made a new graph.
But i've never put the two years worth of data together. Its sobering.
(sorry its not that clear but you get the idea)
It shows that over the last 2 years and 4 months I have put on 20 lbs in that time. Its gone up and down but mainly up.
Looking at the correlations it seems to me that when work is crazy busy or bad things have happened its gone up. Like the few crazy busy last few weeks at work.
It has shocked me. I knew I had put the weight on. I feel it. I travel with it. I struggle with it.
But to see it in black and white is something else.....
It's made me realise I NEED to get this rollercoaster under control. I have let the stress and the upset dictate what I do and how I feel.
I need to learn to respond not react and I will.
One step at a time.
On a more positive note. I pushed my nephew (who's 2) home on his bike yesterday and whilst we didn't go fast we walked and jogged (just a tiny little bit) which has made me realise I can do far more than I give myself credit for.
Off to wash my jogging bottoms so that tomorrow I can go out and walk!
Have a great day
