The title says it all. Many of us have been here. We lose a bunch of weight (I was nearing 30lbs) and then we slowly start to pack on the pounds. After swearing vehemently that i will NEVER EVER gian that weight, it is gone forever!!
Well it came back. I fought it every step of the way too. Obviously not well. I kept trying but rarly updated my tracker because most weeks the weight was a little higher than the next. Sometimes I just focused on maintaining and usually could to that for a few weeks, but then the binging on chips happened again.
I know the main reasons
- binging of chips
- not cooking very often (= boring meals = chips taste way better and easy to justify)
- not exercising
-sit around all day long. After work I guess.
So what am I gonna do? Well putting it out here makes me feel a little less ashamed - its been confessed ya know? I can move on.
*Track food. I'll track calories when I can but if not I'll write out my food to keep me accountable.
*Track the binges too. Its hard to admit them, but I need to hold myself accountable
*Go to the gym 3x for at least 30minutes. Just starting out slow here
*Try to find a bike that will hold my weight in my town *gulp* this one may not be possible
*Take advantage of my summer roommate. She just graduated a fitness program and said she does double classes every morning...she has already invited me to them!
*COOK! I had people over for a turkey feast (homemade mostly-healthy stuff) and i have had little desire to binge. The leftovers are so satisfying and such a treat since I havnt been cooking. Going to remember this...Have leftovers for today only but then I'll have to cook tomorrow.
*Find more things to do. I feel like i go to work (and only about 25 hours right now, looking for job in my field) and then do NOTHING all day. I have a bookclub once a month, and some friends from work and i try to get together for boardgames...but thats it. Oh and I volunteer Mondays with Girl Guides. I need more in my life! Maybe I`ll look for another volunteer place...
So there it is. A confession and a new plan. Breakfast was delicious - toast-jam, milk and grapes.
Going to look up some bike shops...
