My third anniversary with SP was two days ago. I have kept off thirty pounds with spark. Right now I am struggling back and forth between 155 and 170.(Overweight would be 153 down to 130.) It seems as though as soon as I get to close to overweight, I space out and go right back up to 170. Is this psychological? I don't know. I am real good through the winter and then summer comes and I get whacked out of shape. I can't seem to use the food scale, measuring cups and spoons to control my portions. I buy and eat ice cream in the summer where I don't in the winter. I buy and eat junk food in the summer where I don't in the winter. Maybe it is where I shop in the summer. They always have this stuff on sale for the tourists and because I think I am getting a bargain that I buy more of the junk. So then it is in the house to tempt me. We do more socializing in the summer than in the winter also. All poor excuses, so I am struggling.
I do a lot of walking in the campground for exercise but this year we have had an unusual amount of black bears here. Not fun to run into one of them. And I have twice so far.
I use the treadmill in the winter. Don't have to watch for the bears then. So thanks for listening to my lamentations. I need to buckle down and get back to business.
