Ugh, how life can throw us curve balls. I had been maintaining a 60 pound loss successfully by walking 2-3 times a week and sticking with my "you only eat if you're hungry" approach for about a year. Things had been going great then some stressful life events happened and I went immediately into food. I've gained 40 pounds in 4 months and I stopped walking, of course. It's embarrassing to admit that I use food as an emotional crutch. And it's scary at how quickly I gained weight.
So I'm back. I'm starting off slow again, trying to figure out easy changes I can make that I can stick with once again. I know this works. It's worked every time I've tried.
Today I'm going to start tracking my food again and maybe go for a walk. Each time I've started that's been an effective approach to getting me back in the habit of visiting and making positive changes, so I'm going to do that again. I may try to go for a walk, even if it's a short one, or maybe 10 minutes on the treadmill if I can get the boxes and stuff off it to get it working.
I hope everyone is doing well! Hugs all around.
