I could have been to my goal weight a year ago if I kept going with my logging, but I stopped and tend to maintain right around 180 with about a 5 pound range. I've been at this range for about the last year now and it seems that I just can't lose the weight without logging every bite.
Don't get me wrong, I like that I know I can maintain and have been able to for the last year, but this is not the weight I want to be at. I still look pregnant and still can't fit into a bra off the rack and it's actually even harder to get one on the internet too. This mid-section belly weight is bothering me, but who knows if I can get past the 170 range and see the 160 range. I'm so close I can taste it, but the energy to log everything just wanes frequently. I'm great at logging for a week or so, but then go back to not logging again.
Obviously I can keep at it and lose the weight or I wouldn't still be 50 pounds down from my original weight, but it's this last little bit that seems so hard. I got tired of logging everything.
I have gained some great habits that don't need logging. I take daily walks and get movement where I can, I'll even be pulling up the garden today. I eat much better than I did two years ago. I don't eat as much when I start to munch late at night. I have a great breakfast every morning. I try to get more fruits and vegetables every day and feel sad and tired when I can't have them.
I want to see the rest of my goals checked off that are still hanging there on my front page for everyone to see. It's kind of depressing that it's taking so long to check them off, but I know I can do it.
Perhaps talking to my husband to get a diet bet going may help? I know he wants to lose the weight, but just isn't doing much to get there. I guess I feel alone in this battle and would feel more like finishing if he were helping by losing his excess weight too. It's harder when there's little help around the house to get it going. I know I can't base my weight loss on his help, he hasn't been helpful at all this whole time, but it would feel more like a group effort if he were more on board. We'll see when I discuss it with him later today.
