I have started to get lazy and the cold weather here does NOT help. I plan on getting up and moving, either a workout video or a jog 4 times a week. I also need to be COMPLETELY honest with myself when it comes to what I eat. I took a TSH test for my thyroid and it came back normal, but people are telling me that that isn't always right, so I also have to have a food diary to show my doctor.
I've been trying to stay positive about all this but lately I've been getting a little discouraged watching that stupid scale fluctuate.
Persistance will pay off...as long as I keep my willpower in check and watch what I'm doing.
Of all things, I bought prunes yesterday, for obvious reasons; irregularity is a big problem with me. I figured I'd try this strategy and see if that will help along with other healthier snacks with added fiber.
After a couple of years at 175lbs i have started to eat worse, exercise less, and gain weight. I am now at 187lbs. For right now my goal is just to track my food and lose that 12 pounds before it gets to 112 lbs. I have tried everything over the years to lose weight and at age 50 have finally managed it. I refuse to let this slip through my fingers. Anna
Blessed are those who can laugh at themselves for they are endlessly amused.
good job Liz!! we're getting a Wii after the first of the year.
We bought the house we were after and have moved in.
Work has the Wellness at Work going again and I've been doing some type of cardio 7 days a week for 30 min a day. I've logged in all my fitness onto my tracker since 9/24. Can't believe I've been that active and still haven't gotten to my goals! LOL
I know... I've been taking more in than I've been expending but... I'm not on the Biggest Loser and training 6-8 hours a day. 30 min a day only goes so far.
