Climbing back on the wagon

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Ok, first I stopped the excercising when my knees were bothering me, that was about a week ago. Then I stopped logging my calories. I know I have to, but I really just got tired of doing it. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get to a point where I can maintain a healthy weight without all this tracking...

For now its obvious that I can't!! It took me over a month to lose that 3.5 pounds and 1 week to gain them back. Aaaackkk!! I did try to watch what I ate, but I'm sure I ate more because I wasn't recording it.

So today I've done 40 minutes of indoor walking so far and I've tracked all my food. I stand by my decision to keep heading for the goal line, even though I've gotten side-tracked. My original goal of 140 by May '09 is beginnning to be not realistic anymore as time goes on. This makes me sad, but what would be worse is if I would continue to gain weight like I did this past week.

The one thing I'm hoping is that some of this weight this week is water weight. I think that's a good possibility because between yesterday and today I gained 1.5 pounds.

Anyways, here I go again..

    Hey there... I here you! Haven't been around much lately, but glad to see you're getting back on track.. I will so too after my work schedule will be better in Feb... I know, I keep making excuses with my work schedule, but I've been doing night shifts on the ICU with only 1 day off in 7 which has been kind of rough....
    Best wishes to you, you know you can do it!
