Rough couple of weeks!!

Sunday, April 25, 2010

I have had a rough couple of weeks. I was doing so well down to 132 the lightest have been in 10 years. I guess maybe I was getting too confident. I stopped tracking food, which is big for me. I was still doing okay with the exercise. Some days are no choice but to exercise or not go to work (most of you know I carry mail at the post office a few days a week). I ended up gaining 5 pounds over the last two weeks. I got up to 137 again. Talk about a slap in the face but what did I expect. I was eating whatever I wanted without regard to calorie count. I know that I can't do that or I get completely out of control.

So I am back to tracking my food and sticking close to the meal plan. I have made a bit of progress this week down 2 pounds. I just need to stay motivated to track food. I know that is my weakness and if I don't stay accountable the pounds come rushing back.

    I'm totally in the same boat. I've been too scared to weigh myself and my pants are tight. I did workout Friday and Sunday. With all that's gone on with my boy, it's very hard to organize myslef to do it. But, I am also trying to stay on track at least with the food. I've done well the past few days with the exception of yesterday, but it wasn't to terrible. I just mowed the lawn so I know that counts for some calories. I need to my little guy back in here in a couple hours. Thanks for the encouragement with this situation.

    Tracking keeps me focused too.

    You are getting exercise while you work. I am so jealous. I sit most of the day and do wall push-ups, squats, or something similar during my restroom break. Every little bit helps!

    Figuring out the problem is 1/2 the battle so you'll get there.

    You are very smart to catch it before it gets out of hand. It's so easy to do. Tracking every morsel sometimes takes alot of time, but it's worth it. I think you look wonderful so don't get discouraged...just one day at a time.

    I have trouble when I don't track too. I just let my eating get way out of control. I did that yesterday but am back today. Don't fret about those pounds gained, they'll be lost again soon!
