Blocked, Not Stopped!

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind for me. My husband and I reconciled after being apart for more than 3 1/2 years. He is moving back in and bringing lots of stuff (he's a pack rat and technology guy with lots of wires and stuff, I am a book hound but like things sparce and neat). Then...to top everything off... I got sick for the first time in almost a year!

I guess I don't have to tell you all that I got off both my eating and exercise plan. I have been going strong since November 2011 and have lost over 35 pounds and I just cant believe I let this happen. I got on the scale today and it read 223.4, which is up from my lowest so far of 220. TODAY IS A NEW DAY!

Today is my first day back at work after being off sick. It is also my first day of recommiting to my weight loss goal of weighing 135 pounds. I am still weak and not 100% (I had a bad cold) but I am drinking tea and water with lemons all day and eating light. I am walking 1.30 miles on my lunch break and I will do another 1.5 miles tonight when I get off. I am going to push through this setback.

No matter what is going on in my life, good or bad, I am doing this weight loss thing for me. No turning back!

    So sorry to hear that you have been sick but I am glad to hear that you are on the mend. I hope things work out for you and your husband and that he gives you the time that you need to work on you. With all that you have been through the past two weeks a 3 lb gain isn't that bad at all. I'm sure once you really get back on full speed they will drop off as easily as they came on. Good luck to you my friend and have a great week.
