For me this year, February was a month of not tracking food, not exercising regularly, and just giving in to cravings. Of course it shows on the scale - and on my body and in the way that my clothes fit.
What happened? I don't know and I'm not sure I'll ever know. February was my husband's birthday - I have been a widow for 5 and a half years, so why was it so hard this year? Valentine's Day with no card or flowers or chocolate from my special guy. ... this wasn't the first year, but it still seemed harder than usual this year to be alone.
Well, that just sounds like a bit of self-pity and quite a bit of justification for eating whatever I felt like and not exercising and being a slug in front of the television set. A bout of dizziness was kind of scary and made me aware of the downside of living alone. But I have children who call and come over and check on me and offer to drive me to doctor appointments. I have good friends who do likewise.
So - I'm counting my blessings this morning and feeling better and more positive than I have for the past 29 days or so. Marching into March with a positive attitude!
