new phase

Monday, January 28, 2013

i dropped over 100 lbs. did really well keeping it off for over 6 months--i bounced up and down about 5 lbs from day to day, then winter arrived. between snow and ice, it was very challenging to be outside, so my output went down, even though my input stayed the same. then i had a tooth abscess...blech. then a death in the family. throughout all the yuck, i gained some back. i just wasn't running fast enough, and it caught up with me. i refuse to beat myself up, or throw a pity party, but it's time to get serious. i know what happened, and i know how to fix it, so i'm starting fresh this week. my tooth is gone (i had no idea how much that was zapping me until it was gone--i feel about 10 years younger!!!), the memorial is done, i'm adjusting to indoor exercise, i think i can track calories without moving into the anorexic thing (but i will be accountable on that one to be sure i don't go back to under eating.) so, it's time for a fresh start. i'm going to work hard this year to get the last 30 or 40 lbs GONE.
