Slow to Get Back

Monday, February 04, 2013

Today I weighed in, 2.2 pound gain. It's okay. Thought maybe I would have gained everything back with not tracking and going back to my old eating habits. I'm fine with that considering what the past few weeks have brought. However, I can't understand why I can get myself back under control and then something happens to set me back. I can't let the setbacks defeat me. I will have to learn to deal with them and not let them affect how I handle my control with food.
I bought an e-book to get me through the days at the hospital where my DH has spent many days the month of January. I'm not a book reader generally but decided I wanted to take a stab at it. I finished the book last evening. Could not believe I actually read a full book. My last book that I read was about five years ago. So you can see I'm not an avid reader. This book seemed to hold my interest and was an easy read book. 237 pages. Just enough without being too many. I'm now waiting for the next book in the series. I found myself joining their book club. Hoping this will motivate me into doing other things. I do love to sew and crochet and have a couple projects lined up. I'm sure all this will help me take my mind off of food. Also looking forward to Senior Exerstart which starts back up in March, twice a week for an hour each.

    Charlene, It is an rough and emotional time for you with your DH in and out of the hospital. I'm surprised you didn't gain a lot more so maybe you didn't eat as much as you think. I'll be praying for your DH to feel better and strength for you to carry on. I know when I get hit with a stressful situation I often turn to food for comfort which is the way I ended up so heavy now. All things considered I think you're doing well. Take good care of yourself and your DH.

    Charlene, it will come off when you get yourself and your DH squared away. I think it is always a little hard to get back into the sweing of things, especially when something disrupts our lives or comfort zone. You had a lot going on with him, but I think you will soon find your way again. Great job on the book read! I love to read, myself. I usually keep a running list of the books I've read or ones I want to read. I have a goal to read 100 books in a year, but I've had that same goal for many years and it hasn't happened yet!! I like to do other things, too! LOL! Good luck to you as you figure out all the things you need to do to help you be successful! Hugs, Jeannie

    I was gone for a couple of week and had a lot bigger gain than that. You can get that back off in no time!
