Difficulty Staying with the Healthy Lifestyle.

Monday, January 13, 2014

Since September, I have not lost any weight and may have actually gained a few pounds. It is not that I do not know what to do. I lost 50 lbs once, and it was not difficult. I can certainly do it again. It just takes paying attention to what I eat and exercise regularly. Though I have not put on all the weight I loss, I have put enough on that my knees are starting to bother me again and I just do not feel as good about how I look.

Well, to keep me honest and doing what I want to do, I decided to keep a public blog this time and admit when I go off. Do not get me wrong. I am not doing a stringent, boot camp type program. That just is not me. If I deny myself something, then I feel deprived and unhappy. What I want to achieve is balance. If I really want something--piece of candy or glass of wine--fine. What leads to the weight gain is not the occasional indulgences--its the habitual actions.

I know I feel better if I do not have a couple of glasses of wine before dinner, but it is a habit. So this is my commitment.

    Wine if fine in my book too!! I prefer dry red since I know I' can sip a small glass for a good hour or two & that's all I need :) Cheers to you & good luck with your goals this week! emoticon
