Not a good day

Sunday, April 06, 2014

Today I weighed and have have gained 14 pounds since November 2013. That is very depressing. I stopped tracking food, weight and did not do regular exercise during this time. I did walk a few times per week, but nothing on a regular basis. I know that I went out to eat more than I normally would. Anyway, I am really having a wake up call this morning. I decided to weigh and it was not what I expected. I knew my clothes were getting tight, but I was shocked by the gain.

I am realizing I am going to be one of those people that must track food and weigh in. I was in a dream world thinking I could coast. But no! That is not working for me.

Here is to basically starting over on my weight loss journey. I knew that I was not as energetic as I had been in the past. I was even getting winded when I walked. That has never happened to me. I know I am getting older, but really, I want to be fit.

Okay, I have to get busy. I must get busy. I have much work to do to get this load off yet again.

This is day one for me. I don't want to be a yo yo dieter. I need stability. For me, it looks like I must be accountable.

Ok, now the pity party is over. I know my mistakes and I must meet the challenge to become physically fit and weigh within a healthy weight for my height.

    I so know just how you feel.

    That's ok. You can do anything when you only have to do it for one day. This journey is about doing your best, one day at a time.

    You will have days when you follow the plan, and you will have days when you do the best you can. And, really, the best you can is, wait for it, the best you can! LOL

    Enjoy today.

    I just noticed that John said pretty much the same thing. That's ok, it bears repeating!

    Tracking our food is a hugh tool in losing weight. Getting some form of exercise is necessary also. It has to be fun so you will want to do it. You can do this when you realize how important it is to your health and well being. You have beautiful grandchildren that need you there for them. I am a click away if you need me! Hugs. Pat

    I was in exactly the same place twelve days ago, Cheryl, and know the mix of shock and dismay you feel...disappointment, too. I also understand the realization that we're likely better off logging than not. TODAY is the day that matters, each 24 hours a single retry. We can do this, Friend.

    emoticon This time you will make a plan and stick to it. (Just don't make it so impossible to do).

    The past is just that, past. Live today as you know you should every day and success will follow you to the end of your days.

    Make today a great day!
