SG Blog - Reflections.....
Saturday, May 03, 2014
Hmmmm….reflecting on this SG challenge….
I did not lose any weight.
I did not lose any inches.
I did not meet any of my goals.
I also did not work very hard.
And I ate too much junk and had too many meals out.
I have been on Spark since Dec 2009.
It is so discouraging to work hard for three years, tracking calories, staying in range and doing lots of exercise, and losing only 18 pounds, knowing your body is working against you. That is about 5 ounces a month. At this rate I will reach my goal weight in …… (wait for it)…. 5 years and 4 months. If I don't allow myself to get derailed again.
To lose just 22 more pounds.
I think my determination and will power took a year and a half off. I blame too much on my bum thyroid, which caused the weight gain in the first place. And menopause. And being 54. And having a stressful job.
Instead of my inadequate effort.
I really think I need to get my head on straight and get back on track.
