So many things are going through my mind this evening. It's been a while since I blogged. And 'someone' reminded me of that... this past week.
1. Support group
3. Meals, planning, logging
4. Diet Pop
6. It's time for change
About a year ago I started a weekly support group. The group is still going. Sometimes I'm there alone. Sometimes 2 or 3 of us. Probably a total of 20 folks have been in the room at one time or another. We are looking at changing the time that will help a few people that haven't been able to come at the present time. There are times I want to quit the group but I know it's another way for me to reach out to others and to help myself in the process.
I texted a trainer this evening that I've worked with before. I let her know I'd gained back up to 300 --- when I was working with her I was in the 270s-280s. I know that I need to be willing to spend time and some money to get back on track.
Meals - planning and logging: I'm thinking of trying some frozen meals again supplemented with lots of added vegetables and fresh fruits as well as some healthy snacks like nuts and dairy. Back to making planning a priority and keep track of the food daily. It used to be a priority for me --- and it worked.
Diet pop streak --- at this time I'm going to work on the food, exercise and water but not worry about the diet pop at the moment. There may be a time when I have to address this again but for now is not the time --- there's an emotional connection with diet pop that I'm just not willing to continue working on at this time.
Emotions --- some of the thought processes today have been having some time off work waiting on a repairman, watching a weight loss program on TV this evening. But it's a good process --- not a poor me thought process but its time to change things up process.
I've let 7 months slip by and I'm where I was in January physically but not where I was emotionally.
I know I have what it takes ---- I just have to take the time to use the tools I have available and take the time it takes for ME.
