Back at it

Wednesday, January 09, 2019

Well, somehow over the holidays I gained 10 pounds. I actually think the gain started in late October and just kept going :/ I’m back at 170 right now. I like to stay right at 160, at my lightest I was 155 which was goal weight. I’m 40, metabolism is slowing down, and I made one bad food choice after another, stopped tracking food, and ate whatever I wanted all the time, stopped exercise as well. New goal to lose 10 pounds. I’ll post a new blog when I get there. I’m back to my exercise regimen and tracking food, both are a huge part of my weight loss goals. I started this journey at 202 pounds and I’m never going back to that. Thankful for a clear head and a new start. Here’s to getting my health and energy back!

    I had a rough month or so and am up too. Let me tell you now is the time to get it done. My metabolism is really slowed, I am 68. Even with tracking and exercise those pounds just kept coming. I am going to tweak my diet and adding strength training.

    It's really good to have the tools to control would weight/shape. Glad you are back at it. I too was 150 then ballooned up over a few years to 200, now heading back down. I'm 69 so this gotta happen!!!!

    Nutrition tracking was a game changer for me. I love it! The information I have gathered over the years continues to reap benefits and rewards and is instrumental in my efforts to maintain my health and well-being.

    Way to go on recommitting. Tracking food definitely makes a difference. My weight certainly likes to creep up when I'm not being a consistent tracker.

    Oh my gosh! I had to look twice at your post. This is exactly my story. Except for the age and scale number. I'm at 180. Need to be 150. You made my day. We are not alone! Good luck and keep going!!
