OK - back to tracking! I've gained almost 15 pounds since Labor Day and it needs to stop!

So far so good today (it's only 8AM LOL)

I'm trying to be relatively "good" through the next few days and then really buckle down and get back on track. I've already gained enough weight that I've stopped weighing....that's BAD...need to be able to breathe in my pants again....

I too need a good kick in the butt to get serious...but until all the stress in my life eases up it is probably not realistic. I know where to come for accountability when I am ready to move on.

Cals: 1193
Carbs: 43/30 (a little higher than I'd like because I had a low-carb wrap- we lost power in the house, so I was scrambling for a protien meal in the dark. Settled on a tuna wrap).

Exercise: yes, 55 min
Multi: yes

Still nicely dark ketostiks. Where is that weight change?

At the moment my biggest downfall is all the wonderful fresh tropical fruits. I am not going to beat myself up over eating them. If I can avoid the sugar and wheat (pastries) I am meeting my current goal.

I love the town my daughter lives in, the mountains are beautiful and give lots of challenging exercise as we walk pushing a big double stroller. It has been uncharacteristically hot as well.
