Since last Christmas I have struggled to lose weight – losing and gaining the same few pounds over and over. Partly – maybe even mostly, because I have lost motivation – not ALL motivation, just about half of it. I might do great for a week or two lose a pound or two and then have a few bad days and gain them back. I hope by starting this blog I will motivate myself to lose my last 30 pounds and then of course keep them off! I also hope I can motivate others and share some new food ideas or whatever else I decide to blog about.
I spent last week in Toronto and seem to have brought back about 10 pounds with me! I really hope that some of it is water weight – this Monday I weighed in at 170.2 and I am going to use that as my weigh in; before I left it was 160-161. That also puts me at 44.8 pounds lost and not 50 *sniff cry sniff* – all well, no point worrying about it now – whats done is done! All I can do is get back on track. For right now I am just going to get back into counting my calories, in the next week or so I am going to get back in the habit of exercising again as well. For about a month before I left I tried counting points (weight watchers) and I lost a bit doing that, but for me calorie counting just makes more sense and seems a tad easier – after all, everything has calorie information on the package.
I am not doing anything different now then I was a year and a half ago when I started, I will still be counting calories and exercising but I just need to get serious again – step this up again. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see 150 by Christmas, but I will just take it one day at a time.
