I’ve been struggling!
I really want to achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle, but it’s not been easy.There is a huge difference between knowing what to do and actually doing it.
I consider myself an average woman, with a problem that affects many. There’s has been so much written about this topic, much research done. Many blogs written. The bottom line on weight loss, dieting, becoming healthy?
For me right now though, and I’m sure most of us have experienced this, is how do I pull this knowledge together to make it work for me?
Some reasons it’s kinda fallen apart lately…
· My cronic back and tailbone pain has once again made an appearance.
· We’re having our kitchen renovated and I’m a little frustrated in the cooking department right now.
Ok, I tried to find more reasons, and they all just became excuses! J
As of yesterday morning (forgot to weigh this morning) I weigh 254.8 lbs. My BMI tells me I am right on the line between obesity and morbid obesity. This is not where I want to be. It seems like I enjoy it here though, bcause I’m spending so much time here!!
The first 25 lbs lost were between October and February. It went easy and pretty fast, I thought. But I've been between 251 and 254 for 4 months now and though I had been exercising pretty regulary, my eating habits have pretty much gone back to pre-october. Pretty ugly!
Allowing myself treats, half-hearted exercising, even not allowing myself to be held accountable through my blog are just paving my road to failure.
BUT… I haven’t failed, right? Because I haven’t quit.
I went back to October to see how I started out, what did I do then and I’m not doing now? The most obvious answer was TRACKING my food. Regardless of what I ate, I wrote it down. Simple!
So, I guess, since I know what the problem is, I know what the solution is, the rest should be easy, right? Well, even solving the most simple math problems takes a process, and so does subtracting the pounds from my body. J
So, today, I’m back to tracking, and I will fit in some exercise, I’ll just have to make it happen.
