Day 339: What NOT to do when you are trying to lose weight

Howdy folks.  Man was I going strong.  Better than I had been, if my mind is good I was well on my way to weighing in the 170s...I had hit 30 lbs lost, THEN I went on vacation, and apparently I have been there all along.  I apologize for letting you down, but mainly I apologize for letting me down.  This is my problem and it is why I have a weight problem...So since Dec 27th of last year my goal was to lose 60 lbs...WELL, that ain't looking like a possibility at this point.  I started this blog at 212 lbs, today I sit at an ugly 195.  Yeah, I have lost 17 lbs total over the year, but I am sad that I had gained 13 lbs back after the summer vacation.  Depressing really...
SO what do I do about this?
I joined a gym, our new insurance will reimburse us so that was an easy decision!  So I started on Monday and I have gone 3 days in a row.  :o)
I am also starting back recording my food intake on Livestrong's My Plate.  That really helps me out!
I am still keeping accountable with my darling friend Dana who is dealing with her own stuff on the west coast.  So we share our struggles and we will do this together.

I am ready (again)  I know it is going to be a life long battle but it is the choice I am ready to live with.

Thanks for reading this if you did come back.

I'm so glad you're back! I knew you would be. :) It IS discouraging when we gain back what we fought so hard to lose, but look at it this way...you are 17 pounds lighter than you were last year! Stack 17 1# packages of butter, and you'll see that 17 is significant! It isn't what you were aiming for or hoping for, but I believe in celebrating our victories. :)

hug you, Cheryl

My WW leader always says, "Imagine where you would be if you weren't trying". Hang in there, it is not easy. Great job on the gym!!! I love recording my workouts on Daily Mile!
