Winter blahs and some family issues have caused me to backslide and lose my willpower to get this weight off. I knew I was backsliding when I gained a pound last month and quit keeping my food log. I tried to pump myself up by buying an exercise mat, a couple videos to dance with, some weights and made a large poster board of pictures of the exercises I needed to do get rid of the inner tube that is supposed to be my waist.
When I get home from work in the evenings I’m wasted. All I want to do is sit in my recliner and put recipes on index cards, read magazines or my book, or sleep while watching the television!! I just feel worthless!!
I go back to visit my weight coach tomorrow and hope she’ll have some advise and wisdom to get me back on track. I sure would like to lose another ten pounds by summer. I started out at 187 (I think) in September and I just can’t get down past that 170 mark and am terribly afraid I’ve gained this month. Of course, making desserts and mac & cheese on the weekends doesn’t help either. BUT, in my defense, I still do not eat after 7:00 in the evening! I guess it’s time to pull up my “big-girl panties” and get back on track regardless of the weather!!
