Weight-loss update

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!!
