Me too….I am just trying to regain my program. I don’t feel like I am accomplishing very much but still can’t discount the progress. I am healthier than I was last year and weigh less than I did last year at this time….The only really good news is that I KNOW I have gained weight and it is going to stop.
How many of you still have some fat clothes in your closet? I have one pair of jeans four sizes bigger than I am wearing now and one huge shirt stuck up on the top shelf….my cat seems to likes sleeping on them. A couple of months ago I decided to have two suits re-cut at the tailors. I wanted to be able to get some use out of them but I did not want to buy new clothes because I was convinced I was still losing weight.
Instead I started gaining weight. Damn! Now one is uncomfortable and one is just too small. An alarm went off in my head. So I cleaned out my closet and got rid of everything else that was a bigger size. I sort of drew a line in the sand and said “No More!” I am not gaining any more weight. I am not backing up! I had Michele alter some slacks that were too big so I could get some use out of them. Everything else I gave away.
All last week I tracked my food 75% of the time. Some days were 100% but some were just spotty. My goal this week to track everyday for 7 days. Next I am going to get moving…nothing big just do something physical every day. Played golf yesterday and walking today….everyday this week.
And I am renewing my membership in the ATX 100. This group has helped me and so many others. I don’t want to go this next year without being a part of ATX 100.
The other important point is….this is for the rest of my life. Sure I have goals along the way and I have missed some of them. But I have not lost sight of the Life Goal…Keep living a healthier life style.
For those of you who care enough to read this blog….thank you! For those of you that gain something positive from reading this….all I can say I hope that it helps.
But I am responsible for my own health….So I am going to take the good along with the bad and just keep moving forward.
Happily Married to Michele and living in central Texas.
