Well, my Weight Watchers weigh in was this morning and I’m not happy. I’m not surprised at all, but, I’m still not happy. Last week I weighed 225.2. This week I weighed 228.2!!! That’s a 3 pound gain. (sigh) I’m trying not to beat myself up over it but that’s hard when I saw it coming and didn’t do anything about it.
What it all boils down to is exercise. When I wasn’t working or going to school I exercised like crazy. I would walk over 10 miles in a day without batting an eye. Unfortunately, nowadays school has really put a damper on my walking regimen. I still walk as much as I can but it’s nothing close to the amount I use to walk. But, my lack of exercise is not the real problem. The real problem is my eating. When I was going on my long walks on a daily basis I could pretty much eat whatever I wanted and still lose weight. I was most definitely eating healthier, but was still getting large portions and snacking throughout the day. Without the exercise, that’s a luxury I don’t have.
So, here I am again, frustrated and angry that I keep gaining. Here I am posting this to the world with the hope that putting it out there for all to see will force me to do something about it. It hasn’t really helped that much in the past, but, hopefully this time will be different.
Now it’s a new week and I’m restarting my journey. It’s time for a do-over. I feel more committed than I have in a long time…though I think I’ve said that before. I’ll keep you posted on what happens when I get weighed in next week. I hope and pray that the weight will go in a different direction.
