Checking In

So it happened again... I went to weigh-in and gained 0.6 lb. I am hovering around the 10 to 12 lb loss point and I know why... it's because I am not putting in the effort. I'm trying to make healthier food choices but not all the time, and I'm not tracking my food more than half a day two or three times a week. I'm not working out. And whatever my reasons or excuses, that does not change the result. Or lack of result.

So, here's to a new week, a new day, a new "right now" to turn things around.

Some people seem to speed-skate through the weight-loss journey. They know what they want, how to get it, and they DO it. They take the time, make the plans (meal planning, planning for workouts, etc), and do the work. What is the difference between them and me? Today, commitment. But tomorrow, maybe nothing. Wait and see.

To be continued... tomorrow. And the next day. And the next. Until I reach my goal. And then to be continued the rest of my life as I maintain my health and fitness. Stay tuned!

Don't be so down. :(

For the first two weeks this month I gained .06+ EACH week. What the heck? .06 must be the magic number. I think Merry Mary also had gained that last week!

Anyway, I'm finally losing again after a two week drought. Just hang in there. Have you been tracking sodium intake? Are you taking your measurements too? I know you can do this!!!!
