The weekly meetings help keep me going. Getting compliments from those around me pushes me too. This past week, the compliments have been many, but I don't feel that I can truly accept them. Mainly, because I have been slacking in tracking my food for the past couple of months. My husband tells me to just do it. Really, it isn't that difficult, because a) I have the app on my phone and b) I have access to e-tools that come with my Weight Watchers membership. I increasingly have been sneaking food. I never thought I had a food issue before, but now I realize that I do. I am not sure why - so I hope that there will be more of this topic to come with the sole purpose of figuring out my closet food issue.
I have had weeks where I gain or stay the same. I have also had weeks were I took the weight off. I really must not be so hard on myself because here are the results thus far:
I feel that I have come along way. Why don't I get it when I am in a funk? Why does it take a disagreement with my co-worker or hubby for it to sink into my skull? I know I have a long way to go, but I am knocking on the door of a 20 pound/10% lose. Another 15ish and I am at my BC (Before Children) weight.
I have been working out quite regularly. I even signed up for the Lazyman Triathlon at my YMCA. I have 6 weeks to complete 2.5 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking, and 26.2 miles of running or walking. I have been good at the biking and walking. The other day, I biked almost 16 miles in one sitting. Tuesday nights I have been taking golf lessons. Tomorrow night is my last one :( Well, until I sign up for another session ;)
I do know that I gain muscle much faster than I lose fat, especially when I am working out regularly. I am careful to not do too much strength training, but enough to keep up good health practices. Now, that I have truly examined the physical results I need to drive myself to keep on keeping on!
The whole purpose of keeping this blog was to keep me on track. To push me and keep myself accountable. I am rededicating myself to post weekly updates. Well, except 7/4, because I will be celebrating my wedding anniversary (a couple of days late) and Independence Day with my DH (who tries really hard to be supportive despite any BS I may try to throw at him).
