Haven’t lost a pound in two weeks.
I’m bummed. It means that I likely need to be on a ‘diet’ instead of the weight dropping off of me by virtue of eating healthy. Since sugar/flour/processed food put the weight on, I’d hoped it would be as simple as eliminating those foods to get the weight off. I’m not giving up, but I’m beginning to think about how I just may need to count calories…or carbs. Because as we know, calories in, calories out. I think I’ll give it through September before I change anything. My hub feels confident that I just need to be patient. I’m not on a quick weight-loss plan.
But this is not the way of my life-long weight-loss experience. By now I’m usually getting my second (dieting) wind–feeling energized and like there’s no stopping me! But these days, it seems like I’m doing nothing at all about my weight. And I have to say, I’m not so sure I’m feeling that much better, either.
Have you noticed I haven’t mentioned exercise? I haven’t been exercising enough. I need to figure something out. Now that I’m back to school, going to the gym is not convenient. Getting committed to a walking regime right here at home is what I need to do. I’ve just got to get over this back-to-school hump. I’m just exhausted.
Diets are terrible. You can’t maintain them long term and when you go off there are negative repercussions. Stick to your healthy eating and find some time to do some type of exercise. On days that I’m too busy to do anything else, I walk. Sometimes it is 11:00 at night, but I get my walk in (I’m lucky that I can walk late where I live). If I’ve had a rough day, I promise myself I only have to walk around the block. Once I get out and moving, I usually find the energy to do more. The hard part is getting out the door.
You’re an inspiration. Thanks for your vote of confidence. For sure I need to get going with some exercise. Was thinking about getting the FitBit because of your success!
