My first monthly weigh in GAIN.
The overall picture? I am still down 2 lbs. from 2 months ago, BUT... I think my grazing is catching up to me.
Confession? I've been a carb addict. I've been grazing. I've been standing in the kitchen "taste testing" anything and everything I can find. Then when I go overboard, I go lay down, let it pass, then will actually find myself in the fridge again! Blah!!
What is wrong here??
I think I know.
#1: Skipping meals...
I've been skipping meals. Or eating very little all day long, then at dinner I am starving and want to eat from 6 p.m. til I pass out from carb overload at 11 p.m.
No skimping all day on food!
#2: Not enough water...
Set goal of 64 oz. and DRINK IT!
#3: Eating past the point of saity.
I have pushed past the point of "full" too much lately.
Measure portions and stop when it's gone.
#4: Not enough exercise.
I have counted working and house stuff as exercise for too long.
Get dvd's out, go outside and walk, move MORE!
#5: Carb Lover.
I love carbs. I love crunchy, salty, doughy, sweet, etc.
Break carb addiction and get back to basics.
I am learning that just because I've lost 130ish lbs...the battle to keep it off will be just real as the battle to get it off in the first place! My love/hate relationship with food will never go away, but I am so thankful that I am in a better place to fight.
Right now I have 17 ish lbs. to lose (thank you regain... grr)... but 17 lbs is so much easier and more doable than having 147 lbs. to lose!
I will finish this. You can bank on that.
