I need to lose some weight. I know this comes as no shock to anyone here. But, I have not lost a pound in so long it isnt funny.
I lost and gained. And it seems, every week or two I lose and gain the same 2 or 3 pounds over and over again.
I am ready to start losing again.
and I am at my wits end as to how to proceed.
Sitting here listening to the rain outside, and knowing there will be no walk for at least 2 or 3 days. I have resolved to get back to strength training and my next purchase is going to be a kettlebell.
The next thing is going to be to focus on my mid section, or tummy.
I have neglected this area for far too long and its time to really begin toning, as much as is possible.
So, with the winter keeping me inside and off the track, I am going to set aside an hour daily for nothing but mid section, core workout.
I am not OVER eating, I stay pretty well within calories, but I am not getting the protein or veggies that I need.
I discovered honey oat granola bars and I fear they are my kryptonite.
I have about 10 bars in the house and plan to put them in Honey's dinner bucket so I dont eat them.
I am considering doing, weight watchers again, only on my own at home, since the nearest meeting is well over 20 miles one way.
And I dont really have the expendable cash right now for anything like that.
I am really struggling here with eating the right foods.
I just want to get this weight loss back on track and if it is 1 pound a week I can live with that, and in fact, would consider that a huge success compared to what I have been doing.
Accountabilty really matters.
I let my Sparking slide and now I see just how important it was for me to be here daily and tracking and talking to others and I feel like I could have saved myself alot of stress if I had just kept up.
