Vacation from diet not healthy eating.
Wednesday, March 11, 2009
It has been almost a year since I joined SP. When I began ~ I honestly thought I would have no problem losing the weight I wanted to. Had done it before why not now. Besides that, after having a heart attack I had learned to eat healthy and had stayed healthy.
Made the decision to join a team and joined a challenge every time one was posted. Challenges usually lasted five or six weeks and all that was required was to lose five pounds. I never did. A pound or two was all I managed. Hated weigh-in Monday. Had finally only lost 8 pounds ~ before joining SP I had lost five pounds, so total loss 13 pounds, in almost a year? Very discouraged I joined another challenge in March. After a week I knew I could not continue to put myself through this torture every Monday....I took a deep breath and quit. Continued with the team but said, "Bye, Bye to the Challenge. Have not been on the scale since.
Still watching what I eat and counting my calories ~ some days I know I go over and the next day I am ultra careful to go under. Actually I feel better because I am totally in charge ~ I am not in a competing mode with myself. It is okay if I indulge or not. In a month I will check the scale and see the damage I have done or the success I have achieved.
With the thirteen pounds gone at least my clothes are fitting better, maybe if I had not joined the challenges I would not have lost the eight pounds with SP who knows. This is what I will find out with this little experiment I have entered into with myself. I will honestly let you know what happened in a month.
