This is June 1st.
The beginning of summer and the beginning of a new month. A perfect time to kick off something new: losing the weight I’ve regained.
When I lost weight 3 years ago it was the first time I ever lost weight. So this is the first time I’ve regained it. I know many people do this over and over again. Personally, I find that idea quite confabulating. The emotions I feel when I see the scale rising up are not pleasant- there is too much self-loathing and negative body image going on. I cannot image doing this to myself over and over.
What I’m proposing is taking the steps to lose the weight -and learning to keep it off. I mean, I kept it off for over a year. Then I got lazy, slipped back into eating/cooking the way I had for years (and the way my husband always did).
When you do the things that weren’t successful the first time, you get the same results. Hello 30 pounds.
So beginning today, I’m
-wrapping on my BodyBugg and keeping track of my calories burned.
-grabbing my android phone and entering what I consume in Calorie Counter.
-reporting it all here.
Tomorrow: the beginning numbers and the goal.
Who would like to join me on this?
