Today I weighed and have have gained 14 pounds since November 2013. That is very depressing. I stopped tracking food, weight and did not do regular exercise during this time. I did walk a few times per week, but nothing on a regular basis. I know that I went out to eat more than I normally would. Anyway, I am really having a wake up call this morning. I decided to weigh and it was not what I expected. I knew my clothes were getting tight, but I was shocked by the gain.
I am realizing I am going to be one of those people that must track food and weigh in. I was in a dream world thinking I could coast. But no! That is not working for me.
Here is to basically starting over on my weight loss journey. I knew that I was not as energetic as I had been in the past. I was even getting winded when I walked. That has never happened to me. I know I am getting older, but really, I want to be fit.
Okay, I have to get busy. I must get busy. I have much work to do to get this load off yet again.
This is day one for me. I don't want to be a yo yo dieter. I need stability. For me, it looks like I must be accountable.
Ok, now the pity party is over. I know my mistakes and I must meet the challenge to become physically fit and weigh within a healthy weight for my height.

Yesterday, my husband and I had a fantastic day trip and I know that I ate way off track. Everything started out pretty good, but as the day went on I just enjoyed the food along with all the beautiful sights on the country roads in west Texas. I got a salad with a cup of fruit at chick fil la. I love to eat fruit on the salad. Anyway, I put honey mustard on it, thinking that would be low in calories. Ugh! The honey mustard was 100 calories! Oh well, I will just count it. And be done with it.
Next I decided to eat a bite of my husband's order of waffle fries. Yikes! That triggered a eating spree of eating them until they were gone. Glad my husband was too busy getting out of Dodge and didn't notice.
On to the Billy the Kid museum in Hico, TX we go! We loved the little town and the great people. It is a small town and we recently saw it reviewed on Bob Phillips Country Reporter. We are getting ideas for our mini trips from him and also the Day Tripper show.
We decided to eat at the Mexican restaurant a couple of doors down from the museum. Oh my goodness, I enjoyed the veggie quesadillas, guacamole, salsa , and chips! The chips always get me started on a happy dance to eating.
Anyway, turn out the lights. The party is over. It back to counting and tracking my food today.
Yesterday sure was fun though.
Well, Hico is not really west Texas but it is west of Fort Worth, so that seems west to me.
And oops, we went to a wonderful chocolate factory in Hico and I sampled the tasty chocolates.
Enjoy your day. I will too!

Ok for me to lose a half pound or even a whole pound it seems that it takes forever to show on the scale. Forever meaning at least a week before the scale goes down. It is like a sledge hammer working diligently hammering away and then finally, bingo! It is gone. I am thrilled for the loss. But then my dear husband decides he needs to lose some weight and in 3 days, he loses 11 pounds. I am so happy for him and I tell him that is wonderful. Keep up the good work! But deep inside me, I feel a little frustration and maybe I am envious of his achievement. Then I feel guilty of not being able to do as well as he does.
It is what it is, but still I would like to some day magically look on the scale and say, I lost ten pounds! Yes, I know there is no magic in losing weight and that his loss is probably a lot of water loss and may not stay gone for very long. Still I am a little jealous of not being able to say, I just lost ten pounds this week.
Now that I vented, I feel somewhat better. Off to the toolbox to get the sledge hammer.

Well, I am not one to say much about myself, but I am very excited to see the scale move down. Since I have been tracking the past ten days or so, I have lost 3.6 pounds. I know that I have to track every bite of food and stay within my healthy eating range. Doing that every day will help me make my healthy weight goal.
I really am beside myself in happiness this morning. I am sipping my coffee and letting the gladness sink in. Guess I can go to the grocery store and pick up a bag of flour and say to myself, that is the amount of weight that went good bye. Way to go and here I go to lose more weight until I meet my goal. Then I am going to get me a pretty little black dress and keep on smiling. Cheryl
