I haven't figured out the solution to my weight loss woes yet. I don't know that there is any big solution. I've pondered trying to make it fresh and new with a different tracking system, a while back (long while) I rejoined weight watchers, I switched meetings, I've challenged myself, I've set goals, I've made bets, I've joined weight loss groups and I've tried sending daily/weekly emails to accountability partners. It's all to no avail.
I HAVE stopped the weight gain. That's an awesome thing. I'd rather be sitting in a holding pattern versus gaining. However, I don't like myself at this weight. I'm not happy with myself. I remember how awesome I felt at my lower weight and I want that again. But I just can't seem to turn the ship around!
I don't have any solution. I wish I did.
I do have a plan.....it's simplistic really. Fake it until I make it! ha ha ha. No, while that idea has merit, it's not my plan.
My utterly simplistic plan is easy. It all revolves around one thing. I need to TRACK my food. I know for me that if I'm tracking I am more apt to stay somewhere relatively close to my projected caloric budget. It's that simple really.
I do take comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one out there that is having the same issues of turning the ocean liner of weight loss/weight gain around. I have lurked for quite some time on the blog of bitch cakes.....she stopped writing regularly (boo) but is still out there and still imparts a bit of wisdom and thoughts on occasion. She posted yesterday. I could TOTALLY feel her post. I could totally get what she said. It could have been written by me! It is a common theme....
Sooooo if I could figure out the solution....I could be a millionaire! Hmmmmmmm Just a thought!
And just because........
