I'm a bit discouraged today because when I weighed this morning, I had gained back 1.4 pounds. Weight loss is such a struggle! I thought I was doing good, too. I had started walking more and drinking more water. I had cut way back on the colas and sweet tea, limiting myself to only a couple a day. Then, to step on the scale this morning and see that I have gained was such a downer.
I thought about giving up. But, I decided that that is what I have always done. I have always just decided that I would settle with how I was. It's too bad that I can't just be happy with the body that I have. Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Is that what I'm doing? Maybe. I know I should change things up more. I need to try harder. I need to make it a point to walk or exercise EVERY day, when AT ALL possible.
I also know that women's bodies are complicated. One day we are retaining water, and the next day we're not. OH! IT'S SO DADGUM HARD!!! I also know that a large part of weight loss is mental. There are so many factors to consider!! It just makes me want to throw in the towel. But, I can't. And I won't. Not this time. I must be determined that I can do this!
So, dear blogger friends, here I go on another week. I will strive to do the daily exercise. I will strive to consider how EVERYTHING that I put into my mouth is going to help or hurt me in achieving my goal.
And, I hope that I come back next Wednesday with a minus on that scale.
