New start: Week 1

Well, this is my week 1….again. I’ve been pretty bummed out and down for several months now. The fit healthy side of me from when I was at my goal weight knows that if I just kept at it, I would get to my goal and I could maintain it. But the other side is completely upset and feels like just giving up because I have to re-lose again. That is the horrors of yo-yo dieting though. I’m back up in the 190s and for my height at 5’1, that’s not good at all. I’m obese and my BMI is up in the obese range as well. My blood pressure is wonky and I have felt extremely sluggish and lazy.

It used to be easy to get up and take a walk in the morning. Now, there are mornings I have a lot of trouble just waking up before 8 am much less getting a walk in. I force myself sometimes and feel great after but those first 20 minutes are TOUGH. I know the more I do it, the easier it becomes and every lb will make me lighter and easier to move around.

It’s tough. So I’m weighing in again. I’m going to weigh in every Friday as usual and force myself to face it and not be in denial. Even if I gain. I just gotta push myself out of this funk again and be my cheerleader, coach, etc.

I took several walks last week. It is still just barely maintained with no loss. I need to correct my intake.

Some lizards from my walk on Wednesday at sunset. The lizards love to come out and sunbathe when the sun goes down and it’s not super hot. I try not to disturb them when I walk by.

and to end this blog, my stats/weigh in:
