Major weigh down update #5
Well the holidays came and went. Food was everywhere I looked. I attended two parties. Hosted four luncheons in my home, not to mention the wonderful family dinners. Holidays are such a wonderful, fun and loving time. In our society we always think if two or more people are together there has to be an abundance of food. This is true especially during the holidays. I tried to remember that I was on a major weigh down journey and not over indulge. O.K. I have to admit I must not have done such a great job at it. I gained 7 lbs back of the 31 lbs I had lost. I was sad when I first looked at the scale. Then with my husbands help I realized it was no big deal. I would get back on track and lose that 7 lbs and more. I plan on continuing on my major weigh down plan. I have a little something coming up in July that has reset my mind. I WILL BE GRAND MOM AGAIN. I want to lose steadily until the baby is here. I want to feel great and have lots of energy to enjoy every moment of that new life.
I am going to go back to the beginning of my plan. Begin with the one dinner plate, decrease to salad plate and then to dessert plate. Meaning if it does not fit on the plate evenly (not piled up) it does not go into my mouth. When we dine out I will either have salad, soup or will split the one dinner with my husband. I am going to continue to cut down on sugar and carbohydrates. I will not take diet pills. I will not do the shake or liquid diet. I want to lose this weight and I want it to stay off. I realize practical, slow and steady is the best way to get the weight off and keep it off.
I have lost 2 of the 7 lbs that I gained. I will admit it is not going as well as I had hoped. I will get it off. It is just going to take a little more dedication on my part. I am now down 26 lbs.
I want to lose this weight for several reasons. I want to be healthier. I want to have more energy. I want to have a better appearance. I want to enjoy my grandchildren and not get so tired that I have to stop having fun. I want to live a long and happy life with my husband. I want to continue to witness and enjoy the wonderful men my sons have grown into. I want to climb to the top of the light house.
Thank you for your encouragement on my journey. Please continue to cheer me on. I do appreciate your ideas and suggestions.Please share:
