Yep I cannot ignore the scale, my non-fitting clothes or my flubber any longer. I’m fat and I am perilously close to a weight I swore I would never see again. I have gained 25 pounds since the Hunter entered my life. WTF
I know how it happened. The first 6 months or so we ate, smoked pot, ate some more and trust me we weren’t noshing on carrot sticks. I quit the gym. I ignored the creeping pounds. The Hunter gained weight too but he has shed it effortlessly.
Then I hit my funk – more food to fill the emptiness. Next came the stress of moving, the Hunter’s job situation, both of us starting our own companies and that kept the scale moving up. Add in the delicious, but not healthy, meals the Hunter prepares. It’s been a perfect storm, but now it’s time to get serious.
I tried the Fasting/One Meal a Day of no-carb, high fat diet/lifestyle but that sucked. Not for me.
Instead I been going to the gym and over the past couple of weeks my attendance continues to improve. I’m really out of shape, so I’m trying to be patient and not be hard on myself. My next step was to rejoin Weight Watchers after a 15 year hiatus. My first meeting was tonight. I’ll try a couple of meetings until I find the right group, but I need the accountability. WW has changed a few things so I’m re-learning parts of the program.
It sure was easy to get to this point, but it won’t be easy to correct. Once again I need patience, action steps and kindness to myself.
