I made it two weeks. Lost 12 pounds. It was awesome, I was proud of my self. I was doing it.
And then this
Why? The easiest answer is that I lost control. I had missed breakfast one morning because of a change in my schedule. Ended up eating my oatmeal for lunch, by the time dinner came around I was so hungry I couldn't stand it. The Wunder Hubs and I decided to go out to eat and treat ourselves. We ordered food, instead of a salad or grilled chicken and veggies, I went for the chicken tenders. And what the hey, we ordered fried pickles too. It was glorious, I ate until I couldn't stand it any more. I was so disappointed in myself, then the next day came. I had lost my drive, I did OK, but not great. I stopped tracking my progress in MyFitnessPal and stopped trying. Thankfully Wunder Hubs has maintained and is keeping up his progress, I am very proud of him.
I find I tell myself that "Once we get the house, we will have the treadmill and a tighter budget. That will help me stay on track" Yeah right Martie, that will work. Who knows, that might just be the change I need to get set on the right path again. I hope so.
