So Simple Yet So Hard - Weigh In Wednesday

Pretty Strong Medicine
So the last time I actually took a picture of me on the scale and posted it on here was about a month ago and I weighed in at 210.1.

Well let's fast forward to today a month later with two vacation trips, one being a very long one down to Florida to see family that I haven't seen in a while. Coupled with many a mishap (speeding ticket, flat tire....). I didn't have the time or the care to count and pay attention to what I was eating and or exercise.

I realize that once I let bad habits start to slip back in they come back at full force and it's hard to re-establish good habits. So I stepped on the scale today and it's a whopping 214.7. Whomp whomp. Honestly, could have been way worse, didn't quite make it up to my highest ever at 216.3. But keeping at the rate I am going it could so easily get there in about another month.

I seem to be having a real hard time with food this time around, I guess it's not easy when it is all around you and the kids eat snacks and all I want is just chips and a rice krispie treat. That certainly is no excuse for getting lazy and not preparing snacks ahead of time. I just need to be more disciplined. Seriously though I feel like I am always hungry and just cannot get enough to eat. I think something in my brain is off and when I am full it doesn't know when to tell me. I probably need to go see a Dr. and see if that is indeed the case. I also have hypothyroid and am not on medication that I should be taking right now. And now I realize I am attempting to make excuses for my behavior. This doesn't really affect anyone but me but I feel like I need to get it into gear.

My goal for this next week is no soda, I need to get back into that routine again. Starting small but that's how change happens.

I have had 64 oz of water today so far and no soda, (can't say the same for the last week or so) and I did better then I have been doing food wise. I still have a long way to go. Thanks for all of the encouragement and sticking around. If I were yall I would be like "this chick is crazy why can't she get it together" well I am crazy and I am learning a lot about myself and it seems it's just gonna take a little longer for me to get it together then I would like.



  1. Set goals for yourself and push forward. Vacations can be a killer with diets!

    Thanks for linking up!

  2. Vacations are so tough, I struggle with the same problem when traveling. I tend to think that calories magically don't count...
