New found focus
Monday, February 19, 2007
Well, it is Monday morning once again and I seem to have a new found focus on restarting on the weight loss challenge once again. For awhile now I have just been half heartedly following any type of program. I've been watching the scale go up every week , if not daily. I've been blaming the weight gain on my thyroid, which we are still trying to regulate, but I know some of it has to do with the way I have been eating and the lack of exercise I have been doing. Yesterday I stuck to my plan, stayed within limits and journaled everything. I still did not do any type of exercise but that will come, my body has actually been yearning it. It has just been so cold outside and my knee and hip have really been bothering me again. All excuses though as I have the treadmill and bike to use here at home and I know both the knee and hip would probably feel better if I did exercise them and get some of this regained weight back off. I signed up for water aerobics and was really looking forward to starting it again but found out the end of last week that they would not be having it. They did not get enough people to sign up. I'm kind of bummed about that, as I really enjoy water aerobics, but this time I was not looking forward to putting a swim suit on with having regained some of this weight.
I bought a Doctor's weights and balance scale awhile back and usually weigh most mornings. Lately I was avoiding the scale but have decided to go back to the daily weighing. I think the new increase in my Synthroid may have finally kicked in and I want to give it a fair try instead of eating what I want and then blaming my weight gain on it. This morning the scale was down one pound. I know it will be a slow process but better slow than not at all. So I am once again on my way to a new me!
