Cautiously optimistic

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Well, I was doing pretty well up until a couple of weeks ago when we lost power for several days. Since we had no water (on a well), we spent as little time at home as possible, which meant eating out most of the time. I gave in to the depression about having no power and comforted myself with food. Even though I tried not to eat too much or things that were too bad for me, the combination of some fast food and no exercise (no power = no Wii, no treadmill, no exercise bike!) showed up on the scale.

I have spent the last couple weeks undoing that damage (.5 pounds to go), and I have set a new goal for myself -- a BMI in the healthy range by my 30th wedding anniversary, 7/26/10. I am hopeful. It is definitely attainable -- about 1.5 pounds a week. I am doing better now exercising than I have in the past -- I even occasionally look forward to it :-) -- and with the weather improving (and more daylight), I should be able to do more outside.

I told DH my plan and he will support me .... I WILL do this!
