Wow. Has it been a bad month! Nothing terrible, really. I just got sort of fuzzy in my focus. I'd see a bowl of taco chips and grab one or two on my way by. I'd feel like having chocolate--and give in just a little too often. I even had a bowl of cereal a couple of nights before bed. (Part of how I got here in the first place!)
I don't binge-eat--no, I graze uncontrollably--one small bite after another.
I am pleased I haven't actually gained anything: in fact I lost seven pounds this month. I know that for some of you this would be a celebration: not a cause for a whole re-commitment speech! But to put that in context: on plan and with exercise I lost 20 lbs in June! Really, I don't want to just lose weight, I want to be the poster child for losing weight. (Is that bad?
Of course, the tortoise crossed the finish line before the hare did...so I guess speed isn't really the point.
Still, I know that a lot of my success/failure was due to getting the support I needed here: without it, I'm Dr. Strangelove with food in the hand.
So I am "back." I'm really busy, though, now, so I'm worried I don't know how to spend enough time here to stay motivated and not so much time (which is easy to do) that other things are neglected.
Anyway, I'm back and happy to "see" you all again!
