My assignment is to come back here and post, and I'm trudging around like the kids in the Staples back-to-school commercial
. I made it to OnderLand (barely), then gained some back. Sigh.
I started seeing my weight loss slow in March, stall in April, and then go in the opposite direction in May. My work and stress load is pretty high from Feb thru July--last year I held steady, but didn't lose. But gaining this year????
I don't know how to explain how I'm feeling about this. Bummed? Stressed? Irritated? Panicked? Complacent? Probably a bit of all that plus more. I'm feeling the heavy pack load of responsibility, and I just cannot carry everything. Paying attention to calories just isn't getting done.
I'm eating healthy food, not junk. Even skipping meals because I'm too busy to remember. But I'm not watching the carbs as carefully as I should. It's that extra piece of cheese I had a few times, the two slices of pizza that other time, the glasses of milk I never used to drink...oh, and flatbread with hummus. I'm frightened about how easily the pounds are piling back on. Stress'll do that to ya. And stupidity.
Denial is not a fun place to be, and I'd like to leave.
I've had a great weekend. The salads are made. Time to face reality and initiate Operation Austerity. (dreading the scale tomorrow)
