I've successfully gained back most of my weight I had lost.
Let me count the ways it happened:
1) a little dab won't hurt, I've been so good lately,
2) It doesn't matter if I have a little of this
3) it's ok if I skip exercising today, I've been really good lately
Then it was I'll start exercising after I recover from surgery...which was
Dec '07. Hmmm....well I guess I'm recovered from surgery and yet I still hadn't gotten back to exercising.
I started a new job in August...did I mention I'm very much an emotional eater? I handle stress by eating
Well, in Dec '08, I had a huge muscle spasm in my lower back, then it went into sciatica pain-the pain that shoots down the leg everytime you move. So that's finally getting better, I go to a chiropractor who's also a PT and an exercise physiolgist that specializes in rehabiliation medicine. It's great, they are working with me to teach me how to do exercises correctly so I won't re-injure myself.
And I've decided that South Beach is basically the only diet that works for me, limited good carbs and lots of veggies and very limited sugars. So starting today, it's back to phase 1.
This time I'll make it work. I'm also working on my emotional eating issues. Hopefully this is a combo that will work. Oh, hubby bought me Wii Fit along with Golds Gym and My fitness coach. I guess he wants me to be healthy. He's doing them too.
