Welp, I’m still at it. Still trying to lose this weight. Although if I’m honest, I’d admit that I haven’t really been trying at all. I’m back to being alone again. Hubster works long hours. Kids are in school. Friends have mostly moved away. During the week I am all alone and I haven’t exactly been handling it the best way. I’ve fallen back on old habits (re: stuffing myself silly with junk while hiding the evidence…albeit not super well given that I’m still fat. There is also a remarkably large butt divot in the couch).
Well, I’m following Weight Watchers. I’m attending meetings and weighing in, which helps me take some ownership in my tracking/food failures. I even go on weeks where I know the scale will not be kind.
I’m tracking way more than I’m not tracking. I’m tracking in my WW app and My Fitness Pal. Multiple forms of accountability and a variety of nutritional information. I can follow my macros on MFP, but stay within my points on WW.
I’m working out with a personal trainer once a week. She gives me a workout to do every other day (usually weights/kettlebells/TRX), and I try to get my cardio in on the other days. Sometimes that’s hitting the elliptical and track, sometimes that is a Zumba class.
I’m not sure if I’m getting anywhere just yet, but I’m making steps towards change.
