I can’t tell you when it was, but I decided that I should step on that scale since it had been a few weeks since I had. You see, I had been staying around the same weight for months now and I was fine with that. I was exercising a bit each day by walking the dogs, even in the snow…they got to go!
But I didn’t always take the time each day to do all of the challenges that I was posting; thinking that walking the dogs was enough…. I shouldn’t take so much time researching things to add and since it takes so much time…I can’t to the exercises. It’s not that important for me to do the challenges that I post I thought…but it is really to me so that I don’t feel like a fraud or fake and I hate that feeling! And these challenges are for me as well as others in the group so I will get back into doing all that I post!
I was focusing on that other job. Focusing on thinking about getting the house in order; getting another place to live; I brought candy to work, just for my scratchy throat, but was eating too much; working on… you name it and then I stepped on the scales…6-pound increase? Of course it must be due to water weight or something such as that. So I tried some other days, but still 205 it tells me.
Then I didn’t log it on here. I was embarrassed but of course, I still told myself excuses for not logging my weight gain. I have to go to work; I’ll step on the scale when I’m logging on Spark People next time; I’ll get this off in a week or so, so don’t worry about it. The list goes on.
My what I thought was going to be my short-term goal this year, has been extended. I wanted to get to where I would no longer be considered obese, which would be when I hit 172 lbs or less and I wanted to hit that before Spring got started, but with all of those months of not losing much or not losing at all, or now gaining, I won’t see that goal until around June 30th of this year, but that is now my new short term goal.
So this is truly why I started my March Cardio Challenge, because I fell off the wagon and I need to run; not walk in order to catch up!
