Maaaaan, after eating like I lost my damn mind last week at Blogalcious, I came home and bravely stepped on the scale to weigh in and see what the damage was.
Now, keep in mind that I hadn’t really stepped on the scale all month anyway, so I had a number from a month ago in my head and was thinking about the addition of maybe 2-5 pounds from the Whataburger-red velvet cupcake-tex mex -alcohol induced coma that I was coming out of.
The number of the scale was so horrendous that I got off, took Pookah to school, and then went directly to the gym for a run.
And then went directly to Waffle House for a meal afterwards.
I’m giving myself the side eye don’t worry.
But see, this is the problem:
THE EATING IS OUT OF CONTROL.
I could blame it on hormones( but all month tho?)
But I think the real culprit is stress.
Unfortunately, the stress is not going away.
But if I don’t watch it, my backside is going to keep spreading and I will not be able to fit into my largest pair of jeans( which are already tight).
I say all of this to say…
That I need to loose 30 pounds?
Yes I do.
That I need to exercise regularly?
Yes I do.
That I need to gain some self control and stop stuffing my face?
Easier said than done.
It seems that the closer I get to that magical age of 40, the more my body decides to rebel and hold on to whatever unwanted padding that I gain.
I used to be able to loose 10 pounds in a month, just by eating right and exercising.
Now, I could eat salad all day everyday and loose 1 pound.
ONE STINGY POUND.
I need a new game plan, but I feel like, me, the professional weight loss girl, can’t loose weight!
I’m ready for something drastic, but don’t know what.
No green smoothie challenge( didn’t work)
No low carb( didn’t work)
No calorie counting( I manage to cheat, so THAT DIDN’T WORK!)
See a pattern?
Now I haven’t tried it in years, but I’m so desperate that I’m considering going back to Weight Watchers.
Because…it’s the only thing I haven’t tried again.
Wish me luck.
Cause I’m not buying a whole new wardrobe.
The first step is always the hardest.
