Actions Speak Louder Than Words
For the past two and half weeks I've been diligently tracking. Some days I am over, some days I am under but I am striving for a healthy balance and the "blue dot" range of points on the Weight Watchers plan.
Thanks for checking in with me :) I just didn't feel I had anything to post about while I was trying to get my motivation and determination back. I can't say it's 100% back. It's work. It feels like work. I wish it could always be effortless and come naturally, but it doesn't and when I stop "working at it", I fall hard. I have periods (like early last year) where it did seem easier although the work was still required.
It always has to be all consuming for me, if I don't think about what I eat, or plan what I eat, or plan exercise - weight loss doesn't happen.
I don't know if this is true for everyone. I don't know if there are people who don't have to make every single decision a conscious one to be successful.
I just know this is how it has to be for me.
Here's a quick rundown of my weights over the last two and a half weeks.
March 7 (Diabetic Clinic) 207
March 8 (at home) 206.5
March 22 (Diabetic Clinic) 205.7 (-1.3)
March 31 (at home) 204.6 (-2.4)
Total loss: 2.4 lbs
Even accounting for different scales, it seems I have had a small loss since I started being intentional and tracking again. With warmer weather, I'll be out walking more so April should be a more successful month.
