Re-Start

Thank you Token Fat Girl for bringing me back from the dead. Her comment reminded me that I still have this blog and thinking about weight loss again.

Okay. So I’ve moved, but not really. I’m currently staying at my parents’ house and my life has turned upside down with disarray. All of our belongings are in boxes, I’ve started to work, and we’re working on our house at the same time. This moving thing really sucks. As a result I’m eating and eating and have no idea how much I weigh, because the scale is packed away somewhere. I had tried weighing on my sister’s scale, but the number was just so large that I decided that it sucked and refused to weigh myself until I got my old scale back. Unfortunately, at the rate we’re going, that won’t be anytime soon. What was suppose to be three weeks at my parents’ has turned into two months, and I’m tired of putting my life on hold, so tomorrow I will be weighing myself using my sister’s scale.

Exercise-wise, I haven’t been doing that much better. I’ve stopped weight training all together, but I still go biking. I love it. Listening to my music and daydreaming as I wiz by breath-taking scenery. Nothing gets better than that. But I do know I should probably reintroduce strength training back into my life (yuck). I will be looking at my schedule and see where I can put it in. With everything going on, I don’t know where to start.

Good for you for retaking control of things! I agree, moving sucks and can really throw you off track.

(On the other hand, I think packing and unpacking and schlepping boxes around counts for at least a little exercise!)

I really do think it's "getting back on track" over and over that makes for lasting success--everyone backslides, but it's the people who backslide and then give up who run into trouble.

I missed you! By god, moving house is one of the most stressful experiences one can have - though what Crabby said, it doesn't matter how many times you go off track as long as you get back on it.

Just hang in there. Everyone fall off the wagon. When you are ready, start again. Good luck! I can just imagine how stressful it must be for you!

At least you're still getting in some exercise ... a lot of people would use what you're going thru as an excuse to 86 it completely so I say you deserve a big pat on the back! And I think I'll pull out that bicycle myself...thanks for the inspiration!
