Too much eating and not enough exercise makes for a very grumpy, not to mention bloated...me!
Thanksgiving was wonderful as we celebrated with my great grandfather, aunts/uncles, cousins, along my parents and brother in Michigan. This was the first Thanksgiving we have traveled in a very long time, actually I think the first since we have had the kids.
Unfortunately there was a lot of food involved, including way to many pieces of pie. In case you can't tell from the title of my blog, sweets are my weakness! Seeing all those delectable pieces of apple, pumpkin, and my absolute favorite, cherry, pie in front of my face was no match for my willpower and I failed miserably.
I wasn't the least bit surprised to come home, stand on the scale and see I was up 3lb. Aagghh! Here I was just getting back into the groove and even down 2lb and now I'm past where I started. Not cool.
Even worse I'm now noticing it in my clothes. My pants are much tighter especially in my bottom and thighs which I cannot stand...and that muffin top...I'm not even going there. The sad thing is that even though I felt this awful all week, I still made bad choices every single day. It is so frustrating because I feel like I can't break this cycle that is spinning out of control.
I lost forty-some pounds.
I did it.
I can do it again.
I even kept 37 of it off for over two years.
I'm proud of that.
I know what I need to do.
Now I just have to do it!!
How was your Thanksgiving??
