In the past 2 weeks I have not lost weight, in fact I have gained 2 pounds. I did not want to post this information ... as if hiding it (from myself) would make it not true.
But committment is a process, we have to re commit ourselves every day. I hereby recommit myself to losing weight. Sure it is great that I lost 10 lbs, but when you have a lot to lose the first 10 are super easy. How often have I lost 10 lbs, just to regain it PLUS 10 more. Well, let's see. Often enough to get from 135 to 215.
Now is not the time to give up. Tracking and controlling what I eat is actually getting easier. I believe I can do this.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
