Not yet, but one day…
The decision itself wasn’t so difficult, the sticking with the decision once it was made has proven to be difficult. I finally decided, about a month and a half ago, to get serious about losing weight. It has been hard sticking to the diet, but not as hard as it has been in the past when I was half-hearted about it. This time I’m determined to get control of my eating and get some more exercise. I’m doing pretty well about sticking to the diet, but the exercising is a little harder. I’m still determined.
I’ve lost another pound this week, but I feel like I should be losing faster. If only I could drive myself out to take a walk, I think it would be better, but I’m having a really hard time with the exercise part of this stuff. Lack of will, I suppose. I don’t think I have any real temptations coming up this week. It’s pretty quiet with few times that I have to make decisions about what to eat.
I DID have chicken today instead of the steak I so badly wanted, but Big Al got a big bowl of chili con queso and eating that cheese was as bad as stuffing tablespoons full of butter in my mouth. I’m on my way to take a short walk and see if I can mitigate the damage I’ve already done.
I quit smoking, cold turkey from 2 packs a day to nothing, over 30 years ago. That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I figure if I can do that, I can lose some of this weight that is dragging me down.
