So, you put up with one whine yesterday. Have time for another?
Having lost 40-some pounds, I did not want to gain any back. But having been hit by the same economy as most of you, I quit Weight Watchers last fall. It was just got too doggone expensive. Statistics say 95% of people who lose weight will gain it back within 5 years of losing it. I want to be in the 5%.
Well, over this winter, I watched as the scale inched on back up. By the spring equinox, I had gained back 7 pounds. Not too shabby, really, considering that I did NO exercise during the cold months and ate like I was running daily marathons. But I'm paying now.
I am back on a good exercise regimen. I'd like to be able to run in the Harvard Milk Days 10K. Bwahahahaha! I've never run ANY race. I'm not even talking about winning here; I'd be doing good to finish. But I am going to try. So I've been running, and eating right, and walking on the off days, doing yoga and core strengthening...all the good things I should be doing. I've also been taking care of a hobby farm, a garden, and a house. I should be getting fit and trim.
This week? I gained 3 pounds. Yes, I wanted to cry. (There's the whine!) But, instead, I ate properly, stepped up the exercise, and am looking to the future.
I pulled out of it pretty quickly. You're welcome.
