Awhile back I used to do weekly weight loss (or lack thereof) updates every Friday. I've decided to start doing that again, for at least the next 4 weeks, because I desperately need some accountablility, not that it's ever worked in the past but it still can't hurt. It's coming up on 2 years that I've been struggling with repeatedly losing and regaining the same 3 or 4 pounds over and over. And the one time I did lose more, 9 pounds last May, I managed to gain all that back and then some. I'm really tired of it.
So starting today, I commit to posting weekly for the next 4 weeks about my efforts. I'm not going to set an actual goal of losing x number of pounds, I just want to concentrate on breaking this cycle. One thing I'm trying to do is not necessarily eliminate, but cut way back on bread, potatoes, pasta, rice and sweets. Now that I'm getting older and entering into perimenopausal territory (I think, and I'm "only" 43, it's not like I'm pushing 50), carbs are wanting to stick around more easily than before, I'm noticing. So that is going to be my focus in the coming week. After our spaghetti dinner tonight :)
