Back on track!
Phew! well, slow and shaky and a bit uncertain, but I seem to be back on track. I managed to lose 1lb last week and am feeling much more positive. I'm also back to doing a little light running. Things are getting back to normal and I'm feeling a bit more in control.
What got me through was the great support from other folk and a big 'thank you' to Golden, Cookie2012, Grannysasa and Bluegirl26 for giving me tips and encouragement. I have my fat photo in a prominent place and I did not give up - thank you guys.
Sometimes you just have to wait for things to pass. I was certainly swamped with lots of stuff going on and the thought of tackling my weight just seemed a step too far. I just felt overwhelmed by it all. Thanks for the cheering from the sidelines; I didn't cave in and I went for damage limitation until the storm clouds passed. I stuck with my commitment to lose weight and things changed as they always do.
I don't think losing these few pounds is going to be quite as easy this time. Odd, you'd think 4 stone weight loss was a bit more of a challenge than a few pounds, but it isn't. Of course I've not got the time and energy for another major project at the moment with all that's going on. I'm expecting a few more ups, downs and plateaus, but at least I can keep plodding away.
So thank you for all your help and support. Here's to taking the scenic route on weight loss!
Hope your diets are going well, thanks for all the support and remember - every little bit helps! ;-)
