Bigger than I want to be!

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

I'm having a difficult time right now. My weight is slowly creeping up and I don't feel like I am doing anything different. I try my best not to over eat and make good choices. By no means am I perfect (who is?!) but I really do try.

I have been walking most days at lunch; 20-30 minutes. Also, doing other exercises from a health challenge that I am participating in at work.

I did no dessert, candy, ice cream or sweets for Lent. My birthday was this past Saturday and my kids made brownies and chocolate ooey gooey butter cake. We also BBQ'd steaks, made oven-roasted potatoes, baked macaroni and cheese, green beans and rolls. I didn't eat but a bite of each dessert quite awhile after our meal because I was so full. Monday, I found myself nibbling a treat as I walked by. I had to freeze the leftovers because it was just too sweet and made my stomach hurt. I'm working form home now and really trying not to over-indulge as so many have said they are doing while being stuck at home.

Maybe it's my age, my genes or just the way life is; I'm not quitting...just venting! Good luck to everyone out there struggling like me. We will get through this!

    Well, I can certainly identify with your blog dear one! I feel SO big and I have been pretty sedentary sitting at my sewing machine making Corona masks.....other than the exercise I put in for my Teddy Bear team.

    It's downright depressing and I know the extra weight hurts my health. Everyone is so bored at home it's only natural to eat more than usual but it is something I'm very aware of so I've been trying hard to curtail the trips to the refrigerator.

    I have no motivation at the moment but like you I'll never give up...we just can't give up on ourselves..we need to keep pushing.

    Sorry you've hit a frustrating point in your fitness goals. I have had to modify mine a few years ago due to my age. You have done so much good for yourself already. Blessings on the rest of your journey.

    It is a fact that the older we get the harder it is to lose. I have really given up on losing weight and am concentrating on staying healthy with the extra pounds, as I know there is so many more obstacle so I just try to get in the exercise.

    I've been on my weight loss journey 5yrs and yes I put on weight for what seems like no reason. My doc told it's normal. Stay focused 💪🙌 cause you will get there. I lose weight but very slowly and that's okay 😊 Hugs

    This is the best place to vent your frustration because many of us can totally relate. This shelter in place is really weighing on my last nerve. I know how you feel because my weight has also slowly increased. So glad I have my Spark Buddies ❤️
