I had a great week!!!  I lost 5.4 lbs. but really it was .4 because I gained 5lbs last week.  This proves I really can do this if I stick to it and do all the right things!!  Here's to another great week this week.  Onward and upward!!!

Making great strides but not in weight loss

I am logging a lot of miles since I got my new pedometer but haven't done very well in the dieting category.  I just can't seem to get myself into any long term commitment lately.  I do real good for a couple of weeks,  lose a few pounds then a special event comes up with all the great event foods and it just gets the ball rolling in the wrong direction for me.  I backslide so easily.  I went to a 4th of July party last weekend then spent the end of the week on a camping trip.  I went to my WW meeting on Sunday and gained 5 lbs.  I got a lot of exercise... swimming, tennis, long walks, biking, but was so out of control with my eating. 
Once again this week I am all geared up to have a great week and good results on the scale come Sunday.  I am back on track and am writing and planning all my meals for the week.  I should have an easy time as there are no special events planned for a few weeks.  I have a wedding to go to on the 30th though.  I'm looking forward to it in one way because it is my nephew's wedding and a very happy memorable event but I'm not looking forward to all the food and the feeling of being out of control and backsliding again.  I guess I will just have to do a lot of contemplating on this situation and come up with a plan of action.  I have got to get into the right mind set to deal with this obsession I have with food.  I just love the taste of food and the joy it brings when I'm eating something that tantalizes my tastes buds.  Why does life have to be so complicated???
