For last week, I have cut down on portions, not eaten sweets and been upping the exercise. I know I need to do more exercise but have done more than usual recently. I decided to weigh myself on the Wii and it told me I had put on .2 of a kilo. How annoying! I am now getting angry with the weight to hopefully show it that I want it gone. There is a phrase from the film, “Groundhog Day”, that says, “Don’t drive angry“, well I am now “Getting angry with the weight”
Do you have this issue, you do more activity to then finally weigh yourself to find that you have not lost but gained. Just upsetting to say the least. As I am getting angry about the extra kilos or pounds, I am going to get even harder on it, it’s days are numbered. I am going to go hard core, I will get up earlier and do some jogging or some type of exercise to make it leave for good.
I am getting very sick and tired of not feeling like my old self. Currently I feel dumpy, huge, uncomfortable and more. I know that I don’t look dumpy and it is just how I feel, but I do feel uncomfortable. It is interesting that when you a little overweight you can feel that it does not feel right, well I can. Not sure what others have felt like.
Maybe I need to use shakes for lunch or breakfast and just have a low calorie meal at night? Do you do meal replacements? Do they work? My fear with them is that once you are off them the weight will come back. I don’t want that to happen. I was keen on maybe doing Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers to see if they are any good, but it is the money with the food and the extras that put me off. I know how to make a meal that is fine to eat if you are dieting, however it is hard doing it with a husband that wants dinners cooked and kids to cook for as well.
Before kids I was using Lite n’ Easy, this was brilliant, I lost 10kgs, and had so much more energy. The meals were good, prepared for you and you just had to heat them up. It was great for a busy person and allowed more time for you, as no extra shopping, cooking and more time for exercise and fun. However it is the cost that factors this choice out again and it is a pity.
So now, no excuses, the war has begun. Weight you have your notice. You can leave now or the next month or so is going to be hell for you and a slow painful death – You have been warned weight!
Are you in the same boat? Do you find that you are doing the right things to have more weight pop up on the scale? I am going to plod along and just get meaner to the weight and step up activity. Also will sit down and plan more low fat, yummy meals. Do you have sure fire way to get skinny and slinky? If so send in your comments.
