Getting Back on Track!

So I have confessed that I have had weight gain the past several months.  Well, back up to 197 is not a good feeling!! I had been maintaining for several months, and as my friend Beth pointed out, maintaining is difficult to do.  At least I haven’t been gaining this entire time.

Putting on the weight has been very easy to do.  Getting it back off (especially at 51 years of age) is hard.  I saw my weight loss doctor and nutritionist for my 18 month check up, and they suggested I do a reset.   The reset is titled “Getting Back on Track!”, and I began on Monday.  I am doing a liquid fast (juices, jello, no protein shakes or solid foods) for at least two to three days.  I didn’t want to start it before Thanksgiving or the Bestie weekend…so three weeks from Christmas I begin again.

I hadn’t been exercising either.  So Monday, got up (later than normal but got up), and walked on the treadmill for 20 minutes.  Not great, but it is a start – again.  David and I are signed up for the 5k that we did a year ago.  I had high hopes for cutting down my time, but now all I want to do is be able to finish again.

It is frustrating how easy it is to lose track of a habit that benefits me.  I love the effects the weight loss surgery has given me (a great tool), but it still takes effort and work.  Nothing is easy (apparently putting the weight on is!), but I know that I am not perfect and the baby steps have begun again.

Journey to healthy…again.

Blessings.
