kmartdollie's Journal, 29 December 2012

I did pretty well with calories the last 4 days. Today I did not go to the gym because I was busy with errands. I did walk the dog, though. I just had an apple for a late night snack. My doctor told me that I might be less hungry and my metabolism boosted by eating 5 times a day instead of 3. It's pretty hard to spread out calories for 5 mini meals if you're only working with 1200. Tomorrow I am having a light breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and taco salad for dinner, and I have snacks I can schedule in between. I think it's a matter of me planning ahead 24 hours and sticking to the plan. I think I will go to the gym tomorrow and weigh myself again. I have got to get used to weighing myself more. I was weighing myself every day, and that fell by the wayside. I put a lot of pressure on myself and it was too much when the scale stopped moving. Then I was like weighing myself every week, but I need more than that. You can commit a lot of sins in a week before you notice it on the scale, and when you do, it's like BLAM. I endulged for 3 days at Christmas and I was 2 pounds heavier by the end of the week. I guess that's all it takes. Scary that I can gain weight so easily. I can gain 2 pounds in less than a week of bingeing, and it takes such tremendous effort to lose a pound in a week. I've got my work ahead of me, that's for sure. I just want to start losing again. I really miss that weekly sense of success that sustained weight loss gives me. It scares me to think of what my body would be like if I stopped exercising. I have been working out like 5 days a week, doing an hour of cardio each time, plus strength and toning. I have been running at least 10 miles a week. I have been doing all of that, but I've gained weight. It makes me wonder what I would have gained if I was not that active! I have to face facts - my 40 year old metabolism sucks. If I was working this hard in my 20's, I'd be doing great by now. I have to accept that even one day of overeating has dire consequences. I have to accept that I have to exercise and be physical and take care of my body from here on out, because if I stop, I will gain weight and since I'm older, it will be harder and harder for me to just move well and be fit and in shape.
