Sandy701's Journal, 25 September 2013

Just an average day....same ol', same ol. Walked my 3.1 miles; Lab along for 2.1 miles and Collie on the full route. Slightly cooler, but still humid.

I'm beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed by the impending October 1. I mean, that's really the beginning of all the holidays and festivities that make the last 3 months of the year just F-L-Y by!!

I had hoped to be back at my goal weight by 10/1 and it's not gonna happen. :( I seem to have lost my will to do what I must to make it happen and just "hoping" to be at goal does not work. And now, here come the hardest months of the year to lose weight. Can one lose in these 3 months? Absolutely. No doubt about it. It's just more difficult and it seems like it's already been harder than I would have ever expected. So where do I go from here? Mulling that over and over in my brain.

Last night's catered dinner out was good, but not low-carb. Not horribly bad, but....saw the expected negative results on the scale this morning. Can I just not eat anything any more????

Well, so much for this little pity party of mine. Gaining any sizeable weight back is NOT an option. Today, I donated another small load of too-big clothing to the thrift store - LOL!

We'll join you for a pity party anytime. Some things just aren't fair - period. If it helps, I'll be struggling right along beside you during this Holiday Season. Mine starts early with DH's birthday October 7th - and it ends, . . . well it just never seems to end does it?

Now Sandy...your last statement says it all...you had to donate clothes that are tooooooo big for you...I do agree the next 3 months are the hardest to lose...with all the activities pushed at us..all the eating with friends and family...We all struggle and that's the truth...Hugs...:O)

No, Buffy, it just seems to never end. Fortunately, most days are better than the pity party ones, so we just have to wait for one of the better days to roll around. At least we now know what we're in for, so perhaps it allows us to plan better????? One can hope!

Bren, that donation of clothing is what kept me going yesterday! I tried on a shirt or two and was again amazed at how overwhelming it was on me now. Was I really that big? I guess so. Some days, we just have to take a deep breath and realize what's been accomplished and not get so caught up in the minutia of the day. Smiles and hugs to you....:)
