Might As Well

Years ago, when my son was 17, I was trying to decide if I should go back to college. He said, "Mom, the time is gonna pass whether you go back or not. So, you might as well go."

That also applies to trying to get healthy and lose weight. The time is gonna pass whether we do this or not. So we might as well.

Smart kid.

Back on Track

So, this week I have gotten back on track.  I started eating more whole grains, a vegetable and a fruit at every meal.  Right out of the gate.  If your body is not used to this type of food, I don't recommend going gung ho like this.  Take it slow.  Believe me.

Slipping Back Into Old Habits

Now that I'm living alone again, I have begun slipping back into old habits.  Eating poorly, more fast food, watching TV in the evenings.  I noticed earlier in the week, my pants were feeling tight around the waist.  I have not weighed in a while and did this morning.  I have gained 6 pounds.  I have been doing this diet/weight loss thing my entire adult life.  I am so very, viry tired of this whole thing.
