Weigh In Wednesday

Still at 213. 

My eating is all over the place. It is hard to be consistent when our schedule changes so much. I know. I know. Excuses. 

When J is not home (which is half the time) I don't cook supper. Cooking for one is never fun and Jack doesn't let me out of his sight. By the time he goes to bed at around 7 I don't care about actual food. I wanna grab some cookies or maybe a microwavable meal. My go to lately has been Cheez-its. Super healthy-I know. Typically I grab something on my way to bed. This is not healthy but I'm not sure how to change it. 

When J is home I cook and we usually eat between 5-6. This is a better time to eat supper. These meals aren't necessarily healthy but they are decent or at least considered a supper compared to a bowl of ice cream. 

Breakfast and lunch isn't really a problem. I eat a protein bar for breakfast and usually a sandwich, a few chips, and 2 cookies for lunch. Supper is my negative eating. 

Exercise. Oh the dreaded and loved topic of exercise. I love exercising once I do it but getting to those first steps is like the equivalent of climbing Mt. Anything. 

Every time in the past that I've lost weight exercise has been key. I can eat healthy all I want but if I don't exercise I don't drop a pound. I was kinda hoping that the two trips to the park would have at least dropped me down a pound. 

My before supper eating is not a good thing. My not exercising is not good. 

I gotta change if I want to lose some weight. Just not sure how.

Any suggestions?

  2. Girl, I'm in your club. Hell, I'm pretty sure I could be president of the "eat ok for breakfast and lunch, eat crap for dinner, and refuse to exercise at all" club. I've been living it my entire adult life. I've made a pact with my best friend that we'd walk 4 miles a week. It doesn't have to be consecutive, it just has to be 4 miles. And even at a slow pace, I can walk a mile in 15 minutes. So for me, it seems like a very doable goal. Maybe try something like that? Either way, best of luck!!

  3. This sounds silly, but watching Extreme Weightloss is a HUGE motivator for me. I figure if someone can lose 100+ lbs in a year, I can lose what little I need to. I know they exercise for hours a day and that's unrealistic for real life, but for some reason it still puts me in the right state of mind! Also, having a partner (your hubby, a friend, family member) to work out with or at least check in with to hold me accountable helps me!
