I've been avoiding it for a long time, but yesterday I decided to just get up this morning and weigh. I guess I just didn't want to know, was afraid if there was a gain I'd feel worse (I have been feeling bad enough without adding one more thing) and honestly have had very little motivation to *do* anything about my weight anyway... so what's the point of weighing? Well as I said yesterday, the point is my health, and I need to get refocused on *that* (and weight is, at least in obesity, connected to what's going on with my health).
So here we go. Scale this morning said 232 pounds. That's up 6 pounds since Sept 1. Last time I weighed was on September 5 at 229 pounds. Obviously being off AIP means not only eating more volume but also eating more of the foods that create inflammation, hunger, cravings, and health issues. Completely stopping the exercise was not the best idea either.
Anyway I'm also back to writing down what I eat in my notebook (not measuring, not counting calories or carbs, just writing the foods but not amounts) because that is what worked for me before. Also easing back into activity with some walks and hopefully some swimming this week.
That's all for now; will update more when there is more to say.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
