Bye


It's been a rough month, eating-wise, with all of the carby comfort foods including breads, pastas, and sweets. It's a hard habit to break once you get into it, just like lower carb eating is a hard habit to break when you've been at it awhile.

I got on the scale on March 1 and weighed in at 197 pounds. That's a 3 pound gain for February and a continuance of the path towards hitting 200 again. I did hit 199 pounds briefly last month, and I don't want to see that again! I think a change of scenery is just what I need to break these bad eating habits and get back to the business of weight loss. I'm heading south on vacation... further south than I've been in 45 years: Florida! Packing up my swimsuit and bringing along my determination to be healthy (which I had to pull put of the closet and dust off a bit) and when I get back in a couple of weeks, I'll be feeling and looking much better. See ya later!

Have a great vacation. Sometimes a change in scenery is a enough to change our paths! Florida sounds great. I live in this polar vortex & I need Spring now!

I'm soooo jealous! It's below zero in Wisconsin today. What I wouldn't give to stick my toes in some warm sand and soak up some rays! Have an awesome trip!

I hope you get to take some pictures while you're in FL, for Instagram perhaps--I'm envious of your better weather down there. Have fun.

Hi Lyn, Just checking in on you. I too am struggling. My weight shot up from a fairly consistent 165 to 183. It felt like overnight, but it took about three months. I wonder if we'll ever figure this out. I'm trying to track my food, but my heart just isn't in it. I have no advice for you, but wanted you to know I get it. As usual, we're on the same old path. If you figure it out, please let me know. :)
Your friend, Diana

It's been a long time since I checked in on your blog, and weirdly I am at almost the identical place you are! Same amount of gains and such, and creeping toward that 200 mark I said I'd never go back to! ACK! I'm working on turning it around too. As much as it stinks you're in the same place I am, here's a wave from someone in the same position!

I hope you're being restored by FL sun! I may be back on blogger...may be...we'll see. I've closed my FB page, so I plan on checking in on Blogger, at least.
