Weight Loss Wednesday - Backtracking


It has been about a month since I last posted a Weight Loss Wednesday post. During that time, I lost 2 pounds . . . and then gained 3 back while at the beach. :(


I have never been able to understand why it is such a long, arduous process to lose weight -- and yet the pounds jump back on seemingly overnight. :( It seems I am always taking one step forward, and two steps back.

But, I refuse to be discouraged or immobilized by this temporary setback. I am determined to get back on track and continue my weight loss journey. Care to join me??

I don't understand it either. It's just not fair that you can gain so easily while being so hard to loose. I backtracked too...a really long way. I am now the heaviest I've ever been while not pregnant and I'm so upset at myself. I am taking a stand today to get back on the right track and get a hold of this weight thing once and for all. I know I need the Lords help, or it will just be one of the many failed stands I've taken over the years. You did better than me though...I gained 6lbs on vacation. Boo hoo.

Sorry about the biscuits and the pasta. lol I will start posting next week. John is t-tapping with me and he is so consistent and I am glad he drags me along. We also set some goals for 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 6 months and 1 yr. I have also started back on my green shakes and lemon water---more for allergies than weight loss, but it helps both. On Monday, someone told me about a book called Ultra-Metabolism. It is about how stress adds to your weight gain despite diet and exercise. I want to check it out.

Elizabeth, I hear you! I can't understand how I can seemingly put weight on overnight (even while being 'good') and yet struggle for months to lose the tiniest amount. I hate being overweight but I'm beginning to think it would be easier to accept my body for what it is now than to constantly try making it into something it's no longer designed to be. After all, we've both had kids and perhaps we should be a little easier on ourselves. Blessings, Jules

You could always try my approach: I have no battery in my scale right now, so I don't know how much I have gained! :)

Thanks for posting these... It is SO hard to lose weight but you have been an encouragement. :)

maybe I broke a blog rule? I did get the ww wed pics off your website because they were so cute. I also googled ww wed and found some more blogs that do it. I hope I didn't break any blog rules.
