WLW ~ I'm Still Here

I haven't posted in a while, but I really am still here and trying to lose weight!  I'm always happy when I can join in for Weight Loss Wednesdays with my sweet friend Alicia.  I'll give you quick updates for the past few weeks.

4 weeks ago ~ After my feasting during my birthday week, I gained 1 lb - no surprise!  I didn't exercise much that week either.

3 weeks ago ~ More eating unfortunately and still not much exercise and guess what - gained 1 more lb.  Ugh!

2 weeks ago ~ Even though my Dad visited and we ate out a lot, we were fairly active and I maintained - no gain, no loss.  Better than gaining!

1 week ago ~ Didn't track my eating and only got in a couple of Zumba classes.  I maintained again - no gain, no loss.

This week ~  I really didn't do anything different and could only make it to 1 Zumba class.  I did skip dessert a couple of times and snacked less in the evenings.  Surprisingly I lost .5 lb!  Well it's something in the right direction anyway.

Obviously I'm not working very hard at this and I need to get back on track.  I need more exercise and I need to do something about food.  I can't seem to get motivated.  I'm thinking about what I want to do over these next few days to get back on track.  I definitely need to drink more water and stop snacking in the evenings.

I'm not giving up though - I keep trying!  How are you doing with your weight loss and exercise goals?

I love that Alicia reminded me that we can do all things through Christ.  Stop by her place and get some encouragement - it's good to have the support of friends through this struggle!

Have a healthy day!
