Surprises, set-backs, and Life!
Have you ever noticed that no matter how carefully you script and plan your life, someone ELSE seems to be in charge? Hmm. I will make the long story short;
Plan: Go to England, exercise a lot, eat little, come home, jump in with both feet.
Reality: Go to Idaho (mom sick), fix comfort food for her, eat moderately, exercise moderately, come home to REAL life (kids in school, sickness, household repairs, job issues).
Yes, it's been challenging. And yet I've managed to keep my calories at or under 1200 since returning home. But only this week have I gotten back to full-blown exercise. My cupboard is stocked, I'm not hungry and it's all going well. Cross your fingers!
Current Weight: 232.4 Weight Last Weigh In: 232.8 Weight loss since last week: 4/10ths of a pound
