Not the best result but good considering the week I had. I feel encouraged that I have been doing well- both with the exercise and the eating. I think, because of my weight, I should have lost more by now-- but I will take it like it is.
I can only do what I can do. And I shall continue to do it!!
Losing weight is hard. My personal opinion is that anyone who has never been over-weight doesn't understand how hard is to lose the extra weight.
And I don't mean the extra 3 pounds that a 120-pound women put on over Christmas holidays!
So when a skinny person, who has never been fat in her life, says, "Can't you just eat a little less," or "Go exercise," it really does make me want to scream!
They don't know the feelings of failure, the depression, the anger at yourself for letting this happen. They don't understand the feelings of discouragement when it doesn't work- even when you really try. They don't hear the call of the Twinkie.
I don't want to hear: "You should get a juicer" from a skinny friend who is just trying to help. Don't want to hear it. The one who yells, "exercise is fun" doesn't understand that isn't fun to a lot of people. "It's a shame- you have such a pretty face!"
And in the end, those skinny people are usually the ones who say, "Here. Eat. One piece won't hurt."
Any asinine 'helpful' comments from friends that anyone wants to share??
I won't be weighing in this week.
It doesn't take much to break the momentum. A bit of stress, an upset, something in your life that isn't right.
I am still exercising, which is good but the past week hasn't been as good food-wise.
This was my supper last night. So I know I am still doing well but we did order pizza on Sunday- which isn't good but I know that I didn't eat like a pig, which is what I used to do.
I made homemade granola bars this morning. I got the recipe from Food Doodles.
Now they go into the freezer to harden up.
Onward and upward. Or downward, really!
I got this recipe from A Pinch of Yum. I made it on Saturday. It turned out really great. Using cauliflower as a sauce with noodles. kind of like Fettuccine Alfredo. Yummy!!
