Hanging in there

 I haven't given up on my weight loss journey.  Even though my last post was tinged with a feeling of helplessness.  Giving up is honestly not an option for me. It sounds tempting but then I start to think about how I want my life to be. I think about what life I want to live.  And when I thought of those things, it made me realize how badly I want this.  It made me tighten the reigns and not go crazy with my eating.

We had a busy weekend.  We had a handful of errands and some visits that we had/wanted to make. We didn't even have enough time for a full hike.  We did make it down to the canal and we walked for about an hour.  But that was all.   Don't worry...we got a lot of steps in while doing our errands!!!

My eating....on Friday and Saturday was a bit higher.  My calories were between 1400-1600 each of those days.  But by Sunday I had pulled it around and my calories were quite a bit lower and down in the range that I typically like to be in (1200-1300 calories).    

My weight managed to hold steady over the weekend without going up.  So that made me happy!   

I'm NOT giving up.  Giving up is the ONLY way to fail!   Failure is NOT an option!  

And since this post is short, I will leave you with a picture of the infamous Mertz!

Mertz is adorable! I love cats. Your post made me think of a study I read about, that of course I can't remember who conducted or where I read it, but a study compared one group of constant dieters with a group that took a break here and there. The group that took a break now and then lost more weight long-term. So don't call it giving up, or being frustrated, or anything like that. Just call it taking a break! We all need one every now and then.

I am so with you. I want to give up, but that other part of me just can’t. So I continue. That is the reason I am trying this Fall Challenge. My biggest issue is food. I know 80% of weight loss is the food I eat. So that is where my focus is. Currently I am eating as little processed food as possible. Choosing fresh wholesome foods. No crazy fad diet for a temporary fix. A life style change.
