Weight Loss Wednesday: When it rains…

It’s a rainy day here in Michigan today. The rain actually doesn’t bother me too much because I’m working… but I know some friends that are camping at various locations in the area and this kind of weather isn’t fun for that. It just puts a damper on things. Not only that, but it really does make everything damp at times. 🙂

I’m kind of going through the “rainy” season in my weight loss journey still. I try to get back “on track” as best I can, but for some reason I can’t get back into that (for lack of a better term) honeymoon phase where it seems so easy to track… so easy to stay on course… so easy to plan meals.

It just not easy.

I think that’s how it goes in the weight loss journey at times… which isn’t good for me at the moment. I have about 6 weeks until I am in my brother’s wedding, and I can’t be sure that the dress fits at the moment. It fit PERFECT a few weeks ago, but I haven’t exactly been eating the way I should have been since then… and I’m thinking I may have gained a pound or two since then.

Not good.

As we go through these times in life… times where our journey seems to be difficult… we rely on each other for help. I’m not sure what kind of help I need at the moment. I’d like to say being accountable to someone would be good – but I don’t know if that will work. I don’t know if anything would work the has worked in the past. I’m doing personal training each week so far (on Thursdays) but have yet to get into a routine that gets me into the gym on a regular basis.

I guess I’m just kind of in a down mood. A “damp” mood if you will.

So I’m just kind of trying to go day by day. Trying to make it though the day relatively near where my now-24 point allowance threshold stands. I went to the grocery store and bought some good things, but have yet to make anything that is substantive or healthy. Maybe I’ll do that tonight. 🙂

Do you have suggestions or ideas to get back on track? A way that may have worked for you that helped you become “energized” to get back into a weight loss plan?

I’ll keep you updated as to how things go each week. And hopefully by this time next week, I’ll have some good news to report. Or at least a step in the right direction.
