My weight is down today, lost some of the bloat from the holidays by sticking to meat and veggies since New Years Eve. It's such a simple equation.
I finally did some stuff to the house today.. Took down old decorations, organized stuff for an eventual yard sale. Next step is tackling the FIFTEEN tupperwares of Christmas decorations, blehhhhh. This stuff is too emotional. But everyone keeps telling me that's just life. I think I had things pretty easy up till now. I'm repaying karma for all those nice times.
So, losing the physical weight if depression and working in losing the emotional weight. That last one will be harder, but I'm chipping away at it.
Reading blogs is pretty intense this time of year... A lot of people ate admitting their yearly gains and taking different paths with dealing with it.
I'm grateful I'm starting this year lighter than how I started it last year. My goal is to be a FEW lbs lighter this time next year... I'm around 125-127 right now. 120-122 would be great... It's not a tough goal, but it will require work. When I take a leisurely attitude towards health and fitness, my weight creeps up to 130.
And I won't buy into that bullshit that my body is "comfortable" at 130. No. It's just easier to be that weight because I can eat more food and be less active... That's only laziness.
Ate eggs, veggies, turkey bacon, ground chicken, more veggies and almonds today. I will round the night off with sweet potato soup. Simple, simple, simple.
The simplicity of the equation really has become apparent to me in 2012. There is no reason for obese people to gain ten or more lbs... Comfort shouldn't be a goal. Life is not comfortable... It is messy and crazy and tough.
I know I won't be comfortable this year: unemployed, a house to completely do over, a crazy dog to manage, a wedding to plan........ But if this isn't about being comfortable, I am going to make it about doing it right.
