Up 4 Weeks in a Row

Yep, you read that right. I have gained for 4 weeks in a row! Holy cow!  Yep, life has been nutso lately!  I am finding myself in a place in my life that I never thought I would be in - a single mom to my 3 year old daughter.  It has been a rough year and now that it is 1/2 way over, with all that I am going through, I feel like I am losing my grip on the weight loss that I have been doing so well with.  I have worked so hard to lose this weight and it is slowly creeping back on.  I hate the fact that I am letting it happen.  It makes me so angry knowing that I am not following along program to a "t"; I have not been eating crazy, but have not been tracking and when I don't track I tend to eat a bit more then I should.  Those extra little bits of food are adding up and have caused me to gain 4 weeks in a row - all small gains mind you, but gains none the less!

Today is the first day I can say that I have honestly tracked EVERY THING I have eaten.  It feels great to have done that! Now if I can keep doing that I will do just GREAT!  I also need to get back to exercising regularly!  Becoming a single mom, I have had to take on a second job, so exercise has gone by the way side.  In just over a week I will be back down to one job so I will be able to focus more of my effort back to exercising and getting off the last 10lbs!


  1. Sometimes life gets in the way of even the best made plans - these gains are really small setbacks in the long run. What's most important is that you know what to do to get back on track, and once things in your life start to stabilize, you've got the motivation to push forward. ♥ Thinking of you in this tough time.

  2. Oh honey bless your heart you are so strong to be doing all that HUG gains suck but dont have to be perminent just keep fightin forward!

  3. sorry about that hon and i wish you the best on the new direction your journey has taken you but you can do this. you are an incredible strong woman and it may mean reworking/tweaking some things but you will do it! after all you have the BEST motivation ever, you're a mom and your daughter deserves to have you around for the next 80 years! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
