I Must Get about 5 kilo, 10 lbs Off Again!


I don't look like this anymore...
As long-time readers and old friends may remember, close to ten years ago I managed to lose about fifteen 15 kilo, thirty 30 pounds or so. And most stayed off really well. Well, until the past year or so, when a few began to sneak back.

Many of you may know the scene. A pound or two can be tolerated and not really noticed by others. Clothing still fits, and some old friends still picture us as obese, so when confronted with a slimmer than obsess us, they tell us that we've lost even more weight. Although we know it's not so...

And then the 2-3 pounds morph into 4-5 and then eight, nine or even ten, and suddenly the nice new, smaller-size clothes don't fit so well anymore.

Yes, it's time to stop eating "almost like a normal person." I must "rediscover" my self-control full-time. "Most of the time" is not enough, because the "few things extra" keep adding weight. And I must stay away from temptation... And I must try to exercise more.

And like any "addict," I have to admit that I have a problem. Yes, that's why I'm blogging it. Sigh...

It's so hard. Let's cheer each other on.

Yup. It is hard! I find I have selective memory unless I write down every thing I eat, I just don't know who ate the stuff from the cupboard!

40 years ago, after one of my kids was born, I dieted like that. I called it the "honesty diet," because I weighed and wrote down everything. I got really thin. But I just can't start all that weighing again. I need to find a way to get the weight off and live with the restrictions.
