State of the Weight Wednesday

I have nothing new to report.  I am still holding steady at officially 11 pounds lost, so while I’m thankful that I haven’t gained, I’m blah about not losing anything.

It’s my own fault, though.  I have been slacking on exercise and telling myself that I’ll just make it up tomorrow.  That doesn’t work for me.  I have to exercise every day.  And not just exercise.  I have to work up a really good sweat for a long time for it to be effective.  I just don’t lose weight easily.  It’s not something I can just set my mind to do and watch the weight fall off.  I’ve always been this way, and I guess I’ll be this way for the rest of my life.

The good news is that my next group weight loss challenge starts tomorrow.  I did pretty well in the last one, but I am hoping to really kick it up this time.  I seem to have gotten a better handle on my eating and figuring out ways to snack healthy and make better choices in restaurants.  I credit that for maintaining over the past week when I haven’t been exercising as I should.  I’m also doing a 30-day ab challenge starting on July 1.  I did the first part of the first circuit Tuesday evening just to see if I could still do it {leg lifts}, and my ab muscles are still sore.  So we’ll see how I fare on that.

All in all, I just have to keep plugging away.  My goals for the near future are to really pay attention and follow this WLC as closely as I can, and to make it through the 30-day ab challenge.  I have to be more disciplined if I ever want to succeed at this.
