First of all, I'd like to let you all know that there's some disappointment with this blog entry. For one, I forgot to get Mike to snap a picture of me, so I'll have to wait until next week to post one. Another is that, not only have I not lost weight, but I have gained back some weight yet again. I gained back two pounds, making it 240. And this very reason is why I always end up quitting. I get to a plateau or I start yo-yoing and I figure it's not worth it, so I stop. I'm not making excuses for myself, I know that it's my own fault. I can't blame this on mom's good food! I've kept to my not-eating-after-eight rule, but I've gradually started back to nibbling here and there and starting to screw up my portions again. I also haven't been pushing myself as much at the gym. I think I've told you that I've started the elliptical. It's great, because it's burning more calories, but because of that, I figure I don't need to stay the full hour I use to. I'm slowly going back to my old ways.
But I like what I've been doing. I've never lost so much weight. And they say that if you diet/exercise for over three or four weeks, you'll be more likely to stick with it. Well, I'm twice that time frame, and I'm not ready to quit yet. I WILL lose the weight I've gained this past week and more by next week. I know it!
