What? Me...a slacker?

I totally am, when it comes to blogging and other things too. I've been overwhelmed with the craziness of my life. Catching up at work and home after my trip with the boobs, running with my kids here there and everywhere, football, football and more. Anyway, I am sorry that I haven't posted. I had a wonderful time in Chicago and promise to post some pictures. I just got pics uploaded on Facebook today, but I'm at work now and only have time for a quick post, so ...
I hope everyone is doing well. It was so nice to see old friends in Chicago and to meet new ones. It really is surreal when you meet someone for the first time but feel like you've known them forever! I will write more about that and all the fun things we did in Chicago.

But for now I'll just say, while I was in Chicago, my eating was great, I didn't gain any weight, I felt really good, we were active, we ate and drank but nothing out of control. I came home and felt like I wanted to eat everything in sight. I have not felt like exercising, I've been on the border of getting sick and have been using that as an excuse for not moving.

It's time for me to take an honest inventory of my life, time to reevaluate my eating and get back in gear. I've just been maintaining for the last 7 months....seriously? What has happened to my reserve. I don't want to stop here. Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy that I have been able to maintain all this time, because that is unheard of for me. And, perhaps I'm just taking a break here...maybe I'm just a lazy ass and don't care anymore. I don't know what the answer is. I don't know what's different now. I know I feel better, I feel more normal, but I'm a long way from being thin. I don't know what to make of my lack of commitment. I generally am a very committed person. I could use any advise you might have.

I will leave you with a pic of me an my roomies, Vickie and Jacquie. We had so much fun together. Love these girls and miss them!


Have a great day!
Big hugs!

Sounds like a lot of us want to move from maintaining to losing. WE can do it!!

Maintaining is GOOD. You're consolidating the progress so far, getting your body used to the new weight. When you're ready, it's a springboard for the next phase. I've been following your ups and downs Theresa, and you're a very successful weight loser because you haven't done it all in a hurry, and don't you forget it!!

you my dear are beautiful any way you slice you!!! You will pick up those bootstraps and get yourself to the gym!!! I know you can and want to! That will jump start the rest of the weight coming off!

I do miss you!

I wouldn't say we are slackers (I've been the same weight for a year). But the next twelve months will be ours. Maybe we should have a slackers challenge, although when I hear challenge I immediately start eating. Not good with setting a final goal. There are a bunch of us in the same boat so let's go! On your mark, get set... Whoops, I have to wait until mid November when I'm back from vacation. But go ahead a start without me. Are you at a good fill level--too little--too much? Go see the doc and ask for advice.

I missed you all so much. I've heard some stories from Linda and Camela and it sounded like it was a blast.

Ronnie said...

You can do anything you set your mind to, beautiful lady! :)

I've been maintaining for a long time, myself. I like to think that during the last 1000 diets I was on I would have gained. So there is a silver lining. Mwah!
