Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

Growing Older: An Uphill Battle of Losing Weight

I didn’t report last week but here I am. Sometime last week I hopped on the scale and I had lost 2 more pounds. I was ecstatic! That is a total of 9 pounds. I should’ve blogged  in the moment but did not. I went to the gym 4 times last week. That must be my world record and I felt good with all the exercise. 

However, I also went out a lot too toward the end of the week.

I am writing an article (topic TBA) and went out to sample the goods. Since the article is not published yet, I cannot divulge but nothing was low glycemic. Still I ate  and drank minimally.

The following night I went out yet again, this time as the guest of a major local Tucson resort and ate and drank more. I really ate and drank too much but enjoyed every morsel. I will review that restaurant soon.

On Saturday (yesterday) I was gone all day volunteering and really didn’t do eating damage until I came home and was starving. If I had eaten a low glycemic snack in the car on the way home, I wouldn’t have been starving when I walked in the door. Better planning!

Today, I’m back at eating better and even dragged myself to the gym during a very bad rain storm. I was rewarded as the gym was practically empty. Let’s just say that I mostly walked uphill for 2+ miles. I was tired and didn’t push myself further.

I know the key is more exercise.

I hope to be better this week both with eating and exercise.

  1. Love your updates on your weight loss!

    You have inspired me (along with “The Biggest Loser” TV show — which I LOVE). I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, but over the last few years, 15 pounds have come home to roost. I thought they were here to stay and had almost given up hope.

    It has been 4 weeks now and I have lost 6 pounds. I am working hard to achieve these results and am happy that it is going in the right direction.

    What change did I implement that made the difference? Eating less (18 points for you WW folks out there) and writing it down.
