Back in the Saddle Again

Okay, I know I’ve been about as diligent in writing this blog as I have been with the whole dieting thing…and for that I apologize. I won’t go into a bunch of excuses here…because let’s be honest, nobody really cares (including me). But the time has come. I’ve taken the entire summer off to gorge on bbq, chips and dip, potato salad, Summer Shandy…..and now my friends, summer is coming to an end. And alas, so must my binging on unhealthy foods.

Last Spring when I was relaying everything I ate to you, I was the most successful. So I’m going to start again. I will try to make it as quick and painless as possible. I weighed in this morning at 164.4 lbs. I believe my lowest weight (back about 4 months ago) was 159. So now I have 5 lbs. to lose to get back to where I was...which, let’s face it - it’s never fun having to re-lose weight you’ve already taken off once. I am currently wearing a size 10 and although I’m happy with it and have bought some new pants (finally), it’s not my ultimate goal (which is still to reach 130 by my 40th birthday next May).

My plan is to cut back to 1,200 calories per day again (ah, joy), to record it on my Spark People website and lastly, to report back to all of you here. I also plan to start walking on the treadmill again at least 5 days a week (which will kill two birds with one stone because my hubby will finally quit nagging at me for not using it when I HAD to have it last Spring). Wish me luck!
