Still Going to Take a Little Break, BUT... Here's What I'm Eating!

I don't want to gain back more weight than I already have!

Miss Verity Vaudeville left a comment yesterday, asking if it was wise to distance myself... and she is right! The 2 weeks I was away I fell completely off track and am having so much trouble getting back on! I have gained about 10 pounds since before that 2 weeks... I don't want to gain another 10! If I stay completely away, I might just do that!

I need a little break, a break from writing all the depressing things that are my life right now. A break from thinking about it any more than I have to! BUT I don't want this to be a break that lets me eat everything in sight. And I'm afraid if I don't feel accountable to anyone, I will!

Thank you all for your support, and understanding my need for a little break... and I'm going to be taking that break, while not completely forgetting about my weight loss journey.

So I've made a decision.
I'm going to still report what I eat everyday, and any exercise I may do. I'm going to just do it on this post, in case anyone is interested, but mostly just so I know I have to... then I will be more mindful of what I'm eating and hopefully it will help me not go completely off track again! Today I know I ate more than I would have if I was thinking that I have to come share it!!! If I had thought about how I have to come share all of it, I probably would have eaten less! So I won't be making a separate post for everyday, just adding it all here until I get back to a more normal blogging schedule.

I think this will help me. I am just feeling so overwhelmed lately, and sadly the blog is adding to that... but at the same time I know how important it is and how much it's helped me. This way I can catch up with everyone else's, and still hold myself accountable without feeling the urge to write a 10 page post about all my complaining and yucky feelings :) Even though I know I would get nothing but support from you all :) I just really don't want to dwell on any of it anymore than I have to I guess...
I hope this makes sense!

So I will be here in the mornings when I'm updating my Weight Loss Tracker, with what I ate the day before.
And also any treadmill I get in.
Thanks again everyone. I know this will pass, and I will feel better and be back to myself. I'll see you then!

  1. When I saw your name on my blog comments,
    I was actually more excited than anything!
    I didn't want you to take a little "break."
    Too often that is a euphemism for failure.

  2. You are right, and that's what I realized. If I take a full "break" I will continue to fail...
    After thinking about it... I figure this is the best thing for me right now :) Writing less on my blog, but still being accountable... and having more time for the blogs I love to read- yours always makes me smile!
    I'm thinking having time to able to read my blog roll daily will improve my mood already! :)
    Thanks Anne!

  3. Awwww...weight watching sucks, and it is all consuming.
    I think you are making the right decision to give yourself a break, and lay off of the things that cause you to feel overwhelmed.

  4. Hugs...I was excited to see your comment this morning...hope that today is a great day for you....

  5. We definitely support you no matter what. I have been battling weight issues for 24 years. Up and down. It sucks so having a support team helps!!

  6. Thank you all so much! :)
    I am feeling much better, and not so overwhelmed with everything :) I haven't been doing so well with eating, but I'll write it anyway lol. Now that the Holiday is over, I feel like I can concentrate more on getting back on track.
    Thank you for you support!
