Diet and exercise

After nearly a month of dieting and exercising, I am down only 4.3 pounds. I had been hoping for a bigger loss but I’ll take what I can get. A loss is a loss, right?

Still, at the same time, it is frustrating to have worked so hard and not taken off any more than that. 😔

I know that age has a lot to do with it. I know that the older you get the more your metabolism slows down. Seems to me that mine may have crawled off somewhere and died. 😂

My goal remains the same though. I want to have lost, HOPE to lose, at least 40 pounds by September.

Carrie gave me a copy of her diet. I think, I may print it out. All it is are sheets that tell you what you can eat on certain days. She said that, along with an hour of daily exercise, helped her to lose weight. It’s worth a shot, right?

Weight loss is such a struggle for me anymore. It is also something that I NEVER dreamed that I’d have a problem with. I was also thin. It just seems like once I started putting it on, I couldn’t stop.

I’m even losing weight slower, this time, than I did the last. Last time, in three months, I’d lost 23.8 pounds. It doesn’t look like I’m going to lose that much that fast this go round.

No matter how frustrating this gets, I am going to have to make myself stick to it, if I ever hope to drop any kind of significant amount.

For now, my will power is strong. Wish me luck.
