Replacement pedometer showed up in the mail today and I now feel a rekindled sense of committment. I am starting to feel that same determination I felt on January 1 over again.
I think mindless eating is something that probably 90% of us weight loss bloggers have in common. I am convinced that only eating when I am actually hungry was the #1 thing that helped me lose so much weight betwen Jan-Apr. Since then, I have drifted back toward more "eating just because" and as a result I haven't lost any weight since April. I've even gained some back. #2 key to success was exercise. Not ridiculous amounts of it, but a very manageable committment to at least 15-30 minutes on the Wii Fit each day and a 10,000 steps a day. I've also gotten away from that. And #3 is the blog. I've pretty much been a no-show for the past few months and it feels good to be talking to my buds on here again. Just reading a few of your posts again has helped me refocus.
Wife just finished making a big pot o' great chili. Wish me the best in eating just one reasonable sized bowl! That is plenty enough to fill me up, but I will no doubt want more.
Good night y'all!
