I have completely discontinued the fluid pill and my weight, not suprisingly, is up. That sucks and I don't like it one bit but I know it is not only because of stopping the fluid pill. We were on the road a lot last week and I ate several things that were not good for me. So much so that I did not even record what I ate. I could have just put 5,000+ calories and been done with it!
I am back to keeping up with what I eat today. My trainer said that all this exercise and working out is for nothing if we don't take our diet seriously. He is so right. I have been running, biking, walking, treadmill, eliptical etc since 2009 but am at the same weight, give or take a pound or two! I can exercise all I want but if I still eat too many calories, the weight is NOT coming off. I know all the great and wonderful things that WORK when I am trying to lose weight, but more times that not, I want what I want, when I want it and my diet and hard work goes right out the window.
I don't know what it will take to stop this insanity. I have hardly any consequences from my overeating other than the fact that I don't like the way I look. But today I have been having some stomach upset and I know it is from all the fast food that I ate over the weekend. Of course when that goes away I will forget it even happened and go right back to what I know best!
Changing habits that have been with me for over 40 years is damn hard but not impossible. I will continue to try to do better. I will NEVER give up on this journey to be a healthy person!!
