Recent Weight Gains
For over a year and a half, I was successful at maintaining a low carb diet. However, in the last month or so, I have fallen off the wagon and I cannot seem to get back on. I could blame it on the fact that I have been dealing with some family drama and for comfort I have turned to junk food. However, that would just be side stepping the issue. The reality is that I lack discipline in my eating habits and to make matters worst, I have stopped working out. Oh sure, I get some exercise through the heavy breathing I do with Racquetball Guy, but that clearly is not enough. Therefore, I am gaining weight. Specifically, I have gained about 10 pounds since my August vacation to New Orleans. I am hoping that by talking about my weight gain here it will help me become more accountable because I do not want to go back to my heavier state. I cannot afford to go back. Therefore, here’s hoping I can recommit myself and at least start working out 3 times a week. Maybe that will help curb my appetite or at least get me recommitted to eating healthier again.
