Weigh-in for April 26: More of the same

Current weight: 286.5
Difference from last entry: +2
Difference from 2008 starting weight (290.5): -4

So I still don’t have a job yet. and the stress is getting to me, just a little bit. And, as is the norm for me, it shows most in my weight. I have reverted back to some of my old habits – maybe most of them. I have only worked in exercise once or twice this week. I am snacking continually. And I am having more sweets – many more sweets – than I should allow myself. And I’ve been drinking a lot of soda and not drinking much water. All very, very bad habits.

I decided that my life is simply too stressful right now to try to lose weight. Instead, I am going to try and keep my weight steady. I’ll slip into a maintenance mode right now, aiming to keep from gaining. I am going to work on finding some way to deal with stress other than eating. And I am going to try to get some more exercise in this week.

And start with baby steps. 🙂

  1. How I avoid the food traps

    1. I don’t buy them snacks
    2. “Snacks” I do buy include apples, kiwi, juice, cranberries, spinach.
    3. If we do buy snacks, we make sure friends and family help us eat it when they come over to play with our kids.
    Scheduling is VERY important.

    I would say just stop buying the junk.
    Soda is awful for your health, forget the weight gain.

  2. The buying snacks is where I am setting myself up for failure, of course. I’ve been buying too many, and I know I shouldn’t. It’s stress, pure stress. But I just landed a new job, so hopefully all of that stress is about to evaporate.
