Got to Watch that Scale!

Monday, February 25, 2013

Well my Sparkfriends.. it has happened! Since Christmas I have gained back 8.2 pounds.. I post this blog to keep me accountable. I clearly said at some point that for me it was essential to get on that emoticon every AM. You guessed it! I haven't been doing it regularly. And while I've been exercising faithfully, it hasn't been enough to balance my consumption! emoticon Nice way of putting it, eh?

To be fair to me, I haven't been well since October and have been home on sick leave, so I have spent a good deal of time lying or sitting down. Still , I knew that I should be watching more carefully and it's just so hard to be at home with all the food around emoticon!!

How do people keep it off when they are at home all day for whatever reason? Any ideas?? I see retired friends out for lunches with lots of time to socialize ( which to me means eating).. but perhaps they are able to balance it all with increased activity?

All I know is it is far easier to keep weight off when you are at work, away from the kitchen, and involved in activities which divert you from eating!

How do all you folks at home keep the weight in check?

Lots of emoticon to my emoticon s

PS: Obviously I will be on line more than I have been, I have "work" to do!

    So sorry that I missed this and I'm sorry that you haven't been well. Funny thing, but I tend to eat less when I am home because it seems I need to around people to eat. Weird, isn't it.

    I think once you get back I to weighing yourself as you did before you will be fine. And, I know you eat pretty healthy and exercise.

    It will be soon be time to get out into your garden which will at least keep you from grazing.

    Staying home means you have time to plan better meals, do multiple short fitness workouts, and spark. Hang in there. You'll get back on track.
