Notice My Ticker?

Well, as much as I hate to admit it, I have gained a few pounds. :(
We (and husband and I) managed to get all the way through the summer
without a weight gain. ***We had started watching our diets more closely
and walking together daily the summer before...so we had managed to lose
some weight and keep it off for a whole year. But, this fall and into the early
part of the new year has been tough. It's been really cold here~which meant
many mornings it was simply too cold to walk outside. At first, I was good
about the treadmill but in all honesty, I don't enjoy that as much, so soon that
kind of played out too. And the more I put it off, the more I dreaded it and got
out of the habit, I guess. I began to notice some of my clothes getting a bit
snug, but I've been procrastinating about ACTUALLY get on the scale.
But, I finally did, and I don't know whether I am glad or mad. Needless, to
say, I gotta get back to paying attention to my daily calorie intake and back
to consistent exercise (and if it's too cold--then it's on the treadmill or
treadclimber)  So, this post is just for me...and as a way of helping me get
back to better eating. I have to REALLY watch it as far as food goes.
Some people can just cut back on soda and that makes a huge difference for
them. But, I don't drink soda (very little) as in probably less than one per month.
I drink water...all day long...except for my two cups of coffee in the morning.
I rarely eat dessert, I don't really crave sweets, never have. And I do eat
very healthy...lots of fruits and veggies, and very little fried foods. So, it's just
a matter of keeping the calories down to 1200 and exercising daily.I want
to use the little ticker on my sidebar to help me...to be encouraged to see
the numbers go down. Not fun, but I do want to be at a healthy weight.
I want to take care of the temple God gave me. So here we go again...
