Reassessing my approach

October 30, 2011

Well, this isn’t working. I find that posting my weekly weigh-ins is about as fun as getting a root canal. It’s time for me to go back to what has worked for me before, monthly weigh-ins. I had hoped for the sake of this blog that I could deal with watching those weekly numbers, but I don’t think I can.

Also, my diet is a problem. Let’s just say I’ve strayed quite a bit from the low-carb way of eating. It really wasn’t that bad but it’s hard to get back into it when you’re enjoying carbs as much as I do. :)

So I need to reevaluate what’s going to work in my life. I’ve been thinking about it a lot and wonder if I should go back to the very basics of plain old portion control, at least for a while. This next month is going to be super-super busy, so I need to have a plan that doesn’t take a lot of my attention for the time being.

I’m going to weigh myself on the first of each month as I used to, but I’m not starting until December 1. I really don’t want to know how far I’ve fallen right now.

I will try my best to post here on a somewhat regular basis, but don’t be surprised if I’m still mostly absent for the next month. I hope to get back in the groove well before the new year rolls around.

Hi Stephanie, thanks for commenting! I’m having the same problem. It’s been pretty quiet here on the site because I’ve been trying to figure out the best way to proceed – a plan I can live with but that will get the results I want. I’ll get there eventually, just not sure how at the moment! :) I hope the motivational tools help, and that we can encourage each other! :)
