Here it is about a month since I decided to blog about my attempt to lose weight. I haven’t managed to incorporate regular exercise into my life, yet. I also have struggled all this month with losing and gaining the same 2 – 4 pounds. At my weigh-in Monday, I had gained 2.5 pounds. That’s not the kind of thing I am striving for. The good news is that for the month, I am still 2 pounds down. Not the 10 I was hoping for, but at least it is down instead of up! I walked yesterday morning with grand ambitions of walking the rest of the week. Then at about 11:45 am, I was hit with chills, then a fever, and a sore throat that just kills. I caught it from my children. I have periods during the day when my temp is around 100 and I can function. Then it spikes again, and I crash. So the exercise plan has once again been put on hold. Hopefully early next week will be a good time to get going and I will be over this flu or whatever it is. I really want to make this work, and I am at a pivotal point in the WOE I am using. In other words, I am getting bored with it, so cheating is much more tempting. Being sick makes it easier to justify cheating too. So if you think of it, pray for me to get over these hurdles.
