I’ve been neglecting a lot of things lately. This blog most definitely. My house, my flowers, my knitting, my photography, my downsizing projects….oh the list could go on and on. The biggest neglect though, has been myself. I woke up a couple of weeks ago to find that I had packed on another 10 pounds so far this year. That was on top of the extra 40 I was already carrying around. How does this happen? Menopause, of course but I can’t blame it all on the M word because a few of the things that I haven’t neglected have been candy crush and dessert.
So, I hauled my ass back to weight watchers for the 10th time. So far I’ve lost 5 pounds and I’m going give it my best shot once again. There should be some sort of prize for the most times failing at weight watchers!
My biggest challenge is and always has been to not attach so much importance to food. Yes, food is important for survival but I am not in danger of starvation and I am not going to die if I don’t eat a cookie. Intellectually I know this but emotionally and spiritually I haven’t learned the lesson yet.
