The Agony of Defeat

Okay, here’s the deal. I am so very frustrated I could cry. My scales and I are continuing to have the same old argument. I say “got to 145” and it does not obey. It continues to bypass 145 on it’s way to 150. Now, when I was eating 1200 calories or less, I lost weight. That’s how I got from 160 to 150. But I thought I could slip in another 300 calories or so and still lose a bit, even if my loss slowed. It didn’t slow. It stopped. And I have been in denial about that for quite a while, because I do not like to be hungry. I do not like to feel deprived. I want what I want and I want to eat 1600 calories a day AND lose weight. That is not happening.

So! back to the basics. 1200 calories a day, and walking three times a week. And if I veer from that plan before I leave for Orlando on September 11th, please send a great big man with an even bigger paddle over here to spank me, ok?
