I'm back, AGAIN!!

Hi there,
as you can see from the title of this post, I'm back here again. I've struggled this year to find the motivation to diet or exercise. We've had lots of distractions going on, many of them centered around my littlest grandson, Nathaniel, who along with his mum and dad, live at my house. He has been very ill and has had a major operation and has been in and out of hospital since he was born in January.

However, I want to start again - I'm back to 197lbs, which is 4.5lbs less than a few weeks ago and 51lbs less than at my heaviest. My aim is still to get to 145lbs, so I've got 52lbs to go. Quite a lot more than I had to lose in October, but significantly less than January last year :)

I have got myself a fitbug, which is a pedometer that can be connected up to my computer and it tells me how many calories I've used, as well as both the aerobic and total steps walked. The Fitbug site also enables me to input the food I've eaten and it works out various things including whether for that day/week/month my calorie input/output has put me in the weight loss, weight maintenance or weight gain category, which I really like.

I have realised that I'm always going to struggle to keep on the straight and narrow, just because of the sort of person I am. However, last year I also learnt lots of ways of overcoming this, so I'm just going to have to keep plugging away and making sure I never give up totally.
