Old Ways

I feel my self slipping into old ways. I'm back around my partner in crime and even though he is actually staying on top of things, I am not. I kind of am. I haven't been really keeping track of what I eat though. I do really well when I keep track using the Weight Watchers points system. I see results. It's the only time I've seen results while at home and living my regular life. I need to get it together or I'm going to gain back those 20lbs. I had already forgotten it was 20 and had been thinking of it as ten. Maybe I'll be re-energized knowing I've made more progress than I've realized. I better way myself and make sure it's not just 10 now.

Control Issues

It should be noted that what I believe to be one of the factors in losing weight while I was abroad is my control issues. In addition to all the exercise and healthy food, I had someone who was always telling me to eat. I can't handle that. I don't want someone telling me what to do. The more I was told to eat, the less I would eat. Much to my surprise, I was still full. I ate the tiniest amounts of food and they filled me up. It was a really good lesson in how much I really need to eat.

I overeat and I know it. Try it sometime. Just pay really close attention to whether or not you're hungry anymore. You'll amaze yourself at how little food it can take.

Anyway, I'm going to try to lose another 20 lbs. Then 20 more after that, and if I lose another 20, I'll weigh what I weighed freshman year of high school. I thought I was fat then. I did weight a lot more than most of my friends. I still do.
