Back over 300 pounds again. Sigh.
Now, I’ll acknowledge that some of this isn’t my fault. I managed to contract bronchitis for that, and oral steroids are one of the medications for treating bronchitis, and those help you gain weight. And, of course, I didn’t exercise much because of the bronchitis. That said, I didn’t exercise much last week before I was diagnosed, and I didn’t so much meet my calorie budget as I did exceed it and keep going. There were some reasons – family health issues and the like – but that’s partly an excuse. I could still have stayed on task with the calorie intake, even if I didn’t manage the exercise.
Ah, well. Water under the bridge. Now it’s time to do better. I’m trying to think of last week as an experiment in seeing what happens if I don’t meet my goals, and now I know. With that information in mind, I’ll just get up and get moving and do better. As I keep saying, this is a process and a journey. I haven’t failed, just because I had a bad week. I only fail if I stop.
