What's Newton's law again? An object in motion wants to stay in motion? Yeah. Something like that. Well, Fleur's law seems to be that a woman who eats tends to want to keep eating. And eating. And eating some more.
I've been gone from the world-o'-blog for a while, you may have noticed. :) I don't have a great excuse. We didn't move, or have a baby, or lose a close family member (thank goodness to all of that). My excuse is that I fell off the wagon. Hard. And, up until now, I have been ashamed to admit it. Even to myself. But I finally stepped onto the scale this morning and forced myself to admit the truth. I have gained back 30 pounds since January. "Hi, my name is Fleur. Hi, Fleur. And I am once again overweight."
This time I want to do it better. I want to learn to enjoy fruits and veggies as a normal part of life. I want to snack on healthy things, instead of WW 1 point snack bars that are made from who-knows-what. I bought a gym membership last week. I want to use it to build muscle and actually get in shape.
This is me and my mom at my brother's wedding two weeks ago. My mom has done fabulous at maintaining her weight loss. I'm so proud of her! Doesn't she look great!? I need to get my inspiration from her.
In my new spirit of transparency and honesty and accountability, here are my current stats:
30 years old
185 pounds (up from my goal weight of 155)
36% body fat (as measured by my fitness evaluation at the gym)
Bleah. I can do better than that. Here's to do-overs.
