One of the reasons I've been a bit quieter on this blog, besides the whirlwind of surgery, is that I started dating a wonderful fellow. It's so awesome to find a boyfriend who likes me for who I am.
We've had magical times playing video games, taking trips to Yellowstone and having lots of fun adventures. There have also been many meals out...and herein lies my problem. I've gained back a few pounds. Wii Fit told me today I am around 238 or so. I'm still down from where I had been, but I have to head this off before it gets worse.
I am in luck - he's very supportive of me in my quest to lose weight. We've talked about how we need to work on eating better. I should start cooking meals more instead of going out. Make sure I log my calories and save treats for special occasions.
I think part of the problem was that I fell momentarily into a bit of complacency. Even though I am doing this weight loss ultimately for myself and my health, I can't deny that a secondary part was because I wanted to get to a more "normal" weight to have a better chance at getting dates. Now that I have them all the time, a little bit of momentum was removed.
It's coming back though - I can't wait until he sees the end result and the super hot chica is a reality. I really can't wait to see the result myself. I still pore over people's before and after pictures to see how much they changed, and wonder if I will even recognize myself in the end.
How do you handle dieting and dating?
