Why Is It Tough To Lose Weight?

Weighed in this morning at 178 pounds.

Over the past couple weeks from my last post, I had went back up to 180 pounds.

It's so tough to lose weight because sticking to a diet itself is boring. You can stick to it for awhile, but then your resolve wears off, and the temptation gets stronger.

Of course, it doesn't help that my wife went on a cooking spree. On many days she doesn't feel well due to her kidney failure and dialysis treatments. But the past couple weeks she's felt better, and on several of those days she started cooking. Cooking is what she loves to do.

So, she's been cooking me lunches and dinners. I can't complain, because I want her to feel well, and I want her to enjoy what strength she can muster. And it makes her feel good to know that I enjoyed her cooking.

So what's a dieter to do?

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon mowing the lawn, and reorganizing my garage. I threw out a bunch of stuff. I have more to throw out, but my trash cans are full. Believe it or not, I can't wait for Thursday, because that's when the trash gets picked up, and I can clean more stuff out of the garage.

And that's what I need to do to counter the temptations to eat, more exercise, more work. Gotta keep burning the calories.
