August...nightmare weight month

I have been checking a few other blogs and it appears I am not alone in my summertime gaining of L-B's. So when it was all said and done with camping, taking care of a lot of kids 24-7, vacation, and not getting to the gym to strength train-I ended up at 129.5 lbs. Yikes!!! That's 3.5 lbs more than I had at the end of July.

So, I had a week to get back into the groove and practice my learned tried and true WW program and exercise-I am down to 128 lbs. at last night's weigh-in. I've been teetering on getting to so close to my goal weight just to sabotage myself somehow (i.e. bake a massive cherry pie). I am resolved to stop resisting success. I am afraid that I don't know what to do with having achieve this goal so I've been subconsciously sabotaging my hard efforts of the past 7 months.

New attitude came in the form of last night's meeting when I looked around and talked to two sweet ladies that had still 100 lbs. to lose to reach goal and they are still trekking along. They each have lost over 60 lbs. so far. So inspirational and humbling at the same time. What the heck do I have to whine about? I'm so close.

With this in mind, I went to the gym and participated in a Total Body workout session with the gym's Uber trainer and my butt, stomach, and the rest of the body parts kicked back into gear. I can't laugh today-it hurts too much. I'm avoiding any funny people today. I believe in trainers. They are should work for the CIA, FBI and all the other government abbreviated agencies that might need to use torture to gather information. Bring on the pain. Must not laugh...
