Well, I'm definitely disappointed in myself. I've kept up with my exercising. I've even made "Rabbit" on my Mytrak. But my eating is horrible, terrible, no good, and very bad. I keep kicking myself, and eating more crap, and kicking myself again. It's a vicious and ridiculous cycle. How stupid can I get? I know I want to loose weight. I know I gotta exercise. I know I gotta eat right. But, NOPE. It reminds me of the old saying; "The definition of Insanity is repeating the same action expecting different results."

I could have seen the 160's now. But I'm looking at approximately the same weight I have for the past two months. That's just sad.

On another note, My wonderful husband has developed Gout. Can I tell you how excited I am!!! It makes sense. He has Kidney disease, and has a problem with cleaning proteins out of his blood. So having a build up in protein has lead to Gout. What's this mean? NO MORE MEAT AT HOME. I've done AMAZING at cutting out red meat. We have a steak a couple times a month, and hamburger very rarely (mostly turkey burger). But that means I've replaced all the red meat with Chicken. Is it ok? I looks like that's a NO! So, I have to readjust everything again, and start cooking meatless meals. I'm a bit excited about it though. I've been meaning, and wanting to do it for a long time. So, I've got to go find me a good vegetarian cook book and get my whole family healthy.

Now I'm going to end with some pics from our family hiking trip on Sunday.

Okay, I am sitting here wondering how I can help. I can certainly share encouraging words or go with the "kick in the pants." Not sure which, if either, you'd appreciate. So you tell me. How can I help?

I've been there and done that. Actually, I am writing about that same fabulous quote in a guest post coming up next week. So, if nothing else, I can assure you that you are not alone.

I completely understand. I have the fitness down, but making the right food choices is such a challenge. Right now I'm just trying to make one good decision at a time. :)

Maybe moving beyond 170lbs is kind of scary for you? I've had several barriers on my way so far and am facing another one right now, usually when I am about to move beyond a certain number (like, 75kg, 72kg, now 70kg) - I will hop up and down for forever (this week's daily weigh-ins (yes, I do daily weigh-ins when I meet a barrier like this, at least for a while, to get an idea of what is happening) included everything between 70.2kg and 69.8kg, moving up and down arbitrarily).

Well, even with the numbers not changing, we're still making progress, because we're sticking with good habits and not giving up.
