"a little rounder"

Someone who hasn't seen me for a while said I was "a little rounder", granted, I asked for his opinion. He did say that I was still beautiful, though he said "in a different way".


Also, acid in my throat interfered with my sleeping today.

I guess it's time to buckle up and just do it. Exercise, lose weight. Which I've been trying to do, but it's time to get serious again. I know, I've thought that before. But I'm not about to gain back all the weight I've lost.

Person who said I was a little rounder: please don't reply to me via email or LJ to this post. It's not your fault, you didn't mean harm or criticism. I've been aware of my weight gain anyways.

The rest of you: I don't need patronizing or "but you're beautiful" comments. You try waking up with acid in your throat or not fitting in the expensive gorgeous dress you wore in a party last year.

I'm grumpy about my weight.

Sounds like your system works like mine. I also have little success when I "try to lose weight", especially by paying very much attention to (temporary) diet strategies, and absolutely require increased exercise to get anywhere.

My solution to this is to NOT try to lose weight and NOT diet. Keep weight totally out of my goals, and try not to think of my eating habits as dieting or watching calories, but instead as being more attentive to what my body needs & wants, instead of falling into a habitual rut or eating to medicate mood. I put my major focus on looking for ways to increase exercise in a way that I will enjoy (or at least not-hate) enough to keep up, and a secondary focus on making more concious food choices.

I'm not getting enough consistent exercise these days, since I lost a few of my most rewarding opportunities (SCA dance :-( ) and in the last few months a combination of health issues and work commitments have made it harder for me to move my lazy butt.
But I will if you will!
