Not Happy

I’m not happy with the amount of weight I have gained. Yes I stepped on the scale again. I know they say dont do it, but I did. I am up 5 lbs. Now I have gained 20 lbs. I have decided that I need to stop intuitive eating. Basically I have been eating whatever I want. I now need to figure out how to eat without gaining more weight.

I wish I could afford a couch but I dont have that kind of money. Just to join a community forum group is 30 a month. Crazy! I will spend this week researching how to lose the weight without having to go on a diet.

I was so happy that my blood tests were so good since I quit dieting. But now I need to change it. I have hurt my lumbar muscles which makes it difficult to exercise. I am slowly starting with basic stretching. Go walking on the days when it isn’t raining. I will do this. I will lose 10 lbs by the end of March. That is my goal.
