I've done this all before...
the weight loss
the eating right
Why, oh WHY is everything so much harder this time around?? Everyone says it's harder to lose weight/ harder to get in shape the older you get - and boy are they right! I lost 60 pounds doing Weight Watchers my first year teaching and on weeks where I worked hard - I could lose several pounds. Now I'm busting my ass to just get a pound or two down. Frustrating.
Then there was 2005 when I decided that I was going to train for a 5K. Took a couple of months, but I was running with relative ease. My legs were stronger, my breathing was easier - and it's SO hard coming back to it.
I figured it would be EASIER the second time around. But I guess extra years and extra weight have other plans for me.
I'm not giving up. Oh no - don't you worry about that... It's just frustrating how much harder (and PAINFUL) it is doing this now...
