Plateau land

Sunday, July 12, 2009

I am soooooo stuck on a plateau! Part of me is enjoying being even 20 pounds lighter, and when I look in the mirror I think, "Damn girl, you look pretty good!" But then I see the remaining 20 pounds and I think, "Girl, you got some work to do still." So I am still working at it, and I did way better this week, but still stuck. I discovered some food traps this week, which is good.


one more pound gone

Well, I lost a pound this week, but man did it feel like I had to work for it! All those hungry nights and all that exercise for only a pound. Wow!

    I hear you! I have been losing about 1-2 pounds a week. I keep telling myself that slow and steady is better than fast because I am keeping it off!

Getting back to normal, ready for phase 2

Saturday, May 30, 2009

Well it's been 6 weeks of insanity for DH and I as we did a major remodel. Living at friends' houses and out of the back of the truck, long hours and long weeks. Finally we are home again and resting and recovering and settling back to normal. We are cooking at home again and the fridge is full of food again. Through it all I seemed to have only gained a pound or two, and this week we are getting the weight loss program back on track. I am nearly at 160 again, which was my half way mark, and I am ready for phase two. I'm trying to cut out a few more calories. Previously my target calories were 1667, now I am shooting for about 1550 a day. That is tough though, because it means I can't even sneak out for a morning mocha without extra exercise to make up for it.

I think I've got it...

Monday, March 23, 2009

Yesterday DH and I sat down and reviewed expenses. How does this relate to a diet one might ask? Well, it turns out that our eating out receipts were slowly piling up. We didn't realize how much we were eating out again. And the eating out corresponds to the busy time, and the time the weight loss stopped.

What on earth do they put in the restaurant food?!


Temper tantrum

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Picture me jumping up and down, stamping my feet, and screaming. I am so close to my half way mark I can taste it. All I needed to lose this week was .7 of a pound. Should be doable, right?! I cut my calories, but stayed in the healthy zone. I increased my exercise. I. worked. hard. This morning I got on the scale for my weekly weigh in and it said 162 (up from 160.6). I know part of that is probably hormones and water retention; I seem to be particularly susceptible to that. But for cryin' out loud, what to I have to do? So for all of you out there with me, working hard at getting no where, this scream of frustration is for you.
