Why does it have to be so hard!

Sunday, January 23, 2011

From 155 to 158 to 155 to 158....honestly this yo yo is getting old. I could fast for a couple days but I'd just put it on again as soon as I started eating. This is just frustrating and old. I'm going for a walk in the sun.

The party in Vegas was awesome, and I did enjoy the double takes of me in my dress ;-)

    It sounds like that might be water weight, possibly from sodium. See if tracking your sodium gets you out of the rut. It did for me! (It's under Nutrition tracker, "Add a nutrient.")

    Boy do I know how you feel, your numbers are my numbers and the yo yo is shared between us and so many others.

We just need to keep up the good work we are doing and the numbers will come down.

You can do it and you made such a good decision by going take a walk.

Good luck to you!

Misc thoughts

Our company is having a 30th anniversary party in Las Vegas on the 20th. It has been an organizational disaster until today, when I think we have finally got it in hand. I bought my party dress this weekend, a size 12, woo hoo! Am still hoping to drop a few more pounds between now and then....


Happy New Year!

Sunday, January 02, 2011

This is going to be the year I make my goal weight. A few more months of focus and a little more hard work and I should be there. I am ready to finish this weight loss journey and move on with my new healthy life and healthier me.


A new low, in a good way

Saturday, December 11, 2010

Well, this morning I hit a new low, 155. I walked to work when it wasn't raining this week, made it to aikido once, and otherwise managed to avoid too many pitfalls. I even managed to accommodate the surprise tall latte one of my SE's brought me when he showed up in town unexpectedly. Feels pretty good to have the hard work paying off. Now back to work!


Heading in the right direction again

Saturday, December 04, 2010

I've extended my walk to work every morning so when I walk I get 30 minutes in before work. I walked 4 times this week. Friday was rainy and I thought I might get soaked, so I drove. Plus I was just really tired from an extremely frustrating, unproductive week. This week I mostly managed to stay in my calories, which I have dropped to 1560 on exercise days, and I aim for under that on days I don't get exercise. I am now back under 160 again. DH is really struggling with his diet. There just doesn't seem to be any way I can help him. That makes me feel bad, and I struggle when I have a "successful" week and he has no change, or a change in the undesired direction. Two years ago on Dec 1 we started this diet, and were greatly successful all through the holidays, so I know I/we can do it again.
