I lost 3 pounds!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Well ... maybe... I'm not putting it as my official weigh in because part of it is just lack of bulk I'm sure - I skipped dinner last night. But when I weighed myself this morning it was 147. Maybe I should skip dinner every night?

For breakfast this morning, I had a take on an old suggestion from the Spark diet plan - Toasted English Muffin, Warmed Refried Beans, and some shredded cheese on top of that. It's such a nice simple breakfast and perfect for a fall morning :-)

    Congrats! I say that if you see it on the scale, it's countable! Just be careful about skipping meals. That breakfast sounds good, too. I'll have to try that.

    Good for you, but skipping meals isn't the way to do it, too hard on your body and when the next meal rolls around you are super hungry, especially as its a long time between lunch and breakfast! The idea is to keep your blood sugar levels steady and you won't feel the need to snack or overeat in between meals.
Sounds like a good breakfast, enjoy!
Good luck with your goal,

  I'm always down when I skip dinner. That's what i say - who needs dinner anyway.

Here we go again

It's time to get serious. I managed to gain the Holiday 5 plus a few pounds during the last part of 2007. I had started to get back on track, then got sick at the end of January for about a week. That week was followed by a week of general sloth. I did an encore of sickness and then finally dragged myself into the gym on Sunday.

Talk about discouraging.... Before my 3 week slump, I had been able to do 66 minutes on the elliptical (2 consecutive weight loss cycles) and jog a mile and a half. Sunday I barely made it for 30. Yesterday was the same, although I did manage to do some light weights before I gassed. Today felt a little better. I haven't mustered the courage to hit the treadmill again yet. It's amazing how quickly you can lose your momentum and conditioning.

Then to add to it, I did my measurements today - I've gained THREE INCHES on my waist since Jan. 18. *whimper* Forget about fitting into the cute gym outfits I had gotten myself as a reward for all my previous hard work.

Today is my last day of dietary cheating (I hope) for a while. I leave for Colorado on March 18 to see my family. My goal is to be down at least 5 pounds by then. 6 or 7 would be grand, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Buh bieee Dr. pepper. Buh bieeee wine. Buh bieee chocolate.

Hello salad, brown rice and black beans! I've missed you, it'll be nice renewing our acquaintance.

I practically haven't exercised at all this week. Yet I'm losing weight faster than when I was going to the gym 2-3 times a week.

What gives?
