January 1, 2010 - I had exercised 253 days the previous year (2009)
January 1, 2011 - I exercised 344 days last year (2010)
So, that's one good thing.
January 1, 2010 - I weighed 219 pounds
January 1, 2011 - I weighed 225 pounds
January 1, 2010 Measurements
Chest - 44"
Waist - 40"
Hips - 48"
January 1, 2011 Measurements
Chest - 44.5"
Waist - 42"
Hips - 49"
So, that's not good either. The gain in weight obviously wasn't muscle.
September 2010 - I met with a dietician to discuss why I wasn't losing weight. I brought random days of the week food diaries printed off of SparkPeople. She said that it appeared that I was doing everything right and that maybe I should just resign myself to not losing weight due to my autoimmune disease (RA) and the medications I'm on. She said continue eating well and exercising and at least you'll be healthy. But I wasn't ready to give up. I've been trying to lose weight since 1998. Compared to then, I'm down 40 or so pounds. But I didn't have rheumatoid arthritis then. I didn't get that until 2004 so should I give up?
I just can't yet. So, tomorrow I'm giving Weight Watchers another try. I lost 70 pounds on it before so I'll try it again. I'm also going to try an aqua-fit class and see how that goes.
I'm a Taurus and I'm stubborn (persistent) to the end (especially with myself). I just can't give up because I know that if I lose weight, I'll feel better. And, because if I can't lose weight then what's the point in trying?
