Today's Weigh-in

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

It's disheartening. I gained 2.7 pounds. I ate well most of the week but once again was unable to exercise because of sore knees, etc.

How am I going to do for the next week when I'm not exercising and I have six special events to go to? One tonight, two on Friday, one on Saturday, one on Monday and one on Tuesday. Sigh...

I don't want to gain but I don't see how I can help it. I'm one of those people who wants to put in my mouth what I can see and smell. Point in fact, my friend at work brought a baggie of goodies over for my husband and she made me a small baggie because she knows that I'll just eat his if I don't get my own and all day long, it was calling my name so at lunchtime, I ate two shortbread and two chocolate macaroons and then I ate the remaining shortbread and macaroon when I got home last night.

But, the good part about this is that from yesterday morning when I weighed in to this morning when I weighed in, I lost 1.2 pounds. So, maybe eating not great isn't necessarily bad.

And, Christmas dinner at my dad's house on Saturday doesn't sound too unhealthy - we're all supposed to bring our favourite salad and something crusty and my sister (who lives there, too) is making a large capon and providing something sweet for dessert.

So, maybe I'm worried for nothing.

    Hey, it does sound like your family is trying to be more conscientious about their diet; that's some help. I'm the same way; if I smell it, or see it, or just know about it, I want some. That's always worst just before the TOM for me, which could be some consolation.

Even though, I'm still not exercising because of my knee problems, I'm down 2.4 pounds today for a grand total of 23.6 since January! Yay, me!

Today's Weigh-in

Wednesday, December 05, 2007

I gained weight this week (1.8 pounds) but I'm not surprised since I only did 50 minutes of exercise for the whole week and I haven't been eating very well. In fact, I went out to dinner last night with my sister and so I weighed in yesterday morning in case I went overboard last night and this morning when I weighed in, I actually weighed point 4 less than yesterday morning.


I'm ready for Christmas but...

Sunday, December 02, 2007

Boy am I ever sore. I just spent the last 2 hours decorating the house for Christmas. But my arms and legs are killing me.

I've also done two loads of laundry and am just starting my third and then I have to make dinner. I'm making roast beef, garlic mashed potatoes and a veg (either cauliflower or zucchini - I'm leaning towards the zucchini).

My husband is working and won't be home until midnight so I can make supper whenever I like. I also have to do the recycling and watch a DVD that's due back at the library tomorrow (Happy Feet).

And, I exercised this morning for 50 minutes. Hopefully with all this activity today, my next weigh-in won't be too horrible since I haven't exercised since last Monday.

Overall, I lost 3.2 pounds for the month but this week has been bad. I haven't done any real exercise since Monday because my left knee is killing me and it seems when this happens, I tend to eat more, too so I've been eating too much and not exercising. So, going into December, I don't know how I'm going to do next weigh-in (on December 5th).

Oops, I made a mistake - overall, I actually lost 6 pounds for the month! Yay me!

    Joanna ~ 3.2 pounds this month is Great! it really is! I feel your pain as my knee is bothering me this week ~ and I TOO tend to overeat or just eat more than I should when I'm exercising less. I think frustration leads to overeating too...I think that during a week when exercise is limited simply getting thru without Gaining is good news. I find it very difficult to lose weight by just eating less alone....the exercise is crucial for me to lose weight. I hope your knee's feeling better real soon! hang in there!
