Weigh In Week 2

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Stayed the same. No loss this week which does not surprise me sa I did absolutely nothing. I ate on targt but don't think I burn a single calorie. HA! I have a serious case of The BLAHS. Have a list of things to do which is overwhelming to even look at and no go get em-nish to tackle any of it.

So I'll handle it and do my best to shake off whatever is holding me down and work at becoming more active this next week. Have already loss half of my goal so I am not worried as of yet. DH on the other hand is doing much better. Hw has cut way back on eating and is working out each day. I wish I could bottle his energy than I would be all set. emoticon

We have 2 trips coming up later this year so I think I will use those as inspiration to get my momentum moving on a more serious note beginning TODAY. emoticon

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Have the Blahs... What to do?

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Week 2 has ben slow going. No major issues but have been plagued with allergy symptoms which are giving me headaches and have me feeling downright BLAH. Otherwise I'm doing my bet ro hang in. I'm hoping for a good result come weigh in on Sunday but I will just have o wait and see.

DH has been rough to live with this week. Grumbling about EVERY LITTLE THING! Which just makes me want to take him out back and beat him with a stick. It certainly would be a good stress reliever emoticon but I think I need to find something less deadly. Jail time just doesn't sound fun to me!! emoticon

Can't wait until Winter is OVER!!!! I am sick of the cold! I want to get back outside. I think I have developed cabin fever/ winter blues. No energy this week at all . Motivation is there... just barely but I feel BLAAAAAAH overall! No other way to describe it. Part of me feels its because I don't feel good (allergy symtoms) and part is not sure. Any suggestions??

    I never had "winter allergies" until this year - my youngest son is having the same problem (although he has more allergies than my spring allergies, he isn't usually bothered a lot in the winter like this). I think it is because of all the dampness last year, continuing with a wet spring and the unusual snow (in MD) so far. It is causing a lot of leaf mold, etc. I ended up going to my allergist and getting flonase and although it seems weird, I'm doing my nose spray and allergy eye drops every day now like I do in May and June. I had also gotten to the point where all Fall, my lungs were filled with gunk, even though I haven't been sick for at least a year - all from the allergies. I went to a clinic and did a nebulizer treatment, got a short course of steroids, and a new inhaler. It cleared things up in a week and now I'm just dealing with the allergies. Sorry to be so long - I just wanted you to know that you are not alone!

week 1 Weigh In

Sunday, January 12, 2014

Week 1 complete! I dropped 5lbs.WOOHOO!!!! I feel refreshed and motivated that my first week back on track was a successful one. It has definitely upped my determination to keeping moving forward. I did really well incorporating 1 serving of fruit into my daily eating plan. This week I will shoot for 2 daily servings. Eventually I want to include 2 daily servings of fruit and 3 daily serving of vegetables as a starting point. This is an area where I usually struggle a lot with so Iím breaking it down into small increments and adding them little by little. This next week I also need to work on drinking more water and walking more. I have 7 more weeks to go for my Valentine goal and 3 more lbs to lose to meet my goal of 8 lbs so I will see how it goes. Have great week everyone!! emoticon

DH's Aha Moment to Come

Monday, January 06, 2014

I must say I am enjoying myself this morning. There is justice after all. My husband has decided to lose some weight. This recent revelation began a couple weeks back when he went shopping and found he is 3 sizes larger in pants. The huge belly he has been carrying around for over a year didn't get through to him. Our grandson remarking that Pepa has boobs last summer at the beach didn't ring any bells for him either. His BP rising to 145/100 hasn't motivated him neither. However larger pants did or so he says. Needless to say, he was NOT happy. And I can relate well!

So after 2 weeks on "his program", this morning he hopped on the scale, expecting miraculous results and saw he was still 210. He was quite shocked, upset and announced for all the neighbors to hear that "my scale" must be broke. I quite happily emoticon informed him that the scale is not broke that when one says they are going to lose weight than they must be willing to cut down on the amount of food they eat and not continue to pile it on their plate in heaps as if they will never eat again. Finishing off a Swiss Colony Cheese & Sausage box all by himself after dinner will not produce the results he wants. And one also must be willing to MOVE! This man spends an enormous amount of time laying in bed watching TV. Well he looked at me with his usual "Who, ME? I don't do that!" expression and walked away. He just doesn't get it! The whole premise that one actually needs to put in some effort before one can see result escapes him.

After years of watching me struggle with my weight and telling me repeatedly and sometimes abusively how easy it is to lose weight so why don't I just DO IT, DH aka Mr. Know It All is finally going to learn how truly difficult it is. Something he will actually have to work at. Now there's a concept! Although I wish him success because I know first hand how hard it is to do and just how unhealthy it is to carry around excess weight, I am still going to enjoy this new endeavor of his more than he will ever know. emoticon Fun as it will be to watch, I am sure he will eventually "get it" like we all have. His light bulb moment is yet to come.

    Hehe! Karma is a bitch... but hopefully you guys can work together at reaching your goals. It certainly makes it easier to get the job done anyways.

I'll be shocked if he can actually grow some balls and apologize for the things he's said to you. Now that'll be the day!!

Nothing like a dose of walking in another shoes to help a person understand it clearly!
I will be smiling every time I think about his, Sallie.

    Everybody has to have their Aha moment, before they appreciate the effort it takes to eat healthy and exercise.

Wish you both much success in your journey.

    I hope you are practicing your "I told you so" dance for when he finally does realize that weight loss includes cutting back, healthy choices and exercise. And what is it with this Mr. Know It All attitude that all men seem to have? Does that come encoded in their Y chromosome or something???
