I had a checkup with the oncologist yesterday. Mostly a waste of time, but my blood pressure was finally back into a normal range after a few years of being high! I may not be losing weight lately but at least the exercise is paying off in other ways!
And yes, everything is still fine, all the blood tests were good. Couple more weeks and another mammogram, which I am certain will still be negative.

Well I made the mistake of buying a bag of fun sized snickers - after all I have a skinny teenager at my house. Then yesterday was very stressful - car repair of over $500. So I was bad, did not exercise, ate 5 of said snickers, and a brownie that was left over from a picnic the skinny teenager attended.
Then for dinner my favorite non-fried comfort food, meatloaf.
Oh well, tonight will be better. I always avoid candy while watching the Biggest Loser. Try to only eat low cal healthy things during the show :) And no teenager home for dinner so crustless quiche and turkey bacon for me and the hubby.
Now if I can just do some floor exercises before he gets home from work......

Well Saturday evening was fun! I took my oldest daughter out for her birthday, first a bunch of us went out to eat (not good for me, but fun), then just us girls ( and my youngest daughters boyfriend because he forgot to plan a way to escape) went shopping. Because we did not get to look at what we wanted my youngest daughter and I went shopping again on Sunday afternoon for awhile.
Now she is very thin and likes her clothes tight so she has always complained about how loose I like to wear mine. But yesterday for the first time in at least ten or twelve years I actually bought a shirt in a medium!! It is a little more form fitting than I usually perfer but Natalie was correct - it did look better than the large. And since some of the sweaters from last winter were a 2X I am very happy!
Now because of the bad eating this weekend I am up three lbs of water, but I know that if I drink extra today and get back on track that will leave. And I still own the medium shirt :)

Well today is one of those days when I am struggling - once again no weight loss, in fact up a lb. Now I know the lb up is just water weight or a normal flucuation, but it still is the same number on the scale. When I go a month and lose nothing it is really frustrating!!! I have been exercising, have been avoiding "white" except for Sunday (church picnic and sad because my son wasn't there), but still nothing.
But as we were getting ready to go out for lunch - instead of eating what we had brought - I got a compliment. My boss's boss who hardly ever talks to me asked if I had been losing weight, said she had really noticed, and asked what I had been doing.
Now we still went out for lunch mind you - but I got a grilled chicken on wheat sandwich with a side salad instead of fries.
So make sure you notice thing, give people encouragement, sometimes it will make a difference you are not even aware of.
