Well, today was my group class. We get weighed every week. Last week, I had gained 2.7 pounds from the week before. Today, though, I thought it would go oh so much better. Ha!!! Not so fast. Yesterday, I had lost the 2.7 pounds, because I have being really watching what I am eating, and I have been exercising a lot. Well, last night I was in so much pain, I could not sleep. So I ended up getting 2.5 hours of sleep, and when it came time to weigh in, I had gained 4.2 pounds since yesterday. I know that that isn't really an accurate reading; but it sure burst my bubble. I ended up in tears for the entire hour that I was in my group, but I sat there and listened to what was being covered today. I have been getting 10,000 steps for the last 3 days. I am not sure I am up to it today. Not giving up; but a bit discouraged.

I am so depressed this morning. I am doing the right things, NOW. But with all the wrong that I have done in the past 6 months, since quitting smoking (or if that caused it, doesn't matter, since I am in this shape now). Anywhooo, I don't know what to do with the feelings I am having. I am just now getting back on track with things. I knew I was unhappy with how I looked and have been wearing alot of sweats to ignore myself. However, I put on jeans and a tshirt today, and I look like sausage poured into sausage casing. Feeling really gross about myself, and I don't know what to do with the feelings. Just gonna cry for a while. Won't give up on the working out; but I sure hope I see a difference in the near future (no I am not looking to lose it all in a week; but a couple of pounds would help).

I want to lose weight to be comfortable in my own skin. I want to beat the odds in my family, of gaining weight and the health problems associated with it as you get older. I want to be fit enough to watch my grandchildren, since my son expects me to do this on a regular basis. I want to enjoy the time I have with them, not be so tired I just want them to go home. I want to be able to keep up with them to some degree, and be able to play with them. Also, would love to feel better about my body, so I would feel sexier for my husband!

Well I have been trying a different website to lose weight, and so far no luck. That doesn't mean that I am giving up, or that I had ever completely written Sparkpeople off. I had continued to log in every few days; but not enter my food, or do much of anything else. I really believe that I am better off doing Sparkpeople, as the other site is a little bit to hard on a person. It has led me to be a bit obsessed about every bite of everything that I eat. Which, while in and of itself is not a bad thing, it grades you on everything you eat. I tended to do well on the grades; but I was giving up what I know is nutrious food to get those grades. I was not being optimistic, I was being obsessed with grades and getting in under 1200 calories a day. The worst part was that I actually gained 1.5 pounds in 4 weeks, booo!!!! So instead of being obsessed, I chose to be optimistic about my weight loss and what I know is nutrious, and continue on with Sparkpeople to what I know will be a successful end.

Well the time has come that I have to blog. I am on day 5 of quitting smoking. On Day 3, I hear the discouraging news that the average person gains 11 pounds within a year of quitting. I am not going to be in that group. I am determined I am not. However, I am equally determinted not to smoke anymore. Don't think I want to go through the withdrawls again. I haven't actually measured my food this week or done much physical activity. I need some encouragement in that area. Haven't had an appitite, and all I want to do is sleep. I think I am trying to sleep through the anxiety and withdrawls. Can't do that now, because the grandchldren are here for the weekend, and I have to help out around the house, Must get involved, could sure use some encouragement!!!! Thanks
