May 30--I lost again after I won!!

Sunday, June 01, 2008

I haven't been here much since Wednesday because school won the lottery for my time. Monday is the last day and I'm not going to have my big classroom finished, but I managed to get my report cards finished for the other building as well as shutting down that classroom with my older daughter's help. (She's a peach!!) I was there until 6 on Wednesday and finished around 5 on Friday.
I spend mornings at my other school and it houses most of my belongings and a building bookroom that has been a pet project of mine. I will finish my report cards for that building over the weekend and then spend Monday working there. I was interrupted by an appointment with the thoracic vascular surgeon who is scheduled to help do my coming back surgery. He is having me have some tests next week before he signs off on this--I wasn't ready for that. This surgery is my chance to walk and to be more pain free than I have been for a long time. Although I'm nervous, I realized how much I'm counting on i t now that i t may be cancelled.
I always weigh in on Friday after work...and I lost 2.6 more pounds. YAY. I wish that I'd have found this place when I started losing weight, but that puts me just shy of 40 total pounds. I have a total here of 7.8 lost in 2 weeks and I am happy. I am hoping to stay with the healthy average of 2 pounds a week, so banking a bit right now for the dreaded plateau is awesome.

I hope that the lack of structure next week is good for me and that I can keep my loss going. I know that I'll be at this for a while, but I am working for a 10% goal, 30 pounds for the 15 weeks of summer.

    Hi and congrats again of the weight loss. In My tools when you log in ther is a start tab and if you press it there is a button called weigh in ( apart form nutrition tracker and fitness) and there it's where you write down your weight every week and measurements, they automatically appear in your ticker next time.

Friday Weigh In!!

Monday, May 26, 2008

May 23--I lost 5.2 pounds this week--hooray. Although I know that I won't do that consistently and that this is a special loss, it has given me motivation to keep working on the plan that I have made for myself. I am proud of avoiding all of the treats and parties in both of my schools for the past week. emoticon emoticon

    Thanks to you both for your kind words. This is a very large site and it will be an adventure for me to explore things and to find out how things work. My most immediate need is to find out how to register my current weight on the "number line" with the "ticker." I am sure the information is there, but I haven't found it yet.

I am sure that I have found a powerful tool to help me in my weight loss journey here. Thanks again, Sylvia

    Congrats on your weight loss and most importantly for making the decision to change your lifestyle. And yes there will be times when the scales won't move but you will overcome it with the help from SP. Remember it's a journey and not a race.
Yell if you need anything, this is a vast website to learn to navigate.
