June 6 Weigh in-Another loss!!

Saturday, June 07, 2008

Yippee--I lost 1.4 pounds this week which makes me very happy. I was pretty lazy after my doctor's appointment and then I realized that it was my afternoon to hit the scales. Even though I had been lazy and I weighed in with my jewelry on, I still had a nice loss. I am sure that I will have a "leveling off" kind of week after having lost around 9 pounds in 3 weeks.

That will get thrown off because of my surgery--maybe I will weigh in on Wednesday just to have a weight this week and to stay committed to my plan even while I am in the hospital. It is very hard to follow any food plan in the hospital because they bring food that I don't much care for and visitors bring things that I shouldn't have, but am far too week to resist. I will pack a few of my own goodies this time around avoid this. Planning ahead may save me.

I have lots of other planning to do for this big family of mine, including 2 June birthdays and Father's Day in the immediate future. I need to get started very soon, like a couple of hours ago, ha ha...... emoticon

    Congrats on your weight loss Sylvia! Surgery doesn't necessarily mean putting on, and your idea to take your own goodies sounds good. Hospital food is bad anyway and the portions are small. You can keep a diary of cals or food ingested to keep you honest. I hope everything goes well and that you're back home quickly and able to convalesce in a friendly environment. I kept loosing weight and I couldn't believe it was happening, it's still happening and each week I'm astonished.
I also have 3 birthdays in June but they're all OS: my dad, my only nephew and my best friend so it's a month of presents.
Please yell if you need anything, we're here for you!

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
