Ever have one of those mornings? I got up today and felt, well, thinner. I felt as though I had lost some weight. Yesterday, wearing my "fat" jeans that I wear to work, they felt looser. I know I have been eating right and keeping within my calorie range.
So, today before I got into the shower I thought I would take a look. What do you know??? I GAINED A POUND!!! Arghhhhh what's that about.
After some good hard thinking I did remember that the shrimp I had last night was salty. Can one retain an entire lb of water, I don't know. But, even if it is water retention, then so what? I still didn't lose anything.
I will not give up. I am staying the course. I will lose this weight....again. It can just be so frustrating sometimes.
I think that I will wait until I feel fat. That way maybe the scale will say I've lost some weight.

She said, "Come to the gym with me mom." I thought, "What a great idea. We can spend some quality time together and I get exercise to boot!"
She said, "Try the circuit training mom." She said, "It's easy mom" Well, ok, I haven't done this in years but why not? How hard can it be???
.....she LIED!!! I'm in so much pain!! Yeouchhhhhhh!!!
Ok, I'm really not in horrible pain but my muscles are really sore and I kind of think that's a good thing. Yesterday I did feel a kind of pull in my back but I iced it when I got home and I'm fine today.
Well, that was harder than I thought!!! Ok, yes, I'll do it again..and again...and again... hey I may even join once she goes back to school!
But, be wary when your child says, "It's easy". Look at them then look at you....see what I mean???

It's been an interesting week. Yes, I'm up a little but not as much as I thought I would be. I am now so old, with a number so high that when spoken only dogs can hear it!!!
The week started when my brother came by on Monday to celebrate an early birthday with me (it was Tuesday) and to see one of my sons little league games. As a special gift, he brought me a chocolate mousse birthday cake made at one of the best bakeries in the region. Ok, that's the bad news but the good news is, as much as I love chocolate, I really don't like chocolate mousse! Ah! I just had a little bit (although the chocolate ganache on top of the cake was yummy.
The next day my daughter came in from school. She had a few days off between finals and thought it would be a good idea to take home some of her stuff and come and celebrate her mom's birthday.
So, the next night we went out to one of our favorite places called "Ricks". The food is always great but hey, it was my birthday. ok, that's the bad news. The "strange" good news was that for the first time ever, the food was awful (so was the service). It was so bad I sent something back and gave my son my meal (his was inedible). So we just went home and the kids had some cake. I had a taste of the frosting, that was it.
Last night, since my daughter was leaving today to go back to school, we went out for pizza. We went to the place we love and yes, I had a couple of pieces (not big ones). It was great. We came home, the kids had some cake (I didn't) and what was left I threw out.
This morning I was thinking I probably put on about 3 lbs. but it was just 1 1/2. I don't think it's real weight and I am hoping it will be gone by weigh in Sunday. That's the only weight I really count.
So, let's hope it's gone and maybe it will take a friend or two. It's 11 am and I've already taken a 4 mile hike!!!
