Well i managed to gain 5 pounds over the weekend. So I am officially declaring pizza a bad food. I did track my pizza, had a total of 3 slices. I was only slightly over my calories for saturday with the pizza. I even worked out on sunday but still managed to go up from 215.5 to 220. I am honestly starting to think I need to see a doctor about my thyroid levels and maybe see if they can help me lose weight somehow.
In the interim, I am actually going to stop eating so much bread. I think that might be my main issues. I hadn't really eaten that much bread back at "home" in Nevada. I was often quite good with rice and such and my main bread was a pita every so often and the occasional sandwich. I think I have bread with every meal here. Sadly, I like bread. So this morning I didn't have my usual English Muffin and had eggs with spinach. I have one pita left, so I will enjoy that with dinner tonight with my Spark People Sloppy joes i made last night.
My husband really enjoys his bread as well. I don't think he will give up bread. He's lost about 13 pounds since my arrival. Not very fair, but I cook healthy meals and he eats less processed and prepared type meals.
My other confessed sin is Oreos. I have eaten more than I have tracked but I have at least tracked my oreo intake... I am going to go back to my refusal of having junk in the house. At least of my own volition. I know better than to have junky foods at the ready. I don't know why I have slipped. But even with the oreoes, I was still at 215.... I am not sure what happened this weekend that made me shoot up so much in 2 days. I was 219 this morning, but still! My frustration is building. I still do my work outs 4 times a week on the elliptical at least 30 minutes; I've been adding Pilates to strengthen my muscles in my back and bottom. My chiropractor has noticed my pelvis and spine are improving. I just wish the scale, clothes, and overall feeling inside was better...
I just wish I knew what really was wrong with me. If there is something psychological, what is it?? if it's physical, i need to get that under some control. I know my husband loves me and thinks i'm a sexy woman even at this weight. I just want to do it for me so I can maintain a better image of myself, keep my health in check and not have to stare at my double chin. :( (I swear it's getting bigger!)
On another note: I have found a lovely trail to hike down near the town I live. I am still attempting to make my way the whole loop, as it's about 7.6Km, and some of the trail is not well marked. So i'm trying to explore a little further each time. So far I have only gone down the trail twice, but i have learned I went the wrong way the second time! So I have an idea of where i need to be next trip! Plus, I got some great pictures of the Ruins of the palace there.
Sorry for the whine. I just thought getting it down on some form of physical diary type thing might help my though processes. Maybe this is why blogs were really invented! A way to just keep track of one's thoughts. Today will be eating better, no bread except for a pita bread, and a nice walk in town (plus elliptical later before dinner). Thanks

This is probably a rant, so don't read if you don't want to. It probably have some merit and I should probably see a doctor or something. Here goes!
I am not losing weight! I lost a pound and somehow gained 3 back. I have been tracking my eating very diligently. My husband even helps keep me on track. I had one bad eating day in the last 2-3 weeks and i've been working out at least 4 days a week, at least 30 minutes, and i've been doing that for 3 weeks. another pound would be nice... another half pound would be nice! anything... So i've gone from 215.5 to 214.5 to 217.5!
My naturopathic doc had me on thyroid medicine, an herbal blend called Fat Smasher, and female hormones. I am out of my thyroid meds. I am in a new country and place, so i haven't found a new doctor yet. So I can blame that all I want I guess. I know I am eating fairly well, tracking things, working out like I want to be.. I hate being sedentary. Oddly living in the country has kept me a little sedentary. There's woods to explore I guess, but it's full of stinging nettles and horse poo. I have walked around a couple of the towns around here. Had a nice walk and counted for the activity. That was actually quite fun, as I found the library and a few other things my husband didn't even know about.
So I am just frustrated with my lack of weight loss. Especially when I"m working out. I wasn't working out before I moved, except for moving boxes and cleaning. I've been exceeding my weekly minutes on my Spark people goals. So I don't know if there really is something medically wrong with me or my body just refuses to lose weight. I know my hubby thinks i'm sexy as I am, but I would really like to get rid of the extra curves and just flat out feel better... and walk better and stuff...
sorry for the rant... I really am just frustrated with myself. Thanks

ONe more thought for the night! I've been so in love with Pita bread the past few days. I made this delicious "calzone" sorta thing with my pita bread. I stuffed it with a couple slices of pepperoni, then onion, italian herbed diced tomatoes, spinach and cheese!!! Baked them all together in the oven for about 15 minutes, and YUMM-OOO! (thank you racheal Ray!) Totally yummy! I HIGHLY recommend it! PLUS i used pita with left over hamburgers I made for dinner... that was good too. Stuck low-fat cheese inside, with ketchup, spinach and sliced tomatoes. mmmm.
