Ok, so obviously this has been a rough week, with my grandfather passing and watching my dad trying to remain stoic through all of the little things that must be taken care of. Seeing my dad hurting has taken more of a toll on me than the passing of my grandfather.
But let's not get sidetracked here, this place is about the numbers and the numbers this week weren't too good (not too bad either, all things considered).
Weight : 253.5
Gain : .4
Total : 63.7
So, a little backsliding for me this week. But I will not punish myself for losing focus, nor will I let myself make a plethora of excuses. Last week was just what it was, a bad week for me personally on more than just the "diet" front.
With that being said, I will try harder this week, I will put forth more effort into achieving a loss this week. Although I should be pretty busy for a while, I am going to make time and do this.
Other things to do this week: I am one of 3 judges for a scholarship competition and have to go through several student packages and score them; Also need to start my classes which opened on the 1st - Strategy, change and organizational behavior concepts and Quality, operations and decision science concepts- 15 units in those 2 classes and I WILL be done with them before the end of January! That is my own little personal education challenge :)
That's all I have for now, everybody take care of yourselves.

Okay, so I'm getting back on track now. Still not at 100%. but doing better. I got back on the treadmill 3 times this week and luckily the tendon pain in the arch of my left foot is almost completely gone. Although ... I now have a small calcium deposit on the ball of my right foot, feels like stepping on a marble. I have had this condition come and go for the last 6 or so years so I will just deal with it until it goes away again.
Anyway, I got on the treadmill and did my walking. Felt good to be moving but damnit, I used to be able to run!! Oh well, maybe again someday.
On to the numbers, nothing great, but at least I didn't gain this week!!
Weight : 255.0
Lost : 1.5
Total : 62.2
Not my best week, but really good compared to last week. Now I wonder how this week is going to turn out with Thanksgiving coming up. Time will tell I suppose.

I would like to make a more appropriate title to this weeks weigh in:
Wk 31 Weigh In, or how to not succeed in losing weight
There are 3 easy steps to successfully not losing weight;
1) snack too much during the week.
too much snacking is an easy way to undermine your weight loss efforts
2) stay seated for most of the day, everyday
Not moving around helps you to hold onto those calories you earned through the snacking
3) keep yourself unmotivated
if you stay unmotivated you will not feel the urge to go for a walk, a jog, a bike ride or lift weights or just generally keep busy during the day.
If you, like me, can follow these 3 easy steps, I guarantee you will be able to halt your weight loss efforts in just one week!
And if you act now, I will throw in the expert tips for really screwing up your weight loss. Tips like:
Drink this sugary drink
Peanuts are healthy, right?
Enough infomercial, let's look at the numbers.
Weight : 256.5
Total : 60.7
So this week I went backwards a bit. I guess losing the last 2 lbs was so enjoyable that my body has decided to lose them again. Oh well, it's not the end of the world. In the past 31 weeks I have had 2 weigh ins that were up for a total of 2.8 lbs. That's not so bad when I look from the perspective of not losing any weight for so many years.
I am just going to look at this week as a kind of 'reset' for my body. I didn't do all of the things that I KNOW I should have done, and I plan to rectify that next week.
No pity party here, I just need to kick myself in the shorts and do what needs to be done.
Happy Veteran's Day to all of our vets, thank God for their sacrifices.
