Yup...another pound....whoduhthunk?

Monday, March 25, 2013

It's been an up/down week for me. Pulled a back muscle last weekend, strained my back in a different place three days ago, made a scrumptious finger food dinner for my dear friends who are moving away soon. That dinner was a challenge.

Three dozen Samosas
Jalapeno Poppers
Baked Artichoke/Spinach Dip
Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches
Apple Pie
Apple Crisp
Carrot Cake
emoticon

...all of it homade from scratch!!! And NOT low cal by any means.

Sure I cheated....and what with that and very little exercise due to my back I was going to be happy even if the scale showed no loss this week. Just as long as I didn't put on anything.

Well....................................
..well................................
..can you guess what?????????


I LOST A POUND!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

So here I am.... emoticon ...bragging a little.... emoticon emoticon

Have a great week everyone, I'm going to!



(Thanks to everyone who posts on my blog so regularly, even if I don't get back to you all, it is so very much appreciated.) emoticon

Wow, great sounding meal, even if I'm late posting here Lyn. And I'd be tempted too!
How is your back doing now?

    Sometimes changing things up... even with a calorie splurge will trick your body into releasing a little weight. Congrats on the loss!

Monday morning.
My weigh-in time.
Hrumph! emoticon
My first week of no weight loss.
I am not complaining...just hrumph!
I knew this time was coming.
I have done well since restarting SP.
I have tracked and exercised faithfully.
I have lost weight every week since Jan 1.
So I can't be too upset.
The cold weather does not instill in me a desire to eat salads.
And perhaps I ate a few too many carbs.

These words from Pixie-licious's blog helped me today.
"To me, success is not just reaching the goal. I think that success happens with each and every step you make towards the goal!"

So here's to another week of positive thinking, tracking regularly, avoiding temptations, making wise choices.

Have a great week everyone....I intend to.
Hugs and prayers emoticon to those who have tribulation in their lives at present.

    Awesome record to be holding.....keep going. Tweak something if you must to shock that body into its downward spiral once more.

    It is an amazing thing that you have lost every week until now! The scale is only one way your success is reflected and not always the most important one. You are doing great! Stay focused on all the positive results, because you have many!

    I hadn't realized you have lost EVERY week since Jan 1! That is fantastic! Don't fret if you don't lose this week ...or next or whenever. Just don't backslide and don't quit! emoticon

    I try to remember that getting healthy doesn't always show in a number. You are doing great, and it wasn't a gain. Continued good health to all of us.

    Congratulations your success of hanging in there even though the scale didn't give you the desired result today! Keep up the good work....and don't forget to look for some non-scale victories. I bet you have some to celebrate!

A Point to Ponder ~

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

When you're
stressed, you eat
Ice Cream, chocolate
and sweets.
emoticon emoticon emoticon


YOU KNOW WHY???

Because "stressed'
spelled backwards
Is 'Desserts"

Another positive non-scale moment...

Monday, March 11, 2013

As ususal, on Monday mornings I weigh myself. Today's weigh-in says I lost 2 lb. this past week. But I don't feel as tho' I have. I feel fat the last couple days....I'm thinking I'm eating too much bread...again. emoticon

The positive non-scale moment was when, this morning, I put on my jeans which I had just washed a couple days ago...and they felt a little loose....not that anyone would notice, but I could feel the difference. You know...that 'aha' moment of self satisfaction that hits you and disappears too quickly.
Usually for me, when I put on fresh laundered jeans, they have shrunk to their proper size and I would squeeze my butt and belly in as best I could and then struggle to get the zipper up.

Not this time. It was a private satisfying moment. No struggling to button them or zip them...just smooth and easy. emoticon
And to boot, these are the jeans that I just got into a couple weeks ago for the first time in forever it seems.

Let's do it this week...let's all shed a pound or two.... emoticon

    What a great feeling to wear loose jeans straight out the laundry. Well done. My friend cannot eat bread either because it causes her a bloated tummy.
