Doing OK

Friday, March 02, 2007

Well, since my last blog I've lost 3 pounds then put it back again but this week I lost 2 and I'm keeping it off.
I feel much more positive after a big work related upheaval in my life and didn't realise how much it had affected me until I suddenly realised how much happier I am now.
My knee is pretty bad at the moment but I've been to hospital again and it's made things easier though I can't do a lot of exercise yet. I am still walking, albeit slowly, so I am exercising it a bit. I still do my upper body workout and some lower, I just miss out the ones I can't manage.
The weather is getting nicer, it's lighter earlier on a morning and as I've now retired I'll have more time to be myself.
I will keep up the momentum, I can feel it...

I need motivation.
I can't seem to keep up the momentum of losing. I start the day fine but by dinnertime my get up and go seems to have got up and gone.
I'm faffing about losing two pounds one week and putting it back the next. I suppose I'm not actually gaining, which is good but I need to be losing week after week.
I've tried the boards and the motivational articles, all well and good until I come to put it in practise and I can't exercise much as my knee is pretty bad at the moment. I'm still walking daily, but I'm slow, and the weather is dull and overcast. Miserable really.
Gawd, I sound so depressed and I'm not. I feel fine. look fine etc. I just don't have the will power to stay on track. I'm not in the mood either.
I've just worked out I still need to lose 141 pounds, which sounds awful but, and it's a BIG but, I have lost 67 which is more than a third.
Today is a new day, maybe it'll be the one to break the mould.
I've also decided to take early retirement, I finish at the end of the month.


Trying hard

Thursday, January 04, 2007

Well, the motivation didn't last long and I couldn't keep up the momentum.
I got weighed again this morning, which I try not to do, instead of waiting until next Monday and I've put on six pounds. I've amended my ticker and possibly by Monday it might come down as I know you can weigh different each day but I don't think the chocolates and biscuits will be wrong. At least I've got it out of my system and tomorrow I'm back at work which will help enormously. I've had a bad knee for a while too which doesn't help as I can't do much exercise, though I did go for a four mile hike with my husband but I don't think it will be enough to counteract the pigout. My knee is a lot better now and at least I've started well today and feel as if I can keep it up.


Happy New Year?

Monday, January 01, 2007

Well alright, we'll forget the question mark and say it will be a Happy New Year.
I'm back up this morning, a gain of 6 pounds which I'm quite surprised about when I consider just what I have eaten. Anyway I'm back on track now and raring to go.
I've been on the boards for motivation and can't wait.


Spark points!

Monday, December 11, 2006

Just got weighed and I've stayed the same but I'm pleased with that as I had a difficult week health wise and to top the lot I've just logged in and been awarded 25 sparkpoints. 25! yes 25.! I sound so stupid but I've never had more than three before. I know they don't mean anything but it's psychological. Well, it's made me feel good.
I seem to be on track for Christmas, the vibes are positive at the moment though there are a couple of work get togethers coming up and they're both buffets. We go straight from work too so I can't eat before hand.
I'll do my best, that's all anyone can do.
