Bad case of the ****-its

Friday, January 25, 2008

I'm just not into it lately. I want to eat warm, rich, creamy, fattening stuff. Cheesy ham chowder, lasagna, macaroni salad, oatmeal cookies... it's been a carb attack! And I'm enjoying it, but not the two-pound weight gain that came with it this week. Time to start browsing the low-fat, nutritious cookbooks I have instead of the "church lady" cookbooks. Time to cut out the comfort food and go for better quality fuel. Time to turn this puppy around before the damage gets any worse!

    Any idea why, Jodie?

Be well, Hadass, afraid to weigh herself these days.

I thought I was doing pretty well this week, but the scales tell a different story. I was up two pounds this week. Wow. Guess its time to start tracking my food again? I'll weigh in tomorrow morning to see if I'm still in the neighborhood or if its water retention due to salt intake I'm not remembering. I'm not noticing my clothes getting tighter again yet...hmm. I'll just have to watch it this weekend. I don't think there is anything going on that would make it more difficult than usual to stay on program.

    You know, 2 pounds is such a small amount, that it doesn't even count. Keep on doing what you're doing and it'll show in the end. You've got the "lifestyle" change so much better than many of us!!!

Holiday weight gain is reversing

Friday, January 11, 2008

I've had a pretty good week. I've been back on track and of the 6 pounds I gained over the holidays, I've lost just over half of them again. I didn't even track my highest weight, but it was just shy of 185. Now I'm back to where I was just before Christmas. The house is fully purged of sweets and we are well-stocked with fruit and veggies again.

I wore my tight pants yesterday and they were not uncomfortable, but I noticed the snugness. That was a good reminder for me. In another couple of weeks I hope to be back into the 170's again.

    Yay Jodie! I'm afraid even to weigh myself, what with stress and lack of sleep and lack of exercise ... although I did make it to the gym today, yay me.

I'll keep hanging out here with you guys and I'm sure to be inspired. At least I have a bottle of water to hand and not a bowl of pretzels!

Be well, Hadass.

    Yay you!! You're doing so well since you're already getting off what you put on over the holidays.

I decided on Jan. 2nd to get back on the horse, so to speak. I'm doing quite well, especially in the housework department. I am exercising a bit every day and am doing more and more each day. Hopefully I'll get good results like you next time I weigh myself!

Excellent rate of gain

Friday, December 21, 2007

If I were a sow at the county fair, I'd have a big ol' blue ribbon hanging from my pen right now, due to my excellent rate of gain this week. We're talkin' three pounds in one week. That's great if you're a sow. Unfortunately, I am not. No blue ribbons for me.

No surprise on the gain. I was surprised how MUCH I had gained. Ah well, I'll join everyone dieting in January. I won't stress too much about it right now. Constant nibbling on sugary and fat-filled treats is bound to do that. I haven't allowed myself to feel hungry in quite a while, so I need to be sure I feel hungry before I eat.

I also didn't weight myself until after I exercised and drank some water this morning. I simply forgot to step on the scales when I first got up. If I remember, I'll try for a first-thing-in-the-morning weigh-in tomorrow morining.

    I'm with you, Jodie ... my turtle is definitely moving backwards this week. And I don't have holiday treats to blame ... *and* I've been going to the gym faithfully this week.

My ever-expanding butt

Monday, December 17, 2007

I was feeling so smug last week. Down half a pound right before Christmas! Whoo-hoo for me!

Over the weekend I was doing heavy-duty Christmas preparations: lots of baking and wrapping and finishing up the shopping. I made four batches of cookies and a batch of Chex Mix this weekend alone! The oven was hardly cooled off before I got it fired up again. I was very productive, but the exercise and meals went by the wayside, as well as some sleep!

This morning I woke up and realized I hadn't worn a pair of pants in my closet for a couple of weeks. So I dug them out and put them on and they were so loose! Then I looked for the tag and sure enough, they were an old pair that is a size too big. NO WONDER they were feeling fine! So then I found the pants that were the right size, supposedly. Phew! My butt got bigger since the last time I wore these! Didn't these used to feel good and not painful? Hmm. Well, they are on now and they are a constant reminder to step away from the Christmas goodies.
