Stayed the same, once again

Friday, July 31, 2009

I was 173 again. When am I every going to be 163. I haven't been in the 160's since June and I am really getting discouraged.
I am really watching and measuring. Something has to go.
What, does anybody have any ideas of what they do to start losing again?

    Its also possible you aren't eating enough or are exercising too much. It is all about balance. Keep trying!

    Keep trying. This is a hard road to travel. Keep to your plan and you will make it. I have to tell myself that everyday.

    Peggy, are you mixing your food up? Do you eat the same thing everyday? Sometimes that helps.

hugs to you! don't give up!

Still Tracking

Thursday, July 30, 2009

I am enjoying writing down the reasons why I am eating what I am eating. This morning while my oatmeal was cooking, I opened the jar of peanut butter to add a Tablespoon to the oatmeal when I ran my finger around the top edge and ate some right out of the jar.
I adjusted the amount I had been planning to eat to include that automatic eating.
At least I am becoming aware of these extra bites.

    Isn't it amazing how quickly our extra bites add up? Good for you on honestly tracking it! This was a hard thing for me to realize that every taste counts

Here I am once again recommitting to getting away from 169-172

I am writing everything I eat in my book as well as on the food tracker.
I am trying to do my exercises a little differently.
I am getting up and walking around more. I try to take more steps to do the same job.

    Way to go. It works for me when I do it. My goal is to track what I eat and exercise. Keep up the good work. emoticon

    You can do it Peggy! Sometimes it takes a "starting over" decision to make the changes we need! I have to do that every so often! Just keep at it!

Will you still love me when I'm 64

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I turned 64 today and I feel great! So far I have lost 37 pounds and even though I have been at a plateau for months, I know that the weight is going to start going down again. I have been gaining and losing the same 2 pounds for a long time. I am getting more and more active and doing strength training and I am really enjoyng it. I have been walking with my husband 5 days a week for 25-30 minutes for over a year now.
I belong to a womans club and people keep asking me all the time if I am losing more weight. I think my shape is shifting. That is a good thing.
Happy Birthday to me. I am really enjoying this birthday.
Thanks Spark People!

    Good for you! You are doing great with your journey to better health. I found a bear with the song "Will you still love me?" Having a positive attitude always helps and the support of the family and friends.

I am just going to pick up my daughter Jenn at the airport and she is visiting with us in Florida until we all drive up to NY at the end of May.
While she is here, I want to work harder on my exercise and writing (in my notebook) every morsel that passes my lips.
When I use my food tracker, I usually put in chicken and don't inlude the bread crumbs that are on the chicken. Maybe it is all of these little things that I am leaving off that is really making my calories a lot higher than I think.
I want to be 164 by June 1st. I have been writing this # down for a long time (along with 159).
I want to get off this plateau and get to a lower one.

    Enjoy your visit with Jenn, Peggy! What a wonderful time for both of you. I think plateaus are the bane of all of us engaged in this struggle with weight loss! Tracking what I eat - logging everything, even sugar-free gum - is really helping me. My losses are better when I do that. Since I'm limited in how much exercise I can do, that's important for me. You must enjoy your travels back and forth - sounds like so much fun! - Sara emoticon

    That's a good idea - as they say - every lil bit counts. Enjoy your visit with your daughter and good luck with your journey.
