The weigh in went better than I had thought, down 4lbs since I was there last 2 weeks ago, so, my scale matches theirs, I can no longer get mad at the scale.
I am so so tired, I had planned to go do some shopping afterwards, but it was raining hard and who wants to be out trekking back and forth between the car and the stores in the rain...not this girl, since it was raining the day I hurt my knee, I have this overwhelming fear of falling on a slickened sidewalk.
So, I have been up since 4am, and I am pretty much too pooped to do anything, but, relax the rest of the day and hope I feel well enough and the weather is nice enough to get in an extra long walk tomorrow.

First, thanks to all who responded to my rant filled last blog.....I didnt throw my scale to the bottom of the river or throw it from a moving car, YET..... but as soon as I find a new one I probably will, I am thinking of attaching it to some large skyrockets and sending it into orbit.....now to the other bit of aggravation I have been experiencing on a regular basis......Spark people insists on challenging me it seems almost every day, by changing my nutritional values.
I have blogged about this, and asked about this before, oh well, I dont know why they do it, I havent changed my weight or my goals.
I have learned not to weigh in on, cause that seems to change it too. I havent changed my weight or changed my ticker in ages, cause if I do, I then have to go and change my food and my fitness, of course it has become tedious and I am considering skipping this part of sp altogther if something doesnt change, or well, uh, remain the same I should say.
I hate that they change this on me it seems at least three times a week. I have to go in and manually enter each exercise now as well.
When did they change all this?
Well, I took some advice and havent gotten on the scale today, and let me just ask this, if its true that our weight can flucuate by as much as 3 lbs a day, then how the hell do you know when you've really lost weight?
I guess if you've lost 30 lbs then you can safely say the scale isnt wrong....but other than that I cant be sure.
I mean, you might weigh yourself after 7 days to find you have lost 3 lbs, but have you really?
I did pretty good today, with the exception of one too many weight watcher cupcakes, and the fact I skipped my long walk in exchange for weight workout here at home.
At least I did something.

I am so mad tonight I cant see straight!! I knew I shouldnt have done it, I told myself, dont get on that stupid scale, but I did anyway!!
Someone tell me how is it even humanely possible to lose and gain 2 lbs in one day????
According to my scale I have, got on it this morning, was very pleased to see that it was down 2 lbs over the last couple of days, and tonight, after a long long walk, a very good hard workout today and no more calories than usual, my scale says "oh, we was kidding ya this morning"!!!
I hate that mfer so much!!! I dont know what else to do, I literally just give up, I am sick of counting every damn bite and every calorie and scanning the menu or the food labels to try to make sure its not too much fat or calories or carbs or sugar, and walking, and lifting weights, riding the bike, all of it....and for what?
To just have my scale screw with my mind.
I cant get past it, and I am fed up, its probably a good thing I dont have tons of junk food in the house right now.....I am not even gonna ask what I can do, or not do, cause I have been doing this same damn crap for so long its not even funny and I cant even keep 2 lousy pounds off.
Tomorrow this scale is meeting the side of a tree!!!

I think I finally figured out why my calorie range keeps changing on SP, I had re-set my goal, to a short term goal, to lose 8 lbs in 4 weeks, til my next docs appt. And, I guess each time I reset that goal, it changed my calories, I knew 2200 seemed a little high.
I have to keep going daily to check how many calories it says I am allowed, before I track my food, to be sure I am getting the right amts.
It is becoming somewhat annoying.
Maybe I will get it all straightend out soon.
So, Friday as I had posted, I went to the annual Hillbilly Days festival, and walked and had a good time, stayed away from the good food booths, except for the one indulgence of a root beer float, which was more float than root beer, but its all good.
It was hotter than blue blazes, and I got a pretty good little sunburn, and Saturday was rainy, well, yesterday, someone turned the lights and the heat off!!
It was colder than a well diggers patooty!
I had a sweater on all day and fuzzy socks. This morning it was so cold, I had set my alarm for 8 am, so I could get up early enough to try to do something with my wild wild hair, but it was so warm and toasty under the blankets, I turned the alarm off and fell back to sleep, giving me very little time to scramble and get ready to be at my 11 am apt.
Well, all went well, I made it to the appt on time, it was with the dietician, although I became a little frustrated when she began asking me when I was going to arrange to have my medical records from the other doctors office sent....?
Well, I had to inform her that I had brought all that I had with me in person back in March, and I had assumed that they had gone thru it all and had it all sorted.
I had put everything in order, and stapled the test results with the docs they went with etc, etc etc.
Well, she said the coordinator must still have it all on her desk, and she would search thru it soon.
Blah!!! That was really the only bad part of the visit, I had only lost 1.5 lbs but, hey a loss is a loss is a loss, well, I just wish it had been more, and am bound and determined that when I go back on May 16th, it will be better.
And then I went and got myself a cup of coffee, bypassing all the goodie fast food places and coming home, to find that my wonderful son, had made me a delicious roast with veggies.
I love my son.
Single ladies, between the ages of 21 and 30, you dont know what you are missing, a hard working, non drinking, non drug using young man, who is hell in the kitchen, and yes, hes straight!!!
Hope everyone had a great day.

i love the people in my life, for the most part, i do however, and i know this is my own fault mostly, dislike their eating habits and the fact that, i have to work so hard to stick to a plan with so much temptation around.
but, i know that is my lot in life and i have to make my own choices and do what i have to do
i sometimes just wish, i could just go away, alone, do you ever feel that way????
just go to some mountain cabin, or house by the sea, alone, just sit and reflect on life and enjoy some alone time....
no phones or neighbors or hubbies or kids or computers
just me, and nature and maybe a good book....
oh well, back to folding laundry
