When does a plateau stop being a plateau?????
I have not lost a single pound in over a year.
While I have gained, and lost and gained and lost the same several pounds many times over.
I have NOT lost beyond the number I was at in January 2013.
It is very disturbing and puzzling.
Most weeks, I work hard, not as hard as I could or should.
But yes, most of the time I am still in this mind frame.
Yet I never do.
I have decided to do the whole blood work up, vitamin levels, hormone and thyroid levels, A1C.
And yes, as much as I dread it and have postponed it, I have an appointment with the gynecologist next week.
Time to get all these hormones checked and see if that might play a role in this nonsense.
My friend went to a place where they do bio-identical hormone testing and put her on the hormones she was lacking in, and vitamin b12 shots and shes lost about 15 pounds.
I doubt that I will go there, as it isnt covered by my insurance and I do not need the added expense, but if my doctor can help me identify issues, hormonal or whatever that might be causing this lack of weight loss, then I am willing to give it a shot.
For my own contribution, I am going to the walking track.
Sun is coming over the mountain and hopefully it is bringing a little warmth.
Gonna get my walk on and soak up some vitamin D.
Have a nice day to all.

Had to cut my walk short this evening and it really bothered me because I drove to the track with this desire to walk a full hour and really sweat it out.
However, the hills are on fire around the park area and the smoke was so thick, my eyes were burning, my throat tightened and I couldnt stand to breathe.
Well, maybe it will be better tomorrow, its supposed to rain tonight and I hope it rains a good one.
I walked 25 minutes, I guess the whole trip wasnt a waste afterall.
I came home and made a lean cuisine panini and I feel stuffed.
Hope that feeling lasts, I cant afford to snack tonight.
gotta get some veggies in the house!!

Cant believe its been a week since I blogged.
I havent been on the scale this week, I skipped it, and that is a mistake. Because I have fallen back into some bad habits this week....not a hard fall, but enough that I know its going to be a bad day when I do get on the scale. There will be no loss and lucky if there is no gain.
I havent gone too far off the rails, but enough, I have eaten way too much bread and a Mr. Goodbar and several slices of pizza. It has been a stressful week, but that isnt really why I have had bad eating habits, really its because I havent been to the big grocery store to do my shopping and have had no real food in the house.
This week, well, I was in the middle of a "half move".
Kind of back and forth, not fully moved, and really dreading the day when I finally have to.
I walked a couple times this week. Am hoping to go today. It is supposed to be hot out and sunshiney and I am going to get out there and soak it up.
Dont have anyone to hide eggs for, or color them, or cook a big meal for as Honey has to work.
Dont know if family has dinner planned, if they do, they didnt invite me lol.
So, after he leaves for work, I am going to go to the park and enjoy the sun and walk and I have some morning glories to put out and do a little yard work and fix myself a nice healthy little dinner, lay in the tanning bed, then watch Game of Thrones tonight,
That is my Easter.
Hope all of you have a lovely day no matter how you spend the day.

I have walked every day for the last.....uh, not sure, but at least 5 out of the last 7 days.
i had a small, BIG BIG victory on the scale this week.
i hope to have another one and then another.
i love the sun we have been getting and hope that its helping my vitamin d to increase.
and ive even been getting little little little bits of de-cluttering done as well.
two jobs i am dreading most--my bedroom walk in, which is basically another name for junk room and i dont store everyday items in there, its been years since ive really gone thru it.
i did get some of my old clothes out and sold them.
but who knows whats in there.
and the walk in in my sons old room, which is basically all old electronics and christmas junk.
i dont plan to take any of this stuff to the new place. so what to do?
would anyone want it???
i didnt think anyone would want my old clothes either but they did and ive sold some old pocketbooks and books as well.
good for the soul.
tonight i am fixing, for the first time, coconut chicken...the recipe i read called for panko and i didnt have any, so i am compromising and making my own breading using ground up whole wheat crackers and mccormicks salad toppings..... and i hope it turns out edible.
its in the 80s here today and i am loving it.

I wasnt sure I should share, for fear of "THE BIG JINX", but today, I got on the scale, to find a whopping 4 lb loss.
I am not sure which one of you snuck into my bathroom and changed my scale, but thanks.
I have been wondering for some time, why oh why my scale wasnt moving downward. Broken maybe?
Because my body is saying, "Hey, look here, your skin is looser here, your skin is looser here, your pants fit better here".
So the numbers werent reflecting that.
So according to my plan to get a pedicure as a reward for a 10 pound weight loss, I am down to just 6 toes left to go.
I wonder how much toes weigh anyway???
Rain on the way here today, I have to give my son a ride to his meeting tonight since his girlfriend has their car, maybe if it isnt pouring rain and not too dark, I might be able to squeeze in a quick walk. I was thinking of doing a power walk inside, we have no mall here so mall walking is out.
I wonder if people would find it funny to see a woman power walking around the grocery store on a Friday evening?
Naw, they would probably just think its a mom on her way home from work running late, grabbing up dinner items.
Speaking of work--I need a job!!!!
Happy Weekend sparkers.
