Still here ;-)

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

I figure I need to check in every so often, so my friends know I'm still with it, still counting my calories, exercising, LOSING. Even if the scale is slow on its way to lower numbers, I'm hangin' in, hangin' out, and hangin' quote Tanya Tucker ;-)


Another pound gone for a total of 7!!

Friday, January 26, 2007

It seems when I have a really bad time emotionally with the scale is when I see results. LOL

I was so discouraged last night. I felt like I wasn't seeing any results after the initial loss, and I have been so *good* the last 4 days (except for sodium, but that's a work in progress) -- my calories, fat, protein, etc -- they've all been right in the range, even on the low ends some days. I've gone out and walked every day for 30+ minutes, and not just strolling, but really walking, KWIM? Using my trekking poles to try and get some tone in my arms and back and to speed up calorie burn. I even passed up my very very favorite Wendy's burger on Wednesday, the bacon-mushroom melt. I wanted it very much, but I did NOT get it. I want to be thinner more than I want that burger. I had a sugar and fat free latte from Starbucks. Really, what's the point of that taste-wise? But I made that choice so that it fit into my calories. Water not perfect, but most days I get the majority in. I'm out now, but am going to Costco to replenish today.

Anyway, all that and I was so unhappy. Seemed like the scale was only moving up/staying still. I don't "accept" a weight unless I can reproduce it 2 or 3 times. The other day I was down 2# on one weigh-in, but that was a momentary fluke. This morning however, it was steady. So I took it!

So....7# down since January 2.

7.1 technically, but we'll just say seven for now. LOL

If you know me....

Sunday, January 21, 2007

If we know each other "in real life" or elsewhere online, I hope that you will be as non-judgemental as possible should you look at my ticker and see my weight and how much I have to lose.

If we are friends, there is a reason. You've shown me that I can trust you, that you care, that you are respectful of me. And hopefully that's been a 2-way street and I haven't let you down.

Now that said....even though we are friends and you care about me, I hope that you will not be too horrified by my ticker numbers.

I am ashamed of them. I am horrified by them. I am appalled that I weigh what I do. Lots of people have told me to ignore the numbers, but how can I when it's what so many people pay attention to? When I apply for health insurance, it's those numbers that they put on their charts to see if I qualify. When I go to the doctor, that is why he lectures me. One doctor made me cry a couple of years ago. Another was a total jerk. They always think they're telling me stuff I don't know. What? I'm FAT??!?!? Holy crap, I never would have known if you hadn't brought that up! Thank you!

Yeah right.

So this is a post to say if you think bad things about the numbers you see, please don't let me know. Support me, give me a kind word, give me a kick in the pants when I need it. But please don't hurt me.

Still hanging in there

Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Just a note to say I am still with SP. I had some hang ups as far as expecting bigger losses....I think sodium was an issue for me, so I am trying to reduce that.


I'm back!

My my my, it has been awhile, eh?

Well, I've decided I've had enough of being fat. I've gained weight and it needs to stop NOW. I'm at an all time high, or close to it.

I'm losing it this time. I am going to stick with SOME type of plan and LOSE THIS FAT.
