For the record? Number went down at Thursday night's weigh-in. Has each week. Little by little.
I'm basically eating the same as I have been for 4 years, but am now tallying it by points as well as by the SP system that my RD prefers I use to monitor nutrients.
My son had bought me a WiiFit Plus, but as the baby started to crawl they put up a childproof gate across the case containing the equipment...and I can't open it on my own. So I've been unable to do one activity that I truly enjoyed and that made a huge difference.
Have to...repeate HAVE to!...find some activity I can do despite the fms limitations. Exercise is the only way I'll lose the weight. I still have to work to eat enough, so cutting down on food is not a solution. Eating MORE would help.
The scale numbers have been going down steadily albeit slowly for a few months; it's a healthy loss, but my concern is that I need to replace my cardio and toning exercises that I lost when coming here (because I no longer can do pool workouts at the physical therapist's pool...). It's hard to find substitue exercise that is effective due to my fms limitations. If I were still doing pool time, I'm certain I'd be losing at a faster right right now. Everything I'm doing is pretty ontarget except for losing the cardio/toning workouts.
Hmmm Maybe I should return to NY and my pool...
