Down another pound, and I really don't deserve it

Friday, November 04, 2011

This has been a tough couple weeks. Not only have I not been exercising because of the play, and stressing out about finding a job and what's going to happen if we can't afford the house payment, but I fell down and tweaked my shoulder at a petsitting client's house, and then it was that danged TOM again! So after all that, I go weigh myself, and I'm down a pound! What the heck?!

Well, I'm grateful, but I almost wish I had been up (which is what I was expecting) because then I would be more motivated to get my butt in gear and get back to it. It's ok, I am motivated, and today I am getting back into it with a dog hike this afternoon (even if it rains). I figure that's a good low-stress way to get in some exercise and relax a bit at the same time. Tomorrow I can get back on the treadmill or maybe talk my husband into going and jogging at the track with me.

    It sounds to me that you are making good choices, even when life throws you a bushel basket of lemons. Accept the pound loss and be happy. You really did deserve it.

    The dogs and I had a nice hike this afternoon :) I wish I could attribute the weight loss to worry - I think a 'Worry Away the Weight' program would work for a lot of folks right now!

    Maybe all the worrying burned a bunch of calories?

Seriously though, you totally deserve it. Some week you are going to do everything perfectly nutrition/exercise wise and you won't lose an ounce. Our bodies just work weirdly like that.

I hope you had a nice walk and that your shoulder feels better.

    Ok, so you don't feel you deserve it ... but you do. The scale doesn't lie.

    Its really hard to achieve anything while unemployed. I lost my job doing the Reagan years. I was unemployed for over a year. It took a long time before I felt I recovered financially. Its hard to believe its not your fault. Its not. The world is turned upside down. You seem to find motivating yourself. That's great. Keep up the good work.

    I felt the same way about my pound loss this week. But I made up my mind that I will feel deserving of it next week.

Good job on the weight loss. Despite all, you must be doing some things right.

I hope you have a nice hike and run and I hope your shoulder and the other issues all mend soon!

    Oh no, not you, too!!! Boy, we're a mess this week. At least you're still able to walk with a shoulder injury.

I figured out thanks to the internet that I pulled my hamstring. If it's a Grade 2 injury (which fits the symptoms I have), I would be out for as long as 6 weeks. (sigh...)

I hope your shoulder feels better soon, I hope your TOM symptoms aren't severe and you deserve every pound lost!!

    Great choice to do the dog hike. And great that you "jumped back on the horse" and got moving despite a downer or two. Sounds to me like you're on the track to success.
