A tiny loss - better than nothing

Wednesday, November 07, 2012

I think if it was not for the Fitbit I would have gained this week. I have not been good on the food side of things but have increased my exercise somewhat.

0.75 lb loss - better than nothing for sure and I am not going to complain about any loss that heads my way. I accept the 0.75 lb graciously and say thank you very much indeedy!

Hoping the next week is better. I am struggling to find motivation at this time of year and the darkness is making me tired. Tired really is bad for me - it is what makes me go astray, makes me feel weak and stops me going for that walk I should have gone for!

So focus on sleep and Fitbit and getting back on track this week.

    every ounce lost is one ounce closer to your goals :) You're doing great, even .75 of a pound is awesome :)

    Any drop down is progress & progress leads to goals met!

God bless!

    I am struggling with getting my exercise in with the early darkness too. I like to do the Sparkpeople videos, but I hate fighting my daughter for the computer! If it weren't for the two nights I go to the gym I probably wouldn't get any exercise at all! emoticon

  I have trouble with the early darkness too. I try to find things to occupy my hands long enough to let any 'cravings' pass me by. If I feel tired, I do 3 minutes of Leslie Sansone 'steps' to perk me up. It works for me.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal
