Another one down, another day gone


Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I am coming up to the December weigh in - I don't know if I will get there this month. I am currently below last month's weight but not quite where I was hoping to be. I am working hard to get under 300 and have been within 10 pounds since September but while I get closer, I seem to be having trouble making that last few pounds. I plateaued for September and October and gained 2 pounds in November. I am walking the walk and not just talking the talk, but it does sometimes get to me. I know the weight will come off - I SEE the weight coming down - BUT then just on the first of the month, it does a little HOP or JUMP and steals the losses of the previous days, weeks, and sometimes even months.

I try NOT to focus on the weight. I try NOT to focus on the scale. BUT I WANT TO SEE A TWO as my first number this time.

Oh, dear, I almost feel like I should delete this whole message. I seem to be whining a bit.

Actually, I had a good day today and the kids were great. I hope the honeymoon after the break lasts a few more days. It wasn't bad yesterday. It was pretty GOOD today. Maybe tomorrow will be GREAT.

    I WENT THROUGH THAT FOR TWO YEARS! THEN MY DR. POINTED OUT THAT I ALWAYS HAVE TO SEE HIM RIGHT AROUND THE FIRST OF THE MONTH AND HE THOUGHT I WAS SELF-SABOTAGING MYSELF. SO I STARTED PAYING ATTENTION TO IT AND HE WAS RIGHT! WHY I WAS DOING IT I HAD NO IDEA. BUT AS SOON AS I BECAME AWARE OF IT, I STOPPED IT AND THE WEIGHT CONTINUED TO DROP - SLOWLY BUT STILL GOING DOWN.

    Hi Nancy, if you consistently make healthy choices and stay within your calorie range and move more it's bound to happen soon for you. . .Losing weight for me is really slow. I think my metabolism has all but died and it's much harder now to lose weight than when I was much younger. I hope tomorrow is a great day at school!

Hugs,

Jill emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You are exactly where I am at. And I don't like it one bit. emoticon I know the scale doesn't account for everything but it would be nice to see it move when I've been doing everything right and expect a weigh loss. I wish you all the success in the world when you do your weigh-in. emoticon
