Seems like only a few days ago since I posted my last blog. Has it really been a week and a half?
Well, I'm still not losing any weight. I haven't given up, but I did take a bit of a TypeA, hyper-control break. Last week I lost one of my two planning periods every single day. I got behind. I did exercise, but only Monday and Thursday. We skiied on Saturday and Sunday (all day) so that wasn't completely a loss exercise-wise. I didn't track from Friday 'til yesterday... today was my first day back. I didn't count a single calorie; I just made good choices. AND - I gave myself a few breaks. I had a beer (just one). I had some m&ms in my trail mix (not a ton). And I bought a bag of chocolate covered gluten-free pretzels BUT I haven't eaten more than 4 in one day (less than 1/2 a serving) and I haven't had them every day. I just chilled out a little bit.
when, out of cuiousity, I stepped on the scale this morning - it's still the same. At least I didn't gain.
Tomorrow I'm not exercising in the morning - I'm hopeful I will when I get home. But, if not, I'm back on the treadmill on Friday. And pushing myself more. It's still really hard for me to believe that the scale hasn't budged when I'm eating less (and taking less total insulin according to my pump: I'm down by about 28% on a daily basis) and exercising. Maybe my thyroid's up? Maybe I just need to jump-start somehow. I've never had a problem losing at the BEGINNING of a weight-loss program. But - I'm going to keep going. Who knows how long it'll take, but I'm eating better, moving more and making good choices for me and my family. I've gotta continue to focus on that.
