I'm veering off from MIL talk today to publically announce that I am already frustrated that I'm not losing weight. This week I was sick and so, I ate soup for many lunches and I tried to keep my portions in control and make wise choices when we ate out. Yesterday, I added the Lose It App to my smartphone and I tracked all my food. I came up with about 1600 calories for the day. I had cereal for breakfast, a small portion of thai food for lunch, and a roast chicken salad at Ruby Tuesdays for dinner. I got up this morning and gained 2 pounds.
This is the frustrating part of weight loss for me. I seem to maintain and maintain. Whatever I eat, even if it is a healthy choice, puts weight on me. Eventually I give up and give in.
This morning is boot camp at Gold's gym and I am going to go even though I would rather stay home and sew. Last night I was up at 3:00 a.m. with a cough resembling an adult asthma attack. The doctor I saw on Thursday described it as bronchial asthma so now I'm wondering if I have developed this in my old age.
Hubby let me sleep until about 9 a.m. which was good because it took me a while to go back to sleep after my coughing attack. I have a good friend who had a heart cath this week to discover that she doesn't have a heart problem. They had scared her into thinking she had serious issues and now they have put her on a mediterranean diet. I said I would go on it with her and together, we would lose. I bet she drops pounds like crazy and mine will cling and cling. If you have been a friend of mine for many years here on Spark, you will have been through this with me before. I don't want my biggest loser challenge to go by the wayside so I am going to get on my exercise clothes and make the best of it and hope I don't cough my way through it.
