You know that, "Do or do not; there is no try" thing?

Lately trying is the best I can do, I guess.

I just keep telling myself it's better than nothing.

I have to stop depressing myself, but I'm annoyed because I've lost ground again. I gained from my 252 last week back up to 258 (!!!) which I'm sure most of was water weight (you can't actually gain 6 pounds overnight, I DO know this...).

Half of that is gone again, but I'm just. Annoyed. I'm not supposed to be hoping to get BACK to 252. ARGH. I just want to get below it!

I know it's probably mostly mental, too. Getting below 250 feels significant, so I'm making it harder than it needs to be.

If one thing is certain, it's that I need to get my calorie intake under control, STAT.

It was very stable all through October November, December right up until Christmas. It hasn't been stable for more than 2 weeks since then, and my weekly average hasn't been back down to where it was for 3/4 of December since Christmas either.

HMM, I wonder if this has something to do with my weight not moving??? PROBABLY.

I have to go back and see what I was eating in December, because whatever that deal was it was working.

Other than that, we went to the gym on Monday! I was lazy and only did about 20 minutes, but again... better than nothing.

Physical therapy today... apparently my insurance won't pay for any more visits. That's okay though. I'll be glad to have my mornings free again to go to the gym and/or swim as my work schedule allows. It'll be nice to juggle two things (exercise and crazy work schedule) instead of three.

I have other various life stuff I feel like blogging about, but no time. I'll try to be around more soon. Right now just tracking is about all I can handle.

    OH, THANK YOU! I am SO glad I am not the only one who put on a buttload (hehehe) of water weight this last couple of weeks! It has to be that, I don't think its possible to go from 278 to 291 in less than 10 days any other way!?? I am glad to be off the water pills, though. And trying is good enough. Do what we can with what we have and be kind to ourselves. Beating ourselves up over stuff was how we got to where we were. We don't want to go back there. One day, one small step, one glass of water at a time... emoticon emoticon

  • GLITTERFAIRY77 a start. It is "doing"-not trying. You're doing something to keep yourself in check, and that isn't trying. It's being proactive. I'm right there with you with the frustration, though. I thought I would be 265 by now! As for water weight, I've put on 16lbs of water in one day. Awesome, right?
    Don't lose heart. Just keep DOING....even if doing is making better choices.
