Well, I got on the scales this morning. Apprehensively, of course. I LOST 6 POUNDS since the last time I weighed! I was (and still am) so totally psyched. I wanted to whoop and holler, but didn't think my family would appreciate the 5 am wake up... Read more
Everything is going great. Still have yet to get back on the scale. I am apprehensive, of course, but I have seen more results from the measuring tape, so I am not going to focus on the scale!
Busy day today. And first basketball game for m... Read more
Feeling Good Again!
I didn't like myself much over Thanksgiving. My kids and husband tried to help, but I resented it a bit. Especially when my husband asked me if I had tracked the chips I ate while he gorged himself.... (I have read on here that men think their e... Read more
I got a HRM
Well, I got a heart rate monitor. It actually said I was burning more calories than my treadmill. While not an expensive monitor, I did have to enter my sex, weight, height, age. I read that the monitors are more accurate than the exercise machi... Read more
I am back.
Well, it is so good to be back home. I enjoyed my time with my family, but "there's no place like home."
Did I do as well as I had hoped? No. Am I discouraged? No. Do I forgive myself for eating Ro-Tel dip and move on because today is a new... Read more
The Challenge Ahead.
The next couple of days will be a challenge for me, just like so many people on this site. I am focusing on portion control, and staying away from the high fat foods, like the Ro-Tel dip my mom always makes. I could eat my weight in that stuff. ... Read more
Better Day Today!
I am taking everyone's advise to heart and stepping away from the scale. I am still logging my food and exercise. Nothing else about my journey is gonna change. In two weeks (if I can be that strong) I will step back on the scale. It was getting... Read more
For a week I have been battling this up a pound, down a pound, up a pound, etc. I was hoping that by today, my body would have figured out that I want the scale to go down! I am so glad that I took the body measurements. At least I can see that ... Read more
Church this morning, then lunch. My husband wants to work on the landscaping around the pool, so that is what we will do. Then cut a load of firewood. We are so far behind!
It does feel good to not be worn out by the slightest activity. I s... Read more
Well, I am now back to my weight that I was on Monday. Wow, thought it would never happen. So much for the 2 pounds a week streak. I was hoping for 10 pounds a month, but I will be okay if it is a bit slower than that. As long as I am making pro... Read more
Well, instead of staying the same, I finally lost half the pound that I have gained. I did take some measurements, and I have lost 4 inches, so as long as I have a loss in some area, I am ok. I would just like to see that scale move a bit faster... Read more
No loss again this morning. I was just sure there would be. My scale measures in 1/2 pounds, and it flickered between 211 and 210.5, deciding 211 was more it's style. I am going to weigh again in the morning. Cait told me I should stop weighing ... Read more
What the Heck?
I was so good yesterday, but added yet another 1/2 pound this morning. I am not entering daily gains, only losses. Come tomorrow I will post my weight no matter what, as it will have been a another week on SP, and you are supposed to weigh once ... Read more
I am still truckin' on with this weight loss. I did have a smaller portion of the traditional meal served last night. Lots of sodium. I gained half a pound, but I know it was the salt. I did my best to estimate my intake, and I was still under f... Read more
Today will be a true test!
Well, today is the annual PTO Harvest Dinner at my kid's school. We feed about 400 people, and it is the only fundraiser we do. I baked 4 double batches of cornbread, a 22 pound turkey, 2 cakes, and 2 batches of cookies. All with no cheating. No... Read more
