I'm not losing, so I am definitely not delighted. However, I know that as my activity levels go up with improved healing, I will lose.

Didn't "delight" myself this week. I only lost .1 of a pound. Going for more this week.

Lost six lbs since my last post. Finally! Whew, I knew something was up. Going on a walk today and I'm feeling good. But I don't walk everyday. Can't. Have to respect my body and it's limits.

The pounds are sliding off...

I think from time to time we all make the mistake of thinking that pounds are the only way to measure progress. I have a friend who is 5'5" or so, and weighs 165 pounds, which on most "medical/insurance" charts, puts her in the overweight or obese category--and she wears a size 4. Yep, F.O.U.R.

4.

I wish! LOL No, actually, I don't. With my build, I look anorexic in a size 8! LOL

Besides, with the fibro, there's no way I could do what she does... I do weight training, but SHE was a state weight-lifting champion in high school, and takes great care of herself, still works out-- and looks terrific!...

...but then MUSCLE WEIGHS MORE PER SQUARE INCH THAN FAT!

Since I have a medical condition that means I can gain and lose as much as 10 pounds of water in a single day... My scale is important for other reasons, obviously! LOL But though my ankles may swell up, it's rare that the water gain makes my waist or hips get bigger, so I find a tape measure much more reassuring than my scale some days! LOL

... so don't let the scale's movement--or lack thereof-- fool you. It's important, yes, but it isn't everything!

You are doing emoticon Accept it! LOL

Went in the wrong direction. Gained 5. But my clothes are falling off so I don't know about what's happening. I assume it's good. My pants are falling down. I just want the lbs to go down.

As of yesterday I was down 2 pounds, and am working daily to relax and live a gentler life. I have gotten my Blood Pressure down a bit, two weeks ago it was 164/104, last week it was 144/99, and today it is 138/98 so I am happy to see my Blood Pressure coming down.

Blessings and Peace,
Candi

Congratulations, Kathy! A loss is a loss is a loss. No matter how it happened.

I'm going the wrong way. I gained a pound this week. It's because I'm not exercising. Maybe while I'm away I do better. I leave for Arkansas Tuesday. I'll be away for two weeks visiting my daughter.

Kathy,
What I did was weigh myself yesterday (Sunday). On Saturday I'll weigh myself again and hope to have lost 1/2 pound by then.

If you go up and down that much in a day, I'm not sure if you can do this. But we'll count you in anyway as long as you're trying - within your own parameters.

For the week beginning today Sunday, April 22 and ending Saturday, April 28th, who's going to lose at least 1/2 pound?

Tell us if you're going to join this "de-light-ful" challenge; then at the end of the week, tell us if you succeeded losing at least 1/2 pound.
