Lesson Learned

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Never have ham for the last two dinners before weigh-in day AND eat a bag of beef jerky the day before. I couldn't believe the scale; and altho I'd like to blame the whole 6 pound gain on water retention, I think I have to take the blame for some of it. I know I was NOT eating properly last week.

Wind has died down, temp has come up and tonight we walked. It's like back to square one. Knees and hips hurt, so just around our block. Within a week, if I keep at it, I should be able to work it back up to 5-6 blocks again. Poor old body!!

    my knees hurt also. i stopped walking taking showers instead of baths not doing laundry.

    until one day it was soooo bad that i had to see a specialist.
    i went to physical therapy. now i am taking baths doing laundry and doing a Y challenge.

    so i have been there. hope this helps.

    I think if you lean towards low sodium food and push your water consumption, most of that weight will dissipate. Also sweat it out know...exercise!

    We all seem to have our stories from lessons learned, at least I hope mine were learned but better to have learned a lesson and have to start over than to quit altogether. emoticon
