Feeling a little whiney today. My poor friend has been hearing it all morning. Over the weekend I dropped to 297. On Monday I went back up to 299 and have been holding ever since. I had the bad workout on Monday. I have been doing better with my eating this week so far although I went into the upper reaches of the calorie range yesterday. I have cooked a few meals off spark recipes and have not been eating as out this week at all. So I should have been getting food that was better for me.

Basically I think I have finally reached the point where it will become more like work to lose the weight. And I am not a happy camper. I have been losing weight at a pretty rapid clip since I started trying back in early January. I am not thinking I have hit a plateau or anything like that yet. But normally every couple days I see a one or 2 pound drop on the scale. I know I shouldn’t weigh myself everyday or even every couple days, but I do. And now I haven’t seen anything. The last move was in the wrong direction.

So, I am going to try to break the scale habit. Not sure how successful I will be, but I will work on it. I plan to eat more tonight before my workout so hopefully I won’t lose energy like I did Monday and can finish it. And I am not breaking the diet. What I have been doing has been working and I am not at a point where I think I need to change all that much. Yet. But I am trying to keep a close eye on things to make sure I don’t fall off.

I guess I am just feeling some self pity today. Not really feeling all that bad, just feeling a little blah and whiney. Hopefully a good workout tonight will snap me out of it and get me feeling right again. In an effort to remind myself why I am doing this, I went with the size smaller pants today. Not sure I am really into them yet, they seem tight, but it a constant reminder that I need to continue working in the right direction!

    I'm sure your friend doesn't mind!! emoticon Your still under 300 and you should be happy about that and also that you are in a size smaller pants. It happens to all of us. We are losing great and then we hit a wall. We slow down or we stop losing. Just keep pushing and you will reach your goal in no time
