Bad news...

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

So...I called the Papillion Rec Dept this morning to find out about registration for the Biggest Loser challenge that I was planning on this summer. I found out I was the only one who had inquired about it and no one had registered, so the event had been cancelled. I was really surprised. I was so upset I actually cried. I was really planning on that challenge to shake up my fitness plan for the summer and give me a new kickstart. It was supposed to run from Jun 3 to Aug 9, so most of the summer.
Things have kind of slowed down on my weight loss despite staying on track pretty closely. The doctor is still playing with my thyroid meds and that might have something to do with it, but it doesn't make it any easier to accept. I was ready to put in the hard work this summer despite the thyroid changes.
My daughter asked about my friend at work who had volunteered to work out with me. She found out yesterday that she has to have a fusion in her spine...possibly two. And as soon as possible. That will put her out of commission for a couple of months and then when she can start working out again it will be slowly. It just seems everything is falling apart.
I have stayed on track today even though what I really wanted to do was stuff my face. We are having really bad weather right now with storm warnings, etc., but I managed to get in a 30 minute walk between downpours. So I haven't given up, but I have to say I'm pretty discouraged right now.
I didn't get to weigh in Sunday because I was in Missouri, but out of curiosity I stepped on the scale this morning to see where I was. It said I had gained 5 pounds. What to do?!
I am seeking the Lord for the next step. I can't quit.

Blessings to you one and all
Keep on keepin on

    don't give up-you know that scale plays tricks on us. Sometimes when I think I have been eating too much I lose and vis versa..
    Just keep moving and trying your best- plus who knows what all the meds do to your body. Not that we don't need to take them- I know I have some that make you hold on to weight. Your body may be taking a little break as well- it has to get used to the new normal. Lastly- keep drinking water!!! it does help though I am not sure why.

    Remember we can do this together! emoticon emoticon emoticon
