Week 2 Check In~

Monday, July 08, 2013

I did do a check in last week, I just didn't do a journal because... well, I never got around to it, and then there's been a lot of drama in my personal life that I really don't feel like getting into.

My scale has been on the fritz the last several days- it would error out half the time, and when it didn't the weights were really weird and it took a long time to get one that actually repeated. And yes, I did try changing the batteries, it didn't help. For this morning's weigh in, I finally pulled out a different scale I'd had. It puts me 2.4 pounds heavier than yesterday- I do feel a little bloated today, so I'm not sure how much of the gain is bloated vs. different scale. Eh.

Either way, that still leaves me with a 3.4 pound loss for this week, and it was 3.8 pounds last week, which makes for a total of 7.4 pounds lost and 1.4 BMI points. Yahoo! For the record, current numbers stand at 211.4 pounds with a 42.7 BMI. Definitely on track, weight wise. From previous experience, I tend to lose faster at first and then mostly slow down to a crawl later, so it all kind of evens out in the end. I'm not worried about that. emoticon

Everything else? Eh. I was drinking at least a 16 oz bottle of water a day, but I've slipped on that and have been drinking iced tea, because it's been really hot and gross. I've also not been eating anywhere NEAR what I should be, because of drama and depression and so on. I've said this before, but it bears repeating since it's been a long time- my body reacts to stress in one of two ways, as far as food is concerned. I either binge or starve. Well, not starve exactly, but I pretty much lose my appetite. There's no in-between on those two extremes, though I do sometimes swing from one to the other in the same episode. That's basically what's happening now, with a much heavier emphasis on the no-appetite side.

Goal for this week as far as health-stuff is concerned? I need to take care of myself on at least a basic level. That means trying really hard to get some sleep, even if that means taking some melatonin or something- I've been having a really hard time with insomnia lately and I've been completely losing my mind with the lack of sleep. It hasn't been pretty, especially yesterday. I also need to make sure that I -at least- get 1000 calories a day. Which I know is still less than I need for basic functioning, but I haven't even been managing that lately, so. Definitely needs to be fixed before I get sick. Speaking of... I'm going to have something to eat now. And then going to try for a nap. Until next time! ^_^
