Wk 161 Weigh In

Saturday, May 10, 2014

Not much to say today. My back has been feeling better (knock on wood) but it has had lots of days of feeling better right before it went out, so I'm not going to celebrate any time soon.

I had a gain this week, of course I pretty much knew would since I posted a loss last week and that's how things have been going for quite some time now. Oh well.

So here's the numbers for the week.

Weight : 225.4
Gain : 0.8
Total : 94.6

It's less than a pound so that's good, but it's still another gain. I suppose I'll lose it this coming week just so I can gain it back the week after... arrgh.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend, however much of it is left.

    Took a break this afternoon from Mom's house. Had to do a lot of yard work at home this morning and tonight going to TRY to plant my garden ... or at least some of it. It is small - but still a chore when the body is broken. BTW, my body feels like it is broken. Then tomorrow it's back to Mom's house for more drudgery.

    Anywho, I have not been on the scale for a while and KNOW that I have gained some weight. Not a lot, mind you, but ...
    Well, truth is, I am so relating to yours and GRANDEFILLE's blogs lately, especially when it comes to the scale. OK, you're still weighing yourself, so kudos to you, but, seriously, Ken, it just seems that we three kindred souls are in the mode of "indifference" - as in, WTH.
    Yeh, I should only speak for myself - (understood) - but finding common ground today does seem comforting in a weird kinda way - Like, it's "grounding" ... especially when everything else in life seems so up in the air.
    LOL, sounds like I applaud your weight gain, which I don't - BUT - I do applaud you always for your honestly. It is a lifeline to the world I hope to return to soon.

    Soooo, it's back to work - and one day soon it's back to work here at SP.

    Hi Ken!

    I've been really busy at work for the past few months, so I'm playing catch-up here on Spark now that I've slowed down a bit! It's good to "see you" again!

    The up-and-down game is so exhausting isn't it? I've been playing it for a long time now too, and I've decided to take the focus off the scale and focus on nutrition and exercise for a couple months and see what happens. I'm only going to weigh in on the first of every month so I can post it to my SparkPage....we'll see how that goes, since I've already cheated and sneaked onto the scale once in May : )

    Great to hear that your back is feeling better - hopefully that keeps getting better and better every day! Just keep taking baby steps!!

    Make it a great week!!

    Hi Ken. I'm sorry to hear you're still having issues with your back, although it sounds like you're finding out what works and what doesn't. As for the up-and-down, I know what it's like to get stuck in that. You know the drill for losing weight, you've done it before, so keep at it, and you WILL see the numbers you're after! emoticon

    happy to hear your back is giving you a little break!

    As for the rest I understand where you're at.... I keep thinking I'll find a way to stop gaining and losing the same damned pounds...! well, I guess I have to keep looking. (I know I just have to eat less... but how?)

    Well, it is still good... You can loose 1 pound next week and that will be a loss all in all! emoticon You are doing good, Ken. Don't get discouraged, and remember to sleep lots! emoticon emoticon

    Hey see-sawing can be fun... at least you know what to expect :) I think it's great that you're staying pretty neutral, as Tina said - maybe this is where the body wants to be. Either way, you're doing great with a body that's making it difficult for you, so be proud of yourself.

    I have my fingers crossed regarding your back!
    About the weight, I know that roller coaster ride well. I agree with 1DERLAND14, you have managed to lose 90 lbs, and keep it off, that is truly amazing! emoticon emoticon

    I am happy to hear that your back is feeling better! Good news!!! I can understand the fight with the scale! Keep pushing in the right direction! You are the guy who has managed to lose over 90lbs and keep that off....the same guy that can get that scale in the other direction! Keep the faith :)

    Is your body telling you that this is where it wants to maintain? I don't know how much more you want to lose, but if you only have a little more to lose, maybe you could consider maintaining where you are. It might take the pressure off. Of course I understand if your looking for a milestone number like 100.

    I am glad to hear your back is better, sorry about the gain, but it isn't quite a pound, so don't feel guilty. You probably haven't been as active either because of your back..But it will improve, and so will your weight loss... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Thanks for sharing!!
