4/10/11, 4/17/11 & 4/24/11

I've been really bad about getting my blog updated lately... I sit down to write but then for some reason, it seems overwhelming to write anything! So, the last three weeks have been ok. 4/12 I had lost 2.6 lbs, 4/17 I lost 1.2 lbs and 4/24 I stayed the same. I am STILL struggling with working out. Everyday I manage to talk myself out of it and tell myself that I will do it the next day...and the next...and the next. I am also struggling with "letting" myself have days off where I don't track my food. I know that this is a dangerous trend and I have to put a stop to it! I don't want to undo all the good I've done so far and I want to keep on my downward trend (even if it is slooooow). So, again I say..."It's a journey, not a race"... and keep moving forward!

A gain, again...another .6 lb. I'm trying SO hard not to feel defeated and to realize that some weeks are going to be like this. I also have to balance being ok with it and not beating myself up over it. I can't blame anything other than my own self. Ate out twice again this week, no exercise, etc... This week WILL be better!!! It's a journey, not a race... (I'd just like to arrive at my destination before I'm like 70!)


So, I'm really behind on writing this post. I'm feeling really frustrated with myself for gaining this week. It's "only" .6 lb, but, it's a gain. I had a bad week eating things that I probably (definately) shouldn't. We ate out twice and I couldn't stay out of the chocolate chips, plus still no exercise happening added up (literally). Onward on the journey...

Well, it's been a good week weight-wise. I lost 3.2 lbs this week which made me pretty happy! Still waiting on the working out, the coughing just won't stop. I really wish I could just get over this already so I can get on with getting back into some sort of workout routine. WW is still going really well. It really doesn't seem like too big of a deal, I just have to think more about what I choose to eat (which is a good thing anyway). So, we'll see what this next week brings!

Wow, what a week this has been! First off, I'm sick again (or still, whatever). Tues, Wed, and Thurs I coughed so much and so hard I thought I almost wished to die. Friday I went to the doctor and was told that, of course, it's viral and there is nothing to be done. The doctor said that I probably caught this round while I was still recovering from the last... awesome... I did have a really good week on the diet side. WW is still going really well and this week I lost 2.8 lbs! Probably all the coughing counted as "working out". So, that part of the week made me pretty happy! I'm now down 10.8 lbs and trying not to look too far forward.'s a journey, not a race...

2/6/11 is it March already??? I have been doing WW for 6 weeks now and really the time has gone by so fast and really, it's been pretty easy. Sure I would like to have lost more than the 8 lbs I've lost so far but, it's 8 pounds less than I would be if I hadn't started and really, isn't that the point? This week I lost .4 lbs. The .4 lbs that I gained last week. Also, this week was shortened by 2 days so I actually lost it in 5 days instead of 7. I decided to do my weigh-ins on Friday morning instead of Sunday. Our family eats out on Friday night and I found myself up a little on Saturday morning and it was causing me too much stress and frustration. I want to enjoy being Friday nights with my family, not stress about them! So, well see how that goes this next week. Oh, and big surprise...I didn't work out this week...

So, I gained this week. I kind of freaked out about it a little but then I got a message from WW telling me that a gain on occasion is normal. I only gained .4 lbs so I'm keeping that in perspective. It's so frustrating to gain when I feel like I have to fight for every ounce of weight loss. I didn't work out AGAIN this week. I've got to get up earlier or something...and find a way to get my head on straight about it. I will choose to look forward and not back because it's a journey, not a race!
