We've watched the scale go up together, wanna watch it go down? - Page 10

post #181 of 218

I thought I posted this here, but I guess it was in the chat thread. Anyway, I got sick and lost 2 lbs. Probably all water! And really nasty. I haven't food logged seriously since, so tomorrow's the day.

I have to weigh myself tomorrow. Since I got sick, I haven't weighed, but I'd been down 2 from the puking, etc. Probably all water.

Ds is up again tonight. He's been waking up & being up for hours in the middle of the night a lot lately. The lack of sleep combined with the little bit of sleep I am getting being broken by nursing is making me want to eat my weight in carbs. I wish I knew how to make this child sleep 'cause I swear this is slowly killing me.

I did part 1 of The 30 Day Shred today. I thought it was not hard, but maybe tomorrow I'll be sore?

post #185 of 218

OM, I was sore for two days after my first time doing the shred.  I was putting on weight while weaning DS and started the shred program - it's a fun and quick workout :).

post #186 of 218

not sore...probably did it wrong because i am NOT in shape! what weight did you use, mythik?

post #187 of 218

yeah I think my 3lbs I "lost" was mostly water or something... I am bouncing around a bunch when I weigh myself. Oh well. I wish this was "effortless" for me but I know well enough that it won't be. I am frustrated! not food logging right now (I decided I will do it first week of each month, as long as I am not gaining weight).


started doing some mini workouts (15 minutes) each night. its all I can do to eke out 15 minutes right now. I hope it makes a difference. I am still walking daily- amounts vary depending on the weather and our schedule, but 1-4 miles a day.

Having a hard time being disciplined. Not gaining but certainly not losing. I keep blaming sleep but... I'm not so sure.

post #189 of 218

I'm about 6 pounds over my pp weight, and it's not budging. Gotta figure out some activities I can do. I walked a lot more while pregnant this summer and fall, with the good weather.

I didn't use weights with the shred, but I gained 8lbs after weaning DS and that was in 2 months!  So I need to be careful when I wean DD in a year :).

I'm hoping to knock down a few more pounds once it's nice enough to walk the kids after work/weekends this Spring...just a few more months!!!  My goal is to get to my PPW with DS by my birthday this summer as I need to renew my drivers license and want the same weight on there - superficial?  Yup.  But I'll be 40yo so I need to do what makes me feel good right? Oy boy.

I just got home from the gym. Awesome session - most are but for some reason I can't get excited/motivated for my workouts right now.

post #192 of 218

Woo-hoo, lifeguard!!! (I will get excited for you.)

 

I am so off the wagon, and I so do not care right now.

Ditto.

 

Wii bowling=my workout.

post #194 of 218

I wish I had a wii. I have been in NH for 4 days with the kids while my DH does his evaluations for work--a twice a year crazy long process. It is below 0 and not okay to take the kids out. So I've done nothing but sit around and eat and read Kate Beaton comics (does laughing count for exercise?) It will be good to get back home.

I am getting over the flu bug and also lost 2lbs this past weekend - not a fun way to lose I can tell you that.  DD was also sick but we are both on the mend.

I was doing so well with Weight Watchers last week.......then the weekend came.....

 

I don't know what my issue is. I want to eat crap all day long. I am so frustrated with myself. I have a good amount of weight to lose, and I don't know why I can't mentally do this.

 

Good news is that dp said he would watch Landon this weekend if I wanted to go to the gym. I should take him up on that offer and get my big butt to the gym. That would be a start.

chelsea - I feel your pain. I get all motivated & then it just goes out the door in an instant. I just cannot seem to maintain it for any decent period of time.

 

Tonight I went to go do some time on the treadmill & discovered the cats have been peeing in this big fish tank thing (empty) in the corner of the room (the previous owners built this in for their pond fish in the winter). It reeeeeks down there. So irritating! Now a project I had hoped to leave for much, much, much longer (disassembling the tank) needs to be done asap. Yeah, I didn't finish my workout, I came upstairs & sulked with a bag of rice crackers.

post #198 of 218

Aw, lifeguard! EW. There is always something!

Chelsea, are you attending meetings? I found I did better when I attended meetings, mostly because of having to get on the scale there though, more than the talks. I met some nice women, too.

I'm "back on the wagon" now. Doing babyfit food logging (which is so annoying, but helps me) and hopefully doing some sort of activity daily.

post #199 of 218
I haven't gone to a meeting since I joined Weight Watchers. I need to start going. Haven't wanted to go since I know I've gained weight since I joined.....

I am working on a plan this weekend and will be full force to finally lose this weight starting Sunday or Monday. Need to go to the grocery store to get some healthy food. I might even go to the gym this weekend, if dp will stay with Landon
