Very little loss (0.4) but I should have my periods anytime now, so I suspect an actual bigger loss than that! Still glad that I'm loosing and not gaining :)

On my new scale, I'm weighing in at 134. Don't know what went wrong really... I did my best exercising this week with cardio and weight training and still...nothing. I actually ate well too and drank a lot more water than usual (I am VERY thirsty nowadays) Although, I may be adjusting to a new scale. shrug.gif

 

On a side note, DBF suspects that I am pregnant. I have missed a period...just don't want to buy a hpt to see the results yet.

Wow!  Way to go ladies!

 

I squeaked by with a .5 # loss, so today it's 152.5.  It's still a loss, I'm not complaining.

 

OK, I'm complaining!  It's also the first week that takes me off track from my goal--getting to the bottom side of 150.  I know what I'm doing-- the snacking is creeping back in, I bought whole fat yogurt thinking it would be more satiating, but it seems to make me more hungry, and yesterday I had some heavy gardening work and came home ravenous and snarfed a huge meal--then topped it off with homemade biscuits and 2 popsicles.  Oh, and some lemonade.  So, I should be thankful for .5#, but I'm going to pout instead...

So I'm out of town for a family emergency (my grandma went into the hospital and was told she had 2 hours to live..it's been 2 days and she's still kickin' so we don't know). Can I possibly weigh in tomorrow instead?

I lost an inch off my hips too... I feel more lift in my gluteus maximus area. My weigh in doesn't prove it (although muscle weighs more so shrug.gif) lol.

I get frustrated because I have already lost these 10# before (as if they were the same 10, but they might as well be!)  So, instead of the 65# I needed to lose from my top weight, it's 75 and that is a blow.  I must stop looking at the big picture, it can be dizzying!

I'm at 164.5. yay slowly but surely the pounds are coming off. I haven't been this weigh in years even though I still have a ways to go until I hit my goal weight which is 150... I set it at 150 pounds because I never thought I would even get close to 150 being that I weighed 209. Now that I see results I don't think I would stop at 150.. My weight loss/ healthy eating habits and lifestyle  have changed my whole life from my Job to my attitude to my out look on life.. I would always hear that saying "If I can do it anybody can do it" and I would think ya right not me and now I have proven myself wrong..  I know now that if I can do it anyone else can do it to.. Enjoy your week ladies. I wish u all success this week..

152.6. I realize that is still above my initial starting weight, but at least it's a decline from the past few weeks. I've been feeling pretty discouraged.

This week has been a stressful week. A very late start of my period and then stuff at home happens that causes me to think that we should just move away from here and never come back....we live with FIL and is a hoarder, but thinks I don't do anything around the house even though I do clean the house but within limits so it doesn't make him angry... make sense huh? I can't make this house look like like a Martha Stewart magazine if it already was a disaster since I moved here. But boy, does he make me feel awful...He thinks I just sit on the couch, watch soap operas and eat bonbons all day...crap.gif DBF reassured me that I am can only do my best around here and have been doing a good job so he's not sure what he is complaining about.... *sigh* ...just two years left until I finish my degree and can move out. greensad.gif  It's so far away....

 

WOW, sorry about the vent. lol. Besides that though, I have been exercising and eating well. My weigh in today is 133.4.

This week was so rotten, I'll take it!  Now, how to get myself back on track?  I've had 3 different well-intentioned days to reboot my eating habits, and both have failed miserably.  Try again today?
