Move scale, move!

Well, it's taken me awhile, but I finally feel like I'm getting back on track. This week has been good...walking every day, drinking my water and even (attempting) a weight/toner DVD. But the scale isn't moving much and I'm trying to remind myself that it's okay, it will move eventually. I'm starting to lose my patience with that dang scale so someone remind me getting back on track WILL show on the scale, eventually.

Week 17, off the wagon completely

I've succeeded in falling back into my bad habits completely. Haven't exercised in days. Eating crap, crap and more crap. Not drinking enough water, heck hardly drinking any water at all. It's been about 2 weeks now that I've been resorting to my old habits, but I'm ready for it to STOP. I feel disgusting, sluggish, bloated and fat. My mood is terrible. I'm not sleeping well.

This started with Jenna's birthday weekend. I let myself go a little out of control, but then I didn't reign it in when Jason and I went away for a few days. And while we were away for those few days, we decided to really start trying to move back to the DFW area, which means finding a house and a job. While we wait for Jason to find out about a job, I can start working full time. And we found a house we loved, but now I'm still waiting to hear about a job. And it's SO stressful. And that's why I haven't even tried to be healthy. It's just easier not to.

But I'm tired of it. I'm ready to get back on track. I need to. I want to. These next 6 weeks are still going to be stressful, but I'm hoping and praying it doesn't get the best of me. I was off to a great start. I don't want this to be just another time where I lost some weight, hit a rough patch and then gained it back.

But I'm scared that it's going to be that. I hope I have enough strength to get through it.

Week 16 weigh in: Um, oops.

So I knew this week would be bad, with Jenna's birthday and then going away with Jason. I did well the first part of the week, but when Jason and I went away, all my good plans went to hell. I did weigh myself this morning, but I'm not posting it. I gained quite a bit, but I know most of it is due to the sodium content/water retention of all the eating out we did.

I'll weigh again next Sunday, as usual, and count it no matter what, even if it's still showing a gain. Time to get back on track now.

Week 15 weigh in: weighing early

I have been weighing myself on Sundays, but this week I decided to weigh myself Friday. This weekend is going to be busy with my parents arriving today, Jenna's birthday tomorrow and her party Sunday. I know in those couple days we'll be going out to eat a couple of times, and that's why I wanted to weigh today. I'm not worried about my food choices, because I still plan on eating well, but the sodium amount in restaurant prepared foods is SO high. And I know that will cause me to retain water, so I'm "cheating" and weighing early!

And this week was good! I lost 2.2 pounds, up to 34 pounds total.

This next week is going to be tough...besides the activity this weekend, Jason and I are going away for our anniversary next week. Again, more eating out. But I'm determined not to go crazy and stuff my face, and I'm going to keep exercising every day. Even so, I'm not going to be surprised if I don't lose next week. This week I'm just going to concentrate on making good choices, and I'm not going to rely too much on what the scale says. That's the plan!
