What One Thing have I done today to advance my cause?

Recommended Posts

One hour on the bike. Longmire thought it was done. Maybe one episode left. Want to watch Elizabeth next. Love her. I think she's ill and they're not telling the public. Anyway. Cold. Rain. Have to go out. Forage for food. See skin doctor. Sheesh. Hate it.

Welcome Back Zuzuspedals. Weight always seems to be an ongoing problem, doesn't it? Either we are working hard to lose it...or working harder to maintain it! At least we are working at it, right!

 

Tracked and OP for 2 days! Need to still add more steps on my Fitbit!

I finally admitted I cannot do this alone, I would lose then gain it right back. so I went online last week and signed up for a 3 month WW meetings and online program. I faced the music on Tuesday, I have been POP all week, I am loving it. I feel in control, I feel proud of myself, what a relief. I am not going to beat myself for not doing this sooner. I am going to face forward and do this.

Annie that's smart. It's hard to do this alone. I think meetings make a big difference.

Off to my weigh in.

Yay us! Who is tracking. I'm in and off tracking but I usually take poor responsibility for what goes in my mouth when I'm not tracking. It's one of my ANSWERS. I'm on a really special diet. It's hard to get to 30 but just like me my weight isn't plummeting like I might want.

I should add I made a batch of chicken broth in my Instant Pot last night. Another one of my ANSWERS. Soup for a meal or two during the week. Clear veggie soup guarantees me a loss that week.

good morning,

today is day 6 of my WW week, weigh in is Tuesday, I do NOT ever, in my life, recall being so anxious ( in a good way) and excited to get on the scale-at 5:30 at night, in my clothes, by anyone! I have had temptations, but I make myself go through a list: What can I have that is in my allowable points ? If I have to use some of my weekly flexpoints what will satisfy me ? if I am going to go over-what am I going to do to offset the food? a workout ? a WALK? sure lets walk FIRST, guess what , I walk, I no longer want the food that will undo the good I have done. If I want the results to be different, my choices have to be different. Planning and prepping for the week, have made pumpkin bread and cornbread will make my lunch salad soon, will get some exercise in the yard in my snowshoes

I don't know when I have felt so in control, so motivated, and so positive! I am seeing progress on my own scale and I make myself weigh in every morning, just for accountability , official WW weigh in is tomorrow at 530pm, I am going to 'ROCK IT LIKE A HURRICANE!'

I am hoping the weather is good because I would like to stay for the meeting.

MT you will do as well on Wed !

I'm so happy we all seem committed. I feel the same way. New Year does that to a gal.

Yesterday is the first day I managed to get in all 30 points, plus on of the 42 weekly points, and I had some light poporn yesterday, today I was up 1.2 from yesterday at home, but I know I have not gained weight, it is water or all the extra food still in my system, STILL I was disappointed/devastated/ ticked off/. could be just the salt, I weigh in at 5:30 tonight at WW , so I will drink extra extra water and then quit at 2 pm. Even with this being up from yesterday, I am still down 2-4 lbs from last week, so what ever the scale says I will take it, I might not like it, but I will take it and I will continue to work this program no matter what it says.

I did the long wii run this morning, all the way around the island. twice what I usually do and I managed to finish, feeling good about myself, feeling strong and positive inspite of what the scale said.

MT tomorrow is your big day, stay strong

I think you know how hard you worked. Any loss is a plus in my book. All of us.

Walked just between raindrops. Glad to have it done.

Bought this at Target. Squeeze lemon or lime or oranges. Has little half moon silicone ice molds. Freeze. Save for flavoring water. $9.99 Target.

Anne - I am looking forward to getting on the scale tomorrow...but I have felt like this before and was disappointed. I will be happy with any loss...just don't want to gain or stay the same. I bit the bullet last Wednesday only to find I had gained 3 lbs. over the holidays. Now that I am back to OP and tracking I would like to see a loss no matter how small.

Peg - looks interesting. I have been using the little packets of True Lemon and True Orange to flavor my water today. I enjoy flavored water more than plain.

Making a Chia Pudding to take with me to my WW meeting tomorrow. I will eat it after weigh-in!

MT-good luck today, I was down 2 1/2 last night, I really expected more like 3-4, but having done this so many times, I decided I would be happy with anything, and if it showed I had not lost, I sure would be dissapointed, but I would also be telling myself, I know I was 100% OP all week, and I exercised, that it had to be water and it would not stay forever. Believe in YOU!

I'm so glad for you MT. Great loss.

Spent most of the day with friend neighbor in hospital. Potentially serious. Scares me. Took so long. 7-1. Glad to be home and healthy. We should all be home and healthy.

 

Food wasn't great. I'm running out of ideas on this strict elimination diet. I'd say I have two more weeks if not three to go. GI doctor tomorrow. Maybe a few suggestions. I'm also refluxing and can't take my reflux medicine in preparation for a test. That's sort of miserable. I will survive. It could be so much worse.

MT great job, seeing how much you have already loss is inspiring to me, you know how to do this and it shows.

Peg, sorry for the food issues, I had read up on the FODMAP diet as I have been having unpleasant stomach and digestive issues for quite some time. Lucky for me, I seem to be in a state where I am not experiencing those issues right now. Seeing Dr next month and it is on my long list of things to discuss. you will get through this

Low fodmap has made a big difference in how I feel. Not totally but I suppose there are still things I can eliminate. But I think it's diagnostic that it's helped.

Food will be better today. I'm less stressed. Busy but in a first world way. Mani pedi. MD. Lunch with my daughter. Have to figure out dinner for my husband. I'm so tired of cooking and he's not a restaurant person sadly.
