Scales still are stuck!!!

Feb 23, 2007

I have been going to the gym much more lately and have had some really good workouts.  I just can't get the scales to move.  My hubby says that I look better than I have in 15 years.  I feel pretty good, I just wish the numbers were better.  I am still battling with food.  I am doing a little better, but the grazing tendencies are always knocking (or should I say BANGING) on the door!!!  I seem to do better in the beginning of the day.  I have such a routine....go to the gym...drink a bottle of water while there and on the way breakfast when I get home.   I don't feel the need to graze until late afternoon.  Then it hits me with a vengance.  I don't know what to do.  Oh well, I will continue to work on it.  Hopefully, I will get a grasp on it one of these days.  Who said Gastric Bypass was the easy way?!?!?!?!

One day at a time.....

It has been a few weeks since I've updated.  A million and one things have been happening.  My father fell and was in the hospital for 4 days with a broken right leg and broke left wrist!!!  That has kept me busy.  I have been trying to go to the gym.  I missed a few days last week, but have gone 2 times so far this week.  I will miss tomorrow because  my daughter has a doctors appointment.  Still battling the food.  Some days are much better than others.  I know this is going to be a battle for a long time coming!!!  I know that I should not beat myself up over it, just start over when I slip!

I did it again....

The gym that is!   2 days in a row.  Woohoo for me.  I am proud of myself for going.  I know some may think,"Good grief it is only 2 times", but for me that is an accomplishment.  I have to say that Dawn and Dianne are the reasons for my success this week.  they were both so kind to let me ramble on in the parking lot of Jason's Monday night ...feeling sorry for myself...feeling like a failure..  It really got me going.  Thank you ladies!!!  I love you!!!!!!!   I have really tried to get back on track and this week I feel like I am doing that!!!!

I also keep thinking about the beach in 2 months and I knew I was going to have to do something.  i go and see Dr. Bour next week.  I am sure that my weight loss will be disappointing to him, but that is ok.  I have decided that no matter what I will be happy, because 9 months ago I weighed 307 pounds and today I am flirting with onederland.  I can actually see it!!!!!  I may not be there by next Thursday, but I should be very very close!!!!

I am so happy it is monday!  We have our meeting tonight.  this is always the day of the week!!! I said the other day that I am getting back into the swing of things and I am.  Last week I joined the Shrinkdown with my husband.  My mom also is doing it.  We weighed on Friday and I had lost 2 pound since monday.  My husband lost 5 and my mom lost 5.4!!!!!!  I was like.....ill!!!  I am happy for them , but also sad that I only lost 2 pounds!!!!!  I have been logging my food on fitday and I love that!!!  I like to see how it all breaksdown.  Anyway, over the weekend I was not as good as I should have been, but I am back on the wagon today!!!!    Everyone is talking about going to Myrtle Beach for a get together in March.  I am debating on whether or not to go.  I would love to go, but I don't know if I can take the weekend off.  Since I only work weekends, it is hard to take too many of them off.  I will have to see.  Well, I am going to get a bottle of water and start drinking my water.  I haven't had any yet this morning...better get started!!!!!

Wow!!  It has been a long time since I have updated this thing!  I got so busy with the move and then the holidays that this just got put off to the side.  Or should I say I got put off to the side.  I found myself slipping back into the old ways of grazing and tons of carbs.  My weigh loss slowed tremendously...basically stopping.  This week I decided to get back on track.  My husband and I joined the Shrinkdown on monday.  Since then I have really been watching what i am putting in my mouth.  I logged on to and starting putting my food dairy on there.  I started that today.  I am going to reach my goal.  I will not be a failure at this.  I went to the meeting Monday and it was so wonderful seeing everyone.  I really have missed the support from them.  I can't wait until Monday to see every one again.  I am going to do this for MYSELF!!!!!
