WI 04/24/10

Got on the scale today and lost 2.4 lbs.  So happy with that, especially after eating at Los Bravos last night.  I was afraid that would hang on to me this morning.  No real workouts yet because my legs and knees are still really giving me trouble and even walking is painful for very long.  Just tried to watch what I was eating and keep my portions smaller.

Did good last night, after Los Bravos, there were caramel brownies and I didn't eat one.  Then Josh was still hungry so we stopped at McDonald's to get him some nuggets and I just got a drink.  I could have easily ordered a burger and fries and eaten that too.

Feeling like I accomplished something this week and hope I can keep it going.

4/20/10 Update

Doing pretty good this week...trying to stay focused...used too many points on a scone today but I'm not in the negative for the week so I think I can make it.

I've just got to try to get in a short walk during lunch and eat healthier each meal.

Wake Up Call 4/15/10

Today, I had to go shopping and buy new clothes and new shoes because I can’t fit into most of my old ones.  Yes, I’ve had to go back to buying the same size I wore when I started Weight Watchers over 2 years ago.  I’ve gained back 70+ lbs of the 88 that I lost and I feel terrible.


I spent $300 getting bigger clothes and shoes that I can actually wear because my legs and feet are in such bad shape due to the extra weight and lack of exercise.  I must get my butt back in gear and lose this weight…AGAIN!  


I’ll start slowly with the walking and weights and hope I can get back to a healthy weight again within a year or so.  I lost the last 88 pounds in a year…I can do it again if I just focus!

Run over by the wagon...not just fallen off!

I've got to commit to my health again.  Not just to lose the weight but to get healthy and get rid of the pain in my joints.  The arthrititus is so much worse than it used to be and I know it's because of the bad food and no exercise.  My muscle tone has gone to nothing.  When I was at my lowest of 187 people kept telling me I didn't need to lose any more and I could have probably lived at that weight and been happy.

Instead, I stopped working out and started eating like a pig again.  I try to eat healthy now but it never lasts more than a day or 2 before I give up again.  The problem is the exercise.  I don't work out because I'm sick and don't feel well but I'm sick because I don't work out.  I'm going to have to suck it up and get some sort of work out in...even if it's just walking.

Right now my legs and feet are in such bad shape that I can barely walk in the morning.  THIS HAS TO STOP!
