WW Weekly Weigh In

Busy, crazy weekend.  I did get to my WW weigh in on Saturday morning.  I was down 2.1 lbs.  I'll take it!  We went out for dinner on Friday night so I was a little nervous weighing in on Saturday morning.  Everyone around me knows, I don't usually go out on Friday's for dinner but I managed fine.  I was more worried about the sodium than the actual food part.

Last night we went bowling.  It has been years since we went.  It was lots of fun but boy did I feel it in my arm and hip.  I came in last in all the games we played but we still had a blast.  If it wasn't so expensive I wouldn't mind going more often.

Ever since I started my weight loss journey I have been drinking obscene amounts of water.  I have let this slide a little, so my goal for this week is to up the water again.  Also, I want to increase the walking distance.

Take care!

Day 2 & 3 Update-Modem Down

I didn't disappear.  My modem for the internet was down on Day 2.  It is so frustrating trying to deal with these internet service providers sometimes.  They did send a replacement modem yesterday and I am up and running again.

The past couple of days have been pretty good foodwise.  I did have a couple of hiccups, but I am carrying on.  I have a confession to make.  I did give in and buy a bag of potato chips (my kryptonite).  Don't know why, I just did it.  

On a more positive note, I finally bought myself a new pair of runners.  They are the New Balance Fresh Foam 980.  I have had so  much trouble with the my right foot since June, that I am really hoping this will help. 

This is just a short post to check in.  I will try and post a Day 4 update tonight, otherwise I will combine it with my WW weekly weigh in tomorrow.

Day 1-Putting Things in Perspective

Believe it or not I am back with a post.  Just thinking about blogging today helped me tremendously.  Before I got out of bed, I decided it was time to get back into a routine of walking.   I am not at the running stage yet.  The desire is there but my body is not.  Anyways, I ended up walking 3.1 km.  In my mind it felt longer but I'll take it!

I tracked all my food today, drank my water and had nothing with sugar in it.  It was a successful day and I feel good about it.

To put things in perspective for myself, I was looking back at pictures at my heaviest, my lowest and a picture I took today.

Summer 2010-238 lbs     May 2012-146.8 lbs         Sept 16, 2014-206.1 lbs
I know what I look and feel like, but seeing the pictures just frustrates me to no end.  I look very lumpy now.  If only......  I was so close to onderland a few weeks ago, but I will get there again.

A few days ago I don't know if I was feeling brave or stupid...I decided to try on a pair of jeans that I kept from my heaviest time (size 22-238 lbs).  They were actually getting tight at that time.  Luckily, they were still way too loose for me now.  In the back of my mind I thought they would be, but the fat part of my brain was convinced they would be tight again.

Its funny how we see ourselves!
