I don't know what to tell you. You look fine, but if it doesn't feel right, that's what might be lacking. Are you exercising regularly? Maybe toning is what you really need to help with trouble areas? And of course, after babies and life, we all have trouble areas, so don't shoot for perfection as that aint happenin' for most all of us!
Yay on the new low!
You are doing it! And I'm with Diana3271, if the critters want to eat your garden, it must be worth eating! But I feel your pain. I've been battling a resident groundhog too. He's winning despite my many efforts to thwart him/her.
Hi and welcome!
And congrats on losing that pound!
But better eye trouble than antifreeze trouble I suppose. Hopefully you can figure out how to make him feel more comfortable. And I feel your pain on the food last night. I have pretty good control on most things, but I know there are some trigger foods I just can't have near me. Good thing my husband doesn't ever cook or shop for food and even if he did, he's a health nut.
Hope you were able to get back to sleep! 3 am is way too early! I also hope you get answers with the labs. What do they look for in the labs that they don't see/find in the scratch tests? I sure hope they find something because you know there is something! SO frustrating!
and good luck! I don't know anything about that plan, sorry!
Sorry about the surprise TTOM. Your body is still figuring itself all out hormone-wise. I hope they straighten out soon for you!
(I just love tying that out - such a great user name) With the cake gone, I'm hoping the temptation is gone for you too. Rhubarb is one of my all time favorites. I just planted some in my garden and 1 of the 3 took (so far at least). I have had very few sweets since starting, but a slice of rhubarb pie with homemade ice cream was one of them!
It's really hard to exercise when it's hot outside - plain and simple. Our bodies just don't like it and we should listen to them! Indoors and in AC - OK. And I don't remember if I have had a chance to post to you yet about your mom. I'm really sorry. That has to be incredibly difficult to have to stand by and watch. You're a really good daughter to be there for her like you are.
Good just on sticking to a plan, but don't beat yourself up if you don't get to 10 pounds lost. The less you have to lose, the harder it is to lose it fast.
And good luck with the Italian restaurant (and remember, one meal of celebration is not the end of the world either)
Yes it is darn hot in the midwest right now - so take it easy and be smart about it. And how sweet of your husband to grill up all those veggies for you! LOVE grilled veggies!
Welcome and hi!
You have to do what works for you, but please use caution with trying to run at your weight. If it says to do it at a level of 3-4, then you should do something at a level of 3-4. An injury at this point could lay you up for months and months. of course, if running is all you love or want to do, fine, great... but there are so many other things that work. I started this journey at 255 and I started with doing a Wii game (Walk it Out). I started with walking in place on the board, then walking in place on the floor, then walking using an aerobic step. I then moved on to aerobic and strength videos and now I'm at a gym doing classes with the much fitter people, just keeping it low impact still to protect my knees. As long as my heart rate is going to where it should be, I keep the effort as low impact as possible so that I can keep my knees healthy.
I'm sorry you were feeling low yesterday. I feel that way oftentimes after a trip or after a big project or after guests visit. But you should be proud of yourself for not eating and for going shopping!
Hi and welcome!
Your husband cooks for you? And will make it healthy for you too? He's a keeper! I can hardly imagine my husband cooking. He 'can' cook for sustenance, but I don't enjoy that food. So he enjoys my food!
Hope you are loving your new house! I can hardly imagine being mostly unpacked in a couple days - means we have too much stuff!
You must be loving that midwest heat!!!
So how is being a full time mom treating you?
Diana in LA
Thinking about you and hoping all is OK.
Well, I am supposed to be going to a step class in 40 minutes. Takes 20 minutes to get there. My sons are still sleeping. Our guest and my MIL is still sleeping. Man, I don't think I can make the class then! What is this conspiracy??? I just had to cancel it. There is a zumba class tonight (not likely to make it as I have a roast to cook) and so, I guess I'll be working out down in the basement. Funny how that was my preferred workout until a month ago and now I hate it! LOL Well, I don't hate it, but it goes so much faster in the gym than at home for some reason.
My son started on an antibiotic last night. Yes, it is good to have a doctor in the family. My mother in law is a psychiatrist and neurologist (double specialty), but in Europe, you have to work as a general practioner before and while you specialize. Plus, she always worked in an emergency ward at a psychiatric hospital and she would have to deal with emergency situations and sick psychiatric patients all the time.
Getting ready for vacation. bought all the stuff we need for it yesterday. And tomorrow I'll bake for it all (on a super hot day -great timing). I'm half tempted to bring the scale with me. After chastising others for thinking of doing that! If it were any other time of my cycle, I would not be tempted to do that, but this is JUST when I expect my whoosh and seeing that and FEELING the weight come off is a big mental uplifter after seeing the scale stay steady or go up for over two weeks during my stall out. But, my husband would not let me hear the end of it if I do, so I think I won't, but I want to!
