I am so excited to have today off! We ordered pizza last night I pretty much stayed OP and did not have pop. My weight is the same. I really need to update my tracker though.
We went out and worked with the horses again last night. Grady, my appaloosa is already showing progress. Cash the appaloosa/paint mix is an idiot. Well the actual issue is not that he is dumb its that he's a smart horse who bears grudges. It's like he catalogs exactly what annoys you and pulls it out when he needs to. He is very testy.
I am looking forward to getting on track this week. We took a short walk last night, which felt good. My sister and I promised to track and send each other an email with our tracking. I'd like to lose two dress sizes by Christmas so I can wear my normal clothes. I only have one pair of jeans that fits me right now.
Misty - how about a mini-goal ticker in your signature for that Christmas goal?
I did TONS this weekend. Made a bunch of food (all WW recipes, but also some bread that wasn't a WW recipe but is still WW friendly), installed a cabinet in the kitchen with an above-the-stove microwave underneath it (ok DH did most of that but I helped with everything!) and today we emptied out our bedroom and painted it, bought new curtains, etc. Plus we hung some new pictures and wall decorations as well. I'll post pictures when I get a chance! The bedroom looks AWESOME but we need a new quilt since the colors don't match the walls now
Off for a nice walk and some shepherd's pie. Not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow
Hey there. Wow, Lori, you did so much this weekend!!! I feel like such a sloth by comparison. I did a whole lot of nuttin'. I had all last week off and didn't do much. I hate that when you have so much you want to get done but you think you have all this time and the next thing you know it has gone by in a flash.
I'm getting very frustrated with my weight. My work uniforms are getting very tight and I'm getting very po'd by it. I really just don't want to have to buy anymore uniforms. I'm in a 2XL now and I'll be darned if I am going to buy up another size. I think I can get back into a better routine with my exercise and I just need to show a bit more restraint as far as my diet goes. I'm rethinking trying dr. phil's plan, I need to get his books out and have another look at those. My son starts school tomorrow so I think getting back into that routine with him being in school will help a lot. I gained a lot of weight over the summer instead of losing like I wanted.
Jen I know exactly how you feel. It was how I felt right before I went back to Weight Watchers. I refused to buy another size bigger. I was in 16Ws and XL/1X shirts. I couldn't stand the thought of having to go any higher than that. I had been there before and lost the weight before I wasn't going to let myself go all the way back. A routine will DEFINITELY help.
Not much new on my end. Wish I had another day to relax but oh well Got everything done this weekend though and the bedroom looks great! I'll post pics in a few days when I get them off the camera.
Lori, looking forward to seeing your new artwork! BTW do you watch the "Ink" shows on TLC?
Jeanne, excellent work!!! yes I am certain a routine will help me a lot with losing weight.
I am down 2 lbs already, a lot of that is water I know. I have been feeling bloated lately, a sure sign that I am retaining water. Also TOM is coming up so that probably accounts for a few lbs right there.
Signed up again at Fitday, am going to record my food there and at home. Just need to keep at it on a daily basis is the main problem.
Hi there Jen! Congrats on the loss! I've been thinking about FitDay, but to be honest I'd want to use the downloadable version, and I can't put it on my work computer, and when I get home after being on a computer all day I don't want to go on my computer. I like eTools for WW because I can get to it from work and it has a complete list of food online. Plus, its worked already, so why stop a good thing?
Go check out my photos! They are "weight loss so far" photos
This week is TOM. Not losing as much as I'd like because of that, but hopefully it will catch up to me next week!
