Well this is an annoying weigh in. As much as I try to be all casual about the scale (like I was for the past 6 months, just not stressing about it, and that seemed to work well... I still lost weight!), I am starting to feel a bit of pressure over my Sunday weigh-ins. And this week I was pretty disappointed. Actually, I didn't weigh this morning (had breakfast before I remembered to weigh) but I *did* weigh in earlier this week. Two days ago I was down a pound to 228. Then yesterday I was UP two pounds to 230! Carb bloat, I think. We had pizza for dinner and although I had thin crust, I ate too much of it and I'm sure it was loaded with sodium too. So net is that I am up a pound this week.
I did lay off the carbs and processed foods for the first half of the week (thus the pound loss) but it's amazing what one day of junk can do! I did get back to some walking outdoors, even though it is cold, and I've enjoyed that.
I've had this 3-day diet kit sitting on my room for a couple of months, and I need to review it, but I have just not felt like doing a "diet" at all. I got it out and looked it over, and the calories are reasonable and it includes real food (like baked salmon and vegetables, fruit, yogurt, etc) so I think I will give it a try this week. It's only 3 days... and I do enjoy reviewing things! Maybe that'll be a good way to get my brain out of the junk and back on eating a bit healthier.
I am 38 years old, female, a degree-holding stay-at-home-mom, and I weigh 278 pounds. I have been obese for ten years now. Time to get out of this fat prison I have made for myself.
--This is the original introduction I wrote when I first started this blog in 2007. I leave it as a reminder to myself of where I came from. Currently, I am 46 years old and weigh significantly less...see the blog for details. I lost 103 pounds, then had a partial regain, and am once again working at weight loss and better health.
