Weigh in Day 2/22/13 +.6 lbs, 47 lbs down 43 Lbs to go

23 Feb

Two steps forward, one step back….I think I am officially cha-chaing.

I am trying really hard to be ok with this slight gain, I understand what is happening logically but emotionally I am a little bummed.  It wasn’t an overly tough week but one thing I couldn’t fit in was my weights with all I had going on. I still got in my Elliptical each morning before work,  I got in 3 walks at work during the day and my Thursday Yoga class.  I know I am stuck and instead of figuring out what I need to change-up to jump-start me again, I just keep doing the same old same old.

It is a journey and it took me years to get this bad shape, I need to accept it will take me a while to get healthy and in such a way that I will keep it off….. so I am breathing deep and trying hard not to beat myself up, it is only .6 after all but it sucks none the less.

I am optimistic about the next week and what I can turnaround.  Either way I am doing this so this week sucked, next week will be better!

    I’m sorry you had such a tough week. You are doing all the right things and hopefully that glorious hike up the mountain in your next post lifted your spirits. At times like these, it is important to stay focused on the bigger picture – how you are feeling healthier, how you are feeling about yourself; making good choices about what you put in your body and giving it the movement that it needs.

      You are so right Carol and during that hike I felt great and all my work so far is the reason.

    All of us that follow you care! I live in Corpus Christi and my city is always in the Top 10 for over weight people. Sadly, I go to the gym and the people that should be there are stalled at the Food Court ! My Daughter runs the Dialysis Clinic at Driscoll Childrens Hospital here. I hear the Horror stories about Parents and Children that refuse to change their Lifestyle even when facing Death. How sad is that? They all say the same thing,’It’s okay, I’m on the list for a transplant.’ Hmmm, let me guess who gets the transplant? A person of normal weight or the person that is grossly over weight? So, when I read your Blog, I am very proud to know you. Make NO mistake, you have our support! Hugs, Bob

      Thank you so much for the support Bob! I never knew how helpful doing a blog would be to me on my journey, but your encouraging words really help keep me so focused!!!
