Wenesday Weigh In

...or not. I didn't weigh in today for a number of reasons.

I'm in a huge slump.  A depression, if you will. I had my physical last week and was up THREE pounds. How in the hell was that possible? Seriously people!  My calories have been within target 15-1800 and I work out on the treadmill burning 400 calories 5-6 days a week. I've really been pushing myself the last 2 weeks. To see a gain just killed me. Almost literally.

The visit to the doctor's office was embarrassing. I was a blubbering mess!  I think I bawled my eyes out for a good ten minutes before we could have an actual conversation. I reviewed my eating plan with her as well as my exercise efforts. She was just as baffled as I was. We talked more about surgery as well as the possibility of seeing a nutritionist (I did make an appointment with one for next month).

She also mentioned a book that a friend of hers has put to good use. She said that she herself hasn't yet read it, but it may be worth looking into. Off to the store I go to pick up  The Metabolism Miracle: 3 Easy Steps to Regain Control of Your Weight... Permanently. I'm reading it now and will review at another time. Until then though, I will leave it as I'm thinking of giving it a try -it's another "low carb" deal. We'll see. 

I won't be starting that plan until after Thanksgiving.  I'll just keep watching my calories and such until then though.

Wednesday Weigh In

Trying so hard not to live and die by the scale here!
I stayed the same.  BUT, I'm feeling like I may have lost a few pounds. I feel it in my pants are getting loose!  I have another 2 weeks to go before I can take a measurement though.

I'm hoping that I am holding onto some water because my routine was off yesterday. I consumed more sodium than usual and I did my "last chance workout" at night.

Still need to watch last nights BL. From the sounds of it, there's a lot of drama going on!  Can't wait to catch up.

Wenesday Weigh In

I'm happy to report that I lost the 3 pounds I gained last week. Wish it was more, but I will take it!
