Wednesday Weigh In

Up 4 pounds.

Like I said, I knew it was coming.  I am very swollen, retaining lots of water which is normal for me during the summah time. The thing that is bothering me is that I'm feeling it.  Feeling it big time.  When I gained that 7 pounds a few weeks ago, I never felt it. This, I do. My hands are huge and tight, my face is bloated and my legs are heavy.  This is one of the things I'm not a huge fan of in the summer.

The good news though is that I'm feeling pretty comfortable in that swimsuit I showed you a few weeks back. I've worn it a few times and have actually gotten in to the pool.  I think I would even go in to the public pool when we head to the park next month.  That's a HUGE step for me!  I know I have a long way to go but I also know that I've come a long way.  I'm trying really hard to not worry about what other's see while knowing where I have come from. Next summer, things will even be better. Nothing but goodness on the horizon.

Food journal for today, looking at just over 1500 calories.

More good news - the plaster guy contacted hubs today. He apologized for the mis-hap and said the crew would be here on Friday.  He also delivered the quote which ended up being about half of what we expected. Finally! Something is going to cost less than anticipated.  Now, if it gets completed on Friday, that will be an added "bonus". Oye!

Things are looking up.


  1. I bet once the humid weather is gone, the water weight will be too. I ended up bloating a lot from my cysts and my hands, feet and face really felt it. My hands I don't think will ever go down but that is ok.

    That's awesome news about the bathing suit! I still have to shop for one.

    Yay on the plaster guy too! That is great that he can do the work for less to boot!! :)

  2. Hi Jenn! I feel bad for you. A few of the members of my weight loss chapter have the same issue. One gained 9 pounds in a week once. All they say that can be done is watch their sodium--which I'm sure you already do.

  3. You have come a long way, we both have, that is a good way to look at it! Swimming sounds like a lot of fun, I miss being able to do that!
