Happy Easter Barb135:) well I'm accepting the challenge and I weighed this morning. I am determined to lose weight and exercise. I'm taking baby steps and taking this one day at a time. I can relate to everything you said. You made me smile when I've been really depressed about my weight. Thank you for inspiring me this morning.
Sooooo, I missed last week. Kids were on spring break. We got away for a few days. I gained 2 pounds. I am trying not to hate myself. LOL I ate the biggest, fattest steak and it was GOOD. And I had a blizzard from DQ. And I had chips in the car when we drove. And pizza. Like three times. AND, the free breakfast buffet every morning (which isn't really free as you pay for it with your room) which was heavy on the bacon and pancakes. And at least one piece of chocolate a day. Vacation man, what can I say.
I'm a total blubberpus. BUT, I'm back on it.
Did I mention the meal in the 8th haunted building in the US where the waiters dressed in period clothes? Had roast beef in gravy with mashed potatoes on bread. One of those open faced sandwiches. Tasted like a ghost had made it. A really old ghost on really old ghost bread. But it took about an hour and a half to make it to our table and by then, I was crazy hungry so ate it anyway. Know it was not good for me and it just tasted not too delicious. But by then, I was used to feeding the belly and had to go through with it. Vacation man, what can I say.
But I'm back on it.
Did I say that already?
,I hate to even report my weight loss but i read every fricking word Specialmom wrote about the food(thank you for letting me live thru you!) I lost 1 1/2 lbs this week. I have stuck to my chicken, fish, green veggies, salads, pinto beans and my new yogurt Oikos. I am bound and determined to get my cholesterol and triglycerides down to normal range. I have oatmeal with blueberries, cheerios or Raisin Bran for breakfast.
I was hoping to get outside and walk but there is another snow storm moving in tomorrow morning with upwards of 6 plus inches AGAIN so that will have to wait and there is more snow for later in the week. I am so sick of winter!!
We never fail if we keep trying~
This morning I was down from my weight at the beginning of the challenge by 4 lbs, a little less than 1 pound down from last week. But then I had one cup of coffee, and suddenly I was exactly the weight I was when I weighed last week. How can one lousy cup of coffee make my weight go up over a pound?!? It wasn't even one pound of liquid!
Anyway, yes it's Easter, but luckily also April Fool's day. Instead of the usual, in Augie's Easter basket he found three pounds of raw broccoli, a can of beans, some Campbell's chicken noodle soup, Play-Doh, some new socks, Tabasco sauce, and a pair of underwear with a banana in them. (They have been making banana jokes in 5th grade at lunchtime for quite a while, tee hee, tee hee. But let the Easter Bunny try it and it's OUTRAGEOUSLY EMBARRASSINGLY HILARIOUS. He's just lucky the two lemons I had bought kept rolling out the legs, so I put them back in the fridge.) He didn't think getting a lime in an Easter egg was particularly April Fools-ish, though ... in fact, he likes limes, so that one backfired. ("Hey! a LIME!") I also gave him Play-Doh.
But we did hide chocolate eggs inside the snap-together plastic ones, around the house. Luckily, Augie likes the seeking better than the eating, and (not like Halloween) I didn't buy the kind of candy I love most, so we scraped through. I ate a few small Easter sweets, but haven't eaten many or craved sweets either. (I took care of that yesterday by sneaking a Dr. Pepper when doing my recently deceased dad's taxes. Stress drinking.)
I could tell when getting dressed this morning that I wasn't going to be knocking it out of the park with a loss, my stubborn tummy was right there. But it could be worse considering the nature of the holiday treats.
I made cream of broccoli soup with the broccoli, and we had it for lunch. It was delicious.
I stayed the same. I hope it doesn't go up tomorrow. I made lasagna.
Yummy. Easter candy and desserts. Tasted Good but time to get back on track.
Yes so sick of winter we are getting the same stem tomorrow sara but not as much as you. Our ground is warmer so I hope it doesn't stick.
That's continue to press on. Keep on moving forward.
