Displaying results for "weight loss"

I hate weigh in day now…

For the past few weeks I have been dreading Thursday rather than looking forward to it. If you asked how I FEEL.. I’d tell you tomorrow will be a +40 day and I’m right back where I started but I know that’s just silly talk. All that has been going through my head today is this (in the voice of Gene Wilder of course) “have so much time, and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it.” I don’t know how I’ll accomplish everything I need to tomorrow before we leave.

My Mom lost almost 3 lbs this week!

I lost 0.9 lbs this week.

I’m more excited about my Mom’s loss than mine at this point! She’s been struggling and I’m so glad she had a good week.

My loss was shocking considering the amount of chocolate I consumed this week.

It’s been a long stress filled week and I’m glad it’s Thursday so the week can reset..

I haven’t felt well since yesterday afternoon (not sure if it’s related to my walk in the smoke yesterday or if I just picked up a bug or something) and I ended up canceling my training session today..which I feel bad about because as much as I hate them… I love them.. I just don’t have it in me to do anything but sit…or sleep.

It’s now countdown to my Cousin’s wedding time… it’s in MD where we used to live and most of the family is coming (our shared family is mostly all in MI) so I get to see my Mom, my Grandpa, an uncle who will probably hassle me and my “concerned” cousin who I ranted about earlier as well as aunts and other cousins. I’m excited to see everyone..only my Mom has seen me since I have started loosing weight. My awesome cousin even made sure I could eat at her reception!! I love her!!

PMS is hungry and wants to be fed…

It wants…

Pickles - (it got pickled green tomatoes from the Farmer’s market and they have cloves in them and are AWESOME) 

Bananas

Peanut butter (specifically on the bananas)

Salty chips (it got the crushed remains of some baked potato chips)

Tomato sauce on Spinach Pasta spirals 

Damage done = 14 WW points and 10 over for the day… Still have one activity point left so it could be worse..lol

The annoying bit is PMS was screaming a day before weigh in. SHHHHHHHH go back to sleep!

It bothers me that…

Some people in my family think losing weight may be unhealthy and that I might be taking it too far but yet being extremely overweight is ok ? (Yes there are more overweight people in my family than not and some are even in the MO range)

Weight watchers tells me based on my height - 

"Your healthy weight range is 135 to 169 lbs."

Today I weighed 164.1 - I’m at the high end of my healthy range.

My goal weight is 140- 150 .. I’m not sure what I’m aiming for I’m just eating better and exercising and will see how it shakes out.

My average weekly weight loss is 1.5 lbs. (over 2 lbs a week consistently can be unhealthy)

I eat a lot of food in little amounts through out the day and most of it is obscene amounts of fruits and vegetables. 

I’m not anemic.. I’m not lacking in ANY vitamins and minerals to be exact.. Why? because I get tested regularly.  

I don’t need meat..I don’t need dairy… I don’t need eggs.. if fact those things put me on track to follow in my father’s footsteps.. heart attacks, stints and 15-20 pills a day and not being able to do the thing you want because you don’t feel well and all your conversations revolve about how you feel or what Doctor you have to see. My Dr is VERY happy with how I have brought down my cholesterol levels.

Am I on a diet?

NO!

A “diet” implies at some point I’ll be done… I can not be “done”

Done would be stopping what I am doing now and going back to what I used to be doing. That is just stupid… where did that get me? Over 200 lbs with high cholesterol and getting out of breath just walking up the stairs and feeling unhappy and defeated.

I will always be vegan.. (my heart demands it)

I will always do some form of exercise (even if it’s just a walk around the block or dancing around the house) 

I will always eat healthy food in healthy portions

This is a lifestyle change not a diet

As a very good friend pointed out to me… people who criticize others for doing something good for themselves need to look inside to see why they are doing it. Usually it has nothing to do with the person they are criticizing but a way to justify why they aren’t doing it themselves.

I posted this on FB last night and said:
Just another day in Austin- and 104 after 7pm is just wrong… Hoping it won’t  be too hot in the morning to walk.
and a friend commented:
You have shifted your position…used to be you were  hoping for an excuse to not walk and now you look forward to it. good for you  :)
I don’t remember being like that but even if it was just a perception..YEAH FOR THAT!

Are You Hung Up on a Dress Size?

Article By: Carol Lynn Krol

Aiming to be the “perfect” size can only set you up for disappointment — especially when you realize how random store clothing sizes really are.

Women working toward a weight-loss goal usually have a specific number on the scale in mind, but they often have an ideal clothing size as well.

But according to George Simonton design director of eponymous fashion label George Simonton, and professor at Fashion Institute of Technology, there is no standard sizing convention among women’s clothing manufacturers. “If you try an 8 from each designer, you’ll get a different fit on each one,” Simonton says. “They develop their own specs and measurements.”

That’s no surprise to any woman who’s burst into tears in a dressing room. Further, Jo Kallal, professor of fashion and apparel studies at University of Delaware, says that even within a single brand, there are disparities. “Neiman Marcus’ mail order catalog is more mass market than what they have in stores,” Kallal says. “[The latter] tends to be traditional sizing, and the [former] is roomier.”
