Alright, now to the weigh in.
It wasn't pretty... so brace yourselves :(
And the scale says....
That is a Gain of 3.4 pounds this week
and makes my Total Lost 38.4 Pounds
Was on the treadmill only 3 times this week
Making the totals 1 hour 10 minutes
and 2.55 miles
I knew it would be a gain, but didn't know it would be so much. BUT I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
I know exactly why I gained, eating to much, only walking 3 days instead of 7. Simple. Now I need to fix it.
I got an award the other day from Shielah, and now have 2 new followers... on top of all you that support me already!!! Great reasons to be motivated and get my butt back in gear!!!
Why does it feel so hard?
I really don't know. I have lost motivation, and it's been kind of hard getting it back... Now look at me, back in the 280s. I NEVER wanted to see the 280s EVER EVER again!!! Grrr! I can only be mad at myself. I look at that list on the side of my weigh ins... and I'm the same weight I was 14 weeks ago. I feel like I have wasted 14 weeks, just poured them down the drain!
But it's time to take a deep breath and concentrate on what needs to be done.
Yesterday's Gone, Live for Today.
I have to remember that. I have to remember how good it felt to hit that 40 pounds lost mark, and make sure I do it this week!!! I want out of the 280s! If I put some effort into it, I'll get out of them for good this week. If I really work hard, maybe I can get back in the green by loosing 3.6 pounds. Then I would be at 42 pounds lost, where I was 3 weeks ago! I won't be mad if I don't hit 3.6, but I'm going to try. You know I usually don't set number goals for myself, but this week I am really going to try and hit that number. It WILL be a loss, and I'll do my best to get 3.6 :)
Get on the treadmill EVERY day
Eat Small portions
Get to bed no later than midnight
No fast food
Stop snacking so much
That's not so bad, and I know that's ALL I need to do. I'm not stuck at this weight because of a plateau, I'm stuck because I just haven't been putting in the work! So I should consider myself lucky. I have yet to really hit a plateau, and I see how frustrating that is! I just need to get rededicated. After I hit that 40th day in a row of being on the treadmill, I missed 2 days, but got back on it. I told myself "see, you don't have to do it EVERY day, it's still habit." Well it's been 2 weeks and now I missed FOUR days this week. NOT GOOD. I HAVE to do it EVERY DAY!
Today was pretty stressful, more money problems, and more stress I don't need! BUT before I go to bed, I'm going to concentrate on the good of today, and what made me smile :)
It was a beautiful day :)
Ray made me smile, he always does :)
My son got home from camp! It's so nice to have him home! :)
There, that feels better.
And a new one: Today is the last day I will be in the 280s!!! Damn it!!! :)
I'm pretty tired again tonight, so going to read up on your blogs and then getting to bed! Should be before Midnight, if I'm not done- I'll go anyway!!! :)
