292 or 291, THAT is the question.

Friday, October 17, 2014

Ok this sickness is really getting on my nerves. Probably yours also. SO....moving on.

Today I have to put the finishing touches on all the crafts I have ready to go then later today we are going to go set up at the church that the show is being held at. Tomorrow is the big day. Our first craft show this year. I'll post pics!

Last year we did 5 or 6 shows, we just aren't as motivated this year or something. We have another show Nov 1 that is our favorite one and is right here in our little home town. We might squeeze 1 in in between now and then who knows once the bug hits us? lol.

I do enjoy looking at all the crafts people make and just being in among the people. The Christmas atmosphere I guess?

I got up this morning way too early, took my meds, weighed myself and logged it on here so I wouldn't miss it. Im so afraid of missing a day of logging in now that I am well over 100 days in a row. I hope to make it a YEAR! WOO HOO!

I was down to 292, went back to bed for a few hours, back up...and weighed again and squeaked into the 291 spot...hehe. We will see if it's still there tomorrow.

I really wanted a milk shake last night. I ended up eating applesauce. lol.

Having a hard time focusing on my next goal of 275 by Christmas but at least being sick is taking care of that for me...Im just going along with it.

Now I really must head to the garage, I have to stain 2 nativity sets or they wont be ready to go, then I have to stuff some burlap snowman heads and put eyeballs on my snowman fence. :) emoticon emoticon

That Id get up today (at 10 am mind you) and weigh myself and having a 3-4 pound loss? Yep the scale hit 292. I had not been drinking a lot of fluids, so I tried hard yesterday to drink lots of water. I was up 3 times in the night to GO. That and getting much needed sleep in between must have helped. I did rush around at work yesterday but I did not do any extra exercises. I ate regular.

The only meds I am on is amoxicilan. My throat still feels like Im swallowing gravel.

Love this pic, love this girl.

Last blog I asked you to kick my butt. In answer, yes I did get on my bike that day although I dont think I got on the treadmill.

I havent lost anything in the last couple of weeks, but I have been holding pretty steady. Yesterday I did dip down to 295 so I am claiming it even though today I was at 296. I will get there again!

I have been sick, right now my tonsils as the size of grapes. ICK! Just very run down too. Money worries, job stress. I'll come around, just not today!

Still wearing my step counter. Getting in 8,000-13,000 steps a day or thereabouts.

  Come on Sandy give yourself a break, look at the step count- that is fantastic. One day at a time girl, you are headed in the right direction maybe just not as fast as you wanted but it is going down rejoice! Maybe hide the scale for a few weeks and then get a nice surprise. Anyway we are here to support each other, keep up the good work.

    You sound like me I have hit a plateau. It's driving me insane. But I will get it moving eventually and so will you I am sure of that.

Sorry to hear that you aren't feeling well. That just stinks.
I hope that your stresses ease up soon. It's no fun being
stressed out all the time believe me I know exactly how
that is.

Hugs,
Kim

    Are you taking any cold medicines? When I used to be a Weight Watchers member, my leader told me that cold medicines can hinder weight loss and even cause weight gains. I think you're doing a fantastic job at losing weight! Just remember that as long as you keep doing what you should be doing, the weight has to come off! This might just be a little, yucky plateau. I'm cheering for you and I hope your stress eases up and that you feel better asap!

I need someone to kick me in the seat of my pants.

Thursday, October 09, 2014

This week I am dragging. My mood is horrible. Had a fight with the husband, it seems to be on the mend but my motivation is almost non existent. Sitting here with my sneakers on trying to will myself to ride the bike and walk the treadmill. Making up the sorry excuse for a blog even, to keep from doing it. UGGGHH!!!! I just want to go back to bed. Work at 11 today, till 7:30 tonight. Off tomorrow. The scale has not moved all week. The first time in months. NADA.

OK I ran out of things to gripe about so I guess I could...maybe...go get on my bike.

UGGGGGGGGGGHHHH!

  OK girl I am kicking. Hey you earned those new shoes by being under 300#. So OK take today off and since you do not have to work tomorrow give those new shoes a workout.

    Hoping you made it to your bike. You've been riding the reward train of all the work and effort you're been putting in and it's easy to get bummed when the ride slows or stops--doubly frustrating when you're still paying shoveling coal! Like all things in life, it won't last--there's an inevitability to this (and to most things). You've been doing this and, obviously, you can do this!

    You know why the scale hasn't moved...Because you're NOT in the game. In the words of Taylor Swift "Shake It Off" and keep on trucking! No one can make you do anything, you need to remember why you started and push hard than ever! You don't slow down near the finish you sprint with everything you've got to finish STRONG! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My next 100 and a super gross story.

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

When I think of my weight I still catch myself saying I am 300something. I am NOT. Hopefully I never will be again. My subconscious hasn't caught up with my body. It better just hurry the heck up, aint nobody got time for that.

I have never been one of those people that could tell you what I weighed when I was 18, or 21, or when my first child was born. I can tell you when I was about 19-20 years old I wore a size 24W in women's jeans. I can also tell you a couple of years ago I wore a size 34W in women's jeans and we are NOT talking waist size.

Somewhere between 20 and 40, the clothes kept getting smaller and even less attractive. Catalog shopping and hoping beyond hope that whatever I ordered would look decent and fit. I dont want to shop from a catalog ever, and I mean EVER again.

Today I am squeezing into 26W's and I know I am headed to the 24's and beyond. My body fat may be melting slowly, the skin however is not. I'll deal with that slapping flapping while I walk or jog, just so long as I CAN walk and jog. Know what I mean?

So my super gross story.

The other day I went to the bathroom, ummm...and before a flushed and as I was pulling my sweat pants up my wedding band and engagement ring flies off my finger and right into the bowl. I knew they were loose but not ready to go that far yet. I had to scoop them out. Yes GROSS, but what was I to do? So now they are in my jewelry box needing to be sized.

So BE CAREFUL LADIES AND GENTS it could happen to you!

Goal, 275 by Christmas.

    That's awesome, though, that your rings fell off. Be glad you didn't lose them somewhere else where you wouldn't be able to find them.

    I think a lot of us are having the same issues with our rings. I had to take one of mine and put it away because it fell off in the grocery store. I was terrified I was going to loose it. Thankfully it didn't fall into the toilet though lol.
