Weight in day. I am up two pounds and totally frustrated. It’s not a huge amount but I am still pretty frustrated after such a good experience at Thanksgiving.  I should have weighed in on Monday like Dr. B and I talked about but it was raining, with a ton of traffic in the morning and I thought the few extra days would be okay so I convinced myself to wait until the usual day of the week when I normally go….huge lesson that the accountability factor of this can’t be denied. Work is stressful, life is stressful and I have not been feeling very good this week, just really tired so I have not exercised as much. Enough complaining, I am just gonna have to pull myself up and move forward. Dog-lbs walk tomorrow, that will make me feel better, one day at a time. I can only worry about what I do today and take tomorrow on when it gets here. I don’t like feeling like this…it is part of the process as sucky as it might be. I just have to keep reminding myself or that…and keep looking at Tristan and his sweet face.

    Just the other day I was saying to Christine how I could tell you have lost so much weight! The hard work IS paying off, and everyone can see the difference in you, not just physically, but mentally too. Keep at it! You are such an inspiration 🙂

      You don’t know how good that makes me feel Aaren, to know that others are seeing it to is a huge motivator! Thank you for your support!

    I know how frustrating this is. Ugh…been there. But the fact that you made such good choices on Thanksgiving shows how much progress you’ve mad, scale be damned. I’m sending along a little donation anyway, just ’cause I’m proud of you. You’re doing great!

    I know how you feel, Lori.
    I haven’t been feeling well lately either, haven’t been able to go swimming every week, haven’t been eating as well as I should have and I’m generally just tired.
    That’s winter for you!
    It’s the reason why I lack energy and courage.
    I get up and it’s dark outside.
    I leave my house for work and it’s dark outside.
    I leave work to go home and it’s dark outside.
    I need sunshine.
    I don’t need high temperatures or days off work to enjoy it, I just need the damn thing to be there, visible and constant.
    I hate rainy days and when it’s this cold, there’s nothing I enjoy more than some good, decent “winter food” ….. which unfortunately comes with lots of gravey and sugar. I love me a really warm cup of hot cocoa … with too many lumps of sugar. It’s not much, but it’s enough … to make everything go away again.
    I’ve gone up half a kilo as well and I can’t seem to shake it. I hate it.
    I also know winter is a very bad time for me to try a diet.
    I’ll just take it as it comes, try to go swimming as often as possible, but I’ve decided I won’t beat myself up over it.
    I know it’ll happen.
    We’ve got reasons to make it happen.
    We’ve got all those puppies waiting for our love and care.
    We’ll make it happen.

    Stay strong, give Tristan a big cuddle and keep looking towards the future, the loss of inches and clothes sizes will keep you focused.

    Take care!

    just remember, you have shed tons of guilt and baggage in the last couple of months and in the process received loads of love and encouragement…what’s a couple of pounds? You are doing great!

      You know me well friend and you are right, getting to know my body the ups and downs I am learning that even on weeks the scale goes up I am still moving forward! xoxo

    Don’t beat yourself up. You’ve done a terrific job. You will turn it around. We’ll help by walking your butt off tomorrow!!!
