So. Here we find ourselves again. I know, I know. I wrote back at the beginning of the year that I had recommited back in January! But here I find myself, 8 months later and I’m at 201.5lbs. I’ve been playing the up and down game for the better part of this year. Le Sigh.
Well…what happened you ask? At first I had a bit of medical issue that I thought might be contributing to everything, and perhaps it was, but it has been mostly resolved. Nothing serious, but enough to be annoying.
I still go to WW meetings and I was speaking with my leader about what was different back when I was losing weight. Well, one of the things I was doing was blogging regularly so I’m here testing the waters again thinking about getting back into blogging regularly. I’m still not sure, but I thought I would put it out here in hopes that it helps me to recommit to blogging. I’m really tired of the constant up and down. I don’t yet know what I have to do to get my head back in the game, but I figure this might be a good first step. Baby steps and all 😉
Well, just barely, but last week I hit onederland again with a weigh-in of 199.7lbs. This past week I was down 0.3lbs. Not a lot, but enough to tip the scales (as it were) in my direction.
The week before I was down 0.5lbs for a weigh-in of 200.0lbs. That marks 3 weeks in a row of losses. Little, baby losses, but losses nonetheless. I haven’t had 3 losses in a row since about June 2017, and before that it has been rare. I’m hoping I haven’t messed it up this week and that I can do 4 in a row. I’ll even take the small losses.
I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the small losses bother me. In reality, I just wish I was back in the 160s. My big mistake was to keep pushing to try to get under 150lbs and to get my bmi under 25. To be honest, I just don’t think it’s a possible weight for me to sustain. I didn’t know how good it was when I was there, and now I’m just hoping to lose 35-40lbs to get back there!
If slow and steady is the name of the game, I’m willing to accept it…I think it’ll be easier to accept in about 10lbs when more of my clothes fit again!
Ok – this is a short little post just to say, I haven’t given up quite so quickly!! I swear 😉
I’m really am back at it and have had a good week so far. I’m still doing Weight Watchers (been paying for it this whole time too…eeesh…at least I still went to a meeting every week this whole time – wait, is that worse? Ah, more on that later – back to this:) and now onto the Freestyle program. I weigh in on Wednesday evenings – so hopefully I’ll have a post up on either Wednesday night or Thursdays for the upcoming future.
I’ve updated the widget on the side (on the deskstop) that always shows my start weight and my current weight ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ ⇒ ⇒
I’ve also updated my Weekly Weigh-In’s page with the new info (i’m not going to fill in the last 3 years just yet..but maybe I will when I have a chance. Like I mentioned – I did keep going to WW this whole time so I did see the slow creep up. You can find it here: https://poundperpound.wordpress.com/weight-loss-timeline/
This week I was down 0.9lbs. Yay me. Except last week I was up 1lb, so I’m at 200.4, still in the 200s. ARGH. I haven’t been able to lose for more than 2 weeks in a row this whole time, so let’s hold off on our “woohoos” til I can get there!
I have also re-committed to exercising – My goal is to go 3x a week to the gym, and so far I’ve done that this first week. Since August 2017 I’ve been going once a week…because I joined a boxing gym!! What?! Yup…I’m boxing. Ok, but more on my exercise in the next post.
Hmm…not sure if anyone is around anymore, but just in case (HI!!!).
I haven’t been on here in almost 2 years! Eeek. We’ll I’m dipping my toe in again to see if I’d like to come back on a regular basis. I’ve slipped. AGAIN. Blah. blah. blah. Same old story isn’t it? Well I have and I’ve been having trouble getting back on track and losing the weight I’ve put on. Last week I weighed in (for the first time in 7 years) at 200.4lbs. UGH.
So I’m determined to make a proper go at this once again. Writing this blog helped me before and may it’ll help me again. So here’s hoping there’s someone reading out there, but if not…it’s okay…this really is for me. So here I go.
I’ll update things slowly and maybe I’ll even post regularly again. I’m trying to recommit to as many things that helped the the first time around as I can. So goes nothin’… (or maybe somethin’…you know the drill…)
Hmmm…don’t know if I’ll be blogging regularly but I thought I’d come back and mention that I’ve slipped a lot. Not a pound lost in the the time I’ve been away, but in fact I’ve gained a bit. I’m at 186.1lbs as of today’s weigh-in. I guess it’s good I’m still weighing-in. I’m not exercising. It’s been a very difficult 2 months and I stopped going and it seems getting back into it harder than I thought it would be. I’m planning on re-opening my gym membership tomorrow and start going back slowly. I’ll let you know how it goes. Hang in there right? 🙂
Alright, alright…it’s not really truthiness…it’s actual truth. Here I am. Back again. Not sure if I’ll start posting regularly but at least I’m thinking I’d like to come back to it all.
So where do we begin? I think we should begin at the truth. The truth is that the last couple years have been very difficult for me weight-wise. I’ve struggled and I’ve regained more than I’m comfortable with. So where am I right now? I’m sitting at a slightly uncomfortable 179.2lbs. But on the plus side that means I’m down 5.7lbs since the middle of January.
So here’s an honest look at how the last two years have gone:
But so far so good it would seem and here is how this year is going so far:
So here we are. I’m determined to get back on track this year and am making a concerted effort to track everything I eat and exercise regularly. I’ll try to visit again soon and update things. How are things with all of you? Is anyone still out there? Hi!! *waving* 🙂
No, no, I haven’t disappeared…but it feels that way. I’ve been struggling to say the least and I just felt writing the same “I’m struggling” post every week wasn’t very helpful and might just come off as whiny. I’m still updating my weekly weigh-in page if you’re interested so for now I’m just trying to chug along. Today I weighed-in at 168.0. Not great, but better than last week as I was down0.6lbs. I’m trying to get back on track and it’s been difficult. I’m not going away, I’m just being a bit quiet for now. Thanks for reading 🙂
