Spring in 2 Action Week #4

Spring In2 Action

It hasn’t really been a good week for me health-wise. I’ve been plagued with migraines and fatigue since Sunday. I’ve lived off of Kix cereal the last two days because of nausea. In the last 5 days, we have had only 1 day of sunshine. Today its raining buckets which is leaving my joints longing for my bed and a heating pad. Hubs is worried but sadly I think its just a part of life that I’ve got to learn to deal with. I just wish it didn’t include having to lay down every evening at 7pm.

The good news is that I posted a loss this week! Not a big loss but I’ll take what I can get. I’m down to 133.5 which puts me right back where I started. It definitely could have something to do with living off Kix the last couple days but I’m just going to take it as a loss and enjoy it. I’ve been trying to make better decisions and listen to my body for when I am actually hungry versus just in the mood to eat so hopefully that will lead to more loss in the future.

Challenge Stats:

Starting Weight: 133.4

Goal Weight: 128

Current Weight: 133.5

Change: +0.1

  5. If we could all just live on cereal to lose weight that would be great… but there are so many other temptations and I don’t think it counts as a vegetable! Darn! Visiting from comment hour!

  16. I suffer from migraines too… they are NO FUN! I get mine from chemically produced fragrance. i.e. perfume, scented soaps… I do well when I live a fragrance free life. I am sorry you’ve been plagued.

    I missed @CommentHour tonight, but I still wanted to come by and visit.

  21. I am so sorry you have not been feeling well (again!) I can, unfortunately, understand all too well as I’ve battled chronic health issues for over ten years now. It can be immensely frustrating.

    As far as your weight goal, I STRONGLY encourage you to buy the book “The Diet Doc’s Guide to Permanent Weight Loss.” After having a baby at age 40 I tried Weight Watcher’s to lose weight. In 8 months I lost only five pounds!

    Awhile later I started exercising, not so much to lose weight but because I found that I couldn’t get up even a few flights of stairs without feeling like I would collapse. I started out doing DVD’s using hand weights and have worked up from using 3 lb. weights to now using 5 to 10 lb. weights while doing dozens of reps of lunges, squats, biceps, triceps, etc. I LOVE it. But still, while I did become much stronger, I only lost a couple more pounds.

    It wasn’t until I bought The Diet Doc’s book that I FINALLY lost weight. It was actually recommended by someone I only know through Twitter! In a few months on this plan I lost 15 lbs. I would still like to lose 5 or ten more pounds but I now fit in a size 6 or 8 so I feel so good about how I look and the cute clothes I can wear.

    By the way, The Diet Doc’s plan is just that, a PLAN. It is not a “diet.” It is a new but practical way of eating by balancing your fat, carbs and protein. I can practically guarantee you that, like me, you eat way too many carbs and not nearly enough protein. This plan was so easy and I actually enjoy cooking again (after being married almost 30 years…do you know how many meals that is?!) I recommend this book to everyone I know that struggles to lose weight.
