weight loss

Wednesday Weigh-in = Not a happy camper

So I am totally not a happy camper this morning.  I talked a big game last week and totally failed.  The scale decided that 163.8 is today’s lucky number which adds up to a gain of 2.4 lbs.  I am so tired of this yo-yo thing.  Today is WEEK 4 and I have yet to make any progress on my weight loss goals.  I lose then I gain.  I lose then I gain.  It has gotten to the point where I am almost embarrassed to do my weigh-in posts just because I cannot seem to get anywhere.  Its completely frustrating.  BUT I’m still not going to quit.

Yesterday I started the Special K challenge.  One, because it actually provides structure that I need.  Two, it gives plenty of option.  And three, I seriously think I could eat cereal for every meal.  Of course I don’t.  Basically I drink a protein shake for breakfast and have a mid-morning snack (which I must admit the Special K fruit crisps are awesome).  I have a meal bar for lunch (which actually fills me up).  I get another afternoon snack (which usually consists of some string cheese and whole grain crackers).  Then I get dinner of my choice.

I am totally ready to get back to exercising but I don’t see that it the near future.  I am off my crutches but stairs still kill me and I’m sore by the end of the day (and I have a desk job!).  Maybe in the next two weeks.  I saw an ad for this workout series and for $10 have to give it a try.  It should come in just in time for me to start working out again!

So here are my stats:

Starting weight:  164.4
3 month goal (3/9/10): 149.4

Last weigh-in:  161.4
Today’s weigh-in:  163.8
Change:  +2.4

Overall Change:  -0.6

PSA: Fibro and Crutches don’t mix

Holy cow am I sore!  I woke up this morning and could hardly move (well, I feel that a lot of mornings but this was definitely different).  My shoulders were so sore!  Yesterday was my first full day on crutches (since Wednesday I stayed home from work) and it was also my first full day of CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) which basically means that I am a chaplain intern at a local hospital.  The joints in my right leg are also really sore from where I am overcompensating for my injury.  So I am definitely looking forward to relaxing tonight.  I know there has been no Friday Words of Faith posted as of yet but I hope that you accept my apologies.  I am off to put my feet up and cuddle with Abby!
