Late post on weigh in day!

I actually lost this week! I ended up being laid out because of my ankle for 4 days, and couldn’t find my weights. I did do some light cleaning, though, for 30 minutes at a time for a few times. Helped burn SOME stuff. :) Got back into it yesterday, and …I didn’t do too well. I was tired. Not worn out or in pain, just so tired I couldn’t lift my muscles. It was horrible. I hated it.

I lost 3.2 pounds this week, though! And I measured, which will follow. Even after Nacho-geddon (which is what my husband called it), and not exercising for 2 days that I normally would, I lost a lot. I am hoping that it’s the low-carb that I am on. That would be awesome. Really, it would be. :) My mom pointed out to me that I passed losing 5% of my starting weight! That’s pretty cool! Can’t believe I did that without realizing it.

I am seriously on a down cycle now. It’s weird because I’m only half depressed. My body just does not want to be awake. We had to make some serious decisions today, too, and that isn’t helping my body. There are 3 of us living with 1 income right now, a smallish income. It’s becoming quite stressful, and now we’re making the hard decisions that no one ever wants to make. Oddly enough, even with all this added “stress”, I am very much in the mindset of determination. Determined to not let this drag me down, affect my life or my weight loss. I cried for a bit, but that’s because there was talk of giving up my babies (my three awesome cats). I put my foot down and told my husband that giving them away would be a sign that everything was really fucked, and that all hope would be gone. I can’t lose everything AND be completely alone, too. He agrees, so we’re going to have to make things work out. We’re working things out, and we might be able to make it through. It would really help if DHS called me back so we could get more help with food stamps. :\ $16 just isn’t enough…

Anyway. I only wanted to post that so that it’s out there, and so that I can show that I am not letting it be an excuse. I am using it as fuel. I will not deter from my plan, and I will still be skinny. ONTO MY MEASUREMENTS.

  • Neck – 16.5 (no loss)
  • Bust – 49.0 (-.5)
  • Ribs – 41.25 (-.25)
  • Waist – 49 (no loss)
  • Hips – 50.5 (-.5)

All in all, kind of expected. I didn’t feel like I lost a lot these past couple weeks. I don’t even remember what my body fat percentage was. I try not to look at it anymore because it seems inaccurate. But, I believe it’s gone down… *shrug*

Today was a crappy day. Putting off exercise until later so I can focus on getting things sorted that we can sell and applying to places. It’s been one hell of a day, lemme tell you. Onward, though! We’ll get through it. We always do. :)
