The surprise weigh day!

So, if you didn’t read last night’s post, I decided to stick to weighing  myself once a week because I had a panic attack about such a small change.

Seriously, I really didn’t think that it would be so bad.

Anyway. Weight came in as plus one pound. Okay, body. Stop it. I’ve been hovering around 230 for a month. Just let me breeze past it. It’s like I go really well through the rest of the numbers, but once I get to a number that ends in zero, my body just fucking refuses to go past it.

My husband kindly pointed out that this is what happened around 250. I just checked my logs, and it happened around 240, too, but I wasn’t as concerned with it since I wasn’t really working out!

Trying to increase my heavy cardio workouts to 2 or 3 times a week right now. It’s been so long since I’ve done them that I really shouldn’t push myself.

I have been losing weight at a very steady pace, and this is all good. I cannot remember the last time I was in the 220’s, and was just really excited to get into them and past my 15% goal, too. *flips off the scale*

So, I’m going to be kind of grumpy today because I can. Doesn’t help that my back really hurts and I keep getting vertigo spells. I’ll be better tomorrow.


Let’s start over, eh?

So, after my post yesterday, I realized that I am kind of slipping. And by kind of, I mean really slipping. It happened so gradually that I didn’t even notice it.

Few more carbs.

More alcohol.


Less exercise.

I realized that I have to stop letting myself do this again. Jump back on. I wasn’t doing BAD, but I wasn’t doing as good as I was. Here’s the plan.

I’m going to watch what I eat again. I did yesterday and came out good. Even turned down alcohol and a second helping of dinner (which I had been taking). I will be doing the chair exercises, regardless of how ridiculous I think I look (stupid anxiety and over-thinking). And I will completely rest my toe because I want it to get better faster. I have it taped up now. It still doesn’t like to be flat on the ground, so I’m going to keep it elevated for a while. I am entering recipes that are not in My Fitness Pal the way that I do them so that my calories are accurate. Doing that will make sure that I know where I actually am and am accountable for everything I eat (I only just discovered the recipe function where you enter in ingredients and it does the math for you…).

I need to lose more weight before my husband gets here in a month. And I want to lose another 30 lbs before I get back to him. I am pretty confident that I can do that. I’ve been losing an average of 7.5 lbs a month right now. I think I can lose another 30 by the end of July!

While I’m not really starting over, I am picking myself back up off the floor. Goal for the end of the month is going to be 5 lbs lost from yesterday’s weigh in. I believe that to be attainable.

Now, to put it in my calendar so I have a reminder to post about it at the end of this month. :D
