Today’s Weight: 185 . 5
Yes, zero, zip, zilch.
Considering that a week ago I wanted to quit this weight loss thing entirely, was sick of being a person who has to consider what she eats and how much she exercises and was basically only hanging on by a thread of desire somewhere deep within to press forward no matter what…I’m okay with this maintain.
It doesn’t help my Hot 100 Challenge, except that I’m not back where I started. But I’ve really been working through some non-weight related issues lately and it stresses me out at times. I can see how it is affecting my weight loss journey and I’m working things out.
In the meantime, I’m plugging on ahead. I keep posting my exercise as I complete it and I’ve begun using My Fitness Pal online to track my food since I managed to kill my iPod touch earlier this week (yea, I’ll have to journal about that later…it’s funny in a small way…) .
Just please know I haven’t given up. TOM has come and I think PMS is tapering off now because I’m eating better and not feeling quite as snacky as earlier in the week/end of last week.
In the meantime, for the record…
1 . 0 pound down
19 . 0 pounds to go
Hang in there Leah! Look at how far you've come! You can do this!!
I am having an aweful time posting to blogs lately.
You are doing great. Maintaining during TOM is okay and you have not given up.
We should be friends on My Fitness Pal….I am Christinemotherof6 if you want to!
I did hear from Dawne on my first blog post, she had to shut down her blog because of spam.
Just breathe! We all go thru the bumps in the road!
You can do this! I am so glad you did not quit. TOM can really wreak havoc on our diets. You can do this!!!
I am SO glad to hear you aren't quitting. You can do this Leah! You CAN! Onward and forward to a great week!
You cannot quit! You've come too far. No loss is not a gain. That's how I always look at it!
Leah, just keep going! I didn't register a significant loss for WEEKS after I changed my habits, and I didn't register a loss this week. (TOM definitely applies brakes to my progress, too. It sucks, but at least we know it's only temporary.)
Hang in there, keep going, AND DON'T QUIT BEING GOOD TO YOURSELF!
Keep going, you are doing great!!
