WEEK 6- 248 lbs. up .4

Well the loosing streak was broken. I kind of figured that I would have a small gain. You can't eat a tub of buttered popcorn and expect to get away with it. I was ok with the WI. Like I've said before, I am not going to freak over that little of a weight gain. I can poop and loose more weight then that! Gross but true. I enjoy my group. They are so funny. It's good to get back to my regular group.....the over 50 lbs group. My friend from church had gained alittle also. I weighed in the evening, last time I weighed in the morning. I have done well overall. Lots more movement, lots more water, much better attitude.

On Sunday morning I had an anxiety attack. I was more then freaked out, about what, who knows....yes that is frustrating. This isn't the 1st time this has happened. Instead of hiding out in my room I FORCED myself to get my ass up and go for a walk. I went down to the bird preserve and walked for about 2 hours. LOVED IT. Totally turned me back around. I was able to go to church.....so glad I did. I do love church. I have not been attending regularly because of my depression. Which is totally not like me. I am a full time member! I know that my hormones had something to do with this, I got a period after 3 months without one. Sometimes I get so sick of feeling sick. I could kick my butt for letting myself get this big, for gaining back the 50 lbs I lost a years ago. But, I guess I didn't learn the lesson I was suppose to the 1st time around. Here we go again. I was reading Cammy over at Tippy Toe, and I like that she is so upbeat. She said that loosing weight was FUN. That's how I want to feel about weight loss. It has to be fun, or why continue. I have to be having a good time. I want to be having a good time.

My knee is sore this morning. I was up at 3 am with it really aching. I don't know, I guess I need the surgery. I am going to talk to my boss about it. Maybe there might be a way he can help me out. Things are really busy for him right now, so it might take me awhile (plus I need to gather up the courage ) to talk to him. I am continuing with my Seven Plus drink. It really has helped on so many levels. I would recomend it highly.

So what are my goals for this next week? TRACK TRACK TRACK! Water and MOVE. Make it fun, take some chances. Do something new........and enjoy it. Try to stay in the moment, make the best decisions that I can. Most important........GIVE MYSELF A BREAK. I am making progress. I am so much better then even a month ago.

Thanks to all who help support me and make this FUN. Have a good day!


  1. Likely the salt in the popcorn has your weight up a little but not to worry........you are doing great and I bet the weight will be back down next week for sure ;)

    I have a sore knee too so I can relate. I had been doing some new weight training with squats and I think that is what did it. Ouch!

  2. Glad to hear from you...and glad you are feeling better! I was missing you.

  3. Wooo hooo! What an important lesson to learn. That you can take yourself out of a situation and turn it around with walking and exercise! Great lesson!

    Sorry to hear about your sore knee!

  4. What a major change! To recognize that you could change things around thru something as simple as a walk was fantastic.

    Good luck with this weeks goals.

  5. You just keep on going...GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!

  6. I love your goals and I've set similiar ones myself! I struggle with depression too and it seems the best thing for me is to exercise, which is hard to do if you're feeling so blue! It often takes Herculean effort to get my butt into gear and it always seem to get me out of my funk.

    Today is a new day and I hope it will be a great day for you too!

  7. You're not the only one who misses church sometimes because of depression/anxiety. It makes no sense whatsoever, but I still do it.

    Just thought I'd share :)

  8. Your doing great girl. What a way to turn yourself around! That little bitty gain will come off next week and then some you wait and see! I like your goals for next week. Now get out there and make them happen! LOL! Jinx!


Tell me what you think!
