Darn Scale!

Well, I am disappointed to report that I gained weight this week. It was only 0.6 pounds but it was still a gain. I am a little frustrated because I stuck to the plan and didn’t really do anything different than I did last week. I knew it wasn’t a good week though because I just didn’t feel right. I’m not sure how to explain it; it was just the way I felt. I’m sure the unemployment stress didn’t help! I will not let this discourage me however because I understand that there are going to be “down” weeks and that I will not always lose weight every week. This is a life change and it is going to take work and time and I am in it for the long haul. This just means I need to work a little harder this week so I can hit my 10 pound mark in my 4th week. If I could lose 10 pounds a month, that’d be awesome!

I bought a Punch workout today with weighted boxing gloves and a DVD workout. It is a Weight Watchers product and I have heard good things about it. I have always wanted to do boxing or kick-boxing so I think this will be a good start. It will give me a little variety so I don’t get bored with the treadmill.

I had a wonderful day today with my dear friend Jamie. We shopped and went to lunch and just talked like we always do. It is so very easy to talk to Jamie about any and everything which makes getting together so much fun and relaxing.

I have a bunch of homework to do because I procrastinated this week and didn’t do much at all. So I am off to get a start on some of it and I will finish up tomorrow.

Have a Healthy Day!


  1. Way to stick with it! You have a great attitude and I'm sure you will be successful because of it.

  2. And you are my dear friend!! Thanks so much for Saturday - it meant a lot that we could hook up! We should do that more often! Doesn't help that I moved and then you moved too.. LOL! We always have the net to keep us going!

    Keep up the faith! You are making a life change, you aren't going for a fast cure. It will come off! And I didn't have much to report either!! EEK! I think my "night out" wasn't the best option for the waist line! But I'm not giving up either. A minor set back to make me work harder again!
