Misery loves company

I didn't weigh myself this morning because I ate so much yesterday and just generally felt miserable with life.

THEN my husband lost his job today.

Like can anything go right? Ever?

Same ol' same ol'

Today's weight was the same as last week's: 235.

Sure, I could have done things differently, but I feel like I'm actually eating less and moving more so the slow weight loss is really frustrating.

I guess I should be happy with that number since I started my period yesterday.

Now I'm off to do some yoga!

That's better

Today's weigh in was 235.  That's 1 pound down from the first of the year, but 1.5 pounds down from last week.

When I was in my 20s, I could easily lose a pound every couple of days.

Ahh, to be young again.

Anyway, I'm happy to see the scale go in the right direction.

Not the sharpest tool in the shed

I woke up and had a cup of coffee, like normal.  I took a shower and brushed my teeth, like normal.

THEN I REALIZED IT'S MONDAY!  I forgot to weigh in and any real dieter knows that the only weigh in that counts is the one first thing in the morning, completely naked, after using the bathroom, before consuming a single drop of anything.

I went ahead and stepped on the scale and it said 237, which is .5 of a pound up from last week.  But it's also with a belly full of coffee and wet hair.

What fresh hell is this?

I weighed in this morning and gained half of  a pound. Can you believe that?  I've actually been tracking my food and exercising a bit.

Ugh, stupid body.

I notice that in my last post I said weigh in day was Tuesday, but that's wrong.  It's Mondays.  Maybe next Monday will be better.

I'm hoping today's crappy weigh in is because I couldn't poop this morning.  Let's go with that...

Blank Slate

Today's weigh in was 236.

Let us move on.

I took some pictures, please excuse the mess and the dirty mirror.  I plan to clean today, I swear.

I should have asked my husband to take the pictures because the angle is all weird on these.  I'll have to do some better ones in another post.

Do you notice how I'm starting to get knock-kneed?  It's my right knee that bends inward.  Luckily it's still slight at this point, but it is worrisome.  I assume this is related to being so overweight for so long?  I'm not having any pain yet (KNOCK ON WOOD....REAL WOOD), but I know that things like this only get worse with age.

There will never be a thigh gap for me...hahah.

I've found a good YouTube video by a physical therapist that gives exercises, mostly stretches, to help reduce knock-knees.  I'm hoping this will help my legs.  Oh yeah, I'm also hoping that losing weight will help my legs.

So I guess Tuesdays will be my weigh in day from now on.   I'm feeling motivated!
