Back under 2

leave a comment »

So I was recently under 200lbs. Boy was a stoked!

But, I was almost to close and kind of relaxed a bit. It was insanely hot, I had 2 ear infections in 2 weeks and then went on vacation

I went on vacation. I drank wine and beer. I ate bread. I had cheese burgers. I ate desserts. I didn’t work out for a month.

I hoped on the scale after all of this and it said 202.6. Yup, I had gained about 4 pounds in a month. Eeep. I’ve been to 2 Weight Watchers meetings since I came home on the 14th.

Back to reality… I’m eating my normal everyday fare and walking my 2.5 miles about every other day, pushing myself twice this week to do 5 miles.

As of this moment in time I am back at 199.6.

This feels good and I’m staying back on track. I can’t wait to be at 195, 5 pounds away from 200 will make me feel safer.

Ooof.

Last week was a gross one…

I had a really bad ear ache for 3 days last week. I finally went to the doctor and asked for some antibiotics. I had a ear infection in my right ear. How do people in their 30s get ear infections? Antibiotics plus probiotics = maintaining gut health, I hope. First antibiotics in 2 and 1/2 years.

Seattle had a day or 2 this week that wee up in the 90s. Eep. I don’t have the right kind of clothes or mindset for that. We retreated to the basement with food from a taco truck or easy to eat foods.  Oh, and all of our fans and extension cords…

I go on vacation in 2 plus weeks. I can’t wait to get away. Wow, this means that summer is almost over. Time sure does run away when you aren’t looking or paying attention.

Last week we gained a pound or two.. I’m only really guessing at this point. Feeling like crap and taking meds really seems to have a strange effect on my body. I plan on exercising this week, last week I didn’t, and track all of my points.

Happy Sunday to you!

Smallest gain possible… how is that possible?

So.

Last week we ate everything in sight. Bread. A lot of alcohol one night. At least 5 or so pieces of cheesecake over the weekend, (I had to try all 4 of the flavors, no?). We didn’t exercise a drop. We went to 2 gatherings in 2 days and came home with a sore back from so much sitting. Yep, we’re on Weight Watchers but who knew?! We count points, no way?! Last week, after using up all of my extra weekly points in something like 2 days if not less… I decided I’d take the week off and own up to what the scale said.

I was expecting a big weight gain, something like 2 or 3 pounds. I made it under 200 at the end of June and was pretty stoked about it… but I also kept in mind that I had been sick a week or so prior and not had any sort of appetite for 3 days as well.

So yesterday I got all ready to go to my weigh in… and I stepped on the scale. It said 199.4.

Um, yeah, I ate like a cow and I only gained .2 pounds? I ate all that cheese cake and only gained a tenth of a pound? How can that be?! And that was at 4:30p, after I had eatten a breakfast and some sort of lunch stuff. But, my leader said I might not have a significant gain this week but, it could show up next week instead.

We’re going to try our hardest to make sure that that doesn’t happen.
