I've really got to get back to WW. I got burned out when the scale wouldn't move for me, and just stopped logging my food. I think I've been making pretty healthy choices, and working in the yard has given me more exercise lately, but I'm not quite ready to step back on the scale and start logging yet.

 

I haven't given up - I'll be back!

Don't get discouraged. keep working towards a healthier you, no matter what the scale says.

 

I have gained 1/2 pound each week for the last three weeks. I think I have to make a bigger effort to get exercise. I don't deal well with heat, and its warming up here, and I hate the indoor exercise stuff. I hardly ever watch tv, but I think I'm going to have to find a video to watch while on the elliptical.

In the meantime, I still need to finish three afghan squares to get caught up.

ok joining in, I just bought a bunch of RH sunshine print at Michael's (it was on clearance for 99 cents I couldn't pass it up LOL) and I need to do something with it so since I want to lose about 30 pounds and I'm working on the "couch to 5k" program I'm going to combine the two, though I have no idea what ghan to make yet, headed to the library soon maybe I'll find a book with some inspiration, or I'll take any ideas you have ladies I just don't do squares LOL too many ends to weave in. I have 14 skeins of the yarn so plenty to work with

Thanks for the info Kelly, very interesting idea! I sort of did a similar thing on my own with hiking. I went from a very slow (and flat) 1 mile hike to my last hike which was almost 8 miles of 'rollercoaster' terrain (think difficult).

I'm hoping to finish it before we go on vacation so I can just be doing the final runs while we're gone, but then again things get in the way, I was supposed to run yesterday but my hip and knee were bothering me so i waited til today. I'm planning on running Tues and Thurs during the week but we may have company overnight that will have me pushing it back to Fri (which might work better bc I'm going to need to run Sun bc Sat is our big neighborhood garage sale, too many cars and people to run then)

Good morning everyone. Did you all have a good weekend?

 

I got a lot of crocheting done. Dh and I saw the new Star Trek movie. We loved it! But I was incredibly bad with my eating. :P So it's back to being healthy today. :yes

I was hoping to eat healthy today:)...BUT, we had a cookout yesterday and we have a lot of burgers, hot dogs, BBQ ribs, potato salad, corn on the cob, watermelon,etc. left over and I CAN'T let it go to waste.:lol

 

Maybe by tomorrow there won't be so much left over and I can make healthier choices.:xfin

 

I'm up 4 lbs.....I guess the plateau is over.

 

I hope everyone has a good week.

Hi,

I would love to join. I am not sure yet what I could make, but I will decide by Sun. That is my weigh in day. I have a lot of weight to lose so it should be pretty easy to pick a project. Maybe make a gift for christmas or something.

The joyful noise quilt is a great one.

 

No progress on my afghan. I have gained weight for 4 weeks in a row, despite eating well and exercising. I' a little discouraged but I will keep trying.

I'm right there with you Cindy. It feels ages since I lost weight and worked on my 'ghan. I feel like I'm back in my old rut of gaining and losing the same 5 lbs. over and over again.
