Thick or Thin Thursday

I weigh the same and I am losing interest. I can not walk due to the torrential rains we are having here. I can not count calories, hate it. I can not count points either. I can not stop eating. I can not get past the five pound loss. I can not get motivated. I can not....I can not give up.

Julie's Friday Weigh-In

Yes, its been a while since I've posted. The family and I had a fabulous week with the Scotsman visiting. Of course, that meant eating lots of good food too (like Lauri's cake and ice creammmmm). On the up side, we did some walking at Monticello, on the Mall in DC, etc. Fun, fun times! Today's weigh-in has me down 5.2 lbs!!!!! That's over two weeks though. My current weight loss total is exactly 11 lbs. May it be 11 lbs I never, ever see again! You know what this means, don't you, Julie? It means that exercise does make a difference. Yep.

Thick or Thin Thursday

I weighed this morning and got three different weights on my digital scales. Is that a sign of the batteries crashing? I pulled out the ol'spring ones and according to them, I weigh the same as last week. I am okay with that, because although I have been walking, I have been eating terribly. I think a lot of my overeating was PMS eating. I crave the craziest things during that time. I also tend to gain water weight and it seems to get worse as I get older. Greeeeeeeat.

Anyway, my weight has not changed and today is a new day. I will continue to walk, but will start my food journal or journey, again. I am really sucking at this folks. Wish me luck.

What's Happening

to us and our blog? I feel like we are not pulling our weight here, no pun intended, well, maybe a little. I have sucked the last week myself at not counting points or calories, but on the good side, walking on a regular basis. I have got to do better. I am going nowhere fast. I am just spinning my wheels and wasting precious time. I am going to weigh Thursday, as always, but I am starting over tomorrow. I have got to do this. I need to do this. Help.

Blimey, no Weigh In Today for Jules....

she playing hostess with the mostess to an amazing Scotsman named Martin. Julie, hubby and kids have been wining, dining and havering so much so, she is a wee bit frightened of the scales. The las will be back next week though, so stay tuned.

Thick or Thin Thursday

I weighed, down a teeny tiny bit, .2 pounds, why bother.

I have been walking pretty regularly this week, two miles a day! It doesn't do much good if you have been eating CRAP. I am going to keep up the walking, but get back to counting the points. It really makes a difference and I just need to accept the fact I gotta do it. Next week, maybe I will be down a whole pound! Dieting and birth, the only time you count the ounces!


PS-Lordy, have you tried the Pumpkin Spice Latte's at StarBucks? HEAVEN!

Julie - A Day Late...

but not a pound short! I missed weigh-in day yesterday, so I'm posting it this morning. I have actually gained 0.6 lb! Ugh! It has been a tough week with the kids getting back to school, getting up in what feels like the middle of the night and all the new activities starting. I actually fell off the wagon about counting my calories early last week week and never restarted but today I shall! There may be many inspirational weight loss blogs out there but THIS blog is firmly rooted in the reality of how hard it is to focus on the weight loss in the middle of your life happening! I'm not losing heart though.

Thick or Thin Thursday

Okay, okay it is going to be a good day, a thin day! I weighed this morning and I am down 2.2 lbs! It must be a fluke. I am down a total of 5.2 pounds. Whoopie!! I will take it.

On a side note, SMM please send me your mailing address. You won the ideal sweetener coupon. I have tried to contact you, but nothing. If I do not here from ya soon I will have to give it someone else. Boohoo.

Have a great day folks. Beth

Julie's Friday Weigh-In

To round (ahem) out the week, I stayed the same. So, all three of us girls held steady. I may sound like a broken record, but planning is my nemesis. SMM thank you for the calorie counter link you added to the comments. It came in with a higher number than I was going by. In case anyone missed it Have a great weekend everyone!!

Thick or Thin Thursday

Good grief! I weigh exactly the same as last week. I have been doing this now for a good month and I am going nowhere fast. This is ridiculous. I didn't keep track of my points this week and it shows. I need to exercise, too. I did do some walking over the weekend while we were camping, in fact, I thought I would die! You can read all about it over at You Know What You Oughta Do.

Julie and I have a little promise going, when we loose ten pounds we are off to get a pedicure. Well, at this rate I might see one for the new year....of 2012!

I suck.
