Clock Has Hopefully Been Reset

Hi Guys!  M.I.A much?  I have really good reasons for not posting: working A LOT, exercising, trying to get my head together, blah blah blah.  I really do feel like a broken record sometimes.  Okay, so let's get to it.  I did not weigh in last Tuesday but I did go to the meeting and it did help....very much.  The whole week has been very busy with work, social and family obligations and gym time.  So I didn't have too much time to spend thinking about my frustrations with weight. 

Then Saturday hit and my body decided that it didn't want to work for me anymore.  I guess that I exhausted myself with physical stress as well as emotional stress.  My appetite disappeared and I slept more than I have in a really long time.  I am feeling better now, not quite myself yet but I hope that having a day off today, which included a pedicure and facial, will help.  It's back to the grind tomorrow.  Two packed work days, a bday dinner, a friends musical and then an Oscar party on Sunday.  Please send me your good vibes and strength to keep on track this weekend.  I really don't want to derail myself....especially since I am down 5.2 lbs this week!!!!!!!!!  I almost tooted when they told me how much I was down on Tuesday!  That's only .8 (point eight) away from 30 pounds lost.  It has taken for freakin' ever. 

I started WW the end of May last year.  So in about three months it will be a year that I have been on the program.  I am struggling with feeling very frustrated with my progress.  I, of course, pictured myself at least 50-75lbs down around this time.  Don't get me wrong, I am proud of what I have accomplished but I also know that I wasn't as focused and diligent about my weight loss as I could have been.  In fact I sometimes feel that I have been a little lazy about it BUT then I remember how hard and long it takes to break bad life habits and create healthy new ones.  Are my mood swings as confusing for you as they are for me?

Okay, before I sign off I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all again for your amazing support, kind words and helpful suggestions.  I may not update often, or comment but I do read all of them and they mean so very much.  So big ole hugs and sloppy kisses to you!  :D

I Don't Know What To Say

Hey there folks.  I don't really have a lot to say for this post.  I am hugely discouraged with my past two weigh ins.  Tuesday of last week I was up 2lbs and this past Tuesday I was up .2 lbs (point two).  I have been exercising, cut back on the alcohol, practicing portion control, trying to eat intuitively etc. etc. etc.  I really don't know what is going on.  I'm thinking that it may be hormonal but I just don't know. 

So I have decided to skip my weigh in on Tuesday.  I will still attend the meeting (because I love them) but I will use my first ever no weigh pass.  I just can't stand the idea of seeing yet another gain while I am working so very hard.  So I am takin' a break!  I will concentrate on letting go of the feelings of anger and guilt, rejoice in the fact that I am smaller inches wise and I am down two pants sizes.  Thank You Zumba!

What do you folks do to reset your weight loss clock?
