Weigh In - 580

The weight continues to come off. I believe it is due to three things: 1) portion control, 2) no binging, 3) little to no take out. These are coming about half because we simply can't afford large amounts of food or take out and half due to my decisions. Eventually I'm going to need to put more effort into exercising on a consistent basis. Even though I've lost 40 pounds in the last few months, I'm not physically feeling the difference.

It is just so hard to exercise. Getting my butt up off the couch alone can be an exercise of sheer willpower. Then I walk around the house until I am out totally out of breath - about two minutes - and collapse back onto the couch. I know that in the long run that it will be worth it. But dang, does it have to be SO hard? Maybe I need to bring it down to one minute of walking to start.

There has been a death in the family and my husband has lost his temp job. We found out on the same day, within the same hour. It sent us reeling. My fourteen-year-old nephew's heart stopped during a severe asthma attack. He died on the street in front of his father' s house. Life is so fragile and so precious. Hug your loved ones today and tell them that you love them. You never know.

Things are looking a little bit up as the agency called the next day and said they had a possible job starting on Tuesday. It is better pay, with overtime and a much higher probability of him being hired on permanently. It is my slim hope that this comes through. It will mean he lost his other job just so something better could come about. I hope. I hope.


  1. Congrats on the weigh in. That's awsome!

    I hope your Husband finds work soon. I am also unemployed, it's tough and I hate it. Do as much as you can moving around your house. It ALL counts and it will build your strength!

    I have formulated my plan for the Turkey Day! Have you? I will NOT be making my trigger food...stuffing. Turkey and defatted gravy is low calorie. I like gravy over chopped broccoli! LOL I loved it even before eating lower carb. DO well and have a great weigh in!

  2. That's a lot of life-altering information to take in all at once. Wow. Congratulations on the progress, by the way - and for maintaining your motivation despite the sometimes seemingly insurmountable odds and life events that can be overwhelming at times. Hang in there, trooper! :]
