Up, Down and All Around

I feel like I'm at a standstill with my weight loss. I had some good losses then gained again this week. I'm only one pound ahead from a month ago. Meh. I'll keep plugging away. I had such great losses a few months ago and now it's come to almost a near stop. I'm frustrated. It just peeled away and now... nothing. Nada. Zilch.

Since my husband has been out of work, I haven't been able to go to the rehab pool as we simply couldn't afford the fees, as low as they were. But I am blessed by being a member of a wonderful church and they have generously donated the money for me to go again. I can't wait to get back in the pool.

It's been a rough few weeks emotionally, but I've managed to not have one binge. Not ONE binge since I started on this new weight loss journey in May. Did you hear that? NOT ONE! That is one success I have to give myself a pat on the back for. Now if it would just show on the (*^(*^$(*^@@# scale!


  1. I'm glad you're keeping strong about not binging. Good job! :) And it sounds like you have a wonderful community as well...


  2. NOT ONE BINGE SINCE MAY!!! WHOOHOO!!! That is absolutely amazing...really great. You should be VERY proud of yourself, seriously!!

    Man, when you get back in the pool...that is going to make all the difference. I just got in yesterday for the first time in probably a year. It felt great. I used to always swim with a snorkle because I never learned how to properly lap swim..breathing and all. Well, yesterday the lifeguard...a kind, middle-aged (like me) woman, gave me some instruction and after awhile it started to work! We are never to old to learn!! And to do things we have never done before...I fully believe you will do that tri-atholon and I'm hoping to do one too! :-) Jodi

  3. No binging is something to be very proud of .... along with 160 pounds gone! It is so wonderful to have supportive friends that have enabled you to go back to the pool. I am sure that will make you feel better and get things moving again. Kudos for staying with the program. I am rooting for you!

  4. Keep going and very best of luck to you. what an amazing achievement not to have binged in so long, despite such worries. You can prove yourself strong and able to achieve your goal. So many people are wishing you and yours all the very best of love and luck

  5. Hi Morphy.

    I have to admit, as someone who's never struggled with weight I can make some fairly snap judgments when it comes to people who are morbidly obese. But I've just read your blog from start to finish and you've really given me a new perspective. I had no idea how hard it could be not just to lose the weight but to overcome the emotional issues that got you there to begin with.

    You really are doing great and I'm truly rooting for you. You WILL lose that weight!

  6. a random google brought me to your blog. just reading through the posts, seeing the progress you've made, reading about how you feel... it makes me feel like there's hope for everyone. i think you underestimate how good your attitude is, how strong you're being. this process is clearly not easy yet you're sticking with it and seeing results; you're doing it for the right reasons and i sincerely hope you achieve everything you hope to, no matter how long it takes. i sincerely believe that you'll break the 500 pound barrier soon and i applaud you in advance for this. keep up the good work.

  7. Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. It means a lot as this plateau keeps going and going and going...
