This is some lifelong struggle! Keep at it. That's all we can do. If we don't, we just get bigger and bigger and bigger!

There is no way in hell I'm going any farther up! It seems I've been holding at about 165 (give or take) with no effort one way or the other. Today, however, 167ish is just not for real. I feel very unfit despite jogging consistently. I did my measurements 7.19 and since last October, I'm up about 5 inches overall. Yuk!

I have a pair of Size 10 shorts (and I use that size loosely--haha--I'd say they're actually 12s if I were sizing them myself!). I'd like to be able to wear them comfortably in the near term. Well, I can get into them and even zip and button them, but they're not comfy.

On the jogging and shoes: I had some shoes (Saucony) that were just not the greatest (okay for long walks) after I had worn them a few times. I quit wearing them and switched to really an even worse pair for me. Then I kept meaning to go get a pair of my old standby Brooks. Dragged my feet and went back to the old Sauconys temporarily. Well, I developed this funny ankle thing. Not painful--even when jogging, but sort of like something shifts and clicks on the outside every now and then. Doesn't do the clicking thing while I'm jogging. It's not swollen. It's not getting any worse either. I've never even sprained my ankle.

So I'm just watching it and have gotten a pair of my old standbys. I'm only jogging 2 days in a row as of late. Especially since I feel like crap at this weight. Unfit crap! July 25th marked 3 years since I started jogging. Gotta lose some of this!

I don't know how it got to be August (or July) for crying out loud.

Cheers to you all!

Hi biscottibody,

Love your Laws of Chocolate. So true!

Shoes can be tricky. I read somewhere that one should change one's running shoes regularly and mine are starting to come apart a little so I'll probably have to do that soon. I'm worried it could throw me off (probably because I'm always looking for any excuse to laze around instead!).

My weight has been going up too and it's very disheartening. But we'll keep at it!


geevee on 08/03/2005:
It's been a long time, Biscotti. It's good to hear from you again. I share the same predicament that you do, that of wallowing at the same weight for months on end. I'm not starting my 8th month of going nowhere. I sure would like to know how to leave this plateau and make some progress again. Maybe someone out there has the key to help us.


Soon2BThin on 08/03/2005:
I know that you know how important a good pair of shoes is to your activity. And I haven't a clue what is happening with your ankle. I hope things get better. Oh, and those shorts, I understand the thing with the size---why can't they all go by the same measurements or something? I'm doing well this week. So come on and join me, okay? You can do it!

I hope things are okay with you. You are missed here. I'm typing this on Friday, July 1. Are you coming back? And, as I said, I hope everything is okay with you. When people disappear, I tend to worry that something may have happened. Please drop in and let us know.

I'm down 1.5 pounds on my weigh-in last week. I forgot to weigh last Tuesday, so I did it last Friday morning. I've been keeping my food diary in my little notebook, but not using Fitday. Until this past Tuesday.

If I've said it once, I've said it a thousand times; I feel much better doing weight training regularly than not! Yesterday's was the first since April 29th. My legs are sore, but I already feel energized. If you're in your 30s and up, I highly recommend regular weight training.

I skipped the 12-min test knowing it would just be worse than the last. So I've rescheduled it.

**I have a 12-min test scheduled for 6.27.05**

Cheers to you all!

You know what Biscottibody ... while I was out walking on my lunch hour, a profound thought entered my beautiful mind. I wondered at the time who it was meant to be shared with. Guess what kid, you're the winner: "Even if you're walking backwards, as long as you're walking in the right direction, you'll get where you're trying to go."

This journey definitely gets tough and we definitely take all kinds of stops and turns along the way but, just keep going. Just keep going. cu


Jennifer68 on 06/02/2005:
I was wondering where ya were! Lol, welcome back to the fold you little lost sheep! Glad you realized you were slipping!~ its so much easier with your sisters helping to move you along the track. When I don't want to budge they get all pushy and make me move my rump. Thank God they do!!! Come on~ lets go. We have bodies to make gorgeous. Jen
