No weigh-in this week. No point. Haven't done sh*t to further my cause. And I can tell, I feel like a blob. Not only have I not been keeping my eye on the ball--I've lost the ball and almost don't know where to start looking for it. I'm as near panic as I've been in 10 years. I resist beating myself up, but you reap what you sow!

Note to self: Interrupt the blobness of it all as often as possible.

I'm up a half-pound on my weigh-in this week!

I'm sort of at a crossroads with things--much like when I first found DDs and proceeded to try to lose weight, worked very hard, lost 25 pounds initially and have kept off all but a few pounds of that consistently over the years. That is so long ago now that it seems like another person did that--not exaggerating there!

I owe alot of that initial push to feeling very unhealthy and how I saw my life going as a consequence of being fat and unfit, at least as I remember it now. I'm sort of there now again, except now I'm sure the stress and choices I've made the last few years have affected me in ways I'll never know.

This is one of those times when I have to hold up my hand and just say, "STOP!" Stop the excess along with stopping letting people get to me. And as far as events, to make a long story short, I think I've lost some ability to judge when not to get involved--with the actual event or even to discuss things.

I can't fix other people's stuff. It's okay to listen, but not at the expense of "fixing" my own stuff FIRST! Not fixing because it's too painful to think about. I'm deeply entrenched in ignoring myself and my feelings a little too often. I seem to have developed the habit of putting myself on the backburner at a time when I can least afford it.

So much of this may not make sense, but in my head (and much of this is unconscious) there isn't another explanation. I'm still sorting it out. Distraction is good, but I think I've distracted myself into a little bit of a nutjob--though I think it's not to late to work it out.

It's going to take some work, just like losing those initial pounds I've kept off all these years!

I can relate to alot of your struggles with being a listener and not a "fixer". Sometimes...I have learned that in the end when someone comes to you with a problem they don't want to be fixed, they just want someone to listen. So the best thing you could do for them is listen and end the conversation with a warm hug. Thats it!! Then take a few quiet moments to yourself...breathe, and say outloud something your thankful for. Focusing on the positive keeps you going in a positive direction.

I'm down a few pounds on my weigh-in this week. No measurements.

I'm at it again. I think my lack of consistent and challenging aerobic activity of late has proven to bite me in the derriere. Walking is fine, but I've passed on that too often since the heat went away. (I'd rather walk in the heat.) That and a too-fatty diet. I owe it to myself to get on the ball. Do it and not come here week after week and talk about it. I'm boring the hell out of myself:-)

For my activity:
Circ Aer Wkt using NordicTrack (18 min/4.0 mi); Walk 10 min

All planned activity done yesterday--whew! I was beginning to think I couldn't do this anymore--it had been 24 days since my last wt trng workout. And I went down in dumbbell wt--from 17.5 to 15 pounds.

It's not that the workout was hard, I just was fighting the urge to blow it off again. And I drank a fair amount of water:-)

sometimes it's better going down in weight, if it'll help you do more! :)


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/20/2009:
down in weight meaning down in dumbell weights. :-)

Didn't weigh-in today--I'm either up a little or down a little--it matters not--I'll get back to it next Tuesday.

Last week was just so shot to hell. It's important for me to do the picking myself up, dusting myself off and starting all over again (as the song goes:-) so I can give myself a chance to get my head out. And not just out, but to feel productive.

As for the wt trng, I'm going to have to go down in dumbbell wt today!

For my weigh-in last week I was down--this week I'm up. Even though it seems a little too obsessive for me, I intend to get back to and stay with the original schedule of wt trng, so I've scheduled three below. Last week just sucked in so many ways--what can I say;-)

To attempt to avoid having another week like that I think I'll risk a little obsessiveness, thank you very much--haha!

For me it's not overeating/bingeing or even eating too much chocolate or too many sweets, though I did choose to eat a single-dip hot fudge sundae over actual dinner last night. I truly think my downfall is consistently making choices that aren't overwhelmingly "healthy."
