For a Sunday weigh-in I was down 2.5 pounds. I weighed in yesterday and I'm down an additional 2 pounds. I'm sure it's mostly water, but I also haven't had my usual appetite lately. And to be honest I have drastically curtailed my nighttime eating. In fact when I eat this new way I'm much less hungry first thing in the morning than if I ate before bedtime.

Didn't do BF again, below is from 11.15.

I totally agree with you about inactivity. I was fine a few years ago as long as I was swimming a mile a day and doing yoga 6-7 times a week. Was I firm and feeling good! Then the Biltmore raised its rates, the water was too cold for me in Nov. and that was the end of my success story. You know, I even used to go to the gym there and use most of the machines, .

Exercise really helped me a lot. I can't imagine doing any right now with my bum arthritic knee swollen and acting up. And I just had it drained the middle of October. I hope it's not the medicine I'm taking not being effective any more because the next one would be methyl trexate. I don't like that idea at all.

Anyway, congrats on dropping the few pounds. I always feel energized when that happens.

Happy Thanksgiving! Though it's so much like any other day--excluding the family angst should you be so lucky to spend it with them. I find it appalling that stores will be whoring for shoppers, who will mostly just be buying more crap they simply don't need. Not to mention their employees not getting the day off. Sad! Fortunately I remember when things were different--that makes me old and narrow-minded--hey, I'll wear it proudly!

For my weekly weigh-in this past Tuesday I'm down 2.5 pounds. The above excessive driving is probably the reason my weight is down. I forget how much Fitday counts calories burned while driving, but if I add that to my sleep deprivation for those days, it's easy to see why I'm down a few pounds. I'm just now feeling caught up on sleep and it's been a struggle.

Note to self: Not getting good and regular exercise is not good for my sleep patterns!

Below is my BF--from 2 Sundays ago. I will be doing this on Tuesdays, though not this past Tuesday.

Donkey on 11/27/2009:
Inspirational as always, biscotti! I couldn't have said it best about the Black Friday shopping blitz. OMGosh, the advertisments -- ridiculous. Some stores were open from 5p-9p on Thanksgiving Day!

Let's get back on track together!


geevee on 11/28/2009:
Hi Biscotti - Just wanted to say how glad I was to find you still on DD's. I'm back again after almost reaching my original FAT weight. I felt too fat to come back then so I started in earnest again and over 6 mos. lost 11 lbs. The clincher was fitting into a pair or jeans my daughter gave me for Xmas last year which I couldn't get into until 2 days ago! That was enough incentive to face reality.

And so the quest continues.

I did get my Circuit Workout done on Thursday. It had been 29 days since the last one and that one was 24 days since the last one--not a great track record.

I'm having some challenges healthwise. I would like to go into detail, but until I know a little more, I'll resist. Sometimes everything piles up and eventually it has to come tumbling down, that's pretty much what I think happened--it's a huge wake-up call if nothing else.

I'm up a half-pound on my weigh-in. Below is my BF--I will be doing this each Tuesday after today. The BF and W:H ratio are both down ever so slightly.

The jogging above was just around the house--nearly in place. I have to start somewhere. I feel like I've really let myself go physically the last 3 months. As for actual jogging, it's probably been months and that was probably just once.

I'll check the BF again on Sunday. It only requires four measurements, then I'll check it on Tuesdays thereafter.

I am at the same place - with a back injury I have let myself go with regard to exercise and I must remember to start small. Well, at this point - at least START! Keep up the good work. I can tell you are getting on a roll with this!!!

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!

hotmomma on 11/01/2009:
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:-)
