Weekly Weigh In Saturday 1/21/12

3/31/11 Starting Weight 378
10/6/11 Surgery Weight 313
1/15/12 Last Weight 274.2
1/21/12 Current Weight 269.6

I am in the 260's!  Woot woot!  I think my mini goal of 267 by 2/2 is attainable.  Although I have been sick and haven't exercised since Wednesday, so that could slow some things down.  I had a fill on Monday and just started eating solids.  So hard to tell how well it is working because everything is so out of whack with having an upper respiratory infection.  My boyfriend has been laid up for weeks with an ear infection, sinus infection, and as of last week bronchitis as well.  Welcome to the sick house!  I think I jinxed myself because I kept saying how I usually am the one to get sick and give it to him, but I hadn't gotten sick yet.  Well that came back to bite me in the butt big time!
I am STILL catching up on reading blogs.  I am up to Jan 13.  A few people tagged me, and I plan to answer the questions, but after I catch up...which could take some time.  I promise not to tag anyone else, since I am so late to the party.  
I had an interesting encounter the other day at the Shop Rite.  The woman behind me in line asked me if I would be interested in a free session with a personal trainer.  I had been thinking about a personal trainer, because I have no idea what I'm doing at the gym if it isn't the water classes.  I said sure, what to lose.  Of course this was before I got sick.  I did meet with her on Friday and set up a time for next Saturday, so we shall see.  She seems nice enough, but she sure can talk! 
Okay, that is all I have for now.  Another boring post from Beth!

Weekly Weigh In Sunday 1/15/12

3/31/11 Starting Weight 378
10/6/11 Surgery Weight 313
1/7/12 Last Weight 275.4
1/15/12 Current Weight 274.2

Can't believe I'm down a pound, as again I struggled this week.  I got in some exercise, but the volume of food I can and want to eat is out of control.  I definitely need the fill I'm getting tomorrow!  Life has been a bit overwhelming lately, work is stressful, my boyfriend is sick as a dog, and I feel not enough time in the day to exercise and make healthy food.

Anyway, I had set myself a goal of being at 267 for my birthday 2/2.  I am still going to strive for it, but it looks to be in jeopardy at the moment.  Maybe after my fill I'll be able to achieve my goal.  Okay, I'll stop whining for now!  Have a great day everyone!

Weekly Weigh In Saturday 1/7/12 Posted on Sunday

3/31/11 Starting Weight 378

I'm behind in blog world, and although I did weigh myself on Saturday, this is the first chance I'm getting to post.  I'm also way behind in reading posts, but I will catch up!  Probably won't be doing a lot of commenting though, since I'm so behind.

I'm amazed that I actually lost weight since last weigh in.  I only did things right 4 out of the 7 days, so I was expecting the same or worse.  The holidays are completely over now, so no more excuses!  I'm back on my game, eating better and exercising more.  Still not getting as much exercise as I should, but more is better than none.

I have an appointment with my surgeon's office on 1/16 to get a fill.  I can eat way too much food, and not just slider type stuff.  At this point I barely feel a restriction, so I'm not getting the full benefit of my tool.  Hopefully the fill goes well and I find a good restriction.  I don't want to be too restricted and need an unfill like I've read so many bloggers have had. 

Work has been stressful, and I'm trying to make sure I don't stress eat, like I usually do.  Thankfully there isn't a lot of food around these days, other than the healthy stuff I bring in.  At my work they tend to reward with food....take this survey and here is a candy bar, associate appreciation day have some cookies, let's have cake for this month's birthdays, etc.  We have a wellness manager for the last year or so.  I stopped him in the hall the other day and asked if anyone had said anything to him about our food reward system.  He did mention that he tries to make sure they have healthy options along with the indulgences, but that I make a good point.  I suggested that they give away pens, stress balls, or rewards points towards something instead.  I know food is such a big part of our American culture, and it is also a huge part of our work culture, but something has to change.  As a food addict I know if you put a candy bar on my desk I will eat it, whether I like it or not!

Okay, I've rambled enough for one post.  Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
