I last went to the nutritionist on 12/1 and I’m not due again until 1/13 so I figured I’d weigh myself in between.
Since June 10, I’ve lost 32.5 pounds.
Since Labor Day, I’ve lost 30.5 pounds
I wish you could see the big grin on my face today!
I’m going to set a new goal: Lose another 30 lbs…because this one is DONE!
I met with the nutritionist today. She’s almost as excited as I am…
Since June 10, I’ve lost 28.8 pounds.
Since Labor Day, I’ve lost 26 pounds
Not only is this goal within reach, I’m anxious to set it for another 30!!
I had my monthly visit to my nutritionist on Monday. Eventhough I started there in mid-June and lost a little, I gained some of it back. She’s tracking my weight loss from June, I’m tracking it from September 2 when I got my act together.
Since June 10, I’ve lost 22.5 pounds.
Since Labor Day, I’ve lost 20 pounds.
She gave me a big gold star which I wore proudly on my coat.
I am 2/3 of the way there and I actually think I can meet this goal soon. I’m not putting a time frame on it…just taking it one day at a time. But….yeah!!
Another 2 weeks gone; another 3 pounds gone.
It’s 15 lbs since Labor Day (7 weeks)
Sounds like 1/2 way to me…..
I met with the nutritionist Monday…4 weeks since my last “official” check in.
I’m down 15 lbs since my first visit with her.
It’s 12 1/2 since Labor day (5 weeks).
I’m just cruising along….
Tuesday night when I went to spin class, I said hi to S, the nutrionist. I didn’t have an appt but she’d sent me an email the day before so we chatted a bit. We talked about food (what else?) and exercise (she teaches the spin class on Weds nights but I go Tues).
She asked if I wanted to check in on her scale. I got on the scale at home once last week – no change. I was fine with that: it wasn’t down but it’s also not up! I figured it was worth another look…I hopped on and bingo – down 2.3 lbs.
Big smile on both our faces.
I met with the nutritionist yesterday. I hadn’t been there for awhile- vacations, work, life got in the way. I discussed the recent changes I’ve made in my eating and my focus. She’s good with it all with a few modifications, which I’ll work on. Blood pressure is up a bit but nothing major. We reviewed my recent lab work – a few things also went up that should go down. When I talked about my lack of exercise, poor eating in August, she matched it up to what went up and it’s all related. No surprise there. Then the big test – the scale. Since the last visit at the end of June, I lost another 6 lbs. She was happy and so was I. She didn’t see it but due to the little “detour” last month, I gained a few lbs but since Labor Day, I’ve lost it plus more. That brings the total to 11 lbs in about 13 weeks. I’m fine with that number. And it will keep going down.
I go back again on 10/6 to see her. I’d like to try to stay off the scale until then, but I’m not sure I can resist if I think it’ll be a positive number. We shall see.
Short and sweet – I’m back on track.
I see the nutrionist and the trainer tomorrow.
All is good again – and it will STAY that way.
I haven’t gotten on the scale since the Dr but I don’t need to. I can feel it in my clothes. I can feel it in my mood. And it’s not good.
I was out of sorts for a week, then angry last week. When speaking with M, she said I was trying to use food to comfort myself about something, but it wasn’t working. S says I’m punishing myself for something. Geez-everyone’s got an opinion but no one can tell me what set me off….except me. And I’m clearly not talking….
I had a doctor appointment today(all is well). After taking BP, it was time for the scale. We all know dr’s scales make you heavier (!) so I was cool that I weighed 2 lbs more than my scale. I asked the nurse what I weighed at my last visit. She said I am 2 lbs more today than May ‘07. What? How can that be? Thinking back over the year: I had gained last summer but lost before my high school reunion in October. I gained after that, but lost before my niece’s Bat Mitzvah in March. I gained after that but just recently lost 9 (now 8) lbs. See a pattern here? After all of that effort and yo-yo poundage – I’m only 2 lbs more!
I lose when I’m focused on an event but afterwards, I don’t maintain it. Five years ago, I was 50 lbs heavier than I am now. 4 years ago, I was down almost 80 lbs. Then I quit smoking, and gained 20+. And I’ve been struggling ever since.
Yes, I’m very happy I’m still down 50+ but I need to figure out how to get rid of at least that 20 and keep it off! I can’t keep yo-yo’ing.
