Figures

I was up 1.8 pounds on the scale today. That puts me at 210.2 pounds. I am not surprised. I need to really make an effort this week to stay on program.

Well, That Was TERRIBLE

I went for a 5K today at 10 AM. Since I have been SUPER stressed (home stuff, unemployment, etc.) AND since I have been eating everything not (and) nailed down this week, I felt like I had to do SOMETHING. … Continue reading

Huh?

Down, 1.2 pounds this week – which is amazing considering what I ate some of the time. This erases the last week and puts me back at 208.4 pounds, down 11 over all.

Up

Up 1.2 pounds this week on the scale. Not a shocker. I have not really been tracking all that much.

How Did That Happen?

It was not a good week. I caved and got a (22 point) brownie on Friday night. Then I took the family out to eat on Saturday and I over did it with a burger and fries. I doubled that, … Continue reading

Not Happy

I was only down 1.2 pounds this week. How? I really followed the program. In total, now, in 3 weeks, I have lost 9.8 pounds. That’s great. But, I lost most of that in the first week. They had me … Continue reading

Huh?

Lost one pound this week. That’s it. Puts me at a total of 8.6 pounds lost over two weeks (since going back to Weight Watchers). Overall number is 210.8 – which is at least 25 pounds too much. Hopefully the … Continue reading

Week One Is Always Fun

I lost 7.6 pounds in my first week back at Weight Watchers. Having a little stomach flu this week also helped. That puts me at 211.8 pounds. Still, way, way, overweight. I still need to lose between 27 and 40 … Continue reading

Weight Watchers – Take 4

I signed up for Weight Watchers today. I had to do it. Things are out of control. Good timing, by chance. It was four years ago today, to the very day, that I lost my Weight Watchers Lifetime status – … Continue reading

215.5

That’s the number on the scale today. Not shocking considering how much crap I ate over the holidays. Now is the time to do something. I am even considering going back to Weight Watchers – once the New Year’s gang … Continue reading

Something, Better Than Nothing

I went for a 5K run before lunch today. First time in 9 days. Layoff extended due to family obligations and my arm which is killing me – so bad that it keeps me up at night, aching. Got to … Continue reading

“Some” Progress

Scale last week was 215. This morning, it was 211.2 pounds. That’s better than nothing or a gain. Still haven’t been able to run again. Way too cold outside and my arm is killing me – which is not a … Continue reading

Perspective

I went for a 5K run before lunch today. It was interesting – and it hurt to have my arm bent while running. I made it to 1.37 miles before having to break down into the alternating walk/jog. And, it … Continue reading

Two Days Later

212.8 on the scale this morning after a busy day yesterday where I had little time to eat, much less snack.  That’s down a lot, in two days.  Staying busy is important.

Beyond Rock Bottom

Well, I am now 55.   And, when I look back to where I was when I has 50, it’s beyond depressing. When I was 50, I weighed 178 pounds and could run a 5K race in less than 25 minutes.  … Continue reading

Update

Remember me?  Well, it’s good news and bad news. My back finally got better.  Took forever.  But, I don’t even think about it these days.  That’s good.  Even better, I got a permanent job.  I applied for a job on … Continue reading

Where Do I Start?

It’s been 40 days since my last update?  What, the, ….? Where do I start?  The ten days that followed my last post are a blur.  I really don’t remember what happened there?  I suppose I was busy with interviews, … Continue reading

Back At It

I went for a 5K run before lunch today.  I was not really in the mood for it.  And, it was chilly – fifty, but, with NO SUN.  Yet, I really had no excuse not to go. I ran the … Continue reading

Trying

I went for a 5K run after breakfast.  First time out in nearly three weeks.  It was perfect weather out  there – sunny, fifty and a slight breeze. The battery in my GPS went dead.  I probably covered the 3.1 … Continue reading

199

That’s the number on the scale today.  Pretty much what it was 10 weeks ago too. Thanks to Facebook, I recently was reminded of a photo of me from this time 5 years ago.  It was a post-race photo.  At … Continue reading

Not Dead Yet

I went for a 5K  run at 10:30 AM today.  First time out in 9 days.  Same old excuses. It was cool – in the low 40′s – but, sunny.  I ran the whole 3.1 miles and finished strong.  Total … Continue reading

Trying To Get Back

I went for a 5K run before lunch today.  First time out in THREE WEEKS.  All sorts of excuses – depression, job interviews, weather – including a fluke snow and ice storm last week! I ran the whole 3.1 miles … Continue reading

Blah

I went for a 5K run this morning after breakfast. It was warm (55 degrees) but cloudy.  (It started to rain on me as I was finishing.) This was my first time out in 5 days.  I had family stuff … Continue reading
