More then ever!

Weigh in today 286.4. Will that scale ever move? Argh!

Last night my oldest daughter had her 8th grade choir concert. She did wonderful, I did not! They had regular fold up metal chairs all lined up in a row. The problem was....well to put it buttly I mean
bluntly....the problem was that my BUTT wouldn't fit very well in the chairs.

I was so frustrated. I was so uncomfortable. I had to sit on the edge of the chair or my BUTT would spill out the sides and back. How humiliating! This happens to me all the time but for some reason last night I was just FED UP WITH IT!! Many things happened yesterday that wouldn't normally happen if I were already at my "skinny" weight. I'm so desperate to get the weight off that I sometimes want to skip a meal to make it go "FASTER." I don't skip meals though. My whole purpose is to get healthy and loose weight, not just loose weight.

So I'm desperate for this to happen faster. I know I'm being impatient but I want to do more then just eat right. I'm thinking a gym membership is in my future.

How is everyone else doing?

In April, I lost ten lbs when I was rushing to the Ymca to work out and use up the last days of them having a hot tub. As of right now, I have maintained the ten lb loss but I haven't lossed anymore. I too sometimes feel that I just don't fit in the chairs. Ugh. Right now, I am going to the Y three times a week and I try to fit some kind of exercise in on the other days. I have started to use my weight machine in addition to all the walking. I was feeling a really bad ache in my knees and it's already so much better. I want to lose but I am trying to be happy that I am not gaining. I am doing a little better at resisting junk food.

Hi Rebekah! I've been keeping up with your other blog for several months now, but I'm not much of a commenter. However, I was thrilled to see this new blog of yours because it's providing me with such motivation! I want to lose between 50 and 60 pounds over the course of this next year while my husband is on deployment. But it's so difficult to be responsible with food and maintain a steady workout schedule. But being able to hop online and see with my own eyes that other people feel just like I do has been such an inspiration. So keep it up, you're doing better than me already! :)

(1): Excerise is the single most important thing to keeping weight off. You don't need a gym membership - go for a 20-30 min walk most days to start. (2): Don't skip meals. If you do that you confuse your body as to when you're going to feed it next - therefore it's going to hold onto the fat it has as a survival mechanism. (3): If you need to break a stall, try a high calorie, high fat meal. Then resume your diet and excerise as normal. I know it seems contradictionary, and I don't know exactly how it works, but you can google it if you want to check it out.

I hate the whole chairs thing. I've taken to subconsciously scanning the room to see if the chairs will fit as I enter the room. And death to the booth! UGH!

Hey sis. I hear you! I am so sorry that this process is frustrating, cause I know how you feel. Today, I have to go to the doctor to get checked up on my meds, and I know they are going to weigh me in and then talk to me about all of the things I haven't been doing, and how my blood work looks. Arg!! So, yesterday I made my first real healthy meal in a while. My goal: Drink drink drink water, eat lots of fruits and veggies, workout 3-4 times a week. I know we can do this. We will be at our healthy weight at some point, but I know it takes time. I am glad that you are not skipping meals though cause that's not good.
Love ya,

I had my weigh in for the week. First week on the diet and I lost 10lbs. I am really hoping for another 10lbs next week but it probably won't happen. I am really hoping I will keep dropping 10lbs each week. I am going to see family June 10th and it would be awesome to be 40lbs less.
