4/2 Weigh In – TFTS

Tales from the Scales LogoI have taken a hiatus this past week from dwelling on things weight-loss. It has been wonderful. I can’t say that I have eaten more than in previous weeks, in fact I was down a pound from the past couple of weeks. I needed to take a break. I was stressing out and it took my mom telling me to “not think about it” for a while to realize that I was in full swing obsession.

I’m going to carry on for at least another week of just being thankful for my body, taking every angry or frustrated thought about my weight and turning it into a simple prayer of thanksgiving and letting it go. It feels a LOT better than what I was doing before. We’ll see…

Weigh In #11 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoStarted my own new challenge today. Ok, so not so much of a challenge as just trying to actually DO what it is that I want to be doing. 🙂 Sounds really specific, doesn’t it?

My weigh in this morning was not good, but the same as the past couple of days. Lower than my max, but no change to speak of. Mostly because I’ve been avoiding facing my “issue” of CONTROL. I blogged about it yesterday on my SCOH journal. Today is a new day, and so far so good. Will see ya again next week and THAT will determine how successful my intended methods are. 😉

3/19 Weigh In – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoWeighing in has been a bit spotty this past few. Hoping there’s going to be a new challenge from the TFTS gals soon!

I have restarted my Thin Within life. Set some new goals using SparkPeople goal tools. They rock! It is, by far, the best place to go for tracking your health and fitness stuff. I *highly* recommend it!

Weigh In #10 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoAll I can say is 🙁 Well *whew* and :(. I’m down 1 from last week at least. Just was hoping that it was some crazy “that time of the month” thing that would disappear this week. I’m down 1. Sort of.

Hoping there’s a new challenge coming soon?

Weigh In #9 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoSorry for the poor timing on this one. I have been sick for the past several days. 🙁 And I broke some weight records…in the wrong direction. But, I am going to pick myself up and, like my son, say – “Oh well!”

No loss. Much gain. (How many do-overs do we get here?) I’m making some changes. Namely, drinking my water. It may seem small, but since I’ve been sick, I decided what my body needed most (after sleep) is water. I actually managed to consume 8 cups of water (not including coffee and soda) yesterday and I am sure that is what is helping me feel better. And now I put of eating until I’ve finished whatever water bottle I’m carrying around. It helps me be sure it’s hunger and not thirst that I’m feeling.

Weigh In #8 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoVirtually stayed the same. Technically up .6, but in the world of rounding, there’s no change.

I’ve been practicing the “doing the same thing and expecting something different” insanity here. Got not much else to say on the matter. 😀 Let’s talk next week.

Weigh In #7 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoOverwhelmed with work. Forgot to post this earlier – of course I was unenthusiastic about the content I needed to post, but this is life. Up 3.

Weigh In #6 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoTo quote Quincy on “Little Einsteins”….

I can NOT be-LIEVE it!

Little Einsteins

But in all seriousness, I would call the 1 lb loss this week a genuine miracle. A blessing undeserved.

Weigh In #5 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoNo tangible loss this week. Technically .4 lbs, which doesn’t register. Doesn’t mean I don’t want to claim it! LOL.

I haven’t been regularly active on this blog, but that’s because the photo food log I have been doing over on my TW blog has taken most of my computer time.

Weigh In #4 – Tales from the Scales

Tales from the Scales LogoSince I rebooted my challenge last week (can anyone say DO OVER!!), I am down 3 lbs! Since I have about 77 to go, I’m going to claim these 3 lbs as a victory even if it is just Christmas weight! LOL! I’m also excited about the challenge extension!

Happy New Year!!
