Ending Week 38 - No Heart

My heart is just not in it right now. We are headed to Europe on Oct 8 and I just can't think weight loss (not using the "d" word). But did remain the same as last week, so I guess that's something.

Not giving up yet, but maybe on a reprieve!

Ending Week 37 - What's New Pussy Cat

Just a little nudge down. Better than nada. Not giving myself great praises though.

Ending Week 36 - Ugly Weigh In

On that slippery slope uphill again. Sorry, folks, I know you are losing faith. I'll keep trying though.

Polish repeat. OPI's Diva from Geneva again!

Ending Week 35 - Oops, Forgot

Sorry I'm late. Planning a trip to Europe this week and that has been all encompassing on my mind. This weigh-in is from yesterday. Just took an extra day to report out.

And sorry about gaining some weight. I just cannot get a handle on this. I haven't been counting calories though, probably the big downfall. I started back counting today. My cal max is 1,200 and I've used 1170, but we'll see how long that lasts.

I just don't know what to say. Losing weight is a tough challenge. I feel I've let you and me both down these last few months. Basically bouncing up and down within a few pounds. This plateau is just lasting to long. 

Now we're planning a 2+ week trip to Europe, where of course I will be eating a lot of new things and drinking a lot of great wines.

I may just chuck it and go on hiatus until we get back. I'll let you know next week.

In the meantime I'll be drinking a lot of water and trying to re-gain control of my eating habits.

Ending Week 34 - Weigh-In Catch-Up

Friends and supporters,   

I'm baaaaaack.....

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my vaca out west in this blog. Been busy catching up with emails, appointments, etc. So today I post three weeks of weigh-ins.

On August 18th, I weighed myself on Lisa's scale in El Granada CA. I wish this was the real weight (157-ish), but alas it is just not possible. I weighed more than this before I left and I have been eating heartily. But I made the effort to weigh on my regular weigh-in day and here's the proof.

This is on August 25. I did not feel too bad about this amount. When I left for vaca I was 161.4. Only a one pound gain. I felt like I ate what I wanted on the trip, but did not gorge myself (except at Duarte's in Pescadero). This weigh-in shows I had pretty good restraint!!

Here is today's weight. Shows I'm having a bit of a hard time getting back into weight loss mode, but at least I lost something. I'm sure not going to beat myself up about it. 
Back to 10 pounds lost and 12 to go. I just wish the elusive 150's would appear.
