Weigh In Day

Posted on: July 2, 2013

So Tuesday is my Weight Watcher meeting and Weigh In… I mentioned that I had gained over two pounds overnight and was surprised by that on Monday morning… For the weigh in I was up exactly one pound from the previous weigh in…So no complaints here…

Linking up Today with TransAtlantic Blonde and What I Wore Wednesday  and Tres Chic

I have been very frustrated with this last part of the weight loss journey, as I had told myself I didn’t want to be as thin as I had been before I began gaining.  I see pictures and didn’ t like how thin my face was.  I am now a size 6 and in many brands, I can wear a size 4 as well.  So somebody please help me understand why that is the highest acceptable weight for my height?… Why when I used the Navy’s military BMI calculator that I was in the acceptable range, but just .3 away from obese? …this one asked for lots of measurements including your neck…I just want to be at a place where I feel healthy and that I can maintain for the rest of my life…

Just needed to vent about that.. I do want to be more in the middle of the healthy requirements for my height and will do so, but had to get real and mad about the fact that I will be a size 4 by goal weight and be shopping for all new clothes… or mostly new bottoms…Quite  Frankly, I have been pouting… That ends today!

I am going to kick it in to gear by joining the YMCA next week.  I loved the membership we had before and went three times a week doing all water exercizes and loving it… I did 2.5 to 3 hours in the pool three times a week… I am a lover of exercise, more so for strength training than cardio.  I have been doing well with strength training at home, but need the Y for the cardio because ,although I love exercize, I hate to sweat… so back to the pool I go…Should lose these last pounds pretty quickly…

IMG_0789Love this thrifted skirt and silhouette.  The top is by Chadwicks’ bought two years ago, back then diddn’t fit , but hey I prepared ahead for this weight loss… Shoes from Payless last year and Purse is by Liz Claiborne NY for QVC.  I would so wear skirts everday if that didn’t get boring fast and let’s face it , if you’ve been following my blog at all , you can tell I love to vary silhouettes.  

Dear Readers, I have really let my weight loss journey stall for more months than I care to confess, but am done pouting and ready to lose those last pounds and move on with it.  I am just so grateful to be where I am now and to have had the success and support to get this far! I appreciate the support I receive here from you all as well. Thank You!   I also want to thank those who commented about my missing my mother and sharing their own journeys of Dementia and Alzheimer’s!

I am liking everything about this outfit, but the skirt is my favorite. The print is big, bold and so fun! I have purchased a few patterned bottoms, but I haven’t worn them. Does it make sense that I like the patterns but are afraid of them? LOL

I completely understand your issues with the scale. Been there, done that…..I reached an ultimate goal weight and looking back at those pictures, I didn’t look healthy. I had a regain but kept 7 pounds. I looked better and healthier, no more sunken cheeks and eyes.

Yes, it makes sense ,but the desire is there or you wouldn”t have purchased them… I say be brave, and go for it, time to pick one and play in the mirrror.

I just want to be healthy and the very high end of the recommended weight just doesn’t feel right, after all I was prediabetic.. and doing this for health.

This is my first visit. I found you at “What I Wore Wednesday”. I totally get your frustration with the whole weight loss journey. I too have stalled as of late. BUT…I keep reminding myself that I am still smaller than I used to be and I know one day I will meet my goal.
I love your skirt. The graphic pattern is really gorgeous. Pairing it with the black ruffle tank and the dark green purse was fabulous!

Thank you! I just want to do this one time and maintain it for the remainder of my life… Good Luck on your journey and you will reach your goal!!

Love that skirt! Screw charts–what weight do YOU feel comfortable at?

Since I am losing weight for health reasons being at a healthy weight is important to me and I want to get there once and stay there and move on…
