My son the bike expert came by tonight to check out my bike... Turns out my tires were a little under-inflated - they were suppose to be at 50 and they were at 18. So it's no wonder I had a hard time riding it - you put a FAT person on a bike with flat tires and your bound to get a workout! He aired up my tires, adjusted my seat - which really helped my big fat hiney! and attempted to adjust the brake - which he says is dragging on the front tire. Turns out the front tire is crooked (of course not the term he used) - so I guess we'll be taking a trip back to the store to get a new bike. This time I think I'll make sure the tires have enough air though!
1.6 pounds for a total of 7.8 pounds lost. Still having issues with eating all my points. My goal for this week is to TRACK my points and EAT all my points - and maybe even go into my reserve...
I also got a bike. I rode for a little while on Sunday - my legs were soar afterward - but not too bad. Then I decided to ride it again yesterday - Bob had advised against it - but I wasn't hurting so, I thought no big deal. I rode around the block - it's a large block - and I thought I was going to die before I got home. My legs were hurting so bad - I had to keep moving or they would buckle under me. Bob suggested I sit in a bathtub of COLD water - which I did - that did relieve the pain. I plan to ride again tomorrow - but not on any of the hills or inclines - just on the flat road in front of the house.
I actually got a 5 pound star tonight at Weight Watchers. I have lost 6.2 pounds since I started WW. Tonight was my 4th meeting. According to my scale I have lost 10.5 pounds since I started on March 21st. I talked to one of the ladies that celebrated 25 pounds tonight - I asked her if she actually eats all of her points. She said yes, and that she suggests I let myself eat all my points per day and even go into my reserve - that otherwise my body could be holding on to calories because it's afraid it won't get more. I think she is actually right - the week I did the best was the week I went into my reserve points. I'm going to try harder to eat at least my points everyday.
I'm less than 4 pounds from my 5% goal. I also lost 1 point because of my weight loss.
This is a lift of a layout of the same name by Debie T from Two Peas in a Bucket. She is one of my favorite scrappers at Two Peas. When I saw this layout I loved it - and then when I read the journaling about looking forward to choices she will be able to make when purchasing clothes, when she looses weight - I knew this was what I needed to do with this Before picture I had Niko take.
I don't normally lift the title or the theme of the page - but on this one I just couldn't resist.
The April Challenge at Scrap Our Stash is to either scraplift a layout or use a sketch for inspiration. This is also for my BOS challenge at Two Peas in a bucket.
I attempted to post the pictures of the Asylum here - but instead managed to delete my original post at Scrap Our Stash. So rather then have to go through that again HERE is a link to Scrap Our Stash - where you can see the completed project. Note - there is a link at the bottom of the post to the BEFORE pictures too.
As of this AM on my scale - I have lost a total of 11 pounds from my original starting weight on March 21. Wooh Hoo! I don't think it's noticable - but my clothes do fit better - and I do feel better! Thanks for sharing my joy!
I had Weight Watchers tonight. I lost 3.4 pounds this week for a total of 4.4. You get a star if you loose 5. So, no star for me tonight. I should get one next week though. According to my scale I have actually lost a total of 9.5 pounds. It will probably take at least 9 more before anyone will notice.
My old "diet" mindset had definitely set in yesterday. On any other "diet" I would have to starve myself the rest of the week to make up for eating almost 1000 calories at one meal - but I really only used 10 of my extra points. I still have 25extra points to use - and my activity points - so it's not like I'm bankrupt. Also, today I started over with my 24 points for the day. I'm really liking this - but it is definitely not what I'm use to! YEAH!
Bob and I went out tonight - how bad could a buritto bowl at Chipolte's be! 949 callories, 39 grams of fat and 5 grams of Fiber - ONLY 20 POINT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also ate 12 chips - according to my WW points they were suppose to be 1 point for 12. I only ate 12. Turns out they are actually 490 calories, 19 grams of fat, and 5 grams of fiber. So I ate about 1/3 of the bag. So that means ONLY 4 PONTS!
So, for supper I ate my whole daily allowence of points. Guess I won't have to worry about eating too little today.
Guess I'll check this kind of stuff next time before I go out!
I just got home from Weight Watchers. I've done really well all week - at least I thought I had. I have had a hard time eating all of my points - and there have been days I have not. I have not used any of my extra points or activity points. So... I should have lost a lot, RIGHT?
According to WW I lost 1 pound this week!
Last week at WW I was 2 pounds lighter than I had been at home that AM - today I'm the same as I was this AM. So where did those 2 pounds go???????????
I'm confused. I guess I should just stick to the WW scale and not weight at home. Not sure I can give that up though!
