It was no surprise when I stepped on the scale yesterday and saw a three pound gain. My eating last week was bad, meaning too much of the wrong kinds of food. The gain is the consequence of my actions. Yep, I own it.
Previous Weight: 375 lbs
Current Weight: 378 lbs (+3 lbs, boo hoo)
The whining and complaining is out of my system and this is a new week. The scale will move downward at my next weigh-in. I am going to try hard to not eat out this week, especially fast food. Starting today, I am tracking my calories. My goal is to stick between 1500-1800 calories per day. I will give this a try for a couple of weeks and then adjust if necessary. I should start testing my blood glucose also. I know it is high and I can guess the range, but I will start testing so I can have a record for my next doctor visit.
Yesterday, I did some errands/shopping. To most folks, this is not a big deal. Normally I stay home on the weekends. Seriously, I usually don’t go anywhere unless it is to visit my sister and nephew or take a drive with my husband. I used to get out and do more, but over the last year or so I don’t seem to go out. There are a couple of reasons for this. One is that with my weight being so high I’m not comfortable being in public. The other is the pain associated with moving around, getting in and out of the car, walking around or walking around while carrying bags. I know the less I do of these things will only help worsen my situation, making it even more difficult to get out and move around over time. I’m embarrassed by how pathetic this sounds, but it’s my truth. Anyhow, I went to three retail stores yesterday and was maybe out and about less than two hours. The trip wasn’t too bad. I didn’t notice my back hurting at any time. However, my knees did hurt getting in and out of the car and are aching more than usual today. All that said, I need to start doing more than just sitting around the house on the weekends.
How was your weekend? Any goals for this week?
