Weight Watcher's Weigh In - Catch Up

It’s been a while since I reported my weigh ins. They haven’t been the greatest but here they are (week ending):

August 29 +1.8
September 5 +1.6
September 12 -1.2
September 19 +0.8

Which sums up to be a gain of 3 pounds over the last month. It’s not where I wanted to be or the direction I wanted to be headed. I’m not going to sit here and give you excuses. I’m going to leave these couple weeks behind me and move on. It’s like being on the track team and jumping hurdles. When the gun goes off and you race to the first hurdle, some make it over and keep going then there are those that fall. They don’t stay there to be trampled on by the next runner. They get up and keep going. Well, that’s me. I’ve fallen out of my weight loss zone for a few weeks but it’s not time to get back on track.

One thing that I’ve really slacked on over the past couple weeks is journaling. I’m making myself a promise: If I bite it, I will write it! Many times I will just take a taste of something and not write it because I don’t know the point value or “it wasn’t much, it won’t matter”. Oh yeah it does matter. My overall eating habits and choice of foods isn’t bad. I’m made a LOT of progress over the past 6 months. My sweet tooth…we’ll I don’t know what happened to that – it’s gone! I haven’t really craved any candy bars, ice creams, cake…nothing.

The other area that I need to really work on is exercise. I know I can put out 100 reasons as to why I don’t workout and they all go back to time. I know that I have 10 minutes here or 10 minutes there…it’s just finding it. To start off, my sister is going to meet me 2-3 days a week on my lunch hour to walk. We have an exercise area set up in our garage. I just need to get myself motivated to find the time to get out there an use the stuff even if it means getting up at 4:15 instead of 4:30 or going to bed at 10:45 versus 10:15.

I don’t have much more than that… I haven’t made my way any closer to running a 5K like I had hoped to do by now. I’m going to get there though.

How have you been doing on your weight loss journey? What do you do to pick yourself up, if you fall off track?

I am holding steady at my 15 pound loss. Not gains which is good, but now real losses either. I'm okay with that for now. I'm back to my pre-preggo weight with the oldest.
I'm hoping to start losing more with the indoor stuff. I started walking (no running, it's a bad influence) up and down my stairs about 5 times in a row. This is on top of the normal amount of times I go up and down.
