I gained weight

Sunday, January 07, 2018

So I'm in a challenge, the 5% challenge. Yesterday was weigh in day, I ALWAYS forget that stuff, so I weighed in early to make sure I was in the clear. 241. Ok. No problem. My "heaviest weight ever" and where I seem to hover is 240, so I can deal with 241. So yesterday morning I actually remembered about the weigh in, but a little later in the morning, so I jumped on the scale to see what it said. 243. Well, OBVIOUSLY that's not right. I mean, I had already had a cup of coffee AND I was wearing thick winter pants, so that's gotta be the cause of the gain. I didn't track it. I kept my starting weight at 241. The 243 weigh in was obviously a fluke.
So this morning I jump out of bed. Pre-coffee, I take my pants OFF, I waddle my t-shirt wearing self over to the scale and hop on, sure I'll see confirmation of 241. Except I don't. 243.8.
I want to tell you that this is some eye opening something or another, and that when I'm done writing this I'm going to jam out to a spark people work out video, but that would be a lie and I don't want to lie to you. I feel so defeated. I have some stupid sleep disorder, and it robs me of part of my life. I'm recently diagnosed and trying to figure out how best to live with this nonsense, but essentially, I am trying to live a full time life on a part time schedule. When I say that I don't have the time or energy to do things- I mean that literally. I sleep. A lot. When I'm awake, I'm running my own business and working a part time job on the side. I try to keep my house clean and take care of the animals. When dinner time rolls around, I'm usually too exhausted to cook, or trying to catch up on something else that needs to be done. When I'm finished with this blog I need to do paperwork so I can pay me, so I can pay my bills. My credit score has recently taken a hit (I don't care) because I literally don't have time to pay myself. Like, the money is in my business account, but I have to do paperwork to give myself a check, and I haven't done that recently. So today is the day!! I cleaned my home yesterday, so today I will clean the business space. It's about 1200 sq ft and I need to scrub it, it usually takes about 3 hours, hopefully I'll get that done. I don't think that counts as exercise. I take breaks. I'm also the caretaker for my grandpa, so I need to go to his house today to refill his medication machine and set up his schedule for next week. I also rescued some dogs last week, so I'll work on finding them placement today. I plan on getting 20 minutes of a work out in sometime today. I want to do 10 minutes per day and I forgot yesterday. Well I suppose that's all for now. Be well sparkpeople.

    I joined SP in 2009. I started at 238. I lost 68 pounds, injured my knee, quit exercising, and nearly gained all of my loss back. My knee pain was beginning to abate over time, in part due to my medically required low sodium diet. (My doctor said, "No salt." but that is not realistic.) I joined WW Jan 2017, recommitted to SP, am eating healthy, and exercising. I am down to 166, give or take. (I weighed 165 when I was pregnant with my son. That's an eye opener.)

    I just want to say that you can do this. We can't give up and we must realize this is a lifestyle change. For our health, we must lose the weight. And we will.

    Be firm with yourself. Set rules and don't break them. The hidden you is in there and wants to be revealed! 😁

    PS 3 hours of scrubbing definitely counts as exercise!
