Don't Know What I Weigh Today

I am still on my out-of-state trip and didn't have a chance to weigh in for Friday. I will wait until next Friday to weigh. Maybe that will give me a chance to correct any gain!

I have been working a lot physically which is good, but we have been eating out a lot and getting desserts, etc. which is not good. I'll be heading home soon and can start fresh!

How are you doing? Struggling or succeeding? I'd love to hear about it!

I'm Still Here

I am sorry to have neglected this blog for a while. I got very busy on my other blog celebrating 1 tear of blogging and then had a couple of bad weeks as far as weight goes. The problem is that the weight isn't going.

My last post had a 1-lb weight gain. A week after that? I had a 2-lb weight gain! There, it's in writing now. Ugh. But not only that - I did remember to weigh this morning and I gained another .5 lb! So I have gained 3.5 lbs in 3 weeks. Basically, I'm back to where I started months ago because that's all I've managed to lose. I was very disappointed and frustrated.

It's not a mystery why I gained. I had company, then Easter (dinner, desserts, candy), then my birthday and I did absolutely no exercise!

I do NOT want to give up! I must get healthy and lose some weight and I will...eventually. I am now on a trip out-of-state though. This will be tricky. I do not want to eat healthy, but I will try to make some good choices anyway. I do not want to exercise, but I will find a way to do some activity. My goal for the end of the trip will not be weight loss, just no more gaining!!

I'm thinking that I want to try going to Weight Watchers meetings again. Since they have a new program that I'm not familiar with (Momentum), I might do better keeping up with it. I have to do something! I think I will sign up when I come back. I have about 3 months until our summer trip and I would really like to be in control and down a few pounds before then.

How are you doing? If you are struggling, don't give up!! Keep on trying! If you are doing well, please share your tips with me!

Fitness Friday - I'm Blaming My Dad For My Weight Gain

Well if you have company come and visit, don't they take responsibility for your weight gain? Right Dad? I suppose if I blame Dad for my gain, he'll blame me for his - LOL!

If I am not already well in control of my healthy eating/weight management, it doesn't take much to really throw me off. We ate out a lot and I didn't make the best food choices. And we bought a lot of candy/snacks - I inherited a strong sweet tooth!

So are you ready for my total gain for the week? It's 1 lb. And yes, I am actually happy! Why? Because a couple of days ago, I really thought the gain would be closer to 3 lbs - yikes! Maybe the activity from the week saved me. I didn't do any Wii Fit this week. But I started out the week with some marathon cleaning/redecorating (the story is here if you're interested) and then we did a lot of walking around with my Dad. We even went and toured a Cavern with LOTS of steps down into it - realized just how many there were coming back up. The guide told us it was our thighmaster/step workout for the day!

So I must get back on track this week! It should be OK 'cause we are still on Spring Break and now hubby is on vacation. We will be working on lots of projects, keeping busy. And I should be able to fit in some Wii Fit sessions this week. It would be so nice to lose more than a pound so I'd get rid of the gain plus more.

How was your week? Any fitness or healthy tips to help me out this week? I know we can have a good week - let's do it!! :)

Go to Wii Fit Mommies and get some Fitness Friday inspiration!
