Weigh In Week 36 

Just a blip on the radar of my life this week...

May 24, 2017


Just a quick post to say life is crazy right now.  Work, personal stuff, health stuff....just very overwhelmed. I am still tracking everything and still following WW.  Walking and the Y have fallen by the wayside for now but I know once this crazy period is over (first week of June), I will get back to it.

Dennis' (my late husband) birthday is next week and I am not sure if that is affecting my general low mood but I am definitely feeling more melancholy, introverted and withdrawn than usual.

I have not been weighing myself in the mornings the last week and half.  I've been getting up early and going to work so early that by the time I remember, I am already dressed or eaten breakfast or out the door and tell myself I will do it the next day and then I forget again.

My night time weigh ins are all between 186-189 so I'm not worried at all.  My clothes are fitting even looser and people keep telling me I am "tiny". Tiny is an extreme exaggeration!  I was able to buy size Large at a regular store last week and size 14 Nine West jeans are actually loose right out of the dryer :)

I am going to set my alarm to remind me to weigh in tomorrow, my regular weigh in day.

I'm trying to keep up with all your blogs though because you all inspire me and I so appreciate the support you give me.

Unity 6.93km Run/Walk

Times not posted yet but the clock at the finish line was 1:18:01. MyFitbit says  11:07/km (walking) and I am good with that!  Before the race; after the race with a vintage cop car and the bling!

Lynne's Legacy 5k

It was a rainy, cold and miserable day in Hamilton this morning and I've come down with a stomach bug since Thursday night so I wasn't feeling my best. I didn't want to bail on my friend Melissa, so I dragged myself out of bed and met her to get this done. We actually had a good time and our gun time was great. Still waiting for chip times.  Red faced and rain-haired smiling me in the arena after the race! The bling and Finisher's Certificate.

Edited to add: This is walking time - I don't run anymore.

Weigh In Week 33

Week 33 and another loss!

I lost about 10 lbs before I joined WW in September so FitBit celebrated with me with a 50 lbs lost badge.   

I had a bit of a "50lbs and no difference" moment at my kettlebell class the other night. One wall of the fitness studio is all mirrors, so seeing my reflection lined up next to tall and toned women really hit home how far I still have to go. 

These photos helped me put it in perspective. 

The first photo was May 2016 and the right side just this past weekend.  The first one was taken at my work AGM so I'm looking forward to this year's photos at the end of May.

I just signed up with WW online for another 3 months.  At the end of that three months I will probably join meetings so I can get lifetime (hopefully) and stop giving them my money :)

Not much else going on in my corner of the world. I've signed up for a bunch of races (walking) with my friend Melissa for the Summer/early Fall and I am planning a trip to Vegas for my 50th birthday in October, probably around Thanksgiving weekend.

Other than that, I keep going to the Y and walking as much as I can although Spring seems to have gone back into hibernation the last week or so. At least its not snowing!  I can handle rain :)
