This has been so frustrating. I started out with WW in January. Love it. It's simple, I don't go hungry. I'm following the "rules" pretty close. I initially was losing weight nicely.
Now it's lose .4 gain .6 lose 2 gain 1
Up and down and up and down. This will take FOREVER! I want to hit lifetime! I have not decided on a final goal yet, but at the very least I'm 18 lbs away.
So I was talking with the leader today. She asked some very pointed questions. And I answered as truthfully as I can. But the fact is, I have let the journalling lapse some. I've been so stressed about the layoff thing.
So I do need to focus on that. I haven't been exercising as much, but am still working out.
But the BIGGEST thing, that I never even thought of, on the way home from the meeting feeling glum, ffeeling exhausted physically, emotionally and mentally, I realized that my thyroid must be out.
And the lightbulb went on. I haven't picked up my prescription! And it's been there over 2 months! No kidding my thyroid is out. I have no idea how I didn't notice not taking the meds for 2 months. It's such a routine thing. I take it when I brush my teeth, and I KNOW I've been brushing my teeth.
Just goes to show how stressed I am..lol.
On the non scale side of weightloss however, My jeans will need to be replaced in a month or 2. Financially I hope they last 2 months, on the weightloss side, I hope they don't. Right now I can make about 4" pleat(so 8" of extra fabric). My belt won't manage it for that much longer. We'll have to hit Goodwill.
So, today I'll be picking up my prescription today, and get back onto the routine. I also need to get back onto my supplement routine and find the time and money to go see Dr. W to get re-evaluated. The stress is exhausting me, my skin is bad now, my monthlies are vengeful. SO time to get "balanced'.
Hopefully we can get all the financial things in order and dh can be an active partner in it all. I think HE should negotiate the mortgage this time, not just sign the dotted line..lol
