Babe53's Journal, 10 February 2014

Okay, now I'm down again. Our bodies are so weird. It's all too scientific for me to understand. But I did decide one thing: I'm only going to weigh in once a week: MONDAYS.

I used to be a weight watchers member for a couple of years but have stopped my membership to save the money. I was happy last night to have learned of an app you can get that works pretty much exactly like the weight watchers tool ... its called "The Ultimate Food Value Diary" - it's $3.99 for iphones and $2.99 for androids. I bought the thing! Check it out, you may really like it too!

anyway ...

I think 'the change' is happening to me; at my age it would be no surprise. I wish I was completely done with 'it', i'm thru having babies. I have been spotting these last couple of days so maybe this is why the jump in weight (water retention). Again, I don't get it. So, I won't bother trying.

My spirits are up a bit from last night. I ended my night last night, by the way, with that bowl of cereal -- Frosted Flakes, of all things and they were Grrreat! :P

Bodies ARE weird. I agree. So hard to figure out. But look how well you've done in the last month! Give yourself a pat on the back for the great progress and bide your time until your change takes its natural course. Sigh.

I like reading your posts. They cheer me up. Great idea weighing in once a week. I always noticed I'd lose weight on the 8 th day.

Thank you for the support yesterday! I appreciate it. I see you've lost over 11 lbs...fantastic! I think you're wise to weigh only once a week. The program I'm doing now, carb cycling, recommends only one weigh-in per week. I took it a step further and decided to scrap the scale and just go by the fit of my clothes. That, to me, is the true indicator of my "success." I get too obsessed with numbers to use the scale -- just weird that way.... Well, keep up the good work. And thanks again for your encouragement!
