Weigh-In Friday!

Friday has finally arrived and in fact is almost over.   This week has been NUTS but my eating has been bang on.  My exercise, well I made it to the gym 1 day.  I'll strive for 3 next week!  My weight is down 1.3lbs this week.  Bringing me down to 261.5lbs.  I am happy with the progress considering I only got to the gym once, which is completely my own fault I have no excuse.  AND that I only started tracking my eating again on Monday.  I was away last weekend and ate everything in site.  I am sure if I had weighed myself on Monday it would have been scary.

One thing I learned this week for sure is that I need to start paying attention to how I feel after I eat certain foods.  I am seeing a pattern that I have to even admit I see.  Anytime, I eat a meal with high dairy content, my stomach is not well afterwards.  Particularly if it is rich, such as a full fat latte, or cheese cake, or even just cream instead of 1% milk in my coffee.  I am going to pay much closer attention to how I feel with I eat dairy and maybe it's time to a break (dare I say permanently) from dairy.  Sigh.  All I know is I need to not feel like crap-o-la after I eat a meal!

On the agenda of this weekend, lots of painting, cleaning, and installing one last section of railing on my deck.  Wish me luck!

  1. Great loss Leah and even though you only got to the gym once, that is still great - I know how hard it can be to get out that door.

    I love your goals for this week - getting to the gym 3 times and becoming aware of how you feel after you eat. I had never thought of that before so thanks so much for the idea, it's definitely something I want to be aware off and I am sure it can only help me :)
