The Scale Liked Me Today/Weigh In

I've become so upset, yet hadn't really taken any real steps on the latest weight gain. So when I weighed myself this morning I was pretty pleased with what the scale said, although the mirror really didn't agree with it.

Current Weight: 216.6 lbs

So that's the smallest number I've seen all year so far. I gained so much weight in January the lowest I'd gotten since then had been 217 lbs. So I'm hoping that I'll be able to keep seeing this number go down.

I start my new job exactly a week from today. I want to weigh 215 lbs. Looking at the scale I think I can make that happen. I just have to be adamant about making sure I don't binge and keep active. Today wasn't a very good start. I grazed all day and this evening at a get together at my boss I almost single handed-ly ate the bean dip and more than a few cookies for appetizers. I still feel full now. I'll have to do better the rest of the week. I'm really rooting for the 0.4 lbs loss.

I think I can! I think I can!

My goal for this summer is to reach 200 lbs by my birthday in August. Going back to the 50 lbs loss mark would be a great way to get myself back on track. I think losing 16 lbs in 2.5 months is definitely do-able.

How am I going to do it? Well for now I think I'm going to reintroduce myself to fruits and vegetables. Because I can't run I've been going on long walks and easy short hikes. I'm going to make a streak to do 10 push ups a day and 100 crunches a day for a month. Also VERY do-able.

We'll start there. I'm not going to make too many elaborate goals yet. We'll start with fruits and vegetables, walks, crunches and push ups. For one month. I think I can do that.

Wish me luck. I've already done my push ups, and walk for the day. I just need 20 more crunches. LOL

We can do this!

Sorry to read that you've been struggling lately. Stress plus a physical injury is rough. I have PF too but it's gotten a lot better with time.
I hear you on getting more fruits and veggies... this is a great time of year to start to find tasty and cheaper local produce.
Good luck with your new job next week!

I had plantar fasciitis too. When I was 260ish, it hurt to walk. I started stretching first thing in the morning by leaning against the bed with my legs away from the bed. That made it a little better. What really really helped it was losing weight. I still notice that it's there, but it's not nearly so painful - and I am running now - on hard surfaces. So don't give up - it's manageable!
