Busy week?

7/4/10 303.6
7/12/10 299.0
7/19/10 298.0

That's more like what I expected but still in the right direction. I'll just stay the course until it needs correction.

7/5 = 321.6
7/12 = 316.4

OK - I know I haven't been updating on this thread like I said I would. Truth is, I haven't been online a whole lot this year. But I had a minor setback recently and need to refocus my efforts.

Monday 7/19 = 321.0

My only daughter's first birthday was this weekend and I got so caught up in the stress of party planning / being a host that I completely forgot that I no longer eat several slices of pizza, empanadas, BBQ, cake, etc. I (no exaggeration) put on over 6 pounds in one weekend! I am going to simply right the ship and work hard this week to get back on track.

HI Guys- sorry for not posting earlier. I am sure my weight is up a bit. Used to be I was chomping at the bit to post these. ARRRRGH.. Where has the motivation gone? Ok I have to get back to work... but will post more later - confess -post my weight (up a poundish) and goals. A bit depressed lately...because I am gaining or am I gaining due to my depression ....Conundrum indeed.

Week 1: 255 lbs
Week 2: 248.5 lbs
Week 3: 247 lbs

Goal: Next verse, same as the first: to stick to my plan and lose another pound or more in the next week.
It was rough last week - I bobbled around 248 for what seemed like FOREVER, but sticking to my allotted daily calories did the trick.
Eating out - even on the "light menu" really screws with me: is it the sodium? Dunno.

On my way back down.

Decided to go for slope, not distance, last night and discovered that my dérailleur was set wrong: I tried for my granny gear, and the chain fell off to the inside. Oh, well -- did what I could in next-to-low gear, then came home.
