Quest Update #2

So my journey to lose a little weight is filled with obstacles. What are they? I can't even pinpoint exactly what they are....a wee bit frustrating. Last Saturday when I weighed in I had gained a bit over a pound. What? Four sticks of butter? Really?

So...I walk out of Weight Watchers determined to have a different week this week. I have been writing everything down ( I DO mean everything!), measuring, keeping track of points, and working out on WiiFit for at least 40 minutes every day. I am drinking my water, adding more times I go up and down the stairs, and NOT eating things like brownies, cookies, etc...that I find around me at all times and in all places.

I could get depressed about the whole thing, but I am trying to put the whole thing into perspective. People have much greater issues than my weight issue. A friend of mine just had her seven year old daughter airlifted out of a ski area with injuries to her head (things are looking better now), Darby has diabetes that she has to monitor with every bite she puts into her mouth, a relative close to me has Parkinson's, my dad has dementia issues...so many things going on that put my desire to lose weight to shame!

Still, keeping that in perspective, I'd like to be a bit successful on the weight front this week. I will keep you posted...

I completely understand where you are coming from! I am trying not to become obsessed with my weight..therefore I am eating healthier and exercising daily. I was a little down though when I realized I had gained the 15lbs. I lost before my foot stuff back! How depressing. But putting it into perspective, we can at least exercise and enjoy life where others can't or have a hard time doing so! Keep up the good work Lisa, I'm proud of you! We'll get there for sure!!
