The Competition. GRRR

Ugh. It's Sunday. It means its that damn competition I'm in with VW... and Amy and Sissy... and wait, who else? If you are partaking, throw it in the comments. I'll make sure I'll do the linky stuff while talking about how I am still zaftig and not svelte.

I refuse to weigh myself now. I only weigh in the mornings undressed. I am neither of those. I will say, I was at 128 on Friday morning, down .5. I don't even want to know where I am now.

Disney is nothing but crap food. I tried to do a salad one day and felt like I was eating chemicals. Plastic would have tasted better.

I am sore from all the walking, but there is no way I walked off all that fat food.

My attitude is not being helped by the fact one of my kids told me I was fat this weekend. Yeah, that was a real low point in my weekend.

Tomorrow morning, ASAP, I'll post the weight. I am so not looking forward to it.

UPDATE: 130. Blech. That's plus 2 lbs since Friday. I'm thinking there is some water retention there. I drank as much water as I could, but not as I needed. At $2.00 per bottle, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the prospect of drinking a bottle every couple hours for two days...

Anyway, if it is water, we'll see if come off this Sunday. If it's not... well... then... Blech.

Ok, is that kid in need of an eye check up?

Get back on it girly! We'll all do great this week!!

"Mom's fat, eh? Well guess what: Mom can lose weight. Now, can you get smarter? Cos if you don't smarten up and stop insulting your mother, getting older may not be an option. Got that, 'smart' mouth?"


You brought him into the world...

Pullleeeaassseeeeeee. You are in now way FAT. Not after losing 4 pounds with only 11 more to go. Besides, if it makes you feel any better... my Mom agreed that I should lose weight... I was fat. Sigh. Mothers. Then again, she is 5'7" and weighs less than I do, she has the right to talk. Kids. Naaa. They just try to annoy you and know what buttons to push.

Please do not call 130 pounds "fat"...please stop. I am dying over here.

I have pilates 1 hour, and yoga 1 hour tonight. I had a handful of nuts last night, and a glass of wine. I needed the wine. I am still refusing to weigh myself. Refusing the scale to be in my home.

I am getting a bit discouraged from all of my hard physical work I have been doing. I am not noticing big changes.

I am in this for long haul, slow weight loss, so if it takes a year, that is what it takes.

I need to add cardio. Unsure how much more time I can squeeze out of my week.

I didn't say I was fat... my SON did. That won't happen again... rest assured.

I'm only bummin' that I evidently gained 1 pound per day. Holy cow. I'm looking back on what I ate and thinking, "1 POUND A DAY?!!!" I didn't eat THAT much. So this week will all be redo of what I did the last week plus some. That's a bummer.

We never buy water at Disney, we bring our own and refill.

Carry a small backpack to put the bottles in and we are set.

Of course they don't let you do that with alcohol so we didn't come out ahead.

Fat? I seriously doubt you are "fat." Take it from one who, 2 years ago, fit the clinical definition for "obese" and now is simply mildly overwieght: the 15 or so pounds you are overweight (by whatever criterion you arrived at that determination) is not "fat" for someone your size. Maybe, "not in top form" but certainly not "fat."

And the $2 water thing? See:


"The H2O challenge"

A shorter version of his TV "expose"--

"If you buy bottled water because you think it's healthier than tap, test after test shows no evidence of that. And if you buy fancy brands because you think they taste better, you're probably just buying hype."

I installed a good undersink filter (to get rid of a sulphur taste in our water). Even my "princess" daughter can't tell the diff between it and her pricey bottled stuff.

YMMV, of course.

OMG - one reason I refuse to visit theme parks... the incredibly awful hideous food! You only gained 2 pounds!!! That in itself is a miracle! (you should be jumping for joy and congratulating yourself!) With all the chemicals they add to it... it's a wonder you didn't gain back all you lost. And through no fault of your own - that fake food is lethal! Anyhow, here's hoping you don't have to do it again soon... at least until you've reached your goal and settled there. *grin*

As for me... I wouldn't have gained anything since after the first meal I would've been out for the count with a migraine - so things can always be worse ;-)

It is water weight. It's hot down here. I'll be very surprised if you don't see it gone when you weigh in Sunday. And if not.. .tee heee...

Ok Ok... I shouldn't have snickered. Mainly because I know you will take it off, one way or another. GRIN! Just nice to see you are human and can gain weight. I was starting to get worried. (Just joking!)
