Week 22

My man lost 4 pounds last week! He was alone to make all his own L&G’s and he did FABULOUSLY - staying ON PLAN too.


Me.... I lost ZERO!!! I stayed the same weight. This is my first week NOT losing, and after last week, with all that walking, drinking water and being SO hot... I really am bummed!! I really wanted to be rewarded with a closer number to the “19’s”. Drat!!


Both of our birthday’s are this coming weekend and I was imagining that it would be the coolest “gift” to myself to be under 200 pounds by then. It’s not looking too promising as that would mean I’d have to lose about a pound a day.


Oh well, my man says I probably gained muscle from all that walking and hiking. SO... I am putting this “no loss” behind me and continuing on as usual. It’s the long haul that really matters, and I am in this for the long haul this time! :) Life is GOOD! :)

Keep up the great work. I've had weeks similar to yours losing no weight and it was usually the main cause of me giving up. Nice to see you are still pushing on and not letting it get to you.

Everything's possible if you just believe in it!

It can be so depressing cant it. Especially after heaps of hard work. The best thing is though it willcome off if you keep doing what you are doing with your exercise and watching what you eat. You might find over the next couple of weeks it will come off. I had a shocker not long 2 weeks ago but it evened out this week! Keep going though hun x

Oh Margene~ I totally feel your pain. After I got back from my vacation I had NO loss or gain Just stayed the same. UGH! I was so bummed seeing how I was SO careful and GOOD the whole time too. But since then I have had a major eye opener to the possible reason to my stalemate. So let's, the 2 of us pray for a BIG loss next week. OK?smile.

I've also had weeks like yours. One just has to stay positive and just not give up.. which is the easy way out for many of us, myself included. I reached my goal weight at WW a couple years ago, and have gained 20 pounds back, which I am now working hard at losing.. all over again. It can be quite frustrating, but, I try to stay positive and continue on with my good habits I've learned along the way.

I am sure you'll be seeing your weight loss real soon!

Blessings,

The patience to wait for Onderland is more precious than actually getting there. The patience will keep you there! Keep drinking that water!

Even though you drank tons of water...the heat probably wreaked havoc on your water retention! It will all work out!

Yes! Life is good! Happy Birthday to both of you! You will get to your goal of below 200. Just keep going! I know! Isn't it so frustrating! And your hubby might be right, maybe you didn't lost pounds - but you might have lost inches.
Have a pretty day!
