A Long Time Between Blog Posts

23 Apr

I haven’t posted in eleven days.  The only thing I can attribute it to is being busy … and unhappy with my diet.

A few weeks ago I started walking several times per week.  In addition with my other activities – I was doing about 30 points or so per week in activity points.  I assumed my weight loss would pick up a bit.  I’m doing a marathon in January and have a bit of weight to lose between now and then.

Since I last posted, I’ve lost 2.7 pounds.  Over two weeks.  This is not going to get me to the weight I need for the marathon.

I’m still eating right – not going over my daily points or using my weekly extra point allotments.

The last time I did Weight Watchers and was on this same plan (diet / exercise) – I was losing almost 4 pounds per week.  I realize that’s on the high end – and I’d be happy with half of that, or two pounds per week.  But these weeks where I lose just .6 pounds?  Not fun.

I know what the issue is and will be seeing a doctor soon to get back on track.

So that might explain why I haven’t been up for blogging.  I’m still on the plan and still losing.  Just not at the pace I’d like to be – or need to be.

With that … how about a quote for the day from Miss Marilyn Monroe?
