Thank you for your comments yesterday.  When I am home, I do measure my foods to make sure I am doing what I should.  When I am at work or on the go, I try to go with foods I know the calories.  After reading Chris's Post about measuring it got me thinking and wondering if even those measurements were correct.  Today I was forced into eating with the management team and I made as solid choices as I could.  But because it was catered and the provider didn't have the nutritional information, I was forced to look at similar foods and guess as to my calorie content.  I try to be pretty religious when it comes to calories because I want this so bad.  I am just so frustrated that the weight isn't coming down.  My husband says I look like I'm slimming even if the scale doesn't show it.  So, with it being the end of January, I decided to re-evaluate my goals and tomorrow start fresh.  The first thing I am going to do is kick the weighing every day since for 11 days in a row I have hovered around 196.  I weigh at my trainers on Monday so I will do the same at home.  I also noticed that I started eating a heavier breakfast around 11 days ago - instead of Fruit n yogurt parfait from McDonalds (130 calories with no granola that I threw away) I would have Fruit and Maple Oatmeal at 290 calories then adjust what I ate the rest of the day.  There has to be something with my diet that is keeping the weight on.  I am moving every single day.  I am drinking water.  I am not eating breads or sweets.  So, it has to be something that I am eating that is keeping me up.  If I can figure that out and do the measuring better, than I hope by next Monday I will be down.  PLEASE!  I am not giving up.  I am frustrated, but I am not giving up.  Hell, I'm 10 pounds lighter than I was three months ago.  That counts for something.  The steel curtain is up.



  1. It definitely counts for something! Every single pound is a great step in the right direction!

  2. ten pounds is good...are you weighing your food. At some point.if you are weighing and measuring...and the scale is not coming down...it may be a thyroid thing. You shouldn't be hovering at 196 while eating 1500 calories a day. It just shouldn't be happening. Hugs.

  3. *hugs* Hope you get it all figured otu so you can continue on with your journey <3!
