WW: That's total crap!

I woke up this morning not thinking I lost much weight and was prepared not to be too disappointed with the number once I stepped on the scale. I looked at the number and knew I had lost some weight from last week but how much from last week I wasn't sure as I try not to concentrate too much on the number from week to week. This was the message I got when I logged in my weight:

THANKS for logging your weight. You've lost weight since you last visited the weight tracker. You must feel pleased that those pounds are coming off!

However, we notice that you've lost more than an average of 2 pounds per week over three or more weeks. This rate is too rapid it may be unsafe or unhealthy.

While we're proud of your achievements and pleased you're making changes in your life, we need you to concentrate on one more thing: You should slow the pace of your weight loss to no more than 2 pounds per week.

I was a bit surprised at that message as it's not like I lost a massive amount of weight from last week to this one, it was 2.4 lbs people! Add to that I couldn't find my focus withexercisee until later in the week!

Ugh, seriously! I ate really well this past week and have concentrated on more fresh fruits and vegetables than anything else but it wasn't like I was starving myself. Far from it, this Saturday I went to a Middle Eastern festival and was lax on my points for that one day. I didn't go overboard, but I wasn't exactly choosing the most healthy options either.

I don't get it, weeks where I'm busting my ass I lose so little weight and this one week where I was rather lax on my concentration, I lose a chunkfull?!?!

That's total crap!

I have some bad news concerning exercisee, I was on the treadmill last night when it started going wonky on me and threw me off. I wasn't hurt and it was toward the end of my workout so all wasn't lost. Looks like a screw broke and that threw thetreadmilll belt off so it's all messed up! I have to place a service call to have it repaired so that's out ofcommissionn for the time being. Guess I'll have to focus on weight training for this week. That sucks!

SI: I've been making good progress on this front, as well as can be expected. For minor issues, breathe therapy is helping me a lot and really concentrating on letting things go. There was one instance this past week where circumstances got a bit overwhelming and I was afraid of falling back into routine but I was able to work through it.

I'm at the point where my weight loss is more apparent but I'm more proud of the progress I've made with SI as it's more internal than external so people don't know how far I've come on that front. I know that I still have a long way to go, but deep down inside I know I can do it!

Yay, Sand!! See? You've been working that poor treadmill to pieces. ;-) You're doing great, great, great. Total crap--yes. S'what it is. 2.4lbs--baby!! Middle Eastern festival--yum!!!

you are so admirable. I'm in awe of you!
Congrats on your weight loss! :-)
It seems you are exercising allright...
Does the sleeping come easier now?
I hope so....
Fix that treadmill ASAP!!
The reason I think you lost weight without trying so hard is that you have incorporated healthy habits!!!
Keep working and being healthy..you are certainly on your way . ;-)
BTW thanks for your comments on Vettiveru, it is just what I suspected, my partner loves vetiver and I guess it will make a good anniversary present in a couple of months.
See ya...
