Super Bowl Sunday - Not so SUPER!

Well, I weighed in today. I did lose, just not what I had wanted. I lost .4. I know, I know, a loss is a loss! I did have two bad days this week, but I didn't think they were that bad. At first, the lady weighing me said I was down 2.2! Wow, I will take it. Then, after the meeting, when I got home, I looked in my book again. She had subtracted wrong. WHAT A DOWNER! But, this will only make me try harder this week. And just think, that's without having the pizza!! I stayed strong and didn't get the pizza last night or today! That's a NSV I suppose!

I think I over did it this past week with exercise. I am only 2.5 months out from the hysterectomy and I think I over did it a bit. Granted, I am not lifting weights yet or anything, but we are doing some serious walking. I have hurt all weekend long and my tummy is a bit swollen from it. Now, I realize, most people wouldn't be able to tell the swollen part from the "fat" part, but I can, especially since I saw it right after surgery and I am down 12 lbs. since then. Anyway, I have taken it fairly easy this weekend. I walked some last night instead of eating pizza, but nothing like we were doing this past week at school. I guess my body is telling me to lighten up a bit! It does feel so good after I exercise, I must say. It is definitely helping me get may brain out of the hormone fog that it seems to be stuck in!

Anyway, just wanted to check in and say I lost...........! It is a good thing, but I can't help but be honest and say "I WANTED MORE!" Greedy I guess!! LOL

For all the football funs, have a great time tonight and try to be good! (I can't promise anything! LOL)

Laughing at the greedy part. You and I are alike in that aspect for sure!

Yay you for losing!!! I'll do the happy Pixie dance when I'm done typing. Ohhhh do I get AP's for that?

I'm so glad you didn't have the pizza too!

You're doing fantastic!

That's 1.6 sticks of butter! Can't complain about that!! At least it was a loss. I bet next week the scale will show a better result when it makes up for this week.

I hoe you have fun today! Way to go for not acting on the desire for the pizza. HUGE victory for you!!

Congrats on the loss. I know you weren't happy with it, but I think it's great.
I laughed at your I want pizza entry. You made me want some with your gooey cheese description - thanks for the torture. :-) Glad you fought through the urge.

Great job on turning away from the pizza! I love pizza...it's always a struggle not to over-do it.

Listen to your body and don't hurt yourself. My BFF took MONTHS to get over her hyst. Take your time.

.4 is still a victory and yes when I exercise too much I seem to hold water for a few days. Just keep doing the right things and your body will respond. I think you're doing fabulous!
