My Weight Loss Has Stalled

My weight loss has stalled.   backslid.

Since I hurt my knee and had to stop running while we figured that out, I put on a shitpot a whole lot of weight.

I’ve been running again.  The OKC Marathon is next Sunday where I am going to run/walk the Half-Marathon.

I’ve quit Weight Watchers but have begun tracking my calories.  Weight Watchers is a great program, but the leader at the meeting which was convenient for me wasn’t particularly inspiring.  I thought about staying on the internet only version but I really couldn’t figure out how to get questions answered by anyone on the web.  So I quit.

Instead I’ve decided to got back to tracking calories.  Right now I have three tracking apps on my phone and am trying to decide which one to use regularly.  I really like Lose It! with MyFitnesspal coming in a close second but I’ve got my weight and calories going back more than a year on Calorie Count.

Anyway.  As motivation, I’ve decided to reward myself.

For Easter I bought this dress in a size 18.

Isn’t it pretty?  I think I could dress it up with a black blazer or sweater and wear it for work, or go without and wear it to Church or a dinner out with the MOTH.

It didn’t arrive in time, but when it did, it was just a tad too small because I’ve put on so much weight.    There was much knashing of teeth at my house that day.

So, when I can get into my almost-Easter dress, I intend to buy myself this dress in an 18 as a reward.


Except since I can get it customized at some crazy low price, I’m going to get the ankle length version.  I don’t know what it is about this one, but I really love it.  Since I tend to be very goal orientiated, I think this will be just the motivation I need to stay on track!

    Hey, my daughter helped begin the first Memorial Marathon. She was the secretary. My husband was the CFO of Kimray and Thomas Hill, who is now running Kimray with his brother, was one of the founders of the marathon.
    I am with you on this weight thing. It is a pain! I can really lose the weight in the summer, but during the school year it is almost impossible. When I get home, I am so tired that I don’t want to cook. Also, being by myself now, I find that I eat when I am lonely. Oh well, summer is just around the corner and I will start in earnest then….I hope.
    Keep up the good work!
