Living Well Wednesday–2/9/2011

Well,  [switch to announcer voice] It has come to my attention that technical difficulties beyond our control are continuing to be bothersome….

Sorry about no vlog today.  Still having internet connectivity issues, but as I have a new Droid 2 phone [hear angels singing] I can at least check in on my email regularly.  Whew!  I was getting a little bit twitchy about that!

So…on to my update for the Living Well Wednesday meme, hosted by the lovely and talented, Natalie Collinson, on her blog.  Please join in at any time and link up.  We’d love to help support you as you work toward your personal goals!

As for me, I have had a trying week overall.  Lots of mishaps and miscommunications to make it difficult.  Had a weekend full of autistic teenage meltdowns–yikes!  Now, he has a bad cold, so that may have triggered loads of the angst we were dealing with.  So, to sum up, on a personal note, crazy week.

As for the weight loss, I am firmly planted back on my doctor approved moderately low carb plan and I did lose some weight (which is the high point of this otherwise insane week).  If I calculated correctly, I lost 3.6 lbs after holding steady for a bit.  So, I guess you never know how your body will react sometimes!

Looking back, although I have been bummed by what seemed like slow progress and a lot of bouncing around with the same few pounds, I have actually lost a total of 11.6 lbs since the first of the year.   There is nothing like looking at the big picture to help put things in perspective for you!  I guess it is kind of hard to be too bummed about that.

But, on the other hand, I still need to lose 8.4 more pounds to have completely undone the damage that I did over the holidays and be back at “ground zero” for continuing on my weight loss journey.

Still lagging behind on the exercise.  I know that it will likely do me a lot of good, so I need to get back on that wagon.  Can’t do much for my upper body with the tendonitis, but I can walk or do some low impact something without the big arm movements.  I need to abandon my excuses and get to it.

I hope that you all have made some progress this week.  I can’t wait to check out your blog posts!

Wish me luck!

    Chin up Jan! I’ve been working on my weight for over a year (geeezzzz!)and I’m FINALLY down to the last 10 pounds. We’ll get there eventually–together OK?

  2. Jan,

    You are such a sweetheart. You may have experienced a testing week, but you still manage to write so wonderfully and with humour. I love your posts!

    Well done on such a fantastic weight loss – you are doing GREAT!

    Thank you for joining me for another Living Well week.
