SHSC Week 4 Update!

Starting weight: 268
Week 3 weight: 258
Amount lost/gained THIS week: -2

So I lost another pound of that dreadful chili/salt/period weight. If I keep this up I'll have a good loss next week because my period will be over, I've been exercising on the HealthRider and I'm feeling good physically, more active and such. Today I will do a 20 minute walking video and play a bit with my puppy girl in spite of the rain, work, get some chores done and life should be good.

I'm sensitive today, I'm trying to control my feelings a bit, I'm defensive and easily hurt. I'm tired and have tons to do, I need to go back and do the flylady system with my 15 minute timer, I bet I'll get more done.

Have I ever mentioned that my legs/thighs hurt every single day when I wake up. I think my bed is doing this, I think it's too hard but the weird part is I'll sleep on my right side and the left side hurts??? What's that about. The pain goes away as I wake up and walk around for the most part, some days it takes a bit longer but once I'm up and moving I'm usually ok within the hour. The pain is so bad sometimes I could cry. I think its because the bed is on the floor (on a box spring on the floor) I thought for sure once I started losing some poundage that it would hurt less but it doesn't. I'm evening wondering if it isn't my back that hurts and somehow makes it feel like it's my legs.

I just ate whole wheat bread (toasted) with smart balance butter/margarine with some applesauce for breakfast. My grandmother used to eat that and I just introduced it to hubby who loves it too. On SBD I think I'm only allowed applesauce once a week, I'm going to recheck this information.

Thanks for stopping by!

Good for you!! 2# is great! Keep it up. Sorry about those aches and pains when you wake up. Mine is in the shoulder area. Miserable, isn't it? Hopefully, as we lose more weight our aches and pains will diminish....I'm counting on it. :)

great loss!!

I have to say I had tons of aches and pains until I had lost a considerable amount of weight (around 50). Keep up with the good work and I'm sure you will see them diminish in no time.

I used to wake up all the time with my arms and hands going to sleep........complete deadness almost. That problem is no longer around and I know the weight loss is the reason ;) Another reason to look beyond the scale ;)

Wow, you are kicking booty! Congrats on the great loss and continued activity. I would recommend getting thyself to the doctor about those thigh pains. Never hurts to make sure it's not PAD and could cause blood clots.

Yay!! Glad to see your doing well!

I can "feel" your pain a bit, as I woke up with the stiffest kneck. My dh complains of his back ( and swears we need a new mattress). I don't know. :) New is good... right?

I admire your courage & conviction.
what separates food from other addictions is the fact that you can't just quit eating, like we have to stop drinking. having owned a fitness center I learned much about exercise & nutrition. if you have any questions. feel free to ask in my comments section
