Okay, I am writing this with Livewriter. I was using WordPress blogging software before, but it started pissing me off with loading photos, so I am going to try Livewriter.
Not that anybody cares about that, but if things look different, that is why.
Anyhoo, I was writing this post yesterday and never got around to finishing it.
I do my weigh ins on Wednesday normally. Sometimes I will check in on another day, but Wednesdays have always been my ‘official’ WI day.
This week the blog world was filled with many people having great weeks, this being the first part of the year and all, which is exciting.
So I get on the scale on Wed hoping to see some movement. Or rather hear movement since it is a talking scale. I have stayed in my 1500 calorie budget all week and got in exercise every day with riding the trainer, walking and lifting.
I step on and hear “You are at your starting weight.” Come on Mary Lou! Really?
I have this maintaining thing down pat, since this is exactly the weight from 01/01/2012. However, I don’t like that this is what I have to do to maintain.
I just don’t know if I have what it takes to do more to actually lose weight. I don’t want to give up more food. I just cannot go down lower in calories and be happy. At all. I already get hungry as it is, no matter what the macronutrient ratio is that I eat.
I might be able to squeeze in more exercise, but I certainly don’t want exercise to be my life and become a chore.
Now, I am really just bitching here. I am not changing anything up yet since it is early, but it is a bit disheartening. I guess I can chalk a lot of this up to sedentary job, mid 40s and female, right?
On a lighter note:
Billy is going to his forever home this weekend. Well, today he decided to get in the garbage in the shop. I wasn’t thinking and tossed the lid to the canned cat food into the shop garbage, which I normally don’t do. John called me out later and told me to bring my camera. Billy had smelled the lid and got into the garbage, coming into contact with the blue cosmetic colorant bag. Good thing this stuff is nontoxic. However, now we have a blue kitteh:
I hope we can get this off of him before he goes to his new home. So embarrassing!
