Another week

Posted on: October 16, 2006

Another week has passed in our family weight loss challenge. I lost one pound this week. Not as much as I’d have liked, but at least it was a loss. My daughter also lost 1 pound. Hubby actually weighed yesterday too and in two weeks he has lost twenty pounds. It’s a big chunk and I know it is mostly from starving himself, but he won’t listen and I get tired of arguing with him so haven’t been saying anything to him about it anymore. My son also weighed to a two pound loss this week. So, we’re all doing really well. It’s nice to be doing this as a family. I must admit it has made it so much easier to pass up the junk with the whole family passing it by.

We went out over the weekend two different times and just knowing that everyone else were passing on their favorites made it easy for me to do the same. We ate pizza Friday evening and normally we would order the large with everything plus bread sticks or garlic bread. We ended up ordering the salad bar and a medium pizza instead. Then yesterday we went bowling and didn’t order nachos or anything else fattening from the snack bar, just some diet sodas. Afterwards we went to Applebee’s and all of us ordered weight watchers selections although I really wanted something from the new Tyler Florence entrees. After eating, we went to the mall and walked and walked and walked. Then on to Sam’s Club and walked some more. I’d say we easily burnt off the majority of the calories we took in. Then on to the furniture store where we looked at couches. We ended up buying a very nice one with recliners at each end. We were in my car though so had to make a trip back home to get our truck to pick it up. Anyway, our Sunday was very nice and fun.

Today, however, I’m fighting a major sinus headache. Or maybe it is allergies, I don’t know. I just know that I feel terrible (upset stomach, stuffy nose, stiff neck, achy muscles, and sneezing, sneezing and more sneezing) Ugh! I hope to feel better as the day progresses, but right now I just want to curl up in bed and go to sleep, which is exactly what I think I’ll do.
