Kocia - LOL at your cat on your chest. Good suggestions about checking about swimming "specials". I've looked at the my local Y rates online. They don't mention "pool only" or drop-in rates, but I'll call them in the fall. There's a private fitness/golf club with a pool - they have a free 3-day pass to try it out, so I can use that sometime if I don't mind being pressured to join.

Renewed Soul - Your calorie overage yesterday was just a little blip that will get averaged out over the week. I know it's frustrating to get stuck at a weight. Just keep at it, remember that you're getting fitter and healthier even if the scale doesn't move for a week or two. You'll start losing again. And, even when I've been stuck at a weight, during that time I've seen improvements in my body shape.

Tori - hope you don't think I was picking on you. It was said with tough LOVE. You sounded so discouraged. Keep at it. Sometimes even a small success can boost our motivation.

Claire -nice going on the swimming. It's hard to lose 3lbs in a week. That's a 10,500-calorie deficit or 10,500 extra calories spent (or combination of the two). The only time I've lost that much has been on vacation, when I have hours a day to stay active.

Libby - I'm going to try to stay out of the kitchen too.

I know its a long shot, but I have the advantage(?) of only being in week two of my fitness attempt.

Nothing wrong with setting a high goal and going for it. I wasn't trying to say it's impossible - lots of people can lose that much. Just not me unless I have hours of workout time.

Well, I went hunting for my post from yesterday to update from, and it appears it never posted! Oh well, I'll try to update again from what I remember...

1.) c. 1200-1400 calories/day - M: 1201, T: 1151, W: 1742, Th: hopefully under 2000? but who knows...
2.) Drink 64 oz. water/day - M: Y, T: Y, W: Y, Th: Y
3.) Exercise -
M: Gym - Done
T: Run 4 miles - Done
W: Gym - Done
Th: Run 4 miles - Rained like crazy today, so did the gym today, will do the run tomorrow
F: Gym
S: Off
Su: Run 5 miles
4.) Finish making plots for journal article - M: working on it, T: pretty done, I think, hopefully nobody notices that I don't have one of my axes labelled...
5.) Start writing article in earnest - M: ish, T: ish
6.) Get my basals on my insulin pump sorted out - M: getting there?, T: made further adjustments

So yesterday, I was over in calories, but I didn't feel to badly 'cause I just felt like I needed to eat a bit more. After all, I'm training for a half marathon - I don't want to be stupid about trying to restrict too much when I'm expending a lot of energy.

Today, I had a bad low at the gym. I was having pump issues earlier in the day, and I think I had some delayed insulin absorption, and it caused me to plummet like crazy. Unfortunately I forgot that I was out of glucose tablets, and had to mooch candy off of someone else. Then my blood sugar went way high, then I said screw it and had Mexican food and a margarita for dinner. Not my best day. But my blood sugar is back in the normal range and I'm chalking it up to a bad diabetes day. These things happen.

Carolynn, thanks for noticing the 20! It really felt good, even though it didn't last long, haha! We all know how weight fluctuates -- well, on Monday, my official weigh day, I was lucky enough to catch it on the down before it bounced back up on Tuesday. But now I know 20+ IS possible . And, hey, I got to record a 20! Given how loooooooong it has taken me to get there (oh how I wish I was one of those people who *drop* 20 pounds), I deserve to record it!

What a scary story, Joanna! I'm so glad you recognized it and knew exactly what to do to get things back under control. That takes precedence over calories, I'm assuming. Great week on training, by the way. You're fierce!

Robin, you're tearing it up, too! You've already hit all your marks and there are still three more days to go in the week! Woohoo!

I'm so glad you're feeling better, Jho. (((hugs))) Depression stinks.
