A little this and a little that

I was up .4 this week at weigh-in which I was fine with...you see, I skipped weigh-in last week but had I gone, I would have been up about 2.4 pounds. So really, I lost 2 pounds this week...but it's registering as a gain in WW world. What sucks is that I will probably gain this week (my trend of late) so my WW log book is going to show 3 gains in a row! Oh well...

I went to the doctor this morning for my annual exam (fun, fun!). This was the first time I'd been to see him since I began WW and he was very impressed with my 64.4 pound weight loss! =) He asked how I was doing it and I told him I joined last November and he said that he recommends it to patients because it's "tried and true" and has "stood the test of time" as far as weight loss programs go.

Given how my body has taken a liking to the 155-157 range, I asked him what a good goal weight for me would be and he said 145, which is what I had already set my WW goal to be. DANG! I was sort of hoping he'd say 155 or that I'm fine where I am, but no. (sigh) But that's okay, I will keep on trudging along in pursuit of these last 10 pounds. This 7-week plateau, if that's what it's called, has to break eventually. Right?? Please tell me it will?! lol....

Oh...the ankle is doing much better. It's still bruised but the swelling has gone way down. Not completely, but it's getting there. I had my doctor look at it today and he's not concerned at all. I really need to get back to my workout routine...not necessarily running...but at least going. Since it happened 2 weeks ago, I've only been to the gym ONCE for 45 minutes. =( Bad, bad...

My parents are coming to town next weekend and my mom and I are going to do some shopping Saturday. I'm not exactly sure what she's looking for, but I'll be trying on new winter coats... the one that started this whole weight loss journey in the first place (size 1x) is now way too big! And the coat that I bought when I discovered the other one was too small is even more gigantic on me (size 2x)! Hopefully I can find something I like before the weather turns cold for good!

Woohoo! You are sooooo close to your goal weight! Congrats!!!! I am glad your ankle is feeling better as well. I am hoping to get back into the swing of things myself.

Glad that your ankle is feeling better. Don't beat yourself up about not going to the gym- when you're injured, it's hard to work around that sometimes. I bet when you're able to start running again, your "plateau" will be back on the downhill.

You are definitely thiiiiiiiis close to your goal weight, and that my dear, is AWESOME. I'm also glad you're getting so close to your goal weight!

I hear ya on the winter coat thing..I just thought about that the other day when I went out to buy jeans (since *none* of mine fit)...there's a lot of money spent when you lose weight, but right now I wouldn't have it any other way!

Wow, you're getting so close to your goal! You will get through this plateau very soon. You are very strong and dedicated to this so it'll happen before you know it.

Have fun shopping!
