Well I messed up. I didn't refill my water pill when I was suppose to so I went a day without taking it and gained a whole pound back. I feel a little defeated today because of it. It isn't coming right back off as quickly as I put it on. Why can't it be easier than that. It should come right back off. Although I am sure the pill will work it just can't dehydrate my body as quickly. I haven't been to the gym in about a week. Although I have been walking about 40 to 435 minutes a day. I still need to do my strength training. That is important too. I just feel like I am losing myself in the process of losing weight. I feel like everything I want to do I am being held back. I like going to the gym with a buddy and my buddy has not been up to going for about a week. I have to do something to get my buddy moving as it is my son and he could really benefit from going to the gym with me. He doesn't get as much exercise as I do since he is home all day. He does virtual school so he isn't walking around at school. Maybe next year he will be back at a regular school but we are not sure yet. He has really bad social anxiety so we opted for virtual school this year. Time is going by so quickly. Is it normal to start off losing 3+ pounds a week and then going down to 1 or 2 pounds a week weight loss? Is there something I can do that will increase my weight loss for the week? I am just not sure if I am doing everything right. I did have to buy snuggly's for my rings. They were practically falling off my fingers. So I am using little rubber pieces on my rings to keep them from falling off. I am going to get them sized once I lose all of my weight. I have to talk with my doctor to see what is an acceptable weight for my body. She never said where I should be at once I lose weight. I just guessed that I should be somewhere close to what I was in high school. I am not sure if that is possible since having 2 children. I know my thoughts are all over the place today, but I really see this blog as more of a journal for my journey and I have thoughts just randomly popping into my head. Yesterday I actually drank 8 glasses of water. I did so well yesterday. I also got in just over 7,000 steps which is pretty good. My goal for the day was 6,000. So if I keep it up for a couple of weeks I am going to up my steps to 8,000 and see if I can hit that goal. If it is nice out today I think I am going to go for a walk when I get out of work. It will still be day light out and that will be good for me. Walking is always good. I am not sure how far I will walk or for how long but I will do something and quite possibly take my puppies with me.

    A couple years ago when I lost weight, my rings few off my fingers in the bathroom when I was pulling my sweatpants up and went into the toilet. LOL, I had to fish them out, luckily I hadnt flushed yet. They have been resized down 2 sizes.

    Yes it is normal to lose 3+ lbs at first then it slowly will be around 1-2 lbs a week. The first pounds are usually water weight and the body adjusting to new eating and/or exercises. emoticon

    Google BMI calculator and input age, height. This will give you a range of what healthy weight you can be at. It’s just a guideline but similar to what a dr office has with their charts. emoticon

    Exercising at home, could inspire your son to go with you to the gym. On the days you can’t go, 10 mins of any activity does count as movement. SP has tons of videos showing at home exercises with limited space and no equipment. They also have limited mobility exercises like chair exercises too. emoticon

    Great job drinking your 8 glasses of water and doing your steps! emoticon emoticon emoticon
