Back home & Weighed in

Thank you everyone who has been thinking of me this past week. I don't want to get into it too much, but I will say that my grandma passed away this week. Obviously, it's really difficult for our family. She was an amazing person, so funny and spunky and caring and lovable.

This past week was busy. We spent a lot of time in the hospital. I brought workout clothes, but didn't work out once. Go me, I know. I also ate pretty bad; lots of fast food meals, restaurant meals, bagels, donuts, muffins, cookies, ice cream, mini chocolates, jelly beans. Oh well, life happens. Actually, I didn't eat like I probably would have in the past. I ate very poorly many times, but like, I only had one donut for breakfast instead of 2-3 and I had 2 pieces of pizza instead of 4, that kinda thing.

So today I weighed myself and fully expected a gain, but am 201.1, which means I lost 0.4 lbs. How I didn't gain anything with the way I've been eating (and not working out) is beyond me. This will be a healthy week, altho we are going back for her funeral this weekend for four days. Hoping I can continue to lose this week.

Attitude of Gratitude: Our family has been lucky to have someone in our lives who makes saying goodbye to so hard.

Good for you for not gaining. I know it's hard to do while away.

Hope you are back and ready to attach a healthy week! You can do it!!!

Sorry to hear about the passing of your Grandmother. I am glad you and your family have the support of each other.
With regards to what you ate...you did fine. You did way better than fine. Life is hard sometimes, and I am glad you aren't being too hard on yourself, (please dont be hard on yourself.)When things settle down, and you get back to more of a routine, you will get right back on track. Hugs

My condolences to you and your family for your loss.

It's so hard to stick to a meal plan and lose weight when someone you love is so ill and then passes. You did the best you could under those circumstances and just look at how much you've learned. I know how great it feels to find that you're eating less than you normally would, even if you aren't making the best choices in what you're eating. Remember, that's the key to maintenance. Skinny people eat all kinds of food and are able to maintain because they are aware of the portions and in control. You've obviously gotten to that point.
