Easter Challenge: Well, um...hm.


My lowest. Still "maintaining" though. Just a pound difference, which, really, is not significant other than it not being a gain. :) No breakthrough.

Eating too many calories to lose, but eating really fresh, really good food, mostly. Let's say 95% is high quality, organic, fresh, home-cooked, non-processed, nutritious food. The rest tends to be, er, chocolate or a piece of some desserty thing. Or coffee syrup, sugarless. I'm hooked on sugar-free coffee syrups now--caramel, cinnamon dolce.

So, well, nothing great to report, but nothing horrible to report, and the stasis pretty much continues.

It's allergy time here for me (and my hairdresser, sister, etc). Something in the air has me (and others) all sneezy and scratchy. Thank God for Zyrtec, even if it's not a diet-friendly drug (appetite increaser). I take one every day and have for years, and when I miss a dose, I know, because the itching becomes unbearable. Combined with Singulair and my steroid inhalers and Serevent , the drugs let me BREATHE and function. I remember the years of NOT functioning, cause my immune system is wonky. But, maybe part of the price is weight-related. It was when my immune system went totally whack and I had to quit working that I gained 130 lbs. Prior to that, I was reasonably active and worked, studied, walked, swam, etc.

So, yeah: 270.2

Goal: to break into the 260's by next weigh-in. Please, Lord. :)

Less than 1/2 a pound and you will be in the 160's. You can do it, you can do it, you can do it!

Allergies are miserable. When I first moved up to Oregon I felt like I'd been hit with a sledgehammer. Thankfully it hasn't been so bad since that first spring. I hope you feel better soon. Fingers crossed that you make your goal this week!
