Wednesday Weigh-in: Day 14 of the 21 Day Challenge

Posted May 12 2010 11:16am
Sisterhood 21-Days Challenge I have put off making this post long enough. I'm just not excited about it. Its not even a weight thing. Its a motivation thing.  Since my new diagnosis I have had a really hard time getting motivated about anything.  I am easily overwhelmed by just about anything.  I had a meltdown in Wal-mart this past weekend because they don't label their GF products (seriously, Wal-mart you are a big enough company - please do your customers a favor and label!).  I have easily justified making bad food choices.  I have been drinking a lot of soda and justify that I have had so much other stuff taken away so I can have as much soda as I want.  Or justify having a McFlurry for lunch (hey, its gluten-free!).  I'm just so frustrated.  I know I'm not making wise choices yet I continue down the same path.  For some reason, I have just really taken this celiac diagnosis really hard.  I think I am just so worried that this is not it.  That there will be something else down the road and once again I'll be disappointed.

I don't think I'm depressed.  Probably more anxious than depressed.  I am seeking out local support groups.  I will be meeting with a dietitian after vacation to help get me started.  Two books came in the mail today ( The G-Free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide by Elizabeth Hasselbeck (from The View) and The First Year: Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free: An Essential Guide for the Newly Diagnosed by Jules E. Dowlar Shepard).  So I'm starting to get things together and I really really don't want to have to go back on meds but I am also trying to start aware enough of my emotions to make the decision to do so if it means being a better wife and mother.

So needless to say, I haven't made any process on my goals.  I've got one week left so hopefully I can at least get them kick started in the next 7 days.  Here is my info:




Habit Goals:
1- Water Intake = 48 ounces (I drink like 2 now so I will start with 48 and work up from there!)
2- Fruits & Vegetables = 5 servings a day
3- Sit-ups & Push-ups = Do 50 sit-ups (reg & reverse) and 25 push-ups every night before bed

Here are my stats:

Starting weight: 164.4

Last week's weigh-in:  147.0
Today's weigh-in:  147.4
Change:  +.4

Overall Change: -17
