This path I walk


Where-feet-trod, originally uploaded by mfcstotler.
This morning Todd and I decided to go hiking. So we went up to the Catoctin Mountains and went hiking. Yes, the picture above is from where we hiked (as are the pictures below). We hiked for about 5 hours. There were some steep uphill segments as we climbed to summit. We enjoyed the views the top! I had packed a picnic lunch. A Turkey sandwich, carrots and dip, a clementine, some fat free chips, and a piece of Cherry Angel food cake. I also had some apples that we ate at a different overlook/vista. We ate it up at Hog Rock (no, I am not lying....it's a vista overlook..and it's called Hog Rock). It was a great day. The weather was perfect and the hiking was fantastic.
The bad part??? Uhhhhh well, thus far this evening I've been a bottomless pit! I've eaten way too much food. I"m not going to stress about it. I worked my tail end off, my body must need the food.
My weight this morning. 183.6. I just can't seem to get it down any further. What's up with this. I will say that I talked to Todd about it this morning. I let him know that very soon I would have to make a decision. At the end of this month, if my weight didn't drop I would have to either let ww go (as I'm not maintaining lifetime) or start paying weekly until I get back under. He didnt' even think about it...and said PAY. I hate to spend the money though! ARRGGHHHH Why does my body like this 180-183 zone???? I've been here for a year!

Thanks for sharing the pictures. Sounds like you had a great day! The path looked like it might be difficult to walk. Sounded like a good eating plan. Check Fitday for calories burned for hiking, you might be surprised and honestly needed to eat more today. I know you can do it. If you have to pay one month, it is not a failure. I know many people that don't go back to WW and end of gaining way more than 2#'s over goal. Email me privately if you need anymore support. I'm here!

Does it feel like a healthy weight for you? You could get a doctor's note saying it's a healthy weight and then not pay. Something to think about anyway. Glad you also enjoyed a hike this weekend!

Perhaps that's where your body wants to be. Maybe you should talk to your doctor and see if they agree that you are heathly at your current weight. Then you could get a note from him/her and maintain at WW. Just a thought...

I love the pictures. It sounds like you and Todd had a great time. I'm with Michelle, does it feel like a health weight for you? I read an article a very long time ago about set point weight. It said our bodies have a certain weight it wants to weigh. Where we feel our best. To go below it we are always hungry. I don't know about that since I've not lost even close to my goal. I've something to think about. Look over your food log and see if anything jumps out at you that needs to be changed.

What a hoot your Friday was. Hope today will be peaceful.
