Planner class

We made new covers for our planners in class last night. I loved the process and had a lot of fun. I like the cover, not sure I love it on my planner.

Weigh Day

Last week: 170
This week: 172.4
Loss/Gain: +2.4

Year status: +.4

I just don't understand.  Why do I keep bouncing up and down in this 3 pound range? I worked really hard this week watching my calories and increasing my activities and walking. We are 21 weeks into the year and I'm still stuck right where I started.

Last time I was on a weight loss mission (about 10 years ago) I was under the care of my doctor. I was taking prescription diet pills and checking in with him every month. I did great and lost the weight I wanted to lose. Slowly and in a healthy way.

My brain keeps telling me now that it isn't possible without that extra help from a pill. R doesn't want me on a diet at all, so taking a pill probably won't happen. I'm lucky he doesn't complain about me counting calories.

I'm not sure what to do. But REALLY want to lose 40-45 pounds!
