Over 50 and Weight Loss Diary Day 7- MORE WEIGHT LOSS! WOOT!


I lost .3 of a pound! That officially totals over 3 lbs of weight loss (or about 5 had I weighed in before day 1, which I didn’t) for the week.

Disclaimer: I don’t sell or represent the Optavia company in any way, I am just a desperately overweight person hoping to stay accountable/remember what I did/journal/review this program.

I am tired, but I am super stressed re my family health concerns now. I work out a lot and probably need to add some snacks.

I’ve realized that I am eating to live now, not the other way around. It’s an interesting adjustment. I’ve never done portion control like this- nor have I eaten so frequently.

My life lately has been a series of family emergencies- most of the fires I have to try to put out myself.

I was hungrier today than usual… and spent MOST OF THE DAY with a lot of stress due to Western Union. We kept trying to send money to my brother outside of the country and stuff kept going awry.

I am currently still holding with them on phone as I type this, because last wire we tried to send omitted an initial. GRRRRR…

After the 6th time and MANY HOURS LATER, it finally went through.

As luck would have it, my email gets a mychart notification at 10 pm saying my mom needed another CT tonight at the hospital (she was admitted this week). Now I am worried she may have fallen again.
