Woah! Five months!

Woah, time really, really is flying by these days.  I can't believe I haven't posted in five months! Oops.

So... yeah, nothing much new, honestly.  I'm not losing weight.  Did carb cycling for two weeks a few months ago and lost approximately nothing.  I got frustrated with my bathroom scale in April and kept meaning to replace it and I still haven't - so I went well over a month without weighing in.  This morning, I weighed myself, stepped off the scale and picked up a bottle of shampoo, weighed myself, stepped off the scale and put down the bottle, and weighed myself again... gaining 0.8 pounds.  What the heck!?  I really hate unreliable measurements.  I did similar tests with scales at Costco and Bed Bath and Beyond this past month and all those scales reacted similarly. Very frustrating. :(  I am the type who is definitely motivated by seeing the scale go down, and it's maddening if that scale isn't working reliably.  Any suggestions? ;)

I need to refocus on the weight loss by moving more and eating less.  Moving more is a big problem as I am still dealing with the pelvic separation and hip issues from pregnancy (and my son is two years old now...).  I hurt my back on Mother's Day but thankfully it is mostly recovered by now.  I am pondering joining the YMCA but haven't had the chance to go visit it yet to see their facilities in person.  It's more expensive than 24 Hour Fitness (where I had a membership for 2 years from a Costco deal, but that ended a year ago), but they include child care while you're working out, and have a kids' tumbling class that would potentially be great for my son.  Hopefully I can check it out sometime over the next week.

I'm hoping to hold myself accountable more with this blog - and if you're reading this, feel free to say hi so I know I'm not doing this alone. :)
