274. Just sayin'. Back on track post med manipulation mistake (MMM?). Now, walking. Yes. Oh, and I love oatmeal. No, I mean, I can eat whole oats dry right out of the box even. And I eat the non-cut, whole oats, little banana, little Splenda. It's not even like I'm choosing to eat healthy when I eat that. Still, it's hard to pass on blueberry or brown sugar cinnamon Pop-Tarts when I see them in the cabinet. Of course they're ALL carbs and 400 calories for a single pack of two! Death in a pouch there, mate.

I'm glad things have settled down for you. :) I used to be annoyed by sudden, seemingly unexplained gains in weight. To store a pound of fat, I need to eat 3,500 calories more than my body can burn. So if I'm suddenly up 4 pounds, did I REALLY eat 14,000 extra calories in one day? Not likely!

Also, have you seen ( this ) article about the value of walking even just 10 - 20 minutes a day?

I've learned not to worry about day-to-day weight fluctuations. I can gain or lose over 5 pounds in the course of a day due to fluid retention, so obsessing over ounces, or even 1 pound, is useless. I watch for trends up or down over a week or so, and I keep my "low" (currently 273.5) as a mental note. Now that my med is back in the routine, I've trended down to a half pound from my low, so I'm hopeful that I'll continue to trend on down.

The walking thing, heh. I watched it and I KNOW that's what I need to do. It's just the hating and dreading. I need walking shoes that induce euphoria after 500 feet or something. It would be so much easier then.

Despite all my walking I have to push myself out the door each day. I Despise Exercise. If I have a destination it helps ermmm motivate me.
