So it turns out that back in August the receptionist at WW read my total weight loss on my card as -5.8 instead of -58.0 (and even then that was off by a pound because of an adding/subtracting error in June).  Crazy, since they all have been there during the past 17 months that I have been weighing at that location.  Whatever, I got them to fix my book and my card.

I had a weight loss 3 weeks in a row, and then I missed the meeting on Sept 20.  Actually, I chose not to attend because I would have been up about 4 to 6 pounds.  The week before I ate out for dinner and was not making healthy choices for 4 out of 5 nights.

Now I am back on track and even if I am up at the meeting on Sept 27, it would only be by a little bit.

My grandmother and parents are officially moved into the house in Colwood.  My dad will be here on and off until November or December.  For the most part that will not involve weekends, so I will no longer being going out for dinner on Saturdays on a regular basis.

I really want to reach my weight loss goals before the end of the year.  I don't think it is unreasonable to lose 10-15 pounds by Jan 1.

Now that is better.  The scale is moving in the right direction again.  I am a week behind with updates on my blog, but I will post about last week tomorrow.

A funny little note.  Even with a calculator, the women at my WW meeting cannot add and subtract.  Yet again they have my total weight loss off (this time a pound more) for the past couple of months.  Then for the past 3 weeks they had my total weight loss at 5 point something pounds instead of 50 something pounds.  ** Shakes Head **  I will have to get them to fix that on Saturday.

Yep, I Am Still A Huge Kutz

So this long weekend has been all about organizing the house.  My parents headed to Victoria on Thursday morning, so they were no longer underfoot, and I could start to deal with all the stuff that ended up at my house.

I got all the boxes in my room unpacked.  This made me realize that I needed another bookcase.  Sigh.  If I had just realized this a couple of weeks ago, I probably could have got one or two for free from my parents.  Oh well.  I found an awesome one at Ikea for a good price that is in this white-washed wood.  It's what I would like to do with the pine pieces in my bedroom.

Yesterday afternoon I was coming down the stairs with stuff in my hands, and my right foot slipped out from under me and I fell.  I lightly twisted my left ankle.  I wore my ankle brace yesterday and it seems much better today.

What is causing me grief is my left knee.  It ended up behind/underneath me when I landed.  It was super sore last night and I had trouble sleeping (even after taking some painkillers).  This morning when I got up for work I could barely walk to my ensuite bathroom.  I stayed home with my leg elevated.  It does feel better but still a bit aggravating to walk. 

Doh!  I am such a klutz.
