tuesday troubles

Published by at 11:59 am under amy's head,daily,goals,project skinny

I’m having computer issues that are really truly going to drive me around the bend.

At work, firefox has decided to freeze up whenever I try to load up a page on my localhost (basically, a webserver on my computer).

This means that I have to use IE to work on anything.


At home, my internal wireless card in my laptop is not working properly. It will be connected to our wireless network and then disconnect for no reason, and not be able to reconnect. I click “repair” and wait for it to do it’s thing and cross my fingers that it will be able to reconnect. It does this about 15 times in the span of a half hour.



So, February has not been a good month for Project Skinny. I have only lost 1 pound so far. Is it silly to try to go for a 4 lb loss in the last week of February so that I can keep my 5 lbs a month goal?

I don’t think it is, especially considering a few things:

I have a lot of weight to lose, which makes big numbers a big easier than for someone who only has 10-15 lbs to lose,

The first week of a weight loss program can often throw up big numbers. (for me in fact, it was over 6 lbs, back in November.)

I think with me hovering up and down half a pound most of the month, if I really get back to basics, quit dinking around and GET ON IT! a 4 pound loss is feasible.

So I’m aiming for that. Wish me luck!

    You could always go my route and get sick with the nasties and lose 6 lbs in 4 days. No…. never mind… I don’t suggest it.

    Keep on keepin on! 4 lbs is a reasonable goal and you can do it! Good luck!

    Happy Birthday! I hope the cake was wonderful.

    Don’t drive yourself nuts over those pounds, but congratulations on sticking to it. Hard work, that.

    My laptop has been doing the same thing. So incredibly frustrating. I finally gave up and stole the kid’s usb network card. Eventually I will order my own.

    I think losing weight is such a hard thing to keep on doing because some periods of time there are huge results and then you can go weeks with no sign of change. I think it is awesome that you are making it work.
