Today's weight: 223 (+1.5 from last week. Boo. Hiss.)

I was insatiable on Sunday.  I ate from the minute I woke up until the minute I went to bed.  I even tried to take a nap to keep myself from eating for an hour, and I woke up craving Twizzlers.  Like, really, who craves Twizzlers?

My period is due to start tomorrow.  Can that be my excuse?

Oh!  I have another excuse!  Sunday night my husband tried to weigh himself and the scale flashed a red 0 and that's all.  So I tried to weigh and it also flashed a red 0.  He replaced the battery last night so maybe the new battery made me gain a pound and a half.

I'll just keep thinking of excuses if I don't get up from this computer.  Time to just buckle down and do the damn thing.

Miracle weigh in

Today's weight: 221.5 (-.5 from last week)

Well, I'm very happy with this weigh in because I've only been back from vacation for 1.5 days. Vacation consisted of burgers, pizza, beer, ice cream, etc.  but it was fun! I'm ready to be on track and to start exercising again. Isn't it weird to be at a point where exercise is fun?

I made an effort to control my portions while on vacation without denying myself any of the good stuff. Obviously that strategy worked!!!!!

Going back to work was so hard on Monday. I still have so much catching up to do. I'd rather go back to bed, hahaha.

Today's weight: 222 (-1.5 from last week)

I'm up very early because I leave today to drive to Ohio to see my family. I'm hoping to time it just right so that I miss rush hour in Charlotte, NC.

The weight loss isn't coming off as fast as it did in the beginning, which is to be expected. But it sure was nice to see the weight fall off the first month.

Time to shower and hit the road!

Independence Day weigh in

Today's weight: 223.5 (+.5 from last week)

Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!!

I'm glad it's only a half of a pound gain from last week. I kinda overate on Saturday and then I had tortilla chips last night so I thought the salt would kill my weigh in. So yeah, I'm happy it's only a half of a pound!

One of the first things I thought when I first started losing weight was, "I can't wait until my stomach is smaller than my boobs." I must've forgotten that the boobs are the first thing to go. Sniff.

Next week will be challenging as I'm driving up to see my mom. That'll be 6 days of being out of my routine. I just need to maintain control. Im actually a little excited for a road trip! It's a 12-hour drive each way. It's just nice to get away for a few days, even if it's not an adventure filled vacation (although I would like to go on one of those soon).
