Better Than I Expected

Today is weigh day. I almost forgot because I haven't had much determination this last week. When I woke up this morning, it took me about 10 minutes to remember that it was weigh day. So, I hesitantly decided to hop on the scale after my bath. I cringed as I stepped on. I feared that I had gained or at least remained the same from last week. I only worked out one day this week and my calorie consistency has left alot to be desired.

Well, I am very happy to report that I have lost the gain that I had from the medicine as well as 2 additional pounds. This morning's weight is 244. I was very excited about this. It was totally unexpected and I think it may be part of what I needed to put me back on track this week.

Even though I know it may not be the best approach, I am gong to try something new. I am going to try as hard as I can to hit 240 by next Sunday. I am going to have to be super strict with myself and work out everyday regardless of what obstacles I have this week. I want to see results and I need a goal to shoot for in order to get the results I want. So we'll see how this goes. It's only a little over 1/2 a pound a day, and that's do-able.

I am also going to try my best to blog everyday, and not just days when I "feel like it." I find that if I don't "feel" like blogging, then it's probably because I haven't been very focused on my journey. It's easy to ignore our shortcomings if we don't have to face up to it by writing it out. I don't want to be easy on myself at all this week. I can do this. My will is strong. It's my attitude that has sucked this week. I will keep my attitude in check and be back on track.

Thanks for hanging in there with me. It's been a struggle and I am sure that it will continue to be. (BTW, my husband just held a plate full of pizza rolls up in my face to offer me one. I declined, of course. This WILL continue to be a struggle.) I can and will overcome the issues that I deal with everyday. I can do it and so can you, my blogger friends! Let's do this together. Let's make some dreams come true!

I hope you all have a fabulous week full of success story after success story!


  1. Nice loss, very nice indeed. I agree, daily blogging has been paramount to my success. The accountability equation of this process doesn't work if you ignore it.

    Here's to another good week (holding up my water bottle with green tea)
    Your dreams are going to come true my friend. Never let go.
    240---No problem. Work it!

    Love you friend,

  2. WTG!

    It's especially satisfying to pull a nice loss when you're not really expecting it.
