A small loss is still a loss, right?!

So as I mentioned last weekend was a disaster. I ate terrible and delicious things and didn't pay much mind to the diet at hand. Well, Monday I got back on the wagon and had a really good week with no cheating. I weighed in today and I had lost .5 lbs. So... now I am 201.5. I think I may be subconsciously torturing myself because I have been screwing around for the past couple weeks and I could be under that dreadful 200lb mark by now. This weekend needs to be straight on... no cheating... Sunday we have a birthday brunch to attend and I am going to have a really hard time. I plan on sticking to eggs and fruit. We will see how that works out. I would like to drop 3ish lbs next week. Here's hoping!

It has been a while since I blogged...

I have been dietarily neglectful the past week and a half. However, I am back on the hog and serious about losing. Last Friday, June 20th, I weighed in and was at 202lbs. Monday the 23rd I weighed in again at 202lbs. No loss over the weekend which was ENTIRELY my own fault. I had a fun filled weekend of lasagna, 7 layer salad with full fat mayo, bread, wine, and fondue. Then Saturday I drank more wine. Then Sunday I ate a FABULOUS cookie icecream sandwich (the toll house kind) followed by candy, and then a dinner of fried chicken, french fries, coleslaw, and a roll. Oww... and a piece of pie after that. It is amazing I didn't gain 10 lbs over the weekend. I am back at it whole hog since Monday morning and I am serious about getting below that 200 lb mark. I didn't weigh in today because I had to work earlier then usual.... but I am on track food wise and think I could possibly get down to 199 by next Monday. That would be AWESOME! With July 4th coming up I need to really keep motivated... wish me luck!

Today I weighed in...

It has been a rough week. I was TERRIBLE last weekend eating everything in sight. We had house guests (my parents) and we ate out plus grilled with all the trimmings (potato salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad, bread, and more). Then on Sunday my husband and I went to the Tigers game. I hate going to baseball games and decided I would just eat and drink the entire time. We ate breakfast at a greasy spoon... had multiple "adult" beverages and then finished the night off with Mexican food and cheesecake. By Monday morning I was up four pounds. I spent the whole week trying to work off that weight by eating extremely good and working out a lot. I was able to do it and weighed in today at 203.8. That means I am down 40.2lbs!!!!!!!!!! Yeah... I am so glad I made the 40lbs mark. I am back in a size 16ish and am feeling much better about clothes already. I have a wedding to go to in July (the 26th) and am already thinking about losing another 15-20lbs before that. I am looking forward to picking out a dress! I plan to stay on track all weekend... no cheating... or at least VERY LITTLE!

An Ode To My Husband...

I have never really explained how good he is to me and how much this impacts my weight loss. My husband is NO QUESTION my biggest cheerleader. Every time we see someone we haven't seen in a while he will say,"Doesn't she look great?!" "I can't believe how awesome she looks." This, of course, is funny to me.... I feel super fat still and do not think of myself as looking much different. He mentions all the time how impressed and proud he is of my dedication. Once and a while he does bring home food that tortures me.... but he is one of the biggest reasons I have been so successful. I am very lucky in that way.

I wanted to post these pictures side by side....

Having a good week..

I feel good about this week so far. I worked out, have been eating well, and haven't cheated. I am down to 206lbs. That is a total of 38lbs down. I am looking forward to hitting the 40lbs mark, but even more, I am looking forward to being under 200lbs. When I hit the 199 lb mark I will feel extremely good! I am hoping to get to that point in under 3 weeks. We will see if I can make that happen!
