So... I am pretty sure not a single person has ever read this!

But it really doesn't matter. This has been a fabulous tool for losing weight! I weighed in today and I have lost a total of 36.2 lbs. That puts me at 207.2lbs! I would like to be really diligent and maybe I can get down below 200lbs by mid June. Wow, that would be amazing!! Only 8lbs to lose and I will be in the 199's! It is almost time for some updated pictures!

Memorial Day weekend was...

tough! Friday I was down to 209.6 lbs. I had a weekend full of cheating and I hope when I weigh in again this Friday I won't have gained!

My first bout of cheating....

It has happened. First I went out of town to babysit my nieces and nephew and ate pizza, cookies, and a cinnamon roll.... Then I went out of town for 3 days for a work conference. I really had minimal control of my eating there and it freaked me out. I brought a lot of my own food and tried my hardest. I still ended up eating plenty of bad things and drinking wine. When I got back I weighed in. I hadn't lost from my previous weigh in but I hadn't gained either. It felt pretty good. I was at 213.8. Today I weighed in at 212. I am down 32 lbs and feel like I have overcome the fear of falling off the wagon and not being able to get back on. I still have lots of trouble with self control but I am making progress. I decided to try the MWLC booster shots today. It is a B vitamin cocktail that is injected into your hip. It was EXTREMELY painful!! I am now waiting for the fantastic results.

So today I decided....

That I am going to post a before shot. It was taken March 9th. I was roughly 240lbs in this picture. This is for my own benefit and for anyone who is reading the blog... your curiosity. I hit the 29lb lost mark today. I weighed in at 215. I am extremely pleased. Today is the end of my 8th week so I am still averaging 3.6 lbs a week. I really couldn't do this without the great people at Medical Weight Loss. They are so supportive and having to visit them 3 times a week is a real kick in the pants. I feel like for the first time I am learning how to eat like a real person and how to enjoy healthy foods. Next week will be a real challenge as I will be out of town 3 days for a conference. I am determined to do well, so I really think I will!
My next goal is get below that 200 lbs mark. It will be an awfully sweet feeling success!
