This morning I woke up late and for some reason on the days I am running late I can't seem to find anything to wear. Everything I tried on looked like crap. It was raining outside, so there was no point in fixing my hair. All aroud yucky morning.


I picked out a shirt that I hadn't worn in forever. It is a nice button up dress shirt and I couldn't wear it because it never would button up. Well, I thought what the heck, why not try it? So...I pulled it on and all of the buttons were buttoned! It didn't even pucker up around the chest area=) I was so happy. I couldn't even stop smiling all morning=)

Confession: Yesterday after school I ate like there was no tomorrow. I'm not sure why either. It's like I couldn't stop stuffing my mouth. Maybe my body just needed it, or the stress just got too much. I recognized what I did and it's time to move on.

Cheer: I have been doing good at making dinner every night and not going out to eat!!

Weekend Wrap-up

A lot happened this weekend. A lot of good things.

First, I had class for my Masters from 8-4 on Saturday. I had a great time catching up with people I haven't seen in about a year, some in months. I really like my teacher. She is like the Young Adult book Goddess. I guess you haveto learn from the best to be the best.

Next, I went to my mothers house. I was going to a party with some girls I went to high school with and instead of driving all the way home, I stayed at my moms house. Well, she did something super nice!! So that I wouldn't pigout on pizza and junk food, my mom made this awesome WW friendly meal. So, when I got there I wasn't tempted to eat all of that crap! It was so nice catching up with girls I hadn't seen in like 9 years.

When I woke up the next morning, my mom told me to weigh in. I wasn't too excited, but I'm glad I did. Remember how I was bummed out on Fridayfor only losing 9.2? Well, when I weighed in, I had lost 11.1!! Now, I know there is no way that I could have done that in that short of time, but you know what? I'll take it!! We went out and bought me a new outfit. As soon as I get a camera, I will post pictures. It's super cute=) I know there is no way that this would have happened if I had just went over to that house and pigged out.

Confession: I did eat one piece of pizza. Just one though!

Cheer: I got up early this morning and worked out!! Beautiful belly here I come!! LOL

Almost there!!

So, how did my WW meeting go? Did I hit that 10 pound mark?

Not yet! I lost 1.2 pounds this week for a total of 9.2 lost since November. Even though I didn't hit the 10 pound mark this week, I am happy with my loss. One day at a time.

I did go and pig out at Fudruckers tonight. I was so go all week and I just needed something to make me feel human. I'm not going to beat myself up for it, but I know that's all I get for the week. No more bad nights like that or I won't hit the 10 pounds.

I have a class tomorrow for my Masters. I am really looking forward to it, but this semester is going to be really busy. A LOT of reading. A LOT. At least they are books I like.

Confession: I had my sons cookie tonight beause he didn't like it.

Cheer: I went 2 days without sugar!! I was offered a candy bar today and I turned it down!! Also, I didn't have a coke with lunch today.

Looking good and feeling even better!!

So, I woke up this morning and all I wanted to do was to hit the snooze button and ignore the calling of the workout videos. But, I slowly rolled out of bed and made myself turn on the tv. And you know what? I'm glad I did. I'm glad that I worked out this morning. I feel so much better about myself. Now I have a little free time to write this before I have to go take a shower and get rady for work. Nice.

I wasn't going to weight myself until Friday night at WI, but I was really curious how close I was to that 2 pound goal. Well...I am at a 1.1 loss right now. Can I get there?? Maybe. But you know what? I'm not even going to sweat it. I am going to keep pushing on. If I don't reach that 2 pounds, I'm not going to beat myself up. I tried and didn't give up. Now that is worth celebrating!!

Confession: I did have sugar yesterday. A Milkyway!! What is wrong with me?? I can't kick the sugar!!

Cheer: Even though I wanted to munch on something, anything, I didn't eat anything after dinner. I stayed where I was and didn't snack. I wasn't hungry, so I wasn't going to eat for no reason.

Feel the burn!!

I remember way back when...I was working out almost every morning...I lost around 12 inches off my body...and I felt so energized the rest of the day...where did those glorious days go?? I know!!! Straight back to bed to sleep in.

So, I was thinking last night. How can I expect a 2 pound loss this week after smaller numbers these last few weeks if I don't give it my all? I could get upset at the end of the week for not pulling a bigger number...but if I give it my 100% and I still come up short, then at least I did everything I could.

So, this morning I woke up early to do a workout video on my free On Demand channel. I feel great!! My mood has improved so much!!

This 10 pound loss will be such a big deal for me personally. For those of you who have been around since the begnning, you know that after 3-5 pounds, I quit. Well, not this time!! I am going for gold and it feels so good!!

Confession:  Last night the dinner was so yummy that I made, I had two servings. Two servings? That's a lot. I should have just had one.

Cheer: I made it through the day wihout any sugar. Now that is something to cheer about!! Also, I woke up early to work out!!

Another loss!!

I had a .6 loss this week. Really happy about it. Just two more pounds till I hit the 10 pound mark. Haven't seen that since I started this journey a year ago. Can you believe it took me a whole year to lose just 10 pounds? Well, it didn't come on in a year, and it wont come off in a year. I just need to keep chugging.

I really did grow a lot this past year. I actually went to WW on Christmas Eve and New Years Eve so I wouldn't miss a week. That is huge!! This weekend my kiddos were in a Kiddie BBQ cookoff and my hubby was in the adult one. I came home and slept because it was in the area, and I woke up early to go weigh in at WW. My friend stayed in the car with my boys so I could run in. Now that is dedication. I didn't do too bad at the cookoff. I only had one drink and I only drank about half. Can you believe that? I did eat some BBQ (who wouldn't?) but I did do a lot of walking. So I think I burned it off pretty good.

Confession: I had a York today when I went to the store.

Cheer: I didn't let anything get it the way of me weighing in!!

So far so good

I only lost .2 this past week. I blame it on eating out three nights this week. This is what happend when you always have somewhere else to be after work. I a not going to freak out about it though. A loss is a loss. I should just be happy to not see a gain.

I have two friends who are doing this with me, so I am really enjoying it. I have so much support. I am one happy camper!!

I just have 2.6 more pounds before I lose 10 pounds. I really can see a difference in my face. I had a really nice comment on my facebook page about it. Totally made my day!! Thanks Laura!!

Well, tomorrow is a day off. Not a day off of WW, but a day off of work. I am going to see my mother who is also on WW, so it shouldn't be anything crazy with food.

A total of 7.4 pounds loss!!

Confession: I had some bad things to eat today. Too many to write down.

Cheer: I did really well at dinner and I am really looking forward to getting to 10 pounds loss!!
