anohter weigh in

The 17th I skipped my weigh in. my hubby and I got a free hotel room and went out to dinner, and then went to an all you can eat brazillian grill with our friends to celebrate our friend's birthday. I knew it would stress me out, and I knew it wouldn't be accurate. So on Thanksgiving morning I weighed in, down another 3.4 lbs, for a total of 26.4 since September 5th. So not too shabby. I think I have a decent shot of losing 35 by the end of the year. Not sure with all the celebrating holidays, but Im right on track.

This is the first time losing weight that I actually feel like I can do this. That for once I may be able to get the weight off for good. and that my friends is very motivating. Its slow, but it feels good. And I honestly don't think I have ever felt "good" losing weight. Nice change.

So here's to another week of doing good. :)

23 lbs gone

My weigh in on Thursday put me down another 1.2 lbs. For a total of 23 lbs. I feel like things are working, but I seriously can't stop eating sugar. So, I maybe under my calories/pts, but I am sure not eating the right things. I know why I am craving/wanting/eating sugar, but I have NO willpower. Where do you buy willpower by the way?

Like tonight, dinner was good...lean pork loin, baked potato and fruit cup. But after everyone was eating ice cream and magic shell (I MEAN MAGIC SHELL>>>YUMMMM) So, of course i had to have some. Granted I only had about 1/2 a cup instead of half a gallon. But that magic shell...its 6 pts for 2 tbs. BUT, after that I told my hubby "Hey, I want to go for a walk" so he QUICKLY jumped up and got everything ready for us to go. So as a family we went for a walk, only 15 minutes, but 15 minutes more than normal.

So, in general I am making improvements, but I am having a hard time on other things and I am having a hard time appreciating my improvements. I need to focus on inches too, cause I have lost TONS of those. But I will gladly take tips and tricks from my 2 or 3 readers.

Til next weigh in.

The Weigh in

Well the good news is I lost the 2 lbs I gained, and an additional 1.8. So I am down 21.8 since starting. HOWEVER< my big excitement today is that I am finally back under 300, BARELY, but it still logged in at 299.8. SO, Im counting it. Now to just get far enough from the 3's that its hard to go back there.

Im still craving sugar, especially the INSANE amounts of halloween candy around our house (from my daughter and our 6 year old nephew) plus I bought A TON of candy, because I got it for .50-1.00 a bag for the good stuff, then like no one came trick or treating. But I have learned to limit myself. So I guess if I still lost it wasn't "that bad" but I still need to cut sugar more. I want off this insulin.
