Week 8 Weigh-In

I didn't have the time to post on Saturday about my weigh in. I was just busy getting things done around the house and never had the time to sit down and post anything. I lost another pound last week, bringing my weight loss up to a total of 29 lbs now! I'm now at 271 lbs, almost at that 10% that I've been wanting to get to for the past few weeks. I know it's my fault that things haven't been going as fast as they should be. But, at least I lost and didn't gain.

I've been under a bit of stress for the past few weeks. Ugh... When I get stressed I usually have a ticking eye or something like that. It's actually kind of funny, in an annoying way. These past couple of weeks my neck has been twitching. Which is not very fun. All of this stress comes from stressing out over bills and money crap. People with money never have to stress about that, but those without any sure do! And I don't really like to put the stress on my husband, so I usually just keep to myself and don't tell him what's really going on. Even though he knows that we're pinching pennies really hard, until they scream usually. He doesn't really know everything. I had to use the $100 that I had saved up for the kinect to buy groceries and gas. So, I haven't been able to go out and buy that yet. Even though I really want to go get it. I'm thinking that it will be bought on my birthday. By then we'll have our tax return money back hopefully, so I'll be able to use the money that my friends raised and then use a bit of the tax money to finally go out and get it! I really need to get some exercise in, so that will be super nice to have!!

Speaking of exercise, I haven't been going to aerobics class lately. Again, it's due to money. With gas being so expensive and driving a gas guzzler, I have had to make the choice to either have the gas to pick up my son from school every day or not. I haven't had the luxury of being able to drive out that way twice a day, three times a week for the past couple of weeks now. And then I've just let my days slip by without getting in any other kind of exercise. No excuses, just a bit of an explanation as to why I haven't been to aerobics class lately. I'm not giving up on it, I've wanted to go. I just don't want people to think that I'm a failure and give up.

My goals for this week are to track my foods better. I also want to do some sort of exercise at least three times this week. And to lose one more pound this week to bring me up to 30 lbs lost and an official 10% lost. I really hope I can pull that off!

Stressing over money is not fun. Not fun at all. With gas prices going up and use moving a little further from work worries me. I can understand the stress. Hopefully you will be blessed soon… I love you. Keep up the good work. You are awesome!
