Week 11 Weigh-In

269, 269!! I'm out of that slump that held me back for three weeks! Not to mention that I'm out of the 270's, and I've officially lost my 10% AND I've lost 31 lbs!! What a relief!!

This week was a lot better for me, if you couldn't already tell. I may not have written down everything that I ate, here on the blog. But, I watched what I ate and exercised two times. I also went and got my kinect and xbox, but I still haven't tried to set it up yet. I've just been too busy with stuff going on. I'm hoping that maybe I'll be able to figure that out tomorrow after church.

I don't have much time today for posting, we're heading out the door to go to a car show. But, I just wanted to stop in and update with my loss for the week! 269 is a great number, I'm SO happy to be out of the 270's!! I'm hoping for another two pound loss this week. And I'm hoping to be able to get a bit more exercise in this next week than I did this week.

Week 10 Weigh-In

What a week, what a week. Last Saturday I weighed in at 271, then on Monday I got on the scale to see how things were going, I was so excited to see that I was down to 270, the official 30 lbs were gone! Then, Tuesday was my birthday and I didn't hold back on my eating. Something that I now regret. For breakfast that day I just ate a fiber bar, because I knew what was about to go down that day. For lunch we went to the best Mexican hole-in-the-wall place, which is a good 45 minutes from where we live, and never really get to go to. I had a burrito and a taco. That was the first mess up, I should have just stuck with the burrito. Then we did a lot of walking around and by dinner time we went to Red Lobster. Where I had lobster tail (dipped in butter of course), shrimp with a butter sauce, baked potato with butter and sour cream (the real stuff), lobster nachos, biscuits, salad..... Just a lot of FAT! ugh.... Trust me, it was so good when I was eating it and I didn't eat my entire dinner, but still. I should have just stuck with fish and steamed veggies, which is what i was going to eat, but then I thought, "hey, it's only your birthday once a year, why not?!"... ugh. Then when we got home, I had two cakes because I made one for myself and then my mother in law made one, which I didn't know about until after I made the other one. So, I proceeded to eat two slices of each. Yeah. WHAT THE HECK? Anyway, the past is the past, I can't go back. We got rid of the cakes and my kids ate my leftovers from that dinner the next day for lunch.

I got on the scale on Wednesday, dreading what I might see. 276 popped up. UGH! 276??!! I just gained 5 lbs in one day. Then throughout the week I kept checking to see how things were going. By Friday, I was back down to 271 and I tried to stay good so that I could have a good number for today's weigh in. Hoping and wishing that I would see that 270 number again, this morning I get on the scale to see...271. For the THIRD week in a row, I'm at this stupid number. 271....I hate you, 271. I just want to crawl in a hole and never come out. The worst part is that I can't really blame it on a plateau, this is all MY doing.

So, I'm pledging to myself today. Pledging to try my hardest. To make better choices. To lose this flippin' pound! Right now, as I type this my husband and boys are sitting eating bacon, eggs and grits for breakfast. I'm opting for a smoothie instead. I can do this, I know I can.

Week 9 Weigh-In

Today is another weigh-in, time to check in to see how I've done this week. I must admit that this week wasn't the best for me. I did exercise once, but not the three times that I was wanting to do. I tried to stay within my points most days, but had a couple of slip-ups this week. Not to mention that my monthly visitor has been here since Sunday. Which automatically makes me gain 3 lbs no matter what I do. *sigh*. I stepped on the scale on Wednesday to see how things were going, to see that I was up to 274. Then I got on this morning, for my official weekly weigh-in to see that I'm back down to 271. So, no loss this week, but no gain this week either. My hopes for that one pound loss are still there, not achieved yet. This first 10% has been more difficult to achieve than I'd like to admit!

I'd like someone to please slap me. Get my mind back on track. I've kind of reverted back to my overeating ways. Sure, I'm not overeating and binging on candy and crap. But, it's still not good to overeat, no matter what it is. I've been having a hard time staying on track and reminding myself that I don't need to eat so much food. One serving is enough, there is no need to go back for the seconds. There is no need to snacking mindlessly, even if you are snacking on healthy things.

I've also become a lot more relaxed when it comes to counting and tracking my points. Which is something that I mentioned last week that I wanted to work on. I've been trying to spend less time on the computer, which means less time that I have to track everything down. So, this week I'm going to track online when I can and the rest of the time I'm going to keep a little paper with everything that I ate.

Let's hope that this week I can get that dang 1 lb gone. I've got 20 more pounds that I need to lose by May 31st to stay on track with my goal of losing 50 lbs for my challenge. I have about 3 weeks left in this month and would like to lose 10 lbs it at all possible. I've got my birthday on Tuesday, so I know that I'll have cake that will be eaten and we're planning on going to Red Lobster for dinner. So, I'll just need to remind myself that I need to keep on track that day.

Hoping for that official 10% gone by next week!
